Gorgeous Blogger Award and six things.

I was given the Gorgeous Blogger Award by Laura over at Box, run, eat. Thanks Laura! I enjoy reading about Laura's experience training to be a boxer as well as focusing on her eating and running.  She is one tough cookie!

 I am supposed to share 6 things about myself......this kind of stuff is always hard!

  1. I love to blow glass. Its been years since I have had a studio as autism and babies have taken the focus but someday I very much want to do that again.
  2. I have been skydiving 4 times yet am very uncomfortable with heights.  Now that I have children the practical has won out over daring. Daring is still there just waiting :)
  3. I was asked to fight this chick in Chicago about 12 years ago in an MMA match and I chickened out and turned down the promoter. It would have been a pro fight with travel and hotel covered.  My dear one is an MMA fighter and trainer.  
  4. I think S&M is kinda hot.
  5. I love that after having kids its not a big deal to speak frankly about bodily functions.
  6. I had a c-section with my first son at 22 years old due to him being a surprise breech while in labor. I went on to have a natural VBAC in a hospital, a natural birth in a birth center and a natural birth at home unassisted since my midwife was blessedly half hour late.  I nursed all 4 boys.
Thats all I could think of on the fly!  
So for running.... Its getting warmer here and the snow is melting!  Looks like it will stay warm for a while now and I might get some barefoot time in soon outside. I ran 6.25 miles on the treadmill last night and worked on speed bursts.  It went pretty well and I listened to music while Jaymon did his heavy bag work.   The music was nice although I did miss watching Lost!
I have a 10k coming up at the end of March and I don't think that my feet are going to be conditioned for the road surfaces.  I hope to get several runs in outside when we go back to Kansas over spring break. Its consistently warmer there.  
Happy running all!
