Five Things Friday

I'm going to copy Kara and do a five random things post.

1. I never wear my wedding/engagement rings when I am running or working out but I HAVE to wear them while I'm racing, I guess for good luck?
Can't really see my ring and I am not wearing my wedding ring yet because the wedding was about to happen, but you know I love posting pics from my wedding day.

2. I hate animals, never want pets, and don't like being near other people's pets, but I don't eat meat. I don't support PETA. I feel I am doing the animals a service by not eating them and therefore don't need to be nice to them.
3. I hate ketchup, but love salsa and marinara sauce. Some people feel its un-American to hate ketchup (and dogs, for that matter).  Mustard is my BFF.
I hated tomatoes until I was 24 and then I just ate a whole one off my friend's counter and now I LOVE them. 

4. I wake up early to work out but I am NOT a morning person. I don't even like to talk to people before 10am. When my friend moved into the classroom next door to me I told her never to talk to me before the bell rings and we'd have a happy existence. 

Me and my next door neighbor, Sue, happy together in the evening.

5. I live across the street from a Safeway, 2 miles from a Giant, but I drive 20 minutes to grocery shop at Wegmans every weekend. It's the best grocery shopping experience and well worth the drive. Anyone from Upstate NY knows what I am talking about.


  1. I don't wear either of my wedding rings when I run either, but when I race I wear a really thin gold band that I usually wear on my right ring finger on my left ring finger. You know, so those other runners that want to hit on a gross sweaty mess will know I'm taken ;).

    I'm not a morning person either, but I've started running in the morning and ever since we got a dog I haven't been able to sleep past 6 even when I don't have the alarm set. I guess I'm becoming a morning person.

  2. LOL - I hate when people talk to me in the morning. In fact, I like complete silence. My husband listens to the radio while he's getting ready, then turns the news on TV while he's eating breakfast.
    That took YEARS to get used to. It was SO annoying but now I tune it out.

  3. OMG, I LOVE Wegmans. I would drive 20 minutes all the time to go there.

    Is it wrong that I think you might hate all dogs, but you'd like mine? She's so lovable :)

  4. I used to not be a morning person. If someone talked to me before lunch I would snap. On weekends or days off of school I could sleep ALL day long, but now I wake up by 8 without an alarm. Ugh. The past couple of mornings I have been awake before my alarm goes off at 5:45. Does that mean I'm getting old??
    I'm jealous of Boston! That would be so awesome to go watch!!
    Spring Break isn't until April 15th?!?! YIKES. When do yall get out of school for the summer?

  5. um, wegmans is the best. i have 3 within 5 miles of my house. it seriously is the best. i am totally a morning person- however, i find it extremely hard to get out of bed but once I do- im talk central :-p!

  6. I don't wear my ring either, but I do when I run a race. I think it is the good luck thing (and having them with you, lol)!

  7. Omgosh I just about choked on my water when I read your second point. Too funny!

  8. I don't wear my ring when I am running around the house or I leave the house and go run somewhere. I only where if I can't go home first! I used to love my sleep, but now I am totally a morning person! I rather be up at 4 and go to sleep at 8! I think I am really supposed to be 70 years old! :o)


Thanks for commenting! Comments make me probably more happy than they should.
