Would You Rather?

I saw a few of these, starting with Wendy, before or on Global Running Day.  Since I normally take Wednesday and Thursday off from blogging, I thought it would be fun to answer these questions today.

Would you rather...

Run with no socks or no sports bra?
No socks.  Even though I'm far from chesty, the girls need support.

Run a mile naked or in a snowsuit?
Snowsuit.  All the naked people I saw during Bay to Breakers were walking.  I'm sure certain body parts need support to make running comfortable.  And imagine the possible chafing without clothing.  And the sunburn...


Run in the freezing cold or sweltering heat?
Freezing cold.  I melt in heat.

Run with an empty stomach or a full bladder?
Gotta say empty stomach.  I absolutely could NOT keep going beyond the first mile in San Francisco without a potty break.

Run uphill or into a headwind?
Depends on the hill, and headwind :-p  If it's a shallow-ish hill, I'd run up it.  Headwinds zap my energy.

Run without music or without a GPS watch?
GPS watch.  I need my music.  Speaking of which, I still need a new pair of headphones.

Skip deodorant or Body Glide?
I rarely wear Body Glide.  I've been lucky (knock on wood) but on hot days, I do use it, just in case.

Run as much as you want on the treadmill, or only once a week outside?
Once a week outside.  I did a lot of training on the treadmill this spring, and I got cabin fever.


Run a beer mile or a color run?
I've already done a color run, and I don't like beer.

Run on a trail or the road?
For now, road, but I need to get on single tracks and gravel to prep for my next race.

Run an out and back or a loop?
I do both in training, but during a race, an out and back is tough.  All those runners heading back to the finish line when I'm still heading towards the turn-around spot...


Eat a slice of pizza mid-race of drink a milkshake?
Pizza.

Run in the rain or snow?
I've done both, and if I had to pick, snow.  There's something peaceful about it.

Beer or chocolate milk at the finish line?
Ice cold chocolate milk.

  1. I would have mostly the same answers! I think running in snow is sort of peaceful too. Especially when you are the only one out and nothing has been disturbed. It's like a winter wonderland! (I don't want to see that for a long while though...lol) -M

    1. It is a winter wonderland, and when there's no wind, it's almost perfect.

  2. That pizza looks amazing.

    I enjoy running in the rain if it's hot -- snow can be very peaceful (and sometimes really treacherous, too).

    And I don't like beer either, although I really have no desire to do a color run, either!

    1. It was amazing! I had that prior to RnR Vegas, and I ate more than I planned. I could've eaten the whole thing.

  3. I agree with you that snow is so peaceful. As long as there's no traffic or snow plows to contend with.

    1. Once it's stopped falling, and the roads are clear, it's beautiful.

    1. I warm up when I run, and being in cooler weather is great.

  5. Haha! I love that you did this. We had almost the same answers--as did most of the people who responded to my post. I guess we're all kind of cut from the same cloth. Are you considering wireless headphones? I love mine.

    1. I need to do some research on wireless headphones. If I'm going to spend that much money, I want to make sure I get a good pair.

  6. Love this! I might have to do it next week! I’m not a beer fan, either and I couldn’t run with a full bladder! Talk about torture!

    1. It was torture in San Francisco. That's all I could think of. "Where's the bathroom, where's the bathroom?!"

  7. It's fun to read all your answers....we share a lot of the same ones, especially the pizza and chocolate mile.

    1. Cold chocolate milk is a great recovery drink.
