Now I have to come up with seven facts that are maybe a little bit interesting, but I make no promises.
Fun awesome fact # 1)
I lived in Anchorage Alaska for two years.
|Front yard visitor|
Fun fact #2)
I have 8 million degrees. Okay I have three. One BA, and MPA and an MA. I was working on my PhD but have recently decided to go in a new direction. That direction being......not finishing my PhD. After some sleepless nights, serious thinking and one break down in my super awesome adviser's office I made one of the most difficult decisions to date in deciding that I was not happy with what I was doing and wanted to make a change. And Bam I made it and it is kind of scary right now while I regroup and try to move in the direction I want to be, but I am happy with my decision and excited for the future.
Fun fact #3)
I knew I wanted to marry this guy after about three days.
|Let them eat cake|
Fun fact #4)
I hate coconut and cole slaw. Bleh. I just threw up a little bit typing that.
Fun fact #5)
I am amazingly uncoordinated. I wasn't always this way. It seems to be getting worse with age. I can't walk in a straight line or avoid tripping over myself or other things. I am hoping that taking some fitness classes that require me to move in directions other than forward will help with this. Zumba totally kicked my butt today so I have fingers crossed I get more coordinated as I am forced to do some lateral movements.
Fun fact # 6
I learned Persian Farsi while in the Army. Can't speak a word of it now. Except "I can't speak Farsi well because I never practice".
Fun fact #7
I have two sisters and two brothers and I am the oldest. So responsible and wise.
Funny enough the other day while I was running I got to thinking about bloggers whose blogs I love who I would want to go on a run with to chat it up. Of course many of these awesome runners would have to slow down so I could gasp out my questions but in my mind we have a total blast ( and I can crank out 7:30 miles, hey this is my dream).
Nominations: Blogs that Rock My World (and who I want to be besties with in real life)
Lisa at Because I Can: relay extraordinaire and total speedster
Becca at 50 marathons in 50 states: she is in Peru... running a marathon...awesome
Yo Momma at Yo Momma Runs: witty and super fast, plus 4 kids, not even sure how she does it
Heather at Just a Colorado girl: besides running she also scales mountains, has skills at winter sports, and gets to live in my home state (not jealous at all, AT ALL).
Katelin at HealthyFatKid: she had me at "inner FatKid" and totally kicks running's butt
Jina at Behold the Turtle: we are both obsessed with Jessica Simpson and other celebrities, hate treadmills and both have (try to) embraced the slow and steady. Only matter of time till I awkwardly demand a meet up at some sweaty, humidity filled half marathon in Florida.
Head over to these lovely ladies blogs and check them out.
