You know I love running and following running bloggers. Well, Elle from Eat, Run, Sail (Canadian Blogger) shared this recent running survey and I thought I would give it a try!
Runners: Would You Rather?
Would you rather run in a thunderstorm or a snowstorm?
I would rather run in a snowstorm then thunderstorm any day!
Would you rather breathe through your nose or breathe through your mouth?
I’m a mouth breather until I start thinking about my breathing and then try to breathe through my nose.
Would you rather do 100 squats or 100 crunches?
Oh dear, I dunno! I think I would go with 100 crunches!
Would you rather have a baked good for dessert or an extra serving of your favourite entrée?
Extra serving of my favourite entrée.
Would you rather run on a treadmill for an hour or run around the same street block for an hour?
Oh man, another hard one. Since we JUST got our treadmill I would say on the treadmill only because I think I would lose it if I had to run on the same street over and over again. At least on the treadmill I could read a magazine or watch something on my husband’s Ipad.
Would you rather have a headache during a run or a side stitch?
Headache’s I can handle, side stitches slow me down.
Would you rather have a rest day on a work day or a day off?
Goodness, this is hard! I would say rest day on a day off then I can enjoy the whole day with my family.
Would you rather be a race director or a race volunteer?
I’ve done both but would pick race director. I like working with others to plan a big event and have been part of a Youth Run for 6 years! We grew from 138 kids to 450 in five years. Though I have stepped back from my “race director’s” role (really chair committee) I love the planning.
Would you rather spend your money on running gadgets [HRM, GPS watch, Headphones] or running shoes?
Running shoes 🙂
Would you rather run in a relay or do the run portion of a distance triathlon?
I would love to do a relay someday – it would be fun to see how I could contribute to a team of runners.
This was a great survey, thanks Elle for sharing.
Now it’s your turn, leave a comment answering 1 or more of the questions or do a blog post about it and leave me the link!
PS – Last day to enter The Summit Seeker Book Giveaway!

I would do the squats- I hate crunches! Lol
I feel like I squat a lot with my 13 month old so I wouldn’t want to do anymore 😉

Thanks for sharing!
This is an awesome quiz! You know I’m going to do it!
Awesome! Can’t wait to read it!
Oh I’d much rather be a race volunteer than a director. I know what a huge undertaking it is to put on a race!!!
I love volunteering at runs but would love to take on a BIG race someday!
fun questionnaire!!! I would also rather run in a snow storm. and i’d rather breathe through my nose, I feel like it does a way better job of sucking in desperately needed oxygen
Ah yes, those moments when you just NEED a little more oxygen!
So glad you did the survey, too. And it is fun to see your answers and compare them to mine and others. Have a great Friday!
It was a fun one I’ve never seen before! I hope others do it too! Have a great weekend!
I think I’d rather run in a thunderstorm. I don’t mind the rain but cold??? I don’t do cold very well lol!
Fun survey! I think I would go with 100 squats, run with a headache and run around the same block for an hour. Thanks, the survey made me smile!
Fun questions! As someone who has gotten caught on a run in a thunderstorm before I would definitely pick the snow storm. I don’t think I’ve ever been so scared before!
