7 Links

The lovely Sarah over at Running on Words tagged me for the 7 Links post.  She is on a path to healthy living, and writes a no-holds-barred blog about losing weight through exercise and healthy food choices.  Go check her out!

I have to admit I had a bit of a hard time with this since I don't do the more traditional style of blogging.  I'm unique difficult.  But I put my thinking cap on and here is what I came up with.

Most Beautiful:  I really don't think this applies to my blog, but I decided to pick the one where I look the hottest.  My flash mob post.

Yup. H.O.T... You all see it, right?

Most Popular AND Most Controversial:  Since I routinely never run headlong into conflict and controversy, my blog tends to be a happy place.  But my first spin post was linked on a cycle instructor site and I got a lot of feedback from instructors giving me advice on finding the right class. (For the record, it was just my very first class and it was hard.  No one did anything wrong.)
Also, someone on that site wrote an article about his discontent regarding the stereotypes he believes I'm promoting.  That was interesting.

Most Helpful:  I would have to say that my amazing tips on the Athletic Stance has helped an inordinate amount of people...right?

Surprise Success:
I picked the post with the most comments as a judge of success, since I don't want to repeat myself from the 'most popular' link.  It was the post on my running form.

Not Enough Attention:
I guess I'd say my downhill ski post. But really, it's that it was syndicated on BlogHer and didn't get as much interest as the spin post :)

Most Proud:
It's not so much the post, but the story behind it. My very first half marathon at Chelan Man (it's a 2-parter. Second part is here.)

I have done 2 more halfs since then and 2 tris.  There are or will be posts for all of them and I would say that *finishing* my tri last year was an incredibly proud moment.

Now, to tag 5 very funny people:

Kristin over at KFun

Megan over at WatchMeGoRun

Tonya over at Where Have All the Hobos Gone?

Lindsey over at TexaGermaNadian

Bernie over at One Mixed Bag

UPCOMING POSTS:  BIKING, TRIATHLON RECAPS, Q&A RESPONSE, OTHER BLOG AWARDS (I should really get to those more quickly...)

Okay, Boys and Girls

We're changing things up a little since TriGuy has absconded with the ipad (i.e. drawing doohickey) for the week.  

It's pop quiz time.

Ok, not really;  it's the Q & A post.  Megan from WatchMeGoRun (my very second non-family blog follower and my bloggy bestie) tagged me with this:

me, TriGirl.

So, ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies...oh no, wait.  That doesn't really work here.
Alright, ask away (in the comments section) and I will answer*.

*Answers may be slightly exaggerated for my your amusement.

P.S.  If you want to stroke my ego a little, jump on over to For the Love of Blogs and click on my site for Best in Humor; you can vote every day (it's #16).  I've stayed away from it for a few days and just had a look. I've currently edged out my competition by a couple of votes. Thanks guys!

P.P.S.  If you want to stroke my ego a LOT, head on over to my Zazzle store and check out all the pretty things I made for you! There are shirts (you can choose a bunch of different colours/styles), mugs, bumper stickers, totes, and even a keychain!)  You can also just click on the link in the sidebar!
