Tagged! Bunny Birthday! Running?

I was recently tagged by Alisa and The Qi Papers to share 6 or 7 random facts about myself. The last time I was tagged to do this, I shared these facts.

Here are 7 more random facts about myself:

1. I have broken two bones in my life: Left elbow twice (monkey bar fall, roller-skating collision). I also think I broke my tailbone (not officially diagnosed, but I fell off a horse and landed square on my butt and it hurt like the dickens for a long, long time. My riding instructor had broken hers before and it sounded like the same thing).

2. My beverage of choice is water. I will rarely drink anything else.

3. I had a premonition of the death of my childhood rabbit. I was out to dinner with my parents and my dad nonchalantly mentioned he was cutting down a tree in our backyard. Immediately after he said that, I knew she was going to die. I didn't know when but I had a bad feeling. She ended up passing away the day the tree was cut down.

4. I am a salty snacker more than a sweet snacker. Cheetos over M&M's any day of the week. Also, if I have something like ice cream I have to follow it up with a salty snack.

5. I hate milk. My parents forced me to drink a glass at dinnertime every night until I graduated from high school. Since then (over ten years ago), I have drunk milk once, maybe twice. However, I love all dairy products including cheese, ice cream, and milkshakes.

6. At one point in my life, I had ten piercings on my body. Nowadays I max out at wearing five and most days I sport three.

7. When I was a kid I was deathly afraid of people dressed up in those character costumes. I hid under the table at Chuck E. Cheese when he came around and refused to take photographs with Snoopy at Knott's Berry Farm. My mom thinks it is hilarious that I now love to take photos with the characters during Disney races.

I will tag the first person who left comments on my last post. So Hef's Mom, you're it!


Happy Birthday, Mario!
This deserves a post all to itself, but last Saturday (March 6) was Mario's birthday!! It is really the anniversary of his Gotcha Day! As I've mentioned before, he was full grown when I adopted him, so I always add one year extra get his approximate age. So it's been 6 years together and Mario is now seven!




I didn't do much running this week. Post-marathon laziness and recovery (or at least, I tell myself it is recovery to justify the laziness):

Wednesday: 3 miles @ 10:52 pace

Friday: 10 miles @ 10:29 pace; My legs were really heavy and tired on this run. Major battle to keep moving almost the whole run. And just like that I'm in another taper week! I LOVE taper weeks :)

Woohoo!! Welcome to the 7-up club, Mario! Its a very prestigious place to be! (It means you can make sad eyes for extra treats and alfalfa hay!)

Hoppy Birthday Mario - you don't look a day over 6! FYI - I'll be walking again at the Big Sur marathon - I'm doing the 9 mile (as a walk). I'm not a big runner - but I do love to walk and this is part of my training for the Komen 3-day walk in October. Maybe I'll see you there!

Guess that means I'm it! Funny enough today is Shadow's gotcha day, 1 year!

Mario looks so cute in his little hat, even though he's obviously not wearing it by choice.

Happy Gotcha Day, Mario!

Happy gotcha day to the furry bunny. Hope your legs are prepared for LA :)

Happy Birthday, Mario!!

Funny that I think I broke my tailbone too as a kid. It's much sharper than it should be and whenever I fall and land on it, it bothers me a lot more than it should (or I don't have much butt cushioning?).

I hate milk too!
