Liebster Award

Today I’m answering the Liebster Award questions from Danielle from Live Run Grow. The Liebster Award is a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers and maybe learn about some new blogs you haven’t read before! – Enjoy!



You must link back to the person who nominated you
You must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you
You must pick 10 bloggers to be nominated for the award
You must create 10 questions for your nominees
You must go to their blogs and notify the nominees

1.  If you could run any race in the world what would it be?

Boston 2014, over and over and over and over again!  It was by far and away the greatest race I have ever run.  But I guess if this is reality its a toss between Big Sur, Chicago, NYC and Disney Dopey Challenge.  I’m not good at choices, good thing I don’t have to choose!

2.  What is the best race you’ve run so far?

If you read the answer to #1 I bet you can answer this yourself!



3.  What is your favorite book?

I hate making choices like this.  I guess Gone Girl has been my favorite in the recent past but I could really make a list of about 50.  Actually I have, its already on my page.  (Also, can’t wait to actually read again when boards are over)!
4.  Favorite TV show?

Friends has always been a favorite, such a classic.  But in the past few years, Modern Family has filled the sitcom void.

5.  Is there a skill or talent you wish you had?

I wish I could paint.  My best friend is an insanely amazing artist and I’m lucky if I could finger paint better than a 3 year old.
6.  Favorite Disney character?

Squirt. Righteous dude!

7.  What’s the best job you ever had?

Beach life guarding in Rehoboth Beach.  Best summers of my life, hands down!
8.  Is there a food you just can’t stand??

Black licorice and melon (other than watermelon).  Every year I try both of these, and every year I don’t like them…womp womp.
9.  What’s your favorite, can’t live without piece of running gear?

My GPS watch.  I am addicted to it.  I love that I have tracked every run I have done in the past 3 and a half years.  I mean when you can see that you have run across the country and back a few times, thats pretty cool.
10.  What’s the one tip you would give to a new runner.

Don’t worry about how fast you go and know that anything is possible.  In my first marathon I weighed 155 pounds at 5’2″, I ran a 4:11:14 and barely made it through.  Monday I ran a 3:24:24 in the Boston marathon and had another runner she wouldn’t be surprised if I was chasing a sub 3:00 one day.  Now that is still a dream but I know its a dream I can chase.  Keep your head high and be consistent and you have no idea where your two feet can take you!

1.  Blissful Britt

Word Press Family Award

A few days ago that lovely little orange bubble lit up on my computer showing a comment (which always makes my day).  This one was super special through because Ani of MilesforThought had nominated me for a Word Press Family Award!!  Her blog has some really fantastic, really healthy recipes and she is just the cutest person.  I love reading her stories and I am super excited following her through training for her FIRST MARATHON!!

“This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I started this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honor to start this award.”



  1. Display the award logo on your blog.
  2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  3. Nominate 10 others you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience and family.
  4. Let your 10 Family members know you have awarded them.

My Family Members:

Liebster Award


After an amazing day of relief yesterday I came home to find that I was nominated for the Liebster award.  Cherry on top of my day!!  I want to thank Ani Danelz for the nomination!!   I will also nominate other bloggers at the end of this post, the rules are:

  • Thank the person that nominated you
  • Answer the 11 questions from the nominator
  • Nominate 11 new bloggers
  • Ask 11 Questions to the nominated recipients

Ani Danelz Questions:

1.  What is your favorite post on your blog?

This one is tough, but I think my favorite is Addicted to Running.  Runners are just different, it isn’t a bad thing and if you think it is, you must not be a runner.  Everyone has their thing, mine is to run!

2.  What are your favorite kind of blogs to read?

I really like to read food blogs.  I have some ideas of my own but sometimes my brain is so lazy by the time dinner rolls around.  One I have been really using a lot is  Her recipes are amazing!!

3.  Why do you blog?

This questions has really evolved.  I started my blog because I am in PT school and am a runner and I feel like I have a lot of knowledge to share with people about what I know and how to prevent and take care of injuries.  Being derailed by pain is the worst, prevention is the best in my book!!  (Strength train people)  But now, I blog about a lot of things, I like to connect with other people that are like me I guess.

4.  What are you most excited about this spring/summer?

I am excited to go home this summer for a wedding and take Casey to where I am from (he hasn’t been there yet)!  It will be a quick weekend trip because of school but I can’t wait!

5.  What is your favorite song?

This is an impossible question.  I guess one that I always love all the time is Hero by The Foo Fighters.

6.  Is there any food you absolutely will not eat?  If so, what is it?

Melons (except watermelon).  I swear to you I have tried to like it so many times, but I’m sorry, its just gross!

7.  Do you have any bad habits?

I pick at my feet.  I know that is gross but my feet are gross from constantly running and the big toe nails are always a mess.

8.  What is your favorite part about yourself?

I love that I can dedicate myself whole heartedly to school, which will eventually lead to whole hearted dedication to my future patients.

9.  What is your favorite restaurant/type of restaurant?

I love Thai food.  I can never make it as good as them so I just let them do the Pad Thai.  YUMM!

10.  What is your favorite flavor of frozen yogurt/ice cream?

I love coffee everything.  Really I just love coffee and if it can invade other things, I’m happy about it!

11.  Where have you lived?

I was born in Hawaii (my dad is a marine).  When I was two we returned to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and I stayed there until I was 21.  Then I made my big independent move to Charleston, South Carolina to go to physical therapy school.  (Beach theme, if you can’t tell)!
