2. Rest?!?!?! I'm sure to everyone else I'm just my usual mad crazy running woman who climbs Mt. Everest every single day while blind folded on no sleep. Ok, sure I ran 20 miles on Sunday. And I got up on Tuesday at 3:45 a.m. to run 8.5 miles before my 6 a.m. yogalates class. Let's also please note that so far I've logged 190 miles for the month & I still have a week left (with another (almost) 20 miler planned for tomorrow). So how exactly am I resting? Oh, trust me, I am. Yesterday I slept in until 6:30 a.m. and even though I planned a 3 hour workout (10 mile run & weight lifting) I "only" ran 7 miles. Today I slept in until the last possible minute until I had to get up & teach my class. Then after I got the kids all to school I crawled back into bed to watch 2 of my favorite shows that were DVR'd last night. Let's also notice the half eaten bag of chocolate chips that are sitting next to me.

3. Fun facts. My friend (how does that work when you've never met someone in person yet you feel so deeply connected to them) & fellow blogger Kim did something the other day in one of her posts that listed some fun facts about her. So I thought, sure I'll throw some fun facts at you to give you some insight on me, especially things that don't come up in everyday conversation. Here are 3:
*My favorite color is red.
*I play the french horn. While most kids started in 5th grade, I didn't start until I was in 9th grade. I didn't believe I could be an awesome player so I didn't try too terribly hard. I have been trying to pick up the habit of playing again. I'm sure I sound horrible, but it's the thought that counts.
*I was accepted at Faith Baptist Bible College, but never attended. I was recruited to attend & run at Loras College, but never considered going there. I've never attended college anywhere, with the exception that I once took french horn & vocal lessons through the community college so I was considered a student.
I should note that once I had said I would routinely blog about fun/interesting facts about me (I remember the post was titled 100 things about me. Sorry, too lazy to look it up & link it for you). I always have this intention, but don't follow through to well. We'll see if I can't work more on this.
What are some fun facts about you?
