Race Schedule and Results

Q and A with moi

I'm totally at a lost for a blog post these days.  I feel like it's always about training and racing.  And since there aren't any of those "here are 8 bajillion facts about me" posts going around, I thought that I'd open it up to you guys.

Anything you want to know about yours truly?  Leave me a question in my comment section and I'll write a post answering your questions.  It can be about anything...

Have fun and be creative!!!

OK, so what happens if you are 103 miles into an IM and you have to poop? Do you push to the finish because it's only 9 miles longer and maybe 27-30 minutes to go? Or do you find that porto as quickly as possible?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Lauren said...

How did Tom propose? :) I have engagement fever!

Jamie said...

Most embarrassing moment. Doesn't have to be tri related. :-)

Ironman By Thirty said...

I'm sure you probably covered this in a previous post somewhere, but how did you get started in this crazy sport?

Kristen said...

What is your favorite thing to do when you are not swimming, biking, or running?

Alisa said...

I love when I get to ask questions...

1) What made you decide to sign up for your first IM?

2) Do you and Tom want kids?

3) Do have or have you ever considered hiring a coach? If so, what are the pluses and minuses in your opinion?

Alright, I think that's enough :).

What are a couple things on your bucket list? (does not have to be sports/endurance related)

If you could do ANY race ANY where in the world regardless of cost/logistics/etc. what would it be?

Big Daddy Diesel said...

- How did you and Tom become such studs on the bike?

- If you couldnt do sbr, what activities would you think you would end up doing as a hobby?

- Do penquins have knees?

Kovas said...

I'd like to hear about Team Type 1 and the run across the states! Maybe a guest post and then you don't even need to do the work. :)

Matty O said...

I was afraid to click the comments button for what might end up being asked HAHA. Great questions though :)

I asked a bunch of questions at dinner earlier this spring... let's see... ... ...

1. is training and working with your spouse difficult? Do you ever feel its TOO MUCH time together? (My honest answer is I love it... curious though)

2. I like Jason's question...

3. Where do you see yourself right now had you not gotten into triathlons?

4. Why do you still live in Ohio?

5. Do you ever feel pressured to perform well in events because Tom is a speedy McSpeederson? (not saying you AREN'T Ms. Speedy, since he is a machine does that affects your competitive drive).

I know you guys probably have different goals at races too, but some of these questions have come up with H and I.

Matty stole my thunder. As a former resident of the buckeye state, I was going to ask if you think you'll ever move somewhere else?

Marci said...

Being the bookworm I am I have to ask... What is your most favorite book you've ever read?

Robyn said...

Since it's 95 degrees here... What's your favorite winter workout?

Molly said...

I always have food on the brain....so what would your last meal be?!?!?

Jeff - DangleTheCarrot said...

Like to know your answer Jason's question! I found out my answer to it in trial by fire!!

And MattyO's #4 Q please (-:

Allison said...

1) I was actually going to send you a message about this. Just starting running, as you know, and yesterday I had my first day with really lead-filled legs. Seriously just couldn't get moving after our walk (supposed to run 10 min., walk 3 min., run 10 min.). How do you get through this? Any tricks?

2) And I was also wondering about whether you guys want kids :)

Anne-Marie said...

Very cool idea! I like Lauren's question about Tom's proposal - make that x2! :)

Chris K said...

1) What is the meaning of life?
2) What is the secret to being happy?
3) What is the secret to a good relationship?
4) Can I steal this idea for my blog?
5) If the answer to #4 is yes, can you tell your other readers that only I can do it?

Richelle said...

How did you and Tom meet?

Wes said...

how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll tootsie pop?

Rebecca said...

When are you coming to Italy ?!


(Oh wait, is that not the type of question you meant?! Just sayin - I mean- I am sitting on our hotel balcony overlooking the ocean with a mojito in hand while all three boys are sleeping... does that entice you at all?!) HA

Chris K said...

C'mon, when are you gonna answer these questions so I can steal your idea.

Kristin @ Lazy Marathoner said...

I rarely have any training to post about either, and I have two IMs coming up! Ha, guess I better get busy. Hope you're having a great holiday weekend!

Lindsay and James Cotter said...
