11 Random Things About Me:

  1.  I’m of a closet dancer. I don’t dance in the closet, but I love to dance at home even though I am shy on a public dance floor.
  2. Since there were so many Jennifer’s in my generation, I was often called by my last name.
  3. I always wanted to work in fashion or fashion magazines. I used to cover my walls from ceiling to floor with my favorite fashion photography.
  4. I ran the Honolulu Marathon in 2000. It was likely my first and last, but I’d like to try for a half marathon.
  5. Although I am from the northeast. I lived in Seattle for 15 years. I am back east now, but I do miss the Pacific Northwest. So lovely out there.
  6. I don’t drink much, but when I do, I love a good Cosmopolitan.
  7. I won $1000 for my body transformation with P90X. If you search P90X before and after photos, my photos are typically in the top 2 rows on the list.
  8. I admit it, I love reality TV. My favorites include Project Runway, Biggest Loser and The Voice.
  9. I traveled to Australia and New Zealand for 8 weeks by myself.
  10. My father was a New York City Police officer so I grew up with lots of cool cop stories.
  11. As a former New Yorker, the things I always get when I visit are a bagel, pizza, black & white cookie and cheesecake. Visits to NY are obviously not very healthy for me. LOL!

Janice’s questions for me:

  1. What was the first sport that you played? – I did gymnastics for a while when I was younger.
  2. What’s your favorite song to workout to? – Moves Like Jagger
  3. Are you a cardio or a weight junkie? – I like to blend the two
  4. What is one thing that you would like to do better? – Socialize with people local to me and not just on the web. It’s so hard to find time beyond family time.

  6. Are you a back, side or front sleeper? – Side
  7. Do you workout in the morning? night? or other? Typically morning or afternoon.
  8. What do you do when you aren’t working out or blogging? Other than cleaning the house, laundry, dishes? Not much.

  10. How many burpees can you do in a row? (Yes – you have to do as many as you can and report back to me). I hate you! I can currently do about 20 with good form if I am not combining the with other workout moves.

That is cool that you traveled to Australia and New Zealand by yourself. My grandmother was originally from Australia and I would love to go check it out after hearing all her stories, but I would never have the guts to go all by myself!

Wahoo! I have this set to go next Tuesday. How fun! Thanks for thinking about me! So why would you not do another marathon? I am just curious! Most people say this after they run their first!
