Three Things Thursday

1. Spin class last night was a success, except that I forgot to eat something before. I was about ready to keel over half way through the class, but made it through. It was an incredible workout head to toe with plenty of core work (off the saddle, hands free) and arms/shoulders (spin push-ups anyone?). I missed this burn!


2. The lovely happy go lucky alex has bestowed upon me the Kreativ Blogger Award. (Thanks Alex!)

The rule is: tell you seven things you don’t already know about me. These will be completely random and not very deep. Don’t mind me. πŸ™‚

1. I don’t like the taste of coffee. This includes coffee-flavoured desserts.

2. I’ve never smoked a cigarette in my life. (And never will.)

3. My dream car is a VW Beetle.

4. My worst habit is biting my nails. Awful.

5. I’ve never learned to type properly, but I still type very quickly. At work they call me the 4-fingered bullet.

6. I’m a chronic putter-awayer. I am constantly putting things away that people are still using.

7. I would love to go on What Not To Wear. (Pretty sure I qualify.)

If you’d like to play along, consider yourself tagged.


3. It’s Julia’s turn to host Take it and Run Thursday and she wants to know:

If a genie were to appear and grant you any three running wishes in the world, what would you choose? It can be anything from superhuman powers, new running inventions, race entries, shoes, you name it!

What would be your three wishes?

1. unlimited funds for apparel/equipment, race registration fees and travel [this would also eliminate the necessity of working, which severely limits my time to run]

2. the lean mean running machine bod that I’m striving for

3. injury-free running!

I’m guessing I’m not alone in those desires… what are your 3 wishes?

Happy Thursday (almost Friday)!

I guess we are friends who get along because we are different right??I am there with you on wish #1. No work and money to spare.. I would finally be able to run, take pictures and write. My DREAM!!

  2. Look at you spinny girl! woo hoo! glad you had a good work out. i am with you on the $$$ for running right now. i would do so many more races all over the world if i could. sigh. back to work i go. lol!

  3. Hmmm…maybe you could do some kind of online virtual what-not-to-wear. That sounds like fun! Don't you just love a good spin class, next to a hard run, it's my favorite!

  4. Ha, my fav car is a VW convertible bug! I live with a putter awayer and it kills me, I leave stuff out just to annoy her. No genie wishes, that stuff always messes up something else.

  5. Congrats on the award!Hmm, 3 wishes, I think mine would be:1) My hubby to be able to run again (can't due to bad knees)2) Shoe manufacturers to keep models I love around for longer3) More VO2 πŸ™‚

  6. Definitely Injury free running and unlimited race funds!! hands down, best choices. πŸ™‚ Stacy and Clinton would LOVE you!! Ah, I'm obsessed with that show. If you go on it, make sure you get some fabulous sheos too. πŸ˜‰

  7. I love "What not to wear"!! It is one of my favorite shows! I would love it if you were on it!I want to be a lean mean running machine too. I feel like even losing 5lbs would make a difference. I know Lacey talked about that yesterday and I think its an interesting point!Happy Thursday!

  8. i echo your 3 wishes!!! awesome that you got back to a spin class! btw, such a small running world eh? I know Deb from your running group as she was in my tri group! LOL unforgettable summer indeed!

  9. No one likes the taste of coffee at first. But you have to be diligent, and then the caffeine addiction will set in, and you'll LOVE the taste of it!

  10. Great wishes! I think we are all looking for $$$, no injuries & a better bod!! What Not To Wear! LOL! I am with you on that one. My poor family only wishes I get picked.

  11. I've never smoked a cigarette either, and I too would love to go on What Not to Wear. My mom and I watch that show together whenever she comes to visit and then try to recreate it when we go shoppping.
