Alright, now I need to pass this torch on to 6 bloggers. It's so hard to narrow this down to 6 other bloggers of ALL the ones I read, but these are the ones I choose:

Kelsalynn over at Kelsalynnfitblog - Love her blog. She's super tough (don't mess with her) and her and her hubby are working their way to living debt free! She's very motivating!

Jess over at Run Girl Run - Love reading this girl's blog! She posts about everything and anything - work, running, sports!, running, did I mention running?

Leana over at RunnerLeana - This girl is training for Ironman Canada in 2010 and is pretty much a rockstar! Sometimes I wonder how she squeezes in all her training sessions! Totally inspirational!

Jess over at 21 Days - This lovely lady just had a beautiful baby girl and is back at running. I love reading her blog!

Amanda over at Run to the Finish - She is super positive, always trying something new, and handing out giveaways! One of my favorite things - her daily Gratitude Journal!

Danielle over at From 5K to Marathon - She's another teacher and training for the Nike Women's Marathon in October! Pretty impressive!

Thanks again, Kelly, for the tag!

On a completely different side note, I need to vent for just a sec. Do I ever mention how much I love my job? It's been one of those weeks, and it's only Tuesday. Let's just say that in the midst of dealing with "behaviors" when I should have been enjoying my lunch break, I was spit in the face by an elementary student. That's okay that I missed my lunch then, because I kind of lost my appetite. And I am supposed to try and stay germ free to prevent any ilnesses? right. I work in a building that is full of germs-spreading species!
Oh well, tomorrow is another day, and I know that it will be complete different from today. Everyday is a new day; new surprises, new challenges, and new laughes. I love my job, despite the challenges and difficult situations!

Kelly said...

I hear you on missed lunch and way too many germs! I definitely have days where I'm like- boy do I hate my job!

Marlene said...

I love reading these little questionnaires. It's a fun way to get to know you better. Some things I knew, some things I didn't.

I hope tomorrow is a better day at school! ICK!

Fun tag. Sorry about the student spitting on you. I would have lost my appitite too. Hope you have a better day today.

J said...

That is a fun list! Hopefully today will be better for you! We all have those days! I deal with "germ spreading 20 and 30 year olds" everyday and they are supposed to be mature but i am in engineering so i guess that doesn't always happen!

Anne said...

Yikes. That's one weight-loss method I think I'll avoid. It must be so hard some days to be a special ed teacher.

Scott McMurtrey said...

Vegas makes me weep too.

Oh, Vegas, why are you such a difficult love?

Jess said...

Thanks! But man alive, that's gonna be a toughie! I'll have to think on my answers...
