inquiring minds want to know ...

Like much of the blog world, I am jumping on the Q and A bandwagon, after being tagged by my Hood to Coast Nuunmate, XLMIC.

So, with no further ado, it time for ...TMB

Here's how to play (and you'll want to. There's a prize involved):

1. Ask me a question, whatever you feel like. I promise to answer them all honestly, but since I am on vacation, I can not promise it will be done in a timely manner. I'm thinking Friday, but maybe I'll wait to the weekend and surprise you by posting on a day that I usually don't. Who knows? I like to be mysterious like that.

2. Well, there is no two. I just felt like a numbered list with only one item was too short.

I will accept questions until Tuesday, July 19th at 11:59 p.m. Anyone who as asked me a question at that point will be eligible for a "Runner's Prize Pack" (a random mix of things I love).

OK, that's it. So ask away ...

p.s. Today is the last day to enter my Brooks giveaway HERE ...

Hi there! New follower here. I love your blog! My question is this...have you always been athletic, or is this a passion you have realized later in life?

Kurt @ Becoming An Ironman said...

So many people look at running 10, 20 miles and laugh; "I could never do that!"

On top of that, you've recently put up a goal of doing a 70.3 triathlon.

Do you feel that there is any sport or athletic event/endeavor that you would think "I could never do that" about for any reason?, or have you gotten to a point where you think you could tackle just about anything?
