1. Why do you run? My reasons change- sometimes purely physical, sometimes it's more the mental aspects of it. I love the feeling I get when I challenge myself beyond my comfort level.<br><br>
2. What is your greatest accomplishment? I was going through a really rough time in the spring of 2006- I was training for the London marathon at the time and my training wasn't what it should be nor was my nutrtion- I dropped several pounds without trying and overall my energy was really low. I ended up pulling myself up by the bootstraps (or whatever that phrase is) and PR'ing that year by 15 minutes.<br><br>
3. What is your motto/theme song? Life is how you change it.<br><br>
4. How do you deal with bad runs? Recently, I've had more bad ones than good, so I just tell myself that the bad ones will generally lead to a good one!<br><br>
5. Do you reward yourself for good runs? How? No...but whenever I've done a marathon I always buy a jacket or some other type of commerative clothing...guess that counts.<br><br>
6. Who do you admire most? My husband because he's the hardest worker I've ever met.<br><br>
7. What is the greatest advice you have ever received? Whatever you can do, do even better.<br><br>
8. What do wish you had learned younger? Not to settle in life.<br><br>
9. What do you wish you could do but can't? Run faster...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
10. How would your friends describe your personality? Loyal, funny, easygoing.<br><br>
11. What do you wear running? favorite outfit? Since I moved to SoCal from Boston, I wear shorts and a short sleeve shirt every day- it's a great change.<br><br>
12. What has been your favorite race? London marathon<br><br>
13. Do you have a goal race right now? Surf City half marathon in Feb.<br><br>
14. What makes you happy? olives, good red wine, yoga, my cats and my husband.<br><br>
15. Tell us one interesting thing about you that you haven't said (at least not often) on this forum in the past.<br>
I was picked to be a 2007 sponsored athlete for Goody (Team Stay Put- I believe Merigayle is on it too), so that was a big highlight of my year this year. Unfortunately because I had to have surgery this summer, some of my goal races for this year went out the window.<br><br>
16. 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!).<br><b>Auntie Moe</b> has a great knack for finding shoe bargains!

Good to know you a little, kjboston. How long have you been in SoCal? That must be a huge change from Boston. Good luck to you at Surf City!
