Runner Survey!

Runner's Survey

Post this on your blog so I can stalk you!

What is your favorite type of cross training? 
Ahh.  I don't like the first question of this survey!  I am a sucky sucky cross-trainer...
What is your favorite song to run to? 
Hmmm... I would say Dave Matthews Band "Two Step" off of one of the live albums because the song is like 20 minutes long... and anytime I can run more than two miles to one song... it's a winner!  Also, Eminem "Til I Collapse"...  nothing like a weird white girl jamming rapping while huffing and puffing.  I know, I am pretty cool.

What brand of shoes do you wear? 
Brooks GTS 11.  Purple Gorgeousness.  Oh!  And I forgot to tell you guys - I do not have to give them up!
My trusty visor.

Do you wear a hat when you run? 
I do!  I love my white Brooks hat, and also this light blue visor I scored at the Chicago R 'n R expo last year.

What temperature is your favorite for running? 
55 degrees please.  But, since I live in Wisconsin, it seems like it's always 30 and windy or 80 and about to thunderhail..

Do you have any big races coming up? 

August 14 - Chicago Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon
September 18 - Fox Cities Marathon

Are you a morning, noon or evening runner? 
I am trying to be a morning runner because it works best with my schedule, but ideally I would be a nooner..

Do you run solo or with a buddy? 
Usually all by my lonesome, but sometimes with my sweet kiddos in the BOB... I am lucky enough to get to do my long runs with a buddy every so often..
What's your favorite post run snack? 

Vanilla almond milk with whey protein.  Mmmmmmm.What's your FAVORITE race?  Chicago Rock n Roll Half Marathon!!!  I ran the inaugural one, and I hope to be one of the crazy shriveled up ladies in fifty years who has run all of them. 
What is your favorite distance? 
13.1 all the way!  Love, love, love running half marathons.

What is your least favorite race?
Oh, it's gotta be the Sunset Run 5k in Kimberly, WI.  It's a hot, double loop with a big hill.. It's just brutal.  Shirts were also really boring... but I tie-dyed mine and now it's purdy! 

Who is your running idol? 
All the mamas I know who run through pregnancies and nursing months... that is the definition of bad ass.

How long have you been a runner? 
About 4-5 years. 

Do you run with your engagement/wedding ring on? 
I do!  I never take it off.

What's your favorite workout? repeats? long runs? tempo? fartleks?  
Long runs.  Tempos.  Track Ladders.  Fartleks.  HILLS!!!!  Really, anything sounds amazing right now because I've run 10 minutes in the last six weeks. (dumb ankle)

What race is your favorite medal from?   Hmmmm... I really love the Oshkosh Half medal this year... because it was such a funny race.  Read all about it here.

Do you wear a Garmin? If not, how do you track your runs? I use it on my long runs for distance... but I don't wear it during races or shorter runs usually.  Not in love with the 405... trying to bait my friend into buyng mine so I can downgrade to the 305. 


  1. You are so cute in your visor! I will have to do this soon, good survey Kimmy.

    Plus, you already stalk me.

  2. that medal is awesome!! and I agree about the weather...mid 50s is SO perfect :)

    I am also agreeing about the 405!!! dang it. I really loved it until I started training for the marathon and it will NOT last long enough. DUMB. I want the 305 as well!

    This is such a cool idea...I will have to remember to do this for one of my posts!

  3. Love this survey! I wear the same running shoes as you--they're amazing!

  4. I did this survey too. I agree with you, 55 degrees is perfect running weather!

    Found your blog through Alicia Runs, I enjoy following other mommy runners named Kim:)


  5. Just started following you... I ran Oshkosh Half too (what a fun day, huh?!) and I'm also doing the Chicago R'nR in August! I live in Illinois now, but still a Cheesehead all the way!


Hearing from you makes me happy! :)
