Versatile Blogger...oh yeah

How Cool is this!!I was tagged in this fun activity!

There are a few basic rules with this award:

1. You have to thank the giver, and provide a link to the post. Thanks a ton to Julie over at You Just have to Tri

2. Share 7 random facts about yourself.

3. Award 15 other newly discovered blogs the same award (I changed this one up a little as you will see below.

7 Fun Facts

1. The reason I named my blog Happy Runner Girl is that was my user name on and that is where I met my husband. I thought that was a good title and good luck.

2. I ran cross-country and track in high school and college. My high school coach did a great job of turning me into a life long runner! I even ran with Kara Goucher (Wheeler then) when she was a 9th grader at the state CC meet in 1992 ha! I was only a minute and nine seconds behind her in a 2 mile race LOL!!

3. I recently fell in love with hiking 14er's out in Colorado. As a runner all my life I used to think hiking was so boring but once you make it to the top it's amazing and 14er's are HARD!

4. I love traveling, especially with my husband, we usually go to Mexico and it helps that I speak Spanish!

5. I want to be a mom someday! I am 35 I better get going :)

6. I know I can PR in a few more races but I fear the pain sometimes and  my competitiveness gets in the way. I just need to run for me!

7. I love my job and am so happy I chose the correct career path for me, I am a high school counselor, but my next career dream is to teach at the college level. (I already have an application in to teach night school and a local university).

So most of the blogs I read aren't I thought I would choose some inspiring/motivational blogs here...

  1. Thank you for the shout out! How cool that you ran with Kara Goucher way back when!

  2. My husband and I want to start doing 14ers. They just look like some much fun to tackle!

  3. Hi! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog today, I am thrilled to "meet" some other Colorado bloggers!

    We (my husband, daughter, and I) moved out here in 2007 and we have said every single year that we would love to hike a 14er, but have yet to do it! I think next summer is our year.

    I would love to meet Kara someday. Ummm....not run against her, but just meet her! So cool that you have ran with her.

  4. I've never done a 14er but I want to. My dad did a bunch of them a few years ago and I would love to try.

    Can't wait to check out some of the other blogs!

    I really want to come meet up with the Arvada running group. I don't think I'll be able to make it this week though. Not really sure about running up that road either. That's a tough one! I've ridden my bike up it...slowly, very slowly. :)

  5. 14ers are so much fun, I think I've done about 8 of them. I am fortunate that the CC team I run with does them for training in the summer :). You should run the Pikes Peak can knock off a 14er that way and it's an amazing race to do!!

  6. Siempre tengo ganas de hablar español! Thanks for the tag!
