Q&A with Lisa - Part 2

Before I get to the Q&A, a quick update. My back was doing a lot better this weekend. Still not good enough to run or cycle, but I swam on Saturday and I have been walking every day (15.5 miles in the past week).

Unfortunately, I had a little bit of a setback yesterday. It twinged again while I was tending to the garden. Although not as bad as before, I guess I overdid it. Taking it easy today.

Okay, on to the rest of the Q&A! See part 1 here. Between the two posts, I think I got them all. If I missed one, sorry!

Adam asked

  • What would you do if you won a free pair of brooks shoes on my blog? - I’m pretty excited about that! I’d like to get a pair of Brooks Trail running shoes, probably Cascadia 6. Still waiting to hear back from the Onlineshoes people…

Lindsay asked

  • what song(s) would be played during the 'running-shot montage' of you in your running video? - Let’s see, during the injured segments, It would be Little Feat’s Old Folk’s Boogie (for the line “an you know that you’re over the hill when your mind makes a promise that your body can’t fill” and during the actual running segments, it would be Pink’s Raise Your Glass (So raise your glass if you are wrong, in all the right ways, all my underdogs! We will never be never be anything but loud…”

  • you have to take a vacation somewhere in the USA. the only stipulation is that it can't be a typical big/well-known city like vegas, nyc, los angeles, etc... where would you go? - When the weather cools off, a get-away to Sedona AZ sounds nice, beautiful red rock canyon. Ahhhh.

  • what random bad habit do you have? - I have a tendency to leave things on the stove and forget about them. I’ve ruined two tea kettles and a bamboo steamer this way as well as many a pot of burned rice, veggies, etcs.

Lily on the Road asked

  • My question is...what ARE you going to do with your new Brooks you won from Adam? - See above. First I need to actually have a chance to pick them out, then I’ll know for sure J

RockStarTri asked

  • Do you miss being "slow and steady?" - I still feel that way when I tri; I’m not a very good cyclist. Just probably can’t claim it anymore when running since I’ve moved up more to the middle of the pack.


  1. Woot for the Brooks win!
    Sedona is SO beautiful!
    Be careful with that back.

  2. Loved your answers. Somewhere between all the Q&A's going around I missed yours. Life has been busy lately. Take care of that back.

  3. hope your back gets better soon! i love these q&a, awesome. i have ruined many teapots as well letting them sit on the stove too long. oops!

  6. I've never been to Sedona. I'll have to put it on my list.

    I hope your back stops twinging soon!

  7. i've never been to AZ period... but heard a good bit about these red rocks on the blogs! will have to put it on my list :)
