A little bit of sunshine in my life!

First, I’d like to thank the Academy, oh wait, that’s the wrong award….Kathy over at Runin’ My Life nominated me for a Sunshine Award!

Sunshine Award

Thank you Kathy, that means a lot to me because I really like your blog and I have a feeling we’re a little bit alike with our military style, mad crazy, organizational skills. 😉

So it works like this, Kathy nominates 10 people and we have to answer 10 questions so here goes:

  1. Cat person or dog person? I’d say a Dog person since I have 2 (Shout out to Hank and Boomer) but I love all animals. Hell let’s be honest, I even like bugs.
  2. Favorite guilty pleasure song? Bubble Butt by Major Lazer, (Don’t hate!)
  3. What was the best day of your life? I’d say I’ve had many but by far the best was the day my son was born.
  4. Favorite childhood memory? All my memories of Cherokee Lake, loved that place.
  5. What is your favorite race distance? I love the half marathon. It’s just enough to be challenging but not so far that I have to train like a bull, btw, I’m currently training for a full.
  6. Are you a road warrior, trail adventurer or treadmill enthusiast? Definitely a road warrior but I cozy up to my treadmill on occasion too.
  7. What is your favorite cause or charity? The Make-A-Wish Foundation
  8. What one word would your best friend use to describe you? Energized
  9. What is your favorite thing about running? The shoes, definitely, the shoes…kidding. I love the way running makes me feel, it’s honestly the best feeling ever.
  10. What do you hate about running? I don’t really care much for the sweat but I guess that comes with the territory, right?

And now, I get to nominate 10 people. So here goes, and if you are one of the nominees and would like to participate then you need to:
1. Post the award logo in a post.
2. Link back to the person that nominated you.
3. Answer my ten questions on your blog post.
