an update: random runner survey.

i last completed this survey in january of 2010.  i thought it was time for an update...

also, stay tuned as i've got some races coming up within the next two months:
  1. May 8 - Japan Run - 4M
  2. May 14 - Healthy Kidney Run - 10K
  3. May 21 - Brooklyn Half-Marathon
  4. June 11 - NYRR Women's Mini - 10K
  5. June 25 - PRIDE - 5M
 1. Number of marathons you have run
two, both NYC ('09 and '10).  i've got guaranteed entry for this years' NYC Marathon so i'll be going for #3!  Also, i PLAN to run the las vegas marathon in december.  key word: plan. 

2. Where was your first marathon?
New York City baaaabyyy

3. Favorite Marathon course:
New York City?  Idk.. i'll answer this again after I run Vegas. Note to self: google Las Vegas marathon route.  I hope it's flat.  please be flat.

4. Most memorable race:
2010 NYC Half-Marathon.  i PRed by approximately 3 minutes! 

5. PRs?
5k- oddly enough, i've never run a 5k.  we spoke about this on easter.  yes, i realize it's one of the most common racing distances.  yes, i realize it's weird that i've never run one.  no, i'm probably not going to sign up for one anytime soon. 
4miler- 38:52 (2010)
5 miler - 52:36 (2010)
10k- 1:00:47 (2009)
15k- 1:36:39 (2011)
10 miler- Haven't timed any 10 mile runs.  Haven't run a 10 mile race either.
1/2 marathon- 2:11:27 (2010)
Marathon- 4:49:40 (2009)
50k- hell to the no
45 miler- hell to the double no
50 mile- wtf.
100k- not happening, ever
100 mile- never in a million years
24 hour- i prefer to sleep, thanks.

6. Ever run in a costume?
Does this count?
2010 Marathon Kickoff Race - 10/31/10

7. The only running shoes for me:
New Balance 700 Series.  I tried a different shoe last training season and i ended up with a black toenail (gross, sorry about that).  so yea, needless to say, i switched back.

8. Ever injured?
Hip flexor strain and now a fun pain in a tendon in my left foot.  awesome. 

9. Hot or cold weather runner?
hot.  i used to make fun of those women who would run in just a sports bra... no more, my friends, no more.  it's a good 5 degrees cooler once you take off the tank top. 

10. Morning or evening runs?
i guess i could say i prefer mornings because it's nice to get them out of the way (especially the really long ones).  however, i do enjoy sleeping in.

11. What is your motivation?
i don't know.. being able to eat the way i do and not gain any weight?  how good it feels to finish a marathon?  a mix of the two? 

12. Ever DNF?
nope but i've wanted to quit more than once.. see posts for 2010 long island half and the 2011 manhattan half marathon. 

13. Race I'd like to forget:
too many... but most recently, the 2011 manhattan half marathon.  my whole body was frozen.  i don't know how my legs were even moving towards the end.  awful, awful day for a run.

14. Favorite post race nosh:
diet soda.  for some reason, i can no longer eat after a run/race anymore.  it's like i come home, shower, and nap immediately, the thought of food making me feel slightly nauseous.  this is bad, i know.  for the longer runs/races, i'll have some pretzels or grapes after.  but diet soda, man, that's the way to go.  i actually begin to crave it on longer runs. 

15. Galloway or Higdon?

still don't know who/what these are.

16. Flat course or hills:
FLAT.  i'd only like a hilly course if its a course that is downhill the entire time.  las vegas, please be flat.

17. Back, Middle, or Front of the pack?
typically somewhere in the middle.

18. Run alone or with a partner:
definitely nicer to run with a friend or two!  i've been lucky this year that meghan and lisa have run pretty much every race with me.  and im even luckier because i've been able to get the boy to do a few runs with me too :-)

19. Ever win your age group?
hahahhahahahhahahahha.  i find this question extremely hilarious.

20. One part of your body that has never seen Body Glide:
every part of my body.  i've never used body glide.  apparently i don't chafe the way i'm supposed to?

21. Best part of running:
napping and eating afterwards. 

22. If I didn't run I_______________.
would be a size or two larger.

23. I can't run without______________________.
a sports bra. 

23. Ever lose a toenail?
nope!  i'd like to keep these bad boys.

24. Gatorade or Cytomax?
gatorade.  no idea what cytomax is... sounds like a prescription of some sort.

25. Favorite gel flavor?
don't do gels... more a fan of the gu chomps or beans.  i love jelly beans oh yes i dooo.

26. How many days after a marathon do you usually start running again?
about 5 days.

27. I run, therefore I ________________________.
am a person who runs.

28. Pre-race routines? (night before or morning of)
Night Before: pasta and chicken parm (long runs... no need to carb load for short runs), get my race stuff in order
Morning of: wake up as late as possible

29. What is your typical night before the big race meal?
pasta and chicken parm- again, only for the long runs.  i typically do this for anything over 10 miles.

30. Would you run a marathon again?
obviously.  Already in for the NYC Marathon in November and tentatively running the Las Vegas Marathon in December. 

31. If you could run with anyone, who would that person be?

Sethy!  Up for another one?  teehee.

i didn't read the january 2010 post so i have no idea if the answers have changed, but i'm assuming some of them have while some of them have stayed the same (think chicken parm and pasta... why in the world would i ever change that awesomeness?).

stay classy, nyc.
