Run Find your Happy Pace: Another Mother Runner’s 10 Running Q’s game

on September 17, 2012

Thanks to Lisa Runs for Cupcakes for tagging me on this (so fun!!) and Run Like a Mother for this great idea.  You can click on each of their names to check out their answers.

Run like a mother posted these 10 questions about your running:

Here are my answers:

  1. Best Run Ever.  Hmmm, that’s a hard one.  I would have to say 2012 Shamrock Half Marathon.  I felt great when I finished and had my best PR at the time.  I was also really excited to wait for my husband to finish his first full marathon a few hours later.  It was a great day for us both!
  2. Three words to describe my running.  Calming, Stress-relieving but sometimes mentally tough  (ok that’s more than three, sue me)
  3. My go to run outfit.  I don’t have a go to outfit but I won’t run with out my Zensha calf sleeves
  4. Quirky habit while running I always run while giving an open handed thumbs up sign, lol.  Not on purpose but it does keep my hands from clenching, and it makes for pretty good pictures 🙂
  5. Morning, midday or evening runner?   Morning whenever possible
  6. I won’t run outside when its...snowing or thundering
  7. Worst injury & how I got over it.  Plantar Fasciitis in my right foot.  Ughh.  It lasted for 6 months!!  It was just horrible and mine came out of nowhere.  Bam!  One day I came home from a run and a half hour later I could barely walk.  I got over it by stretching my calves, cross training, stretching, yoga, stretching, wearing a PF boot at night, ice, massage and oh did I mention stretching?  Ok just checking.
  8. I felt most like a badass mother runner when…I finished my first half marathon.  It changed my whole perspective of myself and gave me self-confidence I never knew I had.
  9. My next race is?  This Saturday!!  Heart of Ghent 10K
  10. Potential running goals for 2013.. to get faster and to PR in a half again.  Age is just a number not a speed 🙂
