Anyway... I've done my part and kept the chain going. Read on for the questions and answers....
1. What are you most fond of accomplishing in 2010?
Being patient with my injuries and getting back out there! If you haven't been following for long, I've been injured on and off since the NYC marathon last year and finally started running again in July. I'm still not 100%, but I'm getting close and I'm proud of myself for taking the time I needed to recover.
2. What are your running goals for 2011?
Next year is going to be a big year for me. God willing, I will run at least three half marathons, maybe four. I'm not planning on another marathon (at least not yet) but I do want to increase my mileage and maintain a good level of fitness. I'm also hoping to regain some of the speed I've lost through my injuries.
3. What is your favorite race?
Although I didn't get to run it this year, the NYRR Mini 10K is always a great race. I love running this women's only race that starts along Central Park West before heading into the park. There's tons of energy and the women support each other the entire way. It's also a competitive race that draws elite runners.
4. What is your favorite holiday guilty pleasure?
Basically anything chocolate (but what's new?) and cookies. Oh, the cookies. Thankfully there haven't been too many at the office so I haven't been tempted too often!
5. What was your most embarrassing running moment?
I'm sorry to say that I don't really have any embarrassing moments. Which I think, is a good thing! Although it's not very funny, I am pretty embarrassed that I broke my foot running the marathon. I don't enjoy admitting that, but at least I made it across the finish line!
Okay, now it's my turn to tag a few other bloggers. I hate calling people out because I'd really love to learn more about all of you, so instead I'm going to break the chain (sorry Jeff, I hope you're not disappointed!) and ask that you choose one, or more, of the questions and answer in the comments!
I hope you're all having a great week and if you're traveling for the holidays, please travel safely and breathe deeply if things start getting hectic! You'll get there eventually and have so much to be happy about and thankful for!
