7 Things about ME!

Mel-Tall Mom on the Run tagged me!! The rules are to post 7 things about myself and pass it onto some other bloggers... FUN!

7 Things about Jill at Running 2 Sanity:

  1. After my 22.32 miler on Thursday I called Tall-Mom to tell her about my run.  I always love to call my friends and talk about how it went.  She reminded me that in Jr. High I couldn't even run a mile!  It's strange how you forget how much you can change when you go after something.  I couldn't even run around the track and now I am running over 20 miles!  I ran track in Jr. High for social reasons...I was not good at ALL and that is not an exaggeration.
  2. I am LAZY!  I would have no problem lying in BED all day long.  Just because I run doesn't mean I am not LAZY because I am.  Maybe I run so I have a good excuse to be lazy.  I love after the kids go to bed I can sit and do nothing!  I love getting in my PJ's and just lounging in the evenings.  Just wish I didn't want to snack so much during those lazy times.
  3. I don't have many dreams, really my only dream I really ever thought of was to RUN a MARATHON!  I realized this on my long run...I really don't have much I have really wanted to Ironman is the only thing on this list, but that might not ever happen.  It's crazy that my ONE major DREAm (besides the obvious of marriage and kids) is about to happen...I shed a few tears on my long run the other day realizing that!
  4. I grew up with My dad and my brother.  My parents go divorced when I was young.  I loved the early years with my dad and brother.  Long road trips with music blaring!  Great memories.  (My dad got remarried when I was 8)
  5. My dream is to go to Italy.  I have never been to Europe and I am dying to get over to that side of the World.  I have an Alaska Airlines card to rack up miles for my hubby and I to go for FREE someday.
  6. My mom is one of the very few if not the only one that can make me P.I.P (if you don't know what PIP is then you wouldn't understand) from laughing so hard.  I LOVE to LAUGH so hard that I can't control it...nothing is better.
  7. I used to dis-like chocolate until I got pregnant with I like it a lot.  I am a total sweets person.  Though running has changed that a little bit.
  8. BONUS:  I met my husband while working at an espresso cart.  He used to help me push in the cart at the end of the day!  We dated for a few months then broke up.  Always thought of him and then 2 years later he called me out of the blue and we started dating and then got engaged and now we have been married for 8.5 years.  Crazy how life works out!
