11 Questions from Exposed: On My Way To A Better Me
1. What is your favorite book?
Oh man, for a voracious reader like me, this is tough… “Room” by Emma Donoghue
2. Why did you start blogging?
I’ve had a blog in some sense since LiveJournal was big. This one I started to chronicle my running journey. As I’ve continued to blog, it’s moved on to cover weight, faith, life, etc. as well.
3. Who inspires you the most?
I know right now it’s a trite answer, but honestly it’s Diana Nyad. If anyone ever personified never, ever, ever give up, it’s her.
4. Any advice for new bloggers?
Write what you know and what you’re passionate about. Don’t worry about length of posts or *trying* to be a certain way. Just keep going, and eventually you’ll find your voice.
5. What do you like to do in your free time?
What’s that? I love vacations that involve travel – foreign, domestic (especially Disney), cruises, etc. I read. I dabble in writing. I go to movies and when I can theatre or opera.
6. Do you have a favorite workout? If so, what?
Running. I also love yoga, but I’m not a devotee of any one style (though I refuse to do hot yoga…it’s really not that good for you)
7. What is your greatest achievement so far?
Finishing a marathon. That I’ve done it three times blows my mind.
8. What is your favorite movie?
Spirit of the Marathon. The first one. I can watch it over and over.
9. What is one of your goals for the future?
I have a long way to go to get there (still a long way from the maximum marathon time allowed), but I would love to run Comrades one day!
10. If you could visit any place in the world, where would you go?
Ireland. All over – not just Dublin where I’ve been and love it there.
