1- How would you describe your running 10 years ago?
I was just getting started....my first marathon was 5/99 and my first 1/2 was 11/98
2-What is your best and worst run/race experience?
Worst....my Ironman....all 17+ miserable hours.....nothing quite as humiliating as walking your bike up Ozark hills because your legs are so cramped that you can't go fast enough to keep the bike upright. Best....I would go with my PR marathon....RNR-Az...not the nicest course, but it was for me that year.
3- Why do you run?
I started to run to get back in shape and found I enjoyed it.....then I made a lot of friends running and it just became my favorite thing to do.
4- What is the best or worst piece of advice you've been given about running?
Altitude won't bother you that much (I told myself this before Fort Collins and then again a few weeks later at Wyoming).
5- Tell us something surprising about yourself that not many people would know.
I am bald by choice, I never played the accordion as a child, and ABBA is not one of my favorite groups.
Here are the rules guidelines:If you have been tagged, you will find your name at the end of this post. You should then, copy the rules (or your version of them), and the set of questions onto your blog post, provide your own answers, and then tag 5 new people.Just to be sure that everyone tagged knows they have been invited to play, go to their blogs and leave them a special comment letting them know, and refer them to your blog for details.One more thing, once they've answered the questions on their own blog, they should come back to yours to tell you.
Addendum.....if you are tagged by more than one person within 24 hours with the same questions, you are thereby not required to forward these questions on to 5 other people.
