I know some of the above blogs have more than 200 followers, but they’re still awesome and you should check them all out!


Here are my questions from Lindsay:

1. What made you decide to start blogging? Was it a friend’s suggestion like me, or something else?

I first thought about blogging a while ago because I always read other blogs for race reviews, new running routes, and ways to stay healthy.  I really decided to start my own blog once I registered for the Disney Princess Half Marathon because I wanted to see all the progress that I will be making while training for the biggest race I’ve ever run!  Plus it has been keeping me accountable with my running and fitness goals, since everyone will know if I skipped a workout!

2. Which Friends character are you most like? I love this question (and am also obsessed with Friends!)

Don’t kill me but…I didn’t really watch Friends  😦  I’m sorry!  I’m more into reality TV shows.  I find that watching other people’s crazy drama-filled lives makes me feel better about whatever I’m going through.  Like, at least I’m not a teen mom, right?

3. Where is somewhere you’d love to travel, if money was no object?

I would go back to Alaksa in a heartbeat!  The entire state is about 1/3 the size of the entire US, so there’s a lot more for me to explore!  I would probably visit Barrow, which is the most northern point in the US.  I’ve always wanted to cross the Arctic Circle!

4. What is one of your biggest goals?

To run a race in all 50 states!  I always wanted to visit all 50 states as a little kid, so this just gives me an extra reason to do it!

5. What’s your favorite thing about blogging?

I love being able to share my little adventures with other people – it makes life more exciting!  My normal 3 mile training runs suddenly become something worth talking about.  And it gives me an excuse to take pictures during every workout/race!

6. Have you ever participated in any twitter chats, or attended any conferences about blogging?

No, but I’d love to do so in the future!  I’m still very new to blogging and I’m sure I have a lot to learn!

7. What is one thing you can’t leave the house without?

My cell phone!  I even carry it with me when I run, just in case I need it.  I’m usually glued to either my work emails (boo) or Facebook on my phone whenever I have downtime.

8. What is your favorite sport to watch or play?

Favorite sport to watch:  Hockey!  Specifically the Flyers  ❤

I also used to love playing field hockey in high school, although I spent the entire time on the bench and never actually got to “play”.

9. What is your favorite movie?

Elf!  Of course it has to be a Christmas movie!

10. What was the first blog you read? Do you still read it?

I’ve read so many that I can’t even remember – but the first blog I ever followed when I started blogging was Courtney from The Trigirl Chronicles.  It’s only been a month so I definitely still read it!


Here are my questions for all my lovely Liebster Award nominees:

1.  How long have you been blogging?  Has your blog changed a lot since then?

2.  What is your favorite book?

3.  If you could eat any one item of junk food and NOT have the calories/bad stuff count, what would you choose?

4.  What’s the coolest thing you have ever done in your life?

5.  What do you do to get new readers to follow your blog?

6.  Who is your personal hero?

7.  What is your favorite blog post that you’ve ever written?

8.  Where is your favorite spot to work out?

9.  How did you come up with the name for your blog?

10.  What is your favorite guilty pleasure TV show?


I had a ton of fun answering Lindsay’s questions!  Thanks for nominating me!  I hope everyone takes a moment to check out the blogs I nominated to see how they answered my questions!

  1. Loved reading your answers! I love reality shows as much as I love Friends, so I’ll let that one slide 😉 Did you watch Princesses of Long Island on Bravo? That’s my newest reality TV obsession!

    1. Also, you’ll have to join in on the next #BlogSmarter Twitter chat if you’re on Twitter – it was so much fun, and so informative last time!

      1. I don’t have a twitter yet! I feel so out of the loop! But I guess I might have to get one soon!

      2. Yes you do!! It’s such a great way to connect with other bloggers! I love Twitter more than Facebook now!

    2. I’d totally recommend you jump on the Twitter bandwagon, most of the people that follow me are via Twitter.

      And thanks so much for the nomination! That was so awesome of you!

      1. Danni your blog is awesome! It makes me want to come visit you and check out all the cool historic stuff in your neighborhood!

        And with Twitter – how do people follow your blog through that? I’m soooo confused by Twitter, that’s why I’ve avoided it for so long! You guys may need to give me Twitter lessons!
