SYW: Week 13

Share Your World Week 13

Are you left or right handed?  

Right handed

If you had only one TV, would you prefer the TV in the living room or another room?

I would love to have no TV, but as I have to live with other people, the TV would go in the living room. I’d never have a house big enough to have too many other rooms.

Have you ever participated in a distance walking, swimming, running, or biking event? Tell your story.

I have run the NY marathon three times. The first time was madness. I had just started running, was completing my Master’s degree at 30/, had quit smoking and had ended a relationship. Running 3-4 hours by myself was just what I needed. However, there were many times I thought what am I doing, I am crazy, there’s no way I can do this.  “I am the turtle,” became my slogan.  I am still slow, but these days I just run 2-3 miles.

I also did a bike century once, but hated it. It wasn’t fun like the marathon – for me anyhow. It was so crowded And bottlenecked. Many places I had to get out and walk my bike. I also kept losing my friends who had convinced me to do this in the first place. 

Complete this sentence: Love is… .

All you need.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

For Spring Break we are taking a road trip south. So far we have stopped in DC to check out potential neighborhoods for our move, then on to North Carolina where I met up with some childhood friends and then Charleston. Today we are on our way to Savannah, GA. Road trips are not my thing – I’d rather be walking then riding, but so far with all the stops it’s been ok. I am not looking forward to the trip back home however, when my husband plans on driving straight through.
