Hello divas and happy Friday! The weekend is here. As you are reading this post, I am hanging out with some of my favorite bloggers at Fitbloggin’ in Savannah. And trying not to die doing some awesome workouts. I hope that you are keeping up with the goings on at the conference through my social media channels.
It’s Friday which means it is time for another edition of 5 Things Friday. Each week I link-up with the fabulous girls at Eat Pray Run DC, You Signed Up for What and Mar on the Run. This week the theme for the link-up is 5 Things About Me. So today I am sharing 5 things you may or may not know about me.
I’m always smiling. I’m not kidding on this. I was a cheerleader all through middle school and high school and was voted Most Enthusiastic more than once. I am just a very positive person who likes to see the glass half full. When I say always smiling, this means even in running photos. I have yet to see a picture of me running without a smile on my face.
I am a HUGE Disney fan. Like I mean huge. Growing up, my family went to Disney World about ever 3 years or so from the time I was a baby so I guess it got ingrained into me at an early age. I even “mailed” my baby bottles to Mickey Mouse when I was 2. Apparently I didn’t want to give them up (I was 2 after all) so my mother told me if we mailed them to Mickey, we could go see him later that summer. This obsession has meant that I still go to Disney every few years. Including a spring break in college (who needs the beach when you have Mickey Mouse?) and planning vacations when I can go to either US Disney park and run a race. I am the crazy adult waiting in line to get a character’s autograph, usually with a new set of mouse ears on, smiling for pics with my girl Belle. Oh and when I run, it is in full costume.
I LOVE sports. It doesn’t really matter. I will watch just about any sport of tv. I am partial to my Atlanta teams (Braves, Falcons, Hawks) and my UGA Bulldogs for college football (this is the south – it is a religion down here). But I will watch it all. I have loved the World Cup so far as I used to play soccer so I find the sport very entertaining. I love sports so much, I tend to go a little giddy when I get to go on a run at a sports venue (see my Braves 5K at Turner Field, The Color Run at Atlanta at Atlanta Motor Speedway and The Disneyland Half Marathon through Angel Stadium.)
Fur children. I do not have any children of my own yet, but I do have 3 fur children. I have two older cats that I have had since they were kittens and a 2.5 year old 9 lb. chihuahua mix who thinks she is human. Seriously. She is that spoiled. But she is a happy puppy dog and always brings a smile to my face.
Pink is my color. I guess it goes along with my positive attitude and happy persona, but pink is my favorite color (as if you didn’t already know that by looking at this blog). I love anything pink. And have quite a bit clothing in that particular color.
