What’s a Liebster?
So my dear frunner friend Jen at http://www.jenzenator.com nominated me for a Liebster. I had heard the term before and did some searching and basically its a way to share some blog love and learn more about fellow blogger friends.
No harm no foul, I’m in!
Here are the 10 questions she asked:
What is your blog about?
Basically its my point of view for race recaps, motivating others to get started with their health and fitness journey and what I have personally learned along the way.
When did you start your running/fitness journey and why? I started in 2011 to run the Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans Half Marathon in New Orleans as a new challenge and way to help maintain my weight. I have been hooked since.
What’s been your favorite race so far? I would have to say Disney Princess Half Marathon 2013. Disney is just pure magic with every step.
What is the fitness gear you can’t live without right now? That’s easy, My ASICS GT -2000v2 running shoes. They recently carried me to my first Full Marathon in February.
What advice would you have for someone just starting out on their fitness journey? Take it one mile at a time and Enjoy the Journey.
What do you eat before a long run/race or hard workout? One slice of wheat bread with honey plus water has been my go to for Half Marathons and long training runs.
How do you find time to exercise in your busy life schedule? I get to work early so I can get off at a decent time to hit the gym or go for a run around 5:30pm so I can try to be done by 7pm in the evenings. Communication with hubby and my daughter is key.
Where do you find motivation to keep going? I love motivational pictures and mantras like this one:
What do you do to splurge or indulge? Updating my playlist or getting new running gear is a way for me to splurge and keep me motivated at the same time.
Name a random thing about you that most people don’t know. I hate eggs. Even the smell of them makes me want to vomit. (you asked for random)
