my first award

yay! i'm super excited to receive my first bloggy award! i was hoping this day would come :) i would like to thank chloe from tryin' to throw my arms around the world for this wonderful honor!

so, as a recipient of the "versatile blogger award" i am to share 6 or 7 things about myself. here goes!

ONE. i just recently conquered my fear of needles! i used to be deathly afraid of needles but my dr insisted once and it wasn't that bad. i then decided to give blood since i'm a big advocate of saving lives!

TWO. as you may or may not know, i'm a marathon runner! i have been running since 2006 with team in training benefiting the leukemia & lymphoma society collectively raising over $20,000 in the last 4 years! i've ran 1 marathon and 5 half marathons...currently training for the san antonio rock n roll marathon! on a mission to meet 26.2 again! my favorite? it's a tie between the nike marathon & the disney princess 1/2 marathon!

THREE. i'm a hypochondriac! when you're around me, please don't ever mention that something is wrong with you because chances are it's contagious and i already have it! or in this case, don't blog about because i will be blogging about it the next day :)

FOUR. i will be making my first visit to NYC in august! i am super excited, so if anyone knows of any must see or dos, please share!

FIVE. my boyfriend and i have been together for five years. he is the love of my life and my very best friend. our very first date was on valentine's day. he sent me roses anonymously, took me for dinner at my favorite restaurant, then out for drinks and a game of pool. it was a perfect night that i will always remember!

SIX. i'm a hopless romantic who believes in happy endings.

and now the fun part! i get to give the award away! winner, winner, winner:

P, from Adventures of an Average Athlete

emz, from If I can't convince you - - I'll at least confuse you.

kelly, from kelly leigh gets busy

lara lee, from dawn of a beginning

and........drum roll please,

  4. thanks :)

    NYC is one of my most favoritest places in the whole world. (its where my hubby and i got engaged). for your first time i'd say standard stuff - central park, time square...

    be sure to budget your time well though. no matter how many days you're there it won't be enough.

  5. Thanks for the sweet comments on my blog! It's nice to meet a San Antonio girl who RUNS!!! I am SO impressed that you have done so many marathons! I'm a new follower and I look forward to seeing more about your running adventures! Happy 4th of July weekend to you!

    U will love NYC!!!!!!! So great there, amazing food, shopping, and shows!!!

    Yeah the fish looks scary, but it was yum! I didnt eat the skin , I think you could of, but not for me!

  7. Aww I'm glad I was the one to give you your first award! :] Love your answers! I hope I can meet you at a Disney Princess 1/2 one day...I'm DYING to run that race!

    And I grew up 30 minutes from New York City...what would you like to know? :] If there's only one big thing you do while you're there GO SEE A BROADWAY SHOW. Seriously. I live for them. Well, not really live for them, but you get my point, LOL. I've seen a few, so I have some recommendations pending on your taste in music...
