Piper’s Run, A to Zee – Get to know me.
I thought this would be a great time to post this A to Z survey that I saw recently on a blog I follow, It’s Progression Not Perfection. So, a little about me, Piper’s Run…a.k.a. Anna, Mom, Wife, Runner/Workout etc….
B is for breakfast today: Coconut Yogurt, Blueberries and Love Grown Granola (sweet cranberry coconut pecan)
C is for currently craving: Grapefruit
D is for dinner tonight: Home made Quesadilla’s (salsa, black beans, whole wheat wrap, cheese and chicken)
E is for favorite type of exercise: Soccer, Running, Jillian Michael’s DVD workouts (in that order) and more recently my Plank Challenge – well that might not be my favourite – but it’s fun trying to beat my last time.
F is for an irrational fear: Of Spiders – oh man I can’t stand to see a spider. Now, I won’t kill them (anymore) but I really really don’t like them. When I was a kid, I had nightmares from the “Arachnophobia” movie preview on TV …didn’t even watch the movie but the previews got me.
G is for gross food: Raw onions. Cooked, I’m okay with …. like french onion soup, chili or mushrooms and onions. But I can’t do them raw – yuck.
H is for hometown: Halifax, Nova Scotia (Canada)
I is for something important: Daily Physical Activity is important to me. I try to be active every day; whether that’s a walk with our dog, playing outside with our daughter, running or another high intensity activity. Being active daily is important to me.
J is for current favorite jam: Big fan of Raspberry Jam WITH the seeds. Yum yum! OR Jam – as in music – right now, anything that get’s me moving or dancing with our little one.
K is for kids: 1 daughter – Lilly, who will be 2 this summer.
L is for current location: Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia; or in my kitchen typing away at our computer.
M is for the most recent way you spent money: Groceries: milk, banana’s, and treats for my April foodie penpal!
N is for something you need: New runners – mine are hurting. I can’t even comment on how many kilometers are on them – its way beyond embarrassing.
O is for occupation: I am a Regional Physical Activity Coordinator with the Province of Nova Scotia. I work with community groups, organizations, clubs and schools etc to increase physical activity at the community level; early years to seniors.
P is for pet peeve: When a smoker doesn’t respect non-smokers. ie: smoking outside office windows, blowing smoke in your face, or you use a public washroom after a smoker has just use it – and they just had a smoke, YUCK!
Q is for a quote:”A day in the mountains is worth a mountain of books” John Muir. I actually have a quote book where I write down quotes I like or would like to share with others. But “a day in the mountains..” is one of my top favourite quotes.
R is for random fact about you: I’m peppered in freckles 🙂 When I was a child, a friends mom said to me “Your parents put you in front of a screen door and threw mud at you – that’s why you have freckles”. We both laughed at the time …. and I still can now at that comment. She passed away in a car accident a number of years ago and I truly appreciated her in my life and everything she did for me as a child. I am proud to have those muddy freckles.
S is for favorite healthy snack: Coconut Yogurt and Blueberries
T is for favorite treat: Cold Junior Mints (I usually keep a box in my fridge and eat a few here and there – they last for days this way).
U is for something that makes you unique: I have a retired sled dog named Maclean – she used to pull sleds for Outward Bound in Ontario. I guess that is unique ?!?!?
V is for favorite vegetable: Asparagus and Sweet Potatoes

- Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred, Level 1.
