I was tagged by my friend HoHo Runs to answer questions about my running favorites.
1) Location: Trail, Road, or Indoors?
Hands down — ROAD. I am learning to love the trail, but it is new for me. The road is the place I have logged all 68 of my races and it is where my feet feel the best. As a creature of habit, it’s just perfect for me.
2) Time of Day: Morning, Noon, or Evening?
Morning. I am a morning person. As I write this blog post at 6:15am, I am at my happiest. It took some training to become a morning person and consistantly join my friends at 5:30am, but I’m so happy to be out there!
3) Weather: Sunshine, Mild or Hot?
I honestly don’t care. Which is 100% shocking because I have an opinion about EVERYTHING. But through training, I will run in anything from snow to rain to full August-in-DC humidity. I guess my favorite weather for a race is 45 and sunny – hence why I am always adding spring races to my calendar.
4) Fuel: Before, After, and Sometimes During?
A LITTLE bit before. If I’m going over 6 miles, during (a Honey Stinger Waffle if you are asking), and always after. I am partial to smoothies these days, but it always goes in phases.
5) Accessories: Music, Watch & More?
Ahhh… I love accessories. Right now – iPhone, Garmin (but I need to upgrade), Pro-Compression socks, and my Nathan backpack. Now that it’s getting sunny – sunglasses!
6) Rewards: Food, Wine, or …?
CHEESEBURGERS, but only after a half-marathon or longer. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them and that’s my race night go-to treat.
7) Type of Run: Long, tempo, intervals, hill repeats, progression, or recovery/easy?
Long. I love to go 10 miles or longer – especially with my MRTT friends. The miles fly by and I always feel accomplished – especially when I am done by 8am and most of the world is still sleeping!
I’m supposed to tag 7 others. If you’ve already been tagged, I apologize. Tag…You are It!
