It’s come to my attention that I’m a very private person. Not intentionally but you don’t really know much about me other then a. I’m sarcastic and vulgar, b. I enjoy running or c. I like to make pancakes. I do exist in the real world occasionally too. Whatever.
Moving on-most of my personal posts come from Q&A’s and various questions people submit which (as always) I’m pretty open if you want to submit a question at my gmail (lolzthatswim).
Anyways following suit I’m doing another Q&A post with more answered questions. I’m a very private person in general, it’s not that I don’t enjoy sharing various information-I just don’t really think about it. I’m a very yes/no type of person and don’t add lots of adjectives and descriptive. (That’s obvious considering I don’t like to do more than 500 word posts).
Why do you run? What is your favorite part of running?
Running for me started as a workout between swim seasons (you can read about that here). I run because I truly enjoy it. It’s personal time for me (cliché) and I like to do things that I excel in. I’m going to workout if it’s running or not, so might as well do something I like. I’m also a high strung person so it get’s some of my excess energy out.
I’m NOT by any means saying I’m an Olympian runner but I do know it’s a talent I have. (I don’t do coordinated sports…can’t cook…clean…so running it is). I enjoy pushing my body to limits and seeing the end result. Is every run good? No. (duh and don’t bs me saying it is) but is it worth it PRing? YES.
My favorite part of running is the feeling right after you PR knowing your training has worked out.
Tell us more about your boyfriend. You’ve been dating a while and I think we have seen 2 posts about him…maybe.
I literally typed that out when I read that question so I thought I would keep it there. Yes, I have been dating Tim for quite some time now. We are in a long distance relationship (he lives in Texas) and I live in New York. So of course you aren’t going to see a lot of posts about him when I’ve seen him TWICE in the last 7 months. (Can I bitch to you about females that are cluttering my feed about their long distance relationship?). I’m not one to really whine too much about it because for me it is worth it and I know it won’t really be like forever. Tim is currently in flight school (so I don’t even get too talk him every day). So yes that is our relationship, I could do a sappy post about how we met through running but I’ll save you from that.
Did you enjoy college?
I enjoyed college and in hindsight I wish I had an easy semester…one semester that would have been nice. I spent every semester being busy and having a hard course load with at least 5 classes. I was a double major until the end of junior year (double major means you have to have 5 classes to graduate on time) and then flew the coup and changed my major senior year to community health (I had ch minor). So then I spent my senior year (as well as 2 summers) overloading classes to finish in 4.5 years. But in hindsight, I truly enjoyed my years of college.
As always you can ask me questions and I’m open to answering them. I got a lot more questions about running after I had written this post so I’ll include that next. I’m not running a lot of races so won’t have a lot of race review posts so this can tide you over.
