Remember when you were a kid and you'd get together with a bunch of friends, either on the playground during recess or in the neighborhood on a hot summer day and someone would suggest playing a simple game of tag? I remember running so quickly that I could hardly breathe, and then laughing so hard that I could hardly breathe. It was all fun and games. One of the perfect outdoor games that pretty much anyone could play. If you were 'it' you wanted to tag someone, probably anyone, as fast as you could and of course, you were running as fast as you could so you wouldn't be tagged.

Well, yesterday I was tagged, but it's different this time. This is my first time being tagged in bloggerland, so I'm thrilled!

Julie, from Julie's Running Blog, tagged me after she listed 10 things that make her happy. So, check out my list and then head over and check out Julie's blog! This is a bit hard, because there really are a lot of things that make me happy, so picking just 10 is rough, but here it goes, in no particular order (except #1).

1. My husband, parents, and family.
2. A GREAT workout.
3. Helping someone without knowing it.
4. Biting into a juicy, crunchy apple.
5. A cute new running outfit or pair of running shoes.
6. Chocolate
7. A great song
8. A day at my cottage (sunny, rainy, hot, cold, doesn't matter)

9. The smell of fresh cut grass
10. Crossing the finish line

So, those are my 10 things. Now, it's my turn to tag two bloggers and they are.....
Heather at Run Faster Mommy
J at Morning Runner (gotta love that name!)

I can't wait to read their lists!

Oh how fun, thanks for tagging me! I'll have to work on this one later! And I agree with all 10 of your happy things (even though I don't have a cottage, but I spent many summers at my friend's lake cottage growing up!)

Have a great day!
