Ask away! Q and A with Jenn!

So, anyone heard of this Q and A thing going around. I'm sure not. It's VERY rare.... Well, I guess I'm in. Time to play:)


I've been tagged by XLMIC for one of three reasons. I'm either an already known oversharer, she thinks I will actually play along and not blush and walk away, or the more boring alternative, she just wants to know more about me....

SO, just this one time I am allowing, actually inviting, and promising to answer ANY question that comes my way whether I have to down two bottles of Cab before I work on the post or not. Questions welcomed but not limited to running. Wanna know why I actually buy tampons for my husband and how he uses them, or how many perogies I once ate in one sitting, or what sports I played in high school? Unlike XLMIC, your questions will not likely elicit a video or pornographic photographic response! I will save that for my other blog....Fire Away!!

I am working full time next week so I will leave the questions open but likely not start answering until the weekend.

So, I also need to tag 5 more people. This is all in fun. If you don't want to do it, DON'T! If you want to do it but make your own specifics, I don't care!! Pretty random with my selection here! Have fun:)

Kristin@Will Run for Wine
Quinton@Q on the Move
Shawn@Chasing Immortality 1 mile at a time
Lindsay@Chasing the Kenyans

In other quick news.

*I'm posting my training info. on my side bar above my blog roll, today anyway. I'm not sure if I will leave this up or not. I'm wishy washy on this. And yes, I have done a few runs between October 1, 2008 and today but I've not yet imported my data:)

*My son got an invite to play on the Northern Wings Select Hockey team. He is SO excited. I am excited for him. He's so much fun to watch!!

*Like I said, I'm back to work next week. I've been enjoying this extra time off and free time to catch up with some of you and finally get through my inbox but I also get anxious for my routine. I'm way more organized when I'm busy and I waste WAY less time doing NOTHING....

Julie said...

Do people always comment on your amazing legs? Do people ever call you "legs"? What are your nicknames?

Ana-Maria RunTriLive said...

You really put yourself out there, Jenn! I can think of some questions...but will restrain myself..or maybe not!

1. If you could not run, what would you do instead?

2. Would you still run/exercise even if it would not affect how you look?

3. Any thoughts on retirement, when kids are off to college? Any big or small dreams for those years?

4. When are you moving to Arlington MA, so we could run together on the Minuteman bikepath?

5. What do you do at night since you obviously sleep so little?

6. How did you pick your kids names (love them!).

7. Have you ever been a blond?

8. What's your running dream?

OK, I better stop. Really, feel free to pick and choose:)

XLMIC said...

Do you guys share tampons? What is his favorite brand? Is that also yours?

Have you ever watched a pornographic movie…even a 'tame' one…in its entirety? Which one? What did you think?

Did you ever play hockey on a team like your kids do?

I will be back with more later.

@Caroline…no middle name for me either.

ThE MidLiFe CrUiSeR said...

Hey there! I'll play along :) Love this idea!

1) Do you shave or wax your pits?
2) Favorite make-up line?
3) Favorite book?
4) Would you rather eat in or out?

I can't wait to see what your answers are to all the crazy questions people are asking!

Jamoosh said...

What is your perfect distance?

Lisa @ Eat.Pray.Run. said...

Okay, I'll pose the same questions to you that I did to Chris K. Not because I'm too lazy and unoriginal to think of different questions, but because A) i'm basically obsessed with food and love to hear about it whenever possible and B) i'm basically obsessed with the idea of running in new places and love to hear about other people's favorite running spots. So, here goes:

If I were to visit your town...
1. What's your favorite food spot and what would you suggest eating there?

2. What's your favorite local running spot/route.

Can't wait to read your answers!

Jill said...

YAY for your son, that is soooo exciting.

I feel like I have done nothing all summer, my house shows it! When I am working, I am way more organized and my time management skills kick into high gear. Most of the time ;). I can also read more blogs cuz I'm strapped to my computer! Ha.

- Do you ever wish you lived elsewhere?

- If yes to #1, and you moved to say Colorado (yay!!) where hockey is not popular, what do you think your kids would do instead?

- If moola were not an option, what race would you like to do the most?

- How many pairs of boots are on your fall shopping budget?

- What is your highest mileage?

- If you could get free coaching from like an elite marathon coach, would you do it (beings you like to do your own thang :))?

- Would you pace a friend in his/her come-back marathon after being injured for like a year, even it it meant being agonyzingly slow?

- When are you coming to Colorado to hang with me?

Amanda@runninghood said...

I love that your equipment listed in your current 12 mile run is listed as "brooks lunch" tell what kind fuel this this Brooks Lunch is...ha ha. ;)

Amanda@runninghood said...

What do you see yourself doing/how do you see yourself living a typical day when you are 80?

If you could travel anywhere and money wasn't an issue, where would you go?

Have you traveled to many placed around the world?

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

I wanna know what sports you played in high school (hockey??)!!

I'm not sure I want to know about the tampons...okay, yes, of course I do!

Who would play you in a movie?

ajh said...

Hey Jill I know one place she wants to live!

I tagged Lindsay too. That is prob. happening a lot.

I definitely want to know about the tampons. And also - is he okay with this being out there in blog world?

Did you do sports when you were a kid? If so what was your favorite?

If you were given 5 minutes to grab as much as you could in LULU what would you go for and how much do you think you would get? Let's make it 3 minutes. 5 minutes is pretty long.

Raina said...

Yay Max!!!

I bet I can guess the answer to the joe/tampon Q. Ha.

Only one Q: Will you please leave up the training stuff?? :)

XLMIC said...

When you first ran, did just love it or did you hate it?

Were just relatively speedy from the start…or were you ever butt-slow?

What ingredients are in you favorite flavor of hotdish? And if I ever ate dinner at your house, would you make it for me?

Shawn said...

If you could have starred as the lead female in any movie.....who would you have been?

How many questions did you expect to answer with this Q & A?

Are you surprised at the number of followers you have?

We know you work with smiles, what is your dream profession or are you doing it?

As I was asked in a HR course once....what do you dislike the most about yourself and why? started it!!!

lindsay said...

I'm giving Joe the benefit of the doubt and assuming he has some gnarly nose bleeds...

Who is your least favorite relative?
What is something embarrassing that happened in high school? (or middle school, if you were cool in high school)
When will you have a hotdish giveaway?
Where would you go on a dream vacation?
Why did you name your kids the names you named?
How did you and Joe meet? Mail order bride? ;)
