Liebster Award!

Exciting news! Yesterday, I found out from Deborah at confessionsofamotherrunner.com that she was nominating me for a Liebster award! I was pretty surprised because I’ve only had this blog since January, but I’ve been working hard to get more readers! I wasn’t sure what a Liebster Award was, so I had to check it out. Basically it’s an award fellow bloggers can give each other to help spread the word about each other’s blogs! I was pretty excited she picked me!

Here’s the criteria for the award:

1. You must link back to the person who nominated you
2. You must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you.
3. You must pick 10 bloggers to be nominated for the award
4. You must create 10 questions for your nominees
5. You must go to their blogs and notify the nominees
Here are the questions Deborah created for me:
1. What do you like about blogging?
I like to have a place to collaborate my thoughts on training and racing. I like how it keeps me accountable as well! If I know someone is reading about my training, then I’m more likely to do the training :) I also like the community of bloggers and getting the opportunity to read about other runner’s experiences.
2. What are you surprised about?
I was surprised to find all the link-ups and blog community sites via facebook! All this time, I thought bloggers just wrote their blogs and hoped people stumbled upon them. It was a pleasant surprise when I found a way to find other people’s blogs and be able to share mine!
3. What is one really interesting thing about you?
Well, obviously I’m a runner, and also a triathlete. But another interesting thing is I’m also a full time athletic trainer-so I get to help other athletes stay healthy/get healthy!
4. What is your favorite type of exercise?
Running is my first love, and will always be my favorite :)
5. Does your family embrace your fit lifestyle?
Totally yes! My husband is my biggest support-he goes to all my races with me, plans out my training schedule, does the dishes, groceries, cooking, pretty much everything just so that I can get my workouts in. Along with that, my parents are also super supportive! They love coming to our races and they keep up to date on how all of us siblings are doing with our training!
6. What’s your dream vacation?
Italy! For our honeymoon, John brought me to two of my top “must go to” places, but Italy is next on the list! :) I’d love to go someday.
7. What race is on your bucket list?
Ironman 70.3 World Championships! Hopefully this year :)
8. What’s your favorite “cheat” meal
Kentucky Fried Chicken! :)
9. Do you belong to a run or fitness club?
Not really. I am friends with a local group from a couple towns over, but I’m not connected with a running club in my city.
10. How will your life be different in 5 years?
Woah, scary question! I don’t know how I can answer that-5 years ago, I certainly wouldn’t have guess I’d be here today. I would guess though that we’ll have a family in the next 5 years. I hope to still be competitive in running and triathlons and involve my family in my fitness activities!
Alright, now for the nominations!
1. My sister! Leah @ runningwithhaynes.com
