Running Quiz

I’ve seen this running quiz on a few blogs, such as Just A One Girl Revolution and From Ice Cream to Marathon and wanted to try it! I’ll be interested to see how the answers change in the next six months or so!

FUEL: SHOT BLOKS, GU, ENERGY CHEWS, CANDY OR OTHER?

I really like these Cherry Blossom energy chew from Honey Stingers

RACE LENGTH: 5K, 10K, 1/2 MARATHON, MARATHON, ULTRA OR OTHER?

Out of the 2 race lengths I’ve done, I enjoyed the 10k the best! Can’t wait until my half to see how I like it.

WORKOUT BOTTOMS: SKIRTS, RUNNING SHORTS, CAPRIS, PANTS OR OTHER?

Shorts– but I definitely prefer the longer ones!

SPORTS DRINK: GATORADE, POWERADE, CYTOMAX, YOU STICK TO WATER WHEN YOU RUN OR OTHER?

Water! Gatorade is fine for after a race, but I had some during a race once and thought I was going to be sick.

RUNNING TEMPERATURES: HEAT OR COLD?

Can I say middling to fair? I hate the heat and cold! But I’d pick cold weather over hot. I like the gear better 🙂

RUNNING SHOE BRANDS: SAUCONY, MIZUNO, NIKE, BROOKES, ASICS OR OTHER?

I bought a pair of Asics when I first started to work out. I liked them, but a couple months in and my knee was giving me trouble. I went into my local Fleet Feet and talked to some pros. I left with some shiny new Brooks GTS Adrenaline 12s and I love them!

 

PRE-RACE MEAL: OATMEAL, BAGEL, BANANA, EGGS, CEREAL OR OTHER?

Eggs! Fried a bit in EVOO with salt and pepper. Yum.

REST DAYS: 1X PER WEEK, 2X PER WEEK, NEVER EVER EVER OR OTHER?

When I’m running regularly it’s about 2x a week, but I usually cross train at least 2 day as well.

MUSIC: HAVE TO HAVE IT OR GO WITHOUT IT?

When I’m running solo I have to have it, but with friends I could do without it.

#1 REASON FOR RUNNING: STRESS-RELIEF, ENDORPHINS, YOU LOVE TO RACE, SO YOU CAN EAT ALL THE CUPCAKES YOU WANT, WEIGHT-LOSS, LOVE RUNNING FOR SOCIAL REASONS OR OTHER?

I love the racing! And it’s been pretty good for weight loss too.

 

Answer a question in the comment below– I’d love to see your answers 🙂
