Five Things Friday

This week's theme of Five Things Friday is 5 Things About Me.

So here are five things about me!


  1. Do you know those people who say: 'Don't mind the mess!' and then you walk in, and it's clean as a whistle? They're the same kind of people who say: 'Oh don't mind me. I'm such a slow runner, I'll néver be able to keep up!' And then you eat their dust? That person is nót me. When I say I'm not very fast, I'm not kidding. It takes me 45 minutes to run 5K. And that's after 13 years of running.

  2. On a non-running note: I hate answering the telephone. I always get flustered, and say stupid things. One time the telephone rang and I answered with: 'Lord bless this food.'

  3. I get a kick out of watching myself on my crosstrainer...

  4. And while I'm watching myself on my elliptical trainer, I like to listen to 'Sexy Thing'...

  5. I never participate in running events, because I hate crowds. But sometimes it seems like I'm the only runner who runs 'just because'.

This is what I like to listen to, while working out on the elliptical trainer while watching my reflection in the window...

  1. Great song choice! I wish I felt that way while working out, but I usually just feel like a hot, sweaty mess.

  2. Your phone comment made me laugh. While I don't dislike answering the phone, I HATE calling to order food. I have no idea why. It's completely illogical. I realize this. But I still won't do it. I'll order online or my sidekick will call.

  5. Love the song choice!! I hate the phone too! I am too busy and the chance of you calling me while Im yelling at my kids is too great for me to pick up the phone!

  6. I seriously just finished chuckling, I love that you answered the phone like that, LOL
    It's pretty cool you run "just because" and times don't really matter, if you love it and you enjoy doing it then any pace is great!

  7. Haha I do not like answering the phone either! I remember spending hours on it as a teenager. Luckily my parents have learned to text :)

  8. I love that you run just because! Just because I'm a race addict doesn't mean we all need to be - we all have our own reasons!

  9. For a long time I ran just to run because I didn't want to sign up for races by myself. I wish I could run more just because, but I find it so motivating having a race to work towards!

  10. I love the bit about answering the phone :) I get nervous with the phone for some reason too. I have to admit I love the energy and crowds of races and events. Training for them definitely motivates me to get my weekly runs in!
