Ten Running Questions

This survey is from olivetorun.com, an awesome new blog that I ran across this week. Feel free to fill it out yourself and repost with a link back to olivetorun.com!

#1. Would you rather bike 100 miles or run 100 miles? Definitely run 100 miles. Ultra marathons are SO intriguing! It’s on my bucket list to run one of these someday. They have some crazy hard 100-mile trail runs on the North Shore! And I’m definitely not the world’s best biker…

#2. Wear TOO many clothes and then have to carry them because it’s too hot or wear TOO little clothes and endure a little coldness? Wear too little and endure the cold. I can’t stand overheating on a run; your body warms itself up just fine! Now if I underdress on a run colder than -10°F, then I’ll change my answer.

#3. Would you rather run without your GPS or without your Music? Run without music. I don’t usually run with my iPod anyways, unless I need a little extra motivation to get out the door.

#4. Would you rather run socially or run competitively? Both! I love to visit with and meet new people but I also LOVE to race.

#5. Would you rather start a race in the front or in the back? I like to start in the back and make myself start slower than my body wants to go. I try to run conservatively for the first half marathon and then kick it with whatever I have left for the remainder of the race!

#6. Would you rather run a race to raise money for a charity or in remembrance of someone? I would rather run to raise money for a local person or charity.
Racing with my favorite running partner!

#7. Would you rather have an awful race experience and PR or have the time of your life and NOT PR? I’d rather have the time of my life! Running is supposed to be a good time; so the PR wouldn’t be worth it if it was an awful experience.

#8. Would you rather run on the right side of the road during a race or the left? Smack dab in the middle of the road.That is, when it's a desolate road where I won't be hit by a vehicle... Or, in a perfect world, I would be running on a trail somewhere in the woods.

#9. Would you rather shower and take a nap after a long run/race or shower and be productive? It sounds nice to take a shower and a nap after a long run or race; that’s a very nice though. Realistically, it’s not an option because a little certain someone wants to eat right after I get in from each run! And there is always plenty to get done around home. It’s just a plus that I CAN get a run or a race in!

#10. Run with your significant other or your friends? My husband IS my best friend and my significant other. I enjoy running with everyone, if they truly want to be out running. If someone is going to groan and grumble the whole time, I would rather not run with them then!

Do you have any running endeavors planned for the weekend?

  1. I love your answers to this! I swear I am going to get hit by a car one of these mornings because I ALWAYS run in the road- I don't know why but I find it more comfortable!

    Also, agreed on the ultras- VERY intriguing!

    1. Ha! I'm with you there - at least in the early morning there is less traffic, but for after work runs, running in the road doesn't go to well :s Except for on the gravel country roads.

  2. I was wondering when you were going to post again. :-) My running endeavors for the weekend...Today was my long run day, 4 miles. It took me 51.15 mins. Not bad for my first 4 miles. Tomorrow I rest.
