Versatile Blogger Award

Thanks so much to the lovely Kelly at My Love Affair With Running for nominating me for a Versatile Blogger award! It is so kind of her to think my little blog should get one!

In order to receive the award, I have to do a few things including tell seven random facts about yourself and nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.

Here we go…

1. I held the men’s marathon finish line tape at the 2001 IAAF World Track and Field Championships. It was an incredible finish with only ONE second separating first and second place, Abera Gezahegne (Ethiopia) and Biwott Simon (Kenya).

For the rest of the games I worked the start line on the track.

2. My husband and I backpacked Australia and Thailand for four months in 2004 when we were dating. We didn’t work a day and lived the beach bum life!


3. I’ve been to Hawaii 10 times. No matter how many times I go, I never get bored!

4. I was a lifeguard and swimming instructor for seven years in high school and throughout university. Sometimes I wish I could go back to the simple and fun job!

5. I used to have my Monroe (where Marilyn’s mole was) pierced. And I have three tattoos.

6. I say that I could move to every place I’ve visited. I fall in love with anywhere and everywhere we travel! (At the top of my list of places to move are Denver, Scottsdale, Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, and Orlando.)

7. My favourite vegetables are radishes. I can’t get enough of the farmer’s market ones in summer.

Here are the 15 bloggers I nominate. Whether I’ve read their blogs for a long time or am a new reader, they inspire me in some way. I‘ve kind of categorized them from running, to triathlon, to healthy living blogs.

  1. Ms Zippy
  2. Live for the Run
  3. Neon Blonde Runner
  4. Kris Lawrence
  5. iRunner
  6. Runner’s Rambles
  7. Fitness Fatale
  8. Twenty-Six and Then Some
  9. Cotter Crunch
  10. Dietitian on the Run
  11. The Healthy Everythingtarian
  12. Daily Garnish
  13. Clean Eating Chelsey
  14. Nutritionella
  15. Peace Love Nutrition

Tell me a random fact about yourself!

  1. Oh my gosh you are too sweet to nominate me, YOU inspire ME in a major way. I wish I could do an ironman like you…maybe one day…

    I really appreciate your love for travel– whenever I travel I feel the same way, I think to myself “wow I wish I could live here”. You are going to LOVE Lake Tahoe and San Fran, I visited both of them in one trip last summer, both were beautiful, but in very different ways.

  2. I don’t know what I love best about this! The marathon tape is such a unique, awesome thing. Backpacking I’m sure is something you’ll cherish forever, wish I did that in school.

    You need to show me how to do Hawaii, I don’t think I could go back that much, but I trust you:)

    This is awesome and well, blushing for being nominated! You rock, and these are 7 more reasons to keep up with you!

  3. Thanks for the award! 🙂 I always fall in love with cities when we visit, too – I’ve said I would “love to move to” Seattle, New York, Boulder & when we go, I’m sure Burlington (VT) & Portalnd will be on that list, as well!

    Four months of backpacking + ten trips to Hawaii?! Do you two ever sit still? 😉 Love it.

  4. I was just looking at my Australia pictures today. Man, I loved that trip and would give anything to be a beach bum for a month. My random fact…I ran my first marathon last year on honor of my 3oth Bday!

Leave some love
