The Face Behind the Blog

Erin over at Gluten Free with a Purpose did a cool post on 7 things about her & asked if anyone wanted to participate & to their own.  I think this is cool, so here is my “7 Things”.

First, a picture of me.

Now, onto my stuff.  Things you may not know about me.

1.  I was a gymnast growing up.  I started gymnastics at 5 and continued in it until I was 14 or so.  I wanted to be just like Nadia & Mary Lou Retton.  Obviously, that didn’t happen. ;)

2.  I was born in Newport, Rhode Island.  My Dad was in the Navy, so that is where we lived the 1st 2 years of my life.

3.  My 2nd toe is longer than my big toe.  This was all fine & good until I started running and now seems to be causing some issues.  Stupid feet!

4.  I love to read.  We are on vacation right now & I brought no less than 10 books.  Aaron laughed at me.  I am already done with one & half way through the 2nd book and we have only been here 3.5 days.  Plus, I like choices.

5.  I never used to be a morning person, but am now.  I am up at 4:25 AM to hit the gym by 5 AM on weekdays.  What a difference from 10 – 15 years ago!

6.  I took violin lessons as a child.  When in middle school, I was 2nd chair in the orchestra/band.

7.  I never sang in front of people (well, except when forced in church choir as a child) until about 6 or 7 years ago.  Now I won’t stop!  LOL!  And, I really can’t sing! 

Well, there you have it.  7 things that you didn’t know about me before and may not care that you know now!  LOL! 

As Erin said, I am not going to tag anyone, but I would love it if you would participate & then let me know so I can check out your 7 things.

  1. Go BUCKS!!!
    I still can’t get over our similarities ….I think we were destined to be blogger friends :)
    I laughed at your #3, as I have the opposite situation….my big toe is MUCH taller than the rest of my piggies. Stupid feet is right.

  2. Hey – I did know all that stuff about you – except I forgot about church choir. What our parents do to us!

  3. Love your sweatshirt! Go bucks!! :)

    Cute list – I LOVE learning about other bloggers!

  4. I am from Rhode Island!!!!

    I saw your comment on my blog about training and your injured foot. Right before I started training for my first half last week I sprained my ankle! It sucked, but I just took two weeks off and did pretty much nothing. You have to take the time to get better. Good news is you have a ton of time to do it!

    • Yeah, as hard as it has been, I haven’t really run since I saw the dr a week ago. I did 4.5 miles on Sunday and nothing run wise since. Only elliptical. Stinks, but I know it is better in the long run.

      Love reading your blog! :)

  5. I, too, am scarred from the church choir experience, Kim!
