I think we can all agree that we want more blog love between us and our favorite bloggers. It's no fun to comment and comment somewhere and never get a response. I actually felt pretty good yesterday organizing my Google Reader into a folder with just those who communicate with me, whether that is via comments, responses, emails, whatever. That way I can easily read through all of your posts. Love it! (I'm actually trying to figure out how to switch to Wordpress so I can quickly respond to comments via email. If anyone has any tips for me, let me know!)
For almost all of you who asked, short reader feeds are when bloggers shorten their posts when they're in readers (i.e. Google Reader) so to read the rest of the post you have to click through to the site. This doesn't mean I don't read the blog, it just may take me a bit longer :)
I hope I didn't offend anyone with this, but I thought it was interesting, and was definitely something I needed to get off my chest. I freaking LOVE the running blog community, and what I love most is that we are all excruciatingly honest with each other. At least, that's what I'm striving for.
If you haven't commented yet, please head over there and give me your thoughts! I like the conversation we're having :)
I was tagged a while ago by my favorite running blogger with 'tude, Mica. Sorry this has taken so long but GAH I've been so busy not running and all. But it's Friday and I'm feeling lazy so here goes.
Where I blog (most of the time):
We have a pretty small one bedroom apartment, so for right now, our kitchen table doubles as our desk. Unfortunately since Matt is still in school, it's usually pretty messy. I was gonna clean up for the picture, but eh, too much effort. Matt has this horrible habit of hanging up his jeans on the chairs when he changes into shorts. The dining room/office/living room is not your closet baby! He knows I hate this yet he continues doing it. I guess he could do worse things.
What are you wearing right now?
What’s the last thing you read/what are you currently reading?
Runners World Magazine. Marathon Challenge!
Do you nap a lot?
No! I only nap if I'm sick.
Who was the last person you hugged?
What’s your current obsession/addiction?
Hmm. I like this whole blog thing! Also, marathon training and juicing.
(I added this one) What is your dream job?
A travel writer! Seriously, how cool would that be.
What’s for dinner?
Cornish game hens roasting away in the slow cooker.
What was the last thing you bought?
Other than food? Probably a pair of running shorts for $6.99 at TJ Maxx. Score!
What are you listening to right now?
I really want the new Dave Matthews CD. Also that new Black Eyed Peas song is playing in my head. Something about having a good night.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Flying!!! I always have dreams I can fly and wake up sorely disappointed.
What is your favorite kind of weather and why?I love love love springtime! High 60's with a breeze baby. Of course, the 70s are nice too on the beach.
What time do you usually wake up?
I always try to get up at 5:30 and run. But I usually end up rolling out of bed around 6:30-7 AM wondering why I keep setting my alarm for so early.
What is your most challenging goal right now?
Passing the Series 7 exam. Boo! Maybe this is why I didn't pass the first time....
Favorite pair of shoes you keep going back to over and over again even though you have a zillion others?
I have a pair of black and cream patent BCBG pumps that are my favorite. Unfortunately I have worn them to death and the cobbler tells me he cannot fix them. So, I guess I would say I no longer have a favorite pair. So, maybe my $3 gold Old Navy flips?
Name one thing you can’t live without.
Cell phone. LoveitGottahaveit.
What time is bedtime?
9:30-11:30. I always shoot for earlier but it depends whats on TV :) (Tuesday nights it's always later...REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NJ)
If there was one place you could be right now, where would it be?Back packing through Europe with my boo. And since it is also Foto Friday, maybe somewhere that looks like this...

Ran 4.41 last night in...45:09...it sucked! I started out fine but ended up taking a few walk breaks. I need new shoes. My muscles were tight. Ugh, hope it gets better!
