A fun runners survey!

Found this on one of the blogs I follow.  You know my love for survey fun, so here goes:

1. FUEL: Shot Bloks, GU, Energy Chews, Candy or Other?

Still trying to figure this out but I am certain that GU is not the option.  Tried it and did not like it.  Next up is shot bloks.

2. Race Length: 5K, 10K, 1/2 Marathon, Marathon, Ultra or Other?

I love the 10K but I think I can get use to the 1/2 marathon.  Now I think I have finally decided to train for a full marathon.  Let’s see how that goes!

3. Workout Bottoms: Skirts, Running Shorts, Capris, Pants, or Other?

Running shorts!!!  I don’t mind the capris when it is under 40 degrees but my legs get really hot!

4. Sports Drink: Gatorade, Powerade, Cytomax, you stick to water when you run or Other?

I will drink water when I run.  Never very much but enough to keep me going.

5. Running temperatures: HOT or COLD?

I grew up in the heat and I am so happy to be in the cold.  I have never liked to run in the cold before this year.  Nothing better than a 40 degree run!

6. Running Shoe Brands: Saucony, Mizuno, Nike, Brooks, Asics, or Other?

Saucony is the only shoe for me right now!  I get new ones about every three months and I can’t seem to venture away from them.

7. Pre-Race Meal: Oatmeal. Bagel, Banana, Eggs, Cereal or Other?

If I am running early I eat half a toasted bagel with peanut butter.  It has worked in the past so why change it.  Late day races, I just eat pretty normal just nothing very heavy or full of fiber.

8. Rest Days: 1x per week, 2x per week, never ever ever or Other?

I don’t feel like I ever rest but unfortunately due to my crazy schedule I get forced to not run (rest) at least 2 days out of the week.

9. Music: Have to have it or go without it?

I feel like I really need music.  I ran my half without music and it was painful towards the end.  But really it comes down to where my head is.  If I am in a good mood, no music is needed but if I am in a bad mood that is when the doubt creeps in.

10. #1 reason for running: stress-relief, endorphins, you love to race, so you can eat all the cupcakes you want, weight-loss, love running for social reasons or other?

Stress-relief, endorphins, and really most important is so I can eat dessert!  I love sweet things and I feel less guilty if I have made it to the gym or just gone for a run.

Why do you run?
