  1. 1. For posting this “It’s easier to go down a hill than up it, but the view is much better at the top.” -Henry Ward Beecher, I am forever grateful.
    2. You are my soul mate.
    3. Can’t wait to hike Zion with you!

  2. I’ll pick and choose some answers here…

    Favorite running quote: “The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare.” – Juma Ikangaa
    (Ikangaa was runner-up at the Boston Marathon three straight years when I was a kid, and I sort of adopted him as my favorite marathoner. He is also wise.)

    Places I’m Dying to Visit: Yellowstone National Park, Lambeau Field (Green Bay Packers stadium), Great Barrier Reef, the Winter Olympics (technically an event and not a place, but I really want to go to them someday).

    Five Beauty Products I use Everyday: Deodorant. Shampoo. Body wash. Electric shaver. Hand soap.
    (This answer is silly and sarcastic but also accurate as I’m a non-metrosexual male).

  3. I want to fill this out. We are soul mates and pretty much eat the same things everyday, although sometimes it’s sweet potatoes instead of regular. I’m dying to go to Zion. DYING TO. Also dying to go to Denver, Germany, Hawaii, and Maine!


    • haha i love that you’re the 2nd to say we’re soulmates in this comment section 🙂 it makes my heart happy. At least we know if we’re ever together eating out would be easy. I’m heading to Denver in May!!! Hawaii is on my list! i’ve never been and would love to do some hiking out there

  4. Love those quotes! And I like alot of those shows too, even though I don’t watch much TV. I also just had to point out that your tempo pace is so impressive!

    • The tempo pace is definitely easier than before since I dont try and run that pace out on every run. TV is not something we do a lot of either.. right now we’ve been plowing through Blacklist on Netflix. kinda addicted to that one lol

  5. You will love Zion – and while you’re there you might as well go to Bryce, right?

  6. I’ll play along for two categories:

    5 books on my nightstand
    1) The Power of Now
    2) Runner – A short story about a long run
    3) Relentless Forward Progress
    4) Turning the Mind into an Ally
    5) (no longer on the nightstand but recently read) – Eat and Run

    5 songs I listen to on repeat – cheated by looking at my top 25 most played list
    1) Times Like These – Foo Fighters
    2) Everlong – Foo Fighters
    3) Major Minus – Coldplay
    4) Stars and Boulevards – Augustana
    5) Irresistible Force – Jane’s Addiction
