Mom on the Run (BTW, good luck in GR on Sun.  I will be holding a big HTFU sign for all my friends running and DS will be along with me clanging a cowbell) tagged me and my assignment is to share 6 random things about myself, as well as a few of my favorite blogs:
1. Mimi Smartypants
Runners' Lounge
Travels with Doofus (author is DH's former co-worker)
Frazzled But Loving It
Running Into The Sun

Hmmm 6 facts...random ones:

1. I have officially been with my hubby for more than half of my life.  I am going on 36 and we met when I was 17.5.

2. In high school I'm not sure I ever ran more than 3 miles in a day, even though I was on the track team (I was a sprinter) through all of junior high and HS.  Nowadays 3 miles is my warm-up (well, it was before the marathon.  For the past week+ I have had a rough time running at all...feelin' kinda beat-up.

3. I have 2 tattoos and am planning on #3 (on my lower left calf area) by the end of the month.  That's it right there... --->
My best friend will be accompanying me and getting her first tattoo--also to commemorate our first marathon.

4. I suck at Math, but in large part because I had crappy teachers in high school.  When I finally had a decent instructor in a remedial college course I was actually OK at Algebra.  I still can't do Geometry to save my life, however.

5. My dream job would be professional actress...stage, screen, commercial--don't care.  I'd just love to be paid to do it.  There is a production company planning to develop in our area (thanks to the incentives the state of MI has put out to the industry to locate here).  I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed that this will eventually mean open auditions for paid acting jobs of any sort.

6. I drive stick and prefer it.  If someone gave me a car with an automatic transmission I'd trade it in towards one with manual.  Might lose some money up front, but it's less hassle in the long run (my first car was an automatic and after dropping over $2k to replace the transmission I'm not eager to repeat that ever again) and better for Winter driving.  Plus it's a helluvalot more fun! :D


  1. Aw... thanks for the link love!!!

    I love that new tattoo. So adorable!!

  2. Thanks Kirstin. I'll be on the lookout for you Sunday!

  3. I can't wait to see the new tat when you get it!! You must take pictures!!

  4. Oh, there will definitely be pics! Probably one when it's fresh and one after it's healed and peeled.
