I've been wanting to do a blogger Q&A for a while now. The question was who would be my first ever interviewee, reach out to a pro runner? reach out to a well know coach? There were lots of options. When I sat down and thought about it, the decsision was very simple. Have my first Q&A with the one person who inspired me to start running, still inspires me each and every day, and untimately drives the determination in me to get out there every day.
My wonderful Fiance!!
This is an amazing woman who battles adversity day in and day out with life, kids, dealing with me :), running, and weight maintenance. I wont go into details about her journey, that is her information to share in her circles, but she started Weight Watchers late last year and has lost A TON of weight. The transformation has been unspeakable, I'm sure my words here dont due all her hard work any justice, and I truly do look on in awe at what she has been able to accomplish in such a short time. Through her journey she has met some wonderful supporters, and more importantly inspired many people to either take up running or take up weight loss based on the changes they have seen in here.
So here is my very first blogger Q&A with Mrs. Running Schlub:
What was your best run ever?
Just this past Sunday, I included some of our church music into my song list and it turned out to be extremely thereputic. My run had nothing to do with speed, nothing to do with my body, it just felt very thereputic and I felt like I was in a really good place.
No real injuries thus far, but it was reall rough when my muscles were sore after my first half marathon. The soreness really came on about 3 days after the race and lasted for 3 days before I was recovered.
You felt most like a badass runner when.....
I crossed the finish line at the Lost Dutchman 10K. My time was 1h 7m which was a PR and that run had so many hills, you had to be a badass just to finish that race without walking.
Rapid Fire Questions:

September 11, 2013, simple neighborhood run (BTW for readers, this is The Running Schlubs birthday LOL)

So there you have it, my very first blogger Q&A with an amazingly inspirational woman who has made such a positive impact on my life.
Who inspired you to start running? Who gets you lacing up your shoes and pounding out miles each day even when your tired and lazy?
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
