Blog on fire!

4 mi in the AM, 9:01 average pace

4 mi in the PM, 9:01 average pace

Ok, that is the weirdest thing ever! I just noticed that I ran the exact same pace this morning and after work. This morning was 36:03:65 and this evening was 36:03:88. I was all set to write a bit about how much more difficult it is for me to run later in the day! That theory sure doesn’t hold through time wise, but I did feel exhausted this evening.


Amanda over at Peanut Butter and Adrenaline nominated me as a blog on fire. What a sweetie! This is a type of chain where you tell 8 things about yourself and then nominate other bloggers.

I just started Miles for a Smile last month, but I have been reading healthy living blogs for a while now. I started with The Fitnessista and have found a lot of other blogs that I enjoy reading. Here we go!

1. I hated running in high school. Running was a dread while I played softball and the coach would yell that we could stop once Laura reached the front of the pack! It was playful but a gives you an idea of how much I disliked running.

2. I was a college athlete, well… if you count dance team 😉 I danced at Western Michigan University for all of the football and basketball games. We competed at a National competition in Daytona Beach Florida too. It was such a wonderful and fun experience. We even had a scary trainer!

3. I traveled in Europe during my last semester of college. I lived in Heidelberg, Germany for four months and traveled to new cities every weekend!

4. I married my high school sweetheart! We started dating a month before my 15th birthday and were married at 24. I can’t wait to see him!

5. I am traveling to see the hubs next weekend! Woohoo!

6. I came in 2nd out of 2 in my first 10k race. It was called the Pickerel Fest at a nearby small town. Rocked it, hehe!

7. I am house hunting! I can’t wait to own a home and make it amazing.

8. I am currently going to graduate school to further my teaching certifications! I am a nerd and love school.

Thanks for making it through the list! Here are some other great bloggers on fire…
