Share I was tagged by Andrew to list 10 Random things about me so this post is for you buddy in honor of your first race coming up! Good luck!
I thought I would list in chronological order:
#1 When I was in my mothers womb she was expecting to have me on July 1st and I arrived August 12th.
#2 In 5th grade I was voted by my peers for the "Miss Clear Creek" award because I snuck candy into camp and all the kids thought I was such a rebel. It was awesome, the leaders were not impressed.
#3 In high school I played soccer, basketball and softball. Basketball is my true love and I held the state record for most 3 pointers made in a game. :)
#4 I went to a private Christian college whose rules were more strict than my parents which isn't easy to do. I loved it.
#5 While on a beach in Mexico the guitar player from Pink Floyd was trying to get me to go back to his beach house so he could "play his guitar" for me. After a two hour conversation he realized it wasn't going to happen.
Conversation included lines like:
Him: "People shouldn't have so many kids because they use up the worlds resources"
Me: "Do you have any kids? (He is old and I am young remember)"
Him: " I've been told I do."
Me: "YOU'VE BEEN TOLD YOU DO?!, Wow, that is really impressive. You lecture on the irresponsibility of having kids yet you don't even know or take care of your own. Nice!"
Him: "So you don't want to go listen to me 'play the guitar'?"
Me: "(trying not to vomit in my mouth) Dude? Really?"
#6 I don't drink coffee or alcohol but drink enough diet coke and eat enough chocolate to cancel out the good of abstaining from the first two.
#7 In my previous life (before children) I got my BS in Health Administration and worked in the finance department of a large hospital. I loved my cubicle, spread sheets and adding machine.
#8 I met my husband at a fraternity party. I was the girl blending in with the wall asking "Why am I here?" Twelve years later he is still my best friend and we have 4 amazing kids. My Family is my life. I gave up a career and chose to be a Stay at Home mom. Once my littlest is in school I will likely go to work somewhere. Trying to figure that out.
#9 I'm a Mormon
#10 Since this is a running blog I'll leave you with one random running thing about me. The first race I ever ran was a Marathon. I'm now training for a 5K :)
Now to tag 3 people, I think I'll go with some of my Arizona peeps:
Running Through Phoenix
The Boring Runner
