Giraffy of 365 Days of Awesome tagged me with:

She’s so nice.  This means though that I must give you random facts about me.  LOL. 

Since I didn’t run today, I AM READY.  Random facts about this trail running blogger (that is me) are:

1)  I love shoes – all kinds of shoes:  running shoes, boots, sandals, heels, you name it.  I haven’t been buying shoes since I’m poor now, but I still have plenty to keep me content (I had to clean out my closet anyway).

2)  I have a library (now my husband’s office) that holds hundreds upon hundreds of books:  These are some of my most favorite books in the whole wide world (and also part of my library that has over-flowed into my bedroom):

3)  I am the oldest of 5 children (& I am 21 years older than the youngest – we all have the same parents).

This is from a long, long time ago!

4)  I am an unpublished novelist.  I write mainly historical fiction (and short stories for the fun of it.) 

5)  I have published short (very short) articles on the internet re: misc. things like software programs, Health Savings Accounts and weight training.

6)  The following instruments are in my home:  accordion, MusicNotesmandolin, violin, guitars (3), an electric piano, a baby grand piano that takes up a good portion of our living room,  a recorder and at least 3 harmonicas.

7)  My other passions are WWII history and Russian history.  I don’t care much about pre-historic history.

8)  If I were to live my life again and could do anything I wanted, I would be a dancer.

9)  I have voted in every election since I was able to vote, and lastly,

10) I DO NOT watch the news.

SmileI hope that you found these random facts semi-interesting.  Now, it’s my turn to tag.  I know this lady is super busy, and she might not see this tag, but if she does, I tag you Running Green Girl with the Amazing blogger Award (don’t forget the random facts) because you are are so optimistic and supportive to so many athletes.
