ROCK THE CASBAH PEOPLE! IT"S MY TURN!!!!!!!!<br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;">1. <b>Why do you run?</b></span><br><div style="text-align:left;"><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">When I began running, I was doing it to get rid of some candy that decided to migrate into my thighs and butt and I knew running produced nice results as I had done it before, but now it’s so much more. There’s this sense of accomplishment and believing in myself that I have gotten from running that has migrated into the rest of my life. Anything is possible. I run because it is the physical manifestation of facing my challenges in life. Running makes me a better person in all areas of my life.</span></span></div>
<br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">2. <b>What is your greatest accomplishment</b>?</span></span><br><div style="text-align:left;"><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">With running??? Probably making it through training for a half marathon in the</span></span> <span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">Texas</span></span> <span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">summer. Next year it will be training for a marathon in the</span></span> <span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">Texas</span></span><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">summer. Why</span></span> <span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">San Antonio</span></span> <span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">holds a marathon in November I don’t know…but if I make it through the summer, I’m gonna ROCK THE CASBAH! In my life, my greatest accomplishments are having good kids (for the most part) and getting accepted into Texas A&M.</span></span></div>
<br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">3. <b>What is your motto/theme song?</b></span></span><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">Motto is “I AM SUPERGIRL” (I even have a pink supergirl tattoo) Theme song is “Rock the Casbah”</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">4. <b>How do you deal with bad runs?</b></span></span><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">I just accept that you can’t have good runs all the time…it’s just one of those things…but when you make it through those bad runs it’s great.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">5. <b>Do you reward yourself for good runs? How?</b></span></span><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">No…I just like the feeling of really good runs. I like the high.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">6. <b>Who do you admire most?</b></span></span><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">In running? My coach. I never knew people ran like that before. Plus, he’s got this laid back and yet serious attitude towards running. He’s disciplined without being anal…he’s got a good balanced approach. In life…I admire anyone who sticks up for what they believe in (even if I disagree with it)</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">7. <b>What is the greatest advice you have ever received?</b></span></span><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">In running? SLOW THE F*CK DOWN! In life? WAIT. (patience is not my virtue)</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">8. <b>What do wish you had learned younger?</b></span></span><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">The value of an education.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">9. <b>What do you wish you could do but can't?</b></span></span><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">I never think of something as “I CAN’T DO IT”. It may be really difficult. I may not do it well. But I honestly believe that anything is possible.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">10. <b>How would your friends describe your personality?</b></span></span><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">Weird, opinionated, adventurous, stubborn, determined, hopefully my friends think I’m nice because my enemies think I’m a royal bitch!</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">11. <b>What do you wear running? favorite outfit?</b></span></span><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">I wear clothes cause I don’t think people would appreciate me running naked! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> Favorite running outfit is probably my running skirt and a white wife beater tank top, or my black shorts and red sports bra.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">12. <b>What has been your favorite race?</b></span></span><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">Man…Vermont Half Marathon was fun to run because of the crowd support, Bayou City Classic 10k was fun because of the weird characters running, Ten for Texas was nice because it was organized and a nice route…I can’t say one was my favorite over another…not yet anyway</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">13. <b>Do you have a goal race right now?</b></span></span><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">Yep, San Antonio Rock N Roll</span></span> <span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">Marathon</span></span> <span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">in 08</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">14. <b>What makes you happy?</b></span></span><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">Good food, good friends, good wine!</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">15. <b>Tell us one interesting thing about you that you haven't said (at least not often) on this forum in the past.</b></span></span><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">I don’t know if this qualifies as interesting or weird but I have an extra bone in my right foot…very small…you’d never notice it if you weren’t a doctor. On the not so weird side, but people seem interested by this…I am going to Texas A&M to get my degree in Anthropology to become an Archaeologist.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Verdana;"><span style="color:#000000;">16. <b>Tell us one interesting thing about another user of this forum that has not been posted (at least not often) on this forum in the past (make sure the other person will not object to posting the info!).</b></span></span><br><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:Verdana;">The only interesting things I know about other users of this forum, that haven’t been posted already, would be considered top secret, so I’ll have to keep my mouth shut…Sorry guys.</span></span>

Time to come back up <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">
But how you do feel about the Casbah, Chele? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Great POTD!! Archaeology is fascinating, good luck with that!!! I always watch the Discovery shows about digs and such and think it would be really cool to do that.
ROCK THE CASBAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!<br><br>
I bet 95% of archaeology is painfully time consuming, detail oriented, meticulous work...this is so not me...but for the time I get to see new places and old things, play in the dirt, and maybe discover something amazing...that's what makes it all worth it!
Hey Chele of the Single L! I really enjoyed reading your POTD, and I particularly liked the best advice you ever got about slowing down. Thanks for sharing!<br><br>
Chelle of the Double L
Thanks CHELLE with the DOUBLE L! LOL
Nice...Thanks for sharing! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
Thank you Sierra
Very your motto and the fact you have a tattoo to back it up!<br><br>
Very cool major in school... sounds like fun!
Thanks turtle...I figure being a mom, wife, student, runner, employee, cooking, cleaning, studying, working, running, yah I'm supergirl! I have to be!
First of all, I apologize for posting on your day! I forgot to post yesterday! I guess I was too busy cooking, cleaning and lighting candles<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">. Your POTD is so informative and I love how you kept your focus on you as a runner. Good Luck with your education and future career in archaeology-very cool!
Thanks Shades!
Now I'm officially envious - that's my dream career!!<br><br>
Have you always been interested in archaeology? Are you going to be like Tomb Raider?
I have always been interested in Archaeology and History...I'd love to be like Tomb Raider...I have to believe there is some element of truth to these stories DAMN IT
Chele, I love reading the Amelia Peabody stories - great archaeology/adventure stories, strong female character.
Are you going to be like Indiana Jones? Cool!<br><br>
I need to heed the advice you were given (in both running & life)! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
Thanks Jen!<br><br>
As for Archaeology books...I recommend some writings by John Lloyd Stephens...very well done, laymens terms, but you almost feel like you're reading a story and not an actual true account. Very well written!
Excellent POTD post ...I love me some wine and some archeology and some anthropology ...oh and some running <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
Great POTD, Chele! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
I'm thinking that the SA Rock and Roll might be my next goal race - if so, I'd love to meet up with you!
