I have read this fun survey on a couple of the blogs I follow recently, and decided to answer these questions, too. Here goes.
Would you rather run in a thunderstorm or a snowstorm?
Definitely the thunderstorm. Where I live these is little of both but I have run in a snowstorm in the past and found it quite visually disorienting.
Would you rather breathe through your nose or breathe through your mouth?
I would RATHER breathe through my nose but I know I am a mouth breather when I run.
Would you rather do 100 squats or 100 crunches?
Squats, definitely. 100 crunches is tough on my lower back.
Would you rather have a baked good for dessert or an extra serving of your favorite entree?
More dinner, please. Not a huge dessert fan… well, not anymore anyway! Wait... what IS the dessert?
Would you rather run on a treadmill for an hour or run around the same street block for an hour?
So not a treadmill fan… at least not since I lived where the winter temps often plummeted to –40C. These days I would choose running around the same block and I would probably turn around and run it in the opposite direction occasionally, too.
Would you rather have a headache during a run or a side stitch?
That’s a tough one. I rarely get either but I find headaches quite annoying.
Would you rather have a rest day on a work day or a day off?
Definitely on a work day.
Would you rather be a race director or a race volunteer?
I have been a volunteer a couple of times and quite enjoyed it… a race director? I think that would be too much for me… I might consider being a committe coordinator.
Would you rather spend your money on running gadgets [HRM, GPS watch, Headphones] or running shoes?
Shoes, of course!
Would you rather run in a relay or do the run portion of a distance triathlon?
I have never done either, but I think a relay might be fun.
Okay, it’s your turn!
