Eleven Things for a Friday? Sure! :)

February 10, 2012

Happy Friday! YAY!

For today, Candice was sweet enough to tag me on a “Eleven Things” post.  Which is something a little like a piece of chain mail.  I get to tell you about myself and answer some questions and tag a few more people to do the same.  While I’m not sure I can come up with eleven blogs to tag 🙂 (i’m like a blogger newborn),  I’m happy to join in the fun – and thought it’d be a good time if ANYONE who reads my blog does the same! Feel free to leave your answers to one, some or all of the questions and a random thing about you in the comments section, or put a link to your blog post about it! I’ll throw in some tags of some of my favorite fitness blogs too,  DEFINITELY check them out, they’re worth the click! Here goes:


1. Post these rules.

2. You must post 11 random things about yourself.

3. Answer the questions set for you in their post.

4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.

5. Go to their blog and tell them you’ve tagged them.

6. No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people.

Randoms about Katie

  1. 1.       I’m a vegetarian who lives with a non-veggie fiancé, and I love surprising him each night with veggie meals he actually enjoys.
  2. 2.      I am the proud “parent” of two rambunctious felines and would drop kick anyone who tried to hurt them. J
  3. 3.      Before October, I couldn’t run a mile in under 15 minutes, or without stopping.
  4. 4.      Since October, I have run 3 races (two 5ks and an 8k), have signed up for my first half marathon in March and am debating taking on a Sprint triathlon.
  5. 5.      I’m a sci-fi geek and love Star Wars to the point of obsession and am a self-proclaimed Trekkie. 
  6. 6.      Some things on my bucket list include seeing Agatha Christie’s “A Mousetrap” on stage in London and seeing Patrick Stewart do Shakespeare. 
  7. 7.      I collect Pride & Prejudice Novels, have about 8 of them, but only ever read one of them and I read it at least once a year.
  8. 8.      I am a “Daily outfit blogs” addict and have a secret desire to do a blog daily outfit posts, but lack the courage/creativity/photography skillz to do so.
  9. 9.      I am one of those random people who really really really really loves tofu.  Even before I was a vegetarian.
  10. 10.  I love all fruit, EXCEPT melons.  Honey-do, Watermelons and Cantaloupe.
  11. 11.  I LOVE kickboxing.

These are my questions from Candice:

1. What is your biggest and/or hardest goal for 2012?

Hard to say, I have so many goals. Fitness wise, I have to say my biggest goal will be to complete a half-marathon and a sprint triathlon.

2. Vegetarian or Meat-eater?


3. Would you rather write something down with pen/paper or on a computer/cell phone, etc?

I’m pretty certain I was born way after my time – I’d prefer the old school throw back of pen/paper. 

4. Dog or cat person?

Lover of all animals.  Have 2 cats currently, but would love a dog at some point and a baby hedgehog.  Definitely a baby hedge hog

5. What is your favorite season and why?

Hmmmm.  SUCH a good question. I think the easiest way to answer is to say my LEAST favorite season is Spring.  I love the long evenings in the summer and baseball games, Fall is BOOTS season (such a girl), and the Winter season from Thanksgiving-New years is amazing.  So probably February through March are my least favs. 

6. If you could live anywhere other than the place you currently live, where would you live?

A walkable city. Wherever one of those may be J

7. Do you prefer Facebook over Twitter or vis versa?

I think they’re both great, but for different reasons.  I don’t like when people use their FB account as a Twitter feed though. 

8. What is the longest run/race/workout you have ever done?

My longest race is a 8k, although, I’ll be running a half marathon at the end of March.  My longest workout to date, will be a 6 miler this weekend.

9. If you could only read one book over and over, which one would it be?

Super easy, Pride and Prejudice.  Close seconds are Jane Eyre and Murder on the Orient Express.

10. What is the biggest risk you have ever taken?

Taking that first step away from being a student after graduating with my PhD. 

11. What motivated you to start blogging?

I wanted to join a community that kept me honest about my goals and wants in life. 

And now that I’ve answered Candice’s questions, here are eleven of my own for YOU.

  1.  If you could characterize your life in one genre of a novel, what would it be?
  2. What is one food you can’t live without?
  3. If you could try any new exercise, what would it be?
  4. In regards to question #3, what’s keeping you from trying?
  5. What’s more important to you, saving money or living “in the moment”?
  6. What’s something you were convinced you wouldn’t like, but once you tried were surprised that you did.
  7. What’s your go-to stress snack, sweet or salty?
  8. Are you a coffee drinker?
  9. When’s your favorite time to workout?
  10. If you had the choice, do you prefer going out or staying in on a Saturday night?
  11. If money or skill sets weren’t an issue, what career would you choose?

So there you have it!  Don’t forget to post some of your responses in the comments section for everyone to read!  I hope ya’ll leave some fun answers!
