A Little Liebster Q&A

Big thanks to Mindy at Road Runner Girl who nominated me for the Liebster Award!!  This is my second time to be nominated (see here for my first time) and seeing as how I love Mindy's blog, I was totally honored by her nomination!  Her questions are completely different though from my first nomination so I thought, why not?  Plus I love a little Q&A so here you go!

1. Why did you start blogging?
I actually started blogging almost 4 years ago (CRAZY) after my first miscarriage while I was waiting around to find out if we had gotten pregnant again.

2. What was your first post?
Here!  Gosh I was so original back then - LOL.  

3. What is your favorite time of the year and why?
I love fall - I love the cooler temperatures and the leaves turning colors!  Fall in Tennessee is absolutely beautiful :)

4. Why and how did you start running?
I actually ran my first 5K the day after I found out I was pregnant with the first baby I miscarried.  After two miscarriages though I kinda gave up on exercise altogether until after Morgan was born.  I began running again when I returned to work from maternity leave and my work buddy was starting Couch 2 5K and wanted someone to do it with her and our ultimate goal quickly became to train for the 2013 Disney Marathon - the rest, as they say, is history!

5. What is your biggest accomplishment?
I may have a doctorate degree but hands down my biggest accomplishment is my girls!


6. What is your favorite book?
"To Kill a Mockingbird" - SO glad they made us read that my freshman year of high school.

7. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
My self image - I never seem to be happy with myself.  If everyone else loves me the way that I am, why can't I?

8. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go?
You mean, besides Disney??  Seriously, I've never been overseas, I would love to go to Paris or the Mediterranean.



9. What do you do when you are stressed?
Before I would say eat but now when I get stressed I try to get active - if I'm at work, I'll go outside and go for a walk.

10. Do you prefer warm or cold weather when running?
Uhm...both??  I honestly love the temperature to be in the low 50s, that's about near perfect running weather!


And now I'm going to break the rules a bit; since I have been nominated previously, I'd like to see YOUR answers to some of these questions!!!  Leave me a comment and answer your favorite question from above; I can't wait to learn more about you!  And thank again to Mindy for my nomination!!!
