A Running Survey 

I really want to be more consistent when it comes to this whole blogging thing, but lately I’ve been feeling super uninspired. I’ve started about 8 million posts but I’ve scrapped every single one because it felt too forced, or wasn’t interesting enough, or I just wasn’t feeling it.

So I took to the internet in search of blogging prompts. That how I stumbled upon this running survey on meggorun.blogspot.com. 😄

It seemed like a fun idea, so here it is!

What is your favorite type of cross training?

I like Pilates, yoga, stationary bike, and hiking!

What is your favorite song to run to?

Hmmm, this is kind of a hard one as it changes all the time. Right now I’m really into Don’t Threaten Me With a Good Time by Panic! At the Disco.

What brand of shoes do you wear? 

Nike.

Do you wear a hat when you run?

Hells yes! All the time!!

What temperature is your favorite for running?

Pretty much anything below 40 degrees. I LOVE the cold. ⛄️😊

Do you run solo or with a buddy?

Depends on what I’m doing/the weather. Gotta keep my running buddy safe and healthy.

Are you a morning, noon, or evening runner?

Definitely morning.

Do you have any big races coming up? 

I’m not officially signed up for any races yet, but I’m wanting to ru the Longview Half again this year.

What is your favorite post run snack? 

Anything quick, easy, and tasty.

What is your favorite distance? 

Hmmm right now I’m thinking 5k. Mostly because it’s been too hot for me to get excited about anything longer.

What is your favorite race? 

Well I’ve only done 3, so I feel like I can’t really answer this.

Do you wear a Garmin? If not, how do you track your distance?
What is your least favorite race? 

Indeed I do! I’m currently sporting a Forerunner 235 and loving it.

Who is your running idol? 

I don’t think I could call them “idols”, but I really admire Kara Goucher, Shalane Flanagan, and Scott Jerek.

How long have you been running? 

I started really running in late 2013.

Do you wear your engagement/wedding ring when you run?

Luke and I don’t wear our wedding rings at all lol. We want to get wedding band tattoos.

What is your favorite type of run? Tempo? Long? Repeat? Fartleks?

Long runs! Although I do quite enjoy a good fartlek.

What do you drink to stay hydrated? 

Usually just water, but lately I’ve been drinking Gatorade after harder runs. That seems to make me feel a lot better in general when it’s really hot outside.

Where is your favorite place to run? 

Anywhere with pretty views.

What do you take on a run? Does it vary by distance?

It definitely varies by distance. On shorter runs I just bring my phone and pepper spray. On longer runs I usually bring my hydration pack, fuel, vasaline, and Chapstick.

What’s your answer to 1 or 2 (or all 😉) of the questions on this survey? I’d love to hear them!!! 😄
