Since so many bloggers have thrown so many questions our way, we didn't think it would be right to only answer one persons questions, so we are taking a combination of the questions you guys have asked but we're gonna do it a little differently. Since there is the two of us, we won't answer that many questions because we need to keep this post a reasonable length. We don't want to bore you!
So this is our Friday 5........
1. On Other Sport:
Lacey: I played tennis in High School. When I was younger I played Softball but never wanted to make the All-Star Team because I didn't want to get up on Summer mornings and go to practice. I played soccer when I was really young but determined that I enjoyed eating the oranges on the sideline better than playing. I wanted to quite after I was told I couldn't be the goalie!
Meranda: I was a gymnast from middle school through college. In all those years I never suffered one injury! I've really been serious about running for only 2 years and already I've been injured for 5 months! What's up with that? I was also a cheerleader ( I know, I even thought it was dumb while I was doing it, but I was short and it was the only way I had a good view of the field...I kid), I was pretty shy in school and I didn't even try out for the team ( squad). The coach called me and asked me to be a part of it. I agreed.
Lacey: I had ALWAYS wanted a Barbie Power wheels car (remember them?). I never got one, but one year my Dad bought me a Go-kart. I guess I was better off with the Go-Kart because my neighbor who had a power wheels didn't get to ride hers often because it never held a charge. I on the other hand got to ride the Go-Kart around the neighborhood in the snow!
Meranda: I had ALWAYS wanted an Easy Bake oven but never got one. Ironically enough during our last trip to Disney in February my sister and I were casually chatting and I found out that she HAD an Easy bake oven when we were kids!!! How did I not know this??? I have a pretty good memory so I assured her it was probably another toy she was thinking about. Afterall, we did have a lot of that Fischer Price Play Kitchen stuff. But nope, she was sure it was the Easy Bake oven. She assured me that I wasn't missing out on anything because her brownies never turned out right anyway!
3. Getting Personal:
Lacey: I was recently told that I am a teeth grinder and the dentist wants me to spend $400 on a mouth guard. This supposed "teeth grinding" doesn't bother me, so I don't see the point in the guard. I have never had my wisdom teeth out, and I still have my tonsils. I've had Lasik eye surgery.
Meranda: I've had my wisdom teeth out. I've had my tonsils and adenoids both removed and getting Lasik scares me. I'm afraid I'd go blind.
We both love reading books. Our favorites are Danielle Steel, Emily Giffin, Beth Harbison, Sophie Kinsella, Jennifer Weiner, Sarah Stromeyer.
Lacey, I read a lot of running books as well. I could care less whether or not I had cable. I always have episodes of Sex and the City downloaded on my ipad and they are great for when I have long over nights or for watching while I'm on the treadmill. My favorite movie of all times is Tommy Boy.
Meranda: Yes, I cried as I read Marley and Me and stupid me, I even went to the theater to see it (on Christmas) and I cried some more. Did I think the ending was going to be different then the book? I don't watch much TV either, but I will watch repeats of Sex and the City and Dallas any day. Yes, that's the OLD version of Dallas. My husband and I visit the set of Dallas back in 2006 and since then I've collected every season of that old TV series. It is seriously 100 times better then the new series of Dallas. Check out our tour of SOUTH FORK ranch ( the set of Dallas).
Lacey: I would say my biggest accomplishment to date is completing the Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge. Running Boston was definitely an accomplishment in its self that I am proud of but I am very grateful that I got to run at Big Sur not only once, but twice.
Meranda: Although I think every race that I finish is an accomplishment, my proudest moments are academic ones. Getting my first teaching job was an accomplishment for me but then I've also felt accomplished when I've seen my written work show up in newspapers and magazines.
