Awards Galore!

Spring has (sort of) sprung, and so have the awesome blog awards! I just received two nominations. [I apologize in advance for the wonky spacing in this post. I’m not sure what WP is doing.]

One is for the Sunshine Award from I Run in the Rain.


The other is for the Liebster Award from Finish Line Runner. Thank you so much, ladies!

  1. I used to have a lip ring too! (And I’m also a frequent faller. Oops.)
    Thank you so much for this lovely award! I love stuff like this because it gives me a little more insight into the bloggers that I love so much!

  2. I loved reading this post about yourself! For some reason knowing all kind of random facts about people is the greatest way to get to know them.
    Thank you so much for the award, I really appreciate it!

  3. Found you from a link from Run Salt Run. How appropriate that the first post I read provides all of this info about you!

    You were a dishwasher?!?! This is the one job I could NEVER do (and I have low standards, as I spend a large portion of my work day cleaning up poo). Washing dishes is like torture to me. I HATE HATE HATE it.

    1. Howdy and welcome! 🙂 I actually kicked ass at being a dishwasher and out-performed all of the guys I worked with! I thought I was wicked cool, but in reality I was a sweaty, messy, well . . . mess! But I had fun somehow. I can’t wait to check out your site!
