Alright, here it is…if you make it all the way down you will be rewarded with an inspirational quote. =)
Questions that Athlete in Me asked:
What do you love most about blogging?
It’s hard to narrow down to just one thing. I love the people I’ve met and the information/inspiration I’ve learned and shared. I love the accountability it brings to my training.
What are your hobbies except for blogging?
Um…running. That’s pretty much all I do now. But when I do get some free time I like it to spend it creating. I paint, or hot glue something or cut a tshirt.
What’s your favorite blog that you read daily?
Again, hard to narrow down to one but I love Mama Laughlin! She is everything I wish I could say but don’t because my blog is not anonymous. My other favorites are the ones I’ve nominated below.
What snack do you eat at the movies?
Oh man…I used to devour entire packages of twizzlers (the big one not the little one next to the check out) during a movie. Now I share a small popcorn with Josh and bring a few fun size candy bars or something.
If you could travel back in time, what era would you choose and why?
I believe I would have been lovely in the 60’s.
Iphone or Android?
Well I’ve never had an Android, and I just recently got an iphone and I love it so…iphone!
If you could pick a dream profession, what would it be?
See #1 in the “Random Lindsay” section. But if I had to choose a dream job (disregarding any actual skills or knowledge I possess) I think it would be a motivational speaker or the person who chooses the songs in movies.
Best piece of advice you’ve ever given?
Well I can’t claim this as my own but it’s a quote I pass along quite a bit.
“You are the person who has to decide. Whether you’ll do it or toss it aside; you are the person who makes up your mind. Whether you’ll lead or will linger behind. Whether you’ll try for the goal that’s afar, or just be contented to stay where you are.”-Edgar A. Guest
Best time to workout for you?
Might as well have asked me nature or nurture!! I prefer to work out in the morning. I like to get it done and I feel awesome all day. BUT, I always perform better at the end of the day. I try to mix it up throughout the week.
Must have item on you at all times? (pick one!)
Which country, other than your current residence, do you love most?
I, unfortunately, have never been out of the country. Other than my honeymoon cruise to the Bahamas and Puerto Rico and I’m not sure that spending 4 hours on the beach of a country counts as visiting it. But I love the idea of living in Iceland or Norway.
