Liebster Award!!

Sorry, What?  The Liebster award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

Copied straight from Holly, who tagged me at  Running and Baking oh my!
The Liebster award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.

4. Notify the people you have tagged.

Sounds fun right?  I thought so.  So here are my 11 random things about….well me!
1)  I didn’t start running until I was in my late thirties.  (my friend Susan drew this pic of me, lol)
2)  My favorite post race treat….cupcakes!  (This is decal is on my van I swear)
3)  I love ALL kinds of music.  Everything from Christian to Hard Rock.
4)  I use to really dislike Yoga, now I do it every Sunday, but I am still a beginner.
(someone’s been watching Mommy do yoga)
5)  I don’t take myself too seriously (that’s me in the middle)
6)  I ran down the street dressed in Star Wars attire to celebrate InterGalactic Star Wars day…see number 5.  And I have the picture to prove it.
7)  I volunteer in the infant room at my church to get my “baby fix”.  My three are a handful enough.
8) I really believe that Happiness is not a destination, its a way of life
9)  I am hooked on MUFA’s (see flat belly diet).  Plus I think the word is just silly 🙂
MUFA is the acronym for monounsaturated fatty acids
10)  I hide my dark chocolate so that my kids can’t eat it all on me.  It’s a MUFA!
11)  I love Jesus.  A LOT.
OK here are my answers to the questions from Holly:

1. How do you stay fit? What is your activity of choice and how did you get into it?

Running.  I got into in when my husband was deployed to Afghanistan to get some “me” time and stay sane.

A neighbor convinced me I could run a half marathon.  It took a lot of convincing and now I am hooked!
