So without further adieu, here are the questions and my answers.
1) Best run ever? I think I'd have to say The Chilly Half Marathon this year. I threw caution to the wind and ran like my life depended on it. Ended up winning my AG and setting a new PB a day after turning 41. Who says you have to slow down as you get older?

2) Three words that describe your running? Hard, fast & strong. Get your mind out of the gutter, I'm talking about RUNNING.
|Look how red my face is!|
4) Quirky habit while running? If I'm really in a good groove and I'm loving the music I'm listening to, I will move my hands to the beat. I might have to post a video of this to illustrate what I mean.
5) Morning, midday, evening? I used to be an early morning only runner but now that I run with a group, during the week I run at night and on Sundays I run in the morning. Although by not running early in the morning I tend to miss out on things like this now:
6) I won’t run outside when: There is an overabundance of snow or if it's really icy. I flipping HATE running in snow. Seriously loathe it. Almost as much as I loathe Honey Boo Boo.
7) Worst Injury and how you got over it: Rotated pelvis that caused some nasty sciatica. I could still run, thankfully but not for very long. Not what you want to hear when you're in the middle of training for a marathon. It was 3 weeks of physio and daily exercises before I was good to go. I consider myself REALLY lucky that's all I've had to deal with so far. I really really really hope I didn't just jinx myself.
8) I felt most like a badass mother runner when: my run split was faster than my husbands at last year's Woodstock Sprint Triathlon and again at this year's Toronto Island Triathlon.

9) Next race is: The Oakville Half Marathon, Sept 23, 2012.
10) Potential running goal for 2013: Normally I'd have a list because I'm ridiculously goal oriented. But, it is only September. Talk to me again in January. Right now, I have one: Break 1:30 for a half marathon. Oh and get to the start line of Boston healthy and ready to run!
