The Liebster Award

I am so very honored to receive The Liebster Award from one of my Girls Gone Sporty #teamstellar friends & fellow blogger, Running with SD Mom.  Thank you so very much!


The Liebster Award is an online award by bloggers for bloggers to help bring attention to new and upcoming bloggers, typically those with 200 followers or less - but any favorite blog you love will do!

Here’s how it works:
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.

Questions from SD MOM:

1.  What is your favorite distance to run?  As most of you know - running is not my forte, but I’m loving 5K’s since my 1st ever Run or Dye 5K just a month ago.  

2.  What is your absolute favorite running song right now?  I love to run or workout to classic rock and modern pop & rock.

3.  Besides running, what is your favorite sport / fitness activity? DDP YOGA, duh!

4.  What is your favorite piece of clothing (running)?  My ViewSport SweatActivated Shirts - they are just plain AWESOME!

5.  What kind of shoes do you race in? Adidas

6.  What is your favorite race to date?  Run or Dye 5K - since it’s my one and only to date! :)

7.  What is your dream race?  Doing a color run mixed with an electric run and then topped off with a mudder run.

8.  Who is your fitness inspiration?  My mom.  She taught aerobics throughout my entire childhood and I always looked up to her because you could tell she loved what she was doing.

9.  Do you run solo or with BRFs? I run with my mom. 

10.  Why did you start a blog?  To help pay it forward and share my journey with others.  Coming from depression, suffering a loss, and having a lot of weight gain and anxiety is a hard place to be and I share my stories with others to give them hope that they can overcome their pains too!

    I love that you run with your mom! I just did a half marathon with my mom (walking-I was hurt and she doesn’t run) in March and it was great-I pushed her (lovingly) to a PR! I also like the fact that your approach to running, and your type of dream race, is totally different from mine. I love a different perspective. And that picture of your son is fantastic. Thank you so much for nominating me-i will get the answers up soon!
