Yes, I may be a bit eccentric when it comes to surveys, but I love reading and completing them! This may be OliveToRun’s 6th WWRRS survey, but I’m just jumping on the train a bit late so this is only my 2nd time linking up. Now, sit back and relax <- or laugh at my awesomeness. Either way, take your pick!
Would you rather… run with one of your ancestors or your role models?
Role model – so we can chat away about life lessons and how to get what you want since they have accomplished some of my current goals, but I’d have to bring along my favorite running buddy!
Would you rather… run a race that is a few hour drive but in a beautiful location or in your city with a short drive?
This is a challenge because I live in a place with lots of rolling hills that provide a solid challenge, but the thrill of running along a beach has always appealed to me. Hence, why my first half [and third] are occurring in Amelia Island.
Would you rather… take an ice bath for a half hour or foam roll for a half hour?
Foam roll. No way will you see me in an ice bath for any longer than necessary; plus I’m more of a fan of chilled baths for 10 minutes and skipping the whole ice cube touching my body thing. [Source]
Would you rather… have a black toe nail pulled off or have your entire back chaffed from running and be forced to shower for a hour straight?
Given the number of times I have pulled a black toenail off [both accidentally and on purpose], I’d have to go that route again. Funny story…it’s happening again!
Would you rather… spend an extra $100 a month given to you on running/fitness or save it?
On one hand, I could argue to spend it, but my common sense side says I really should save it. Can I split it 50/50?
Would you rather… be known for running the fastest marathon or running the longest distance at one time?
I may never be the fastest runner on the course [I am not known for my speed], rather I strive to conquer new distances all the time.
Would you rather… have your medal handed to you by Kara Goucher or Shalane Flanagan?
Kara Goucher, hands down.
Would you rather… lick someone else’s armpit after a marathon, or lick their foot after a marathon?
If I’m like everyone else, I know my feet are nasty after a run <- honesty counts, right? So, I’d go for the armpit, hands down.
Hair > popped blisters <- am I right?
