T.G.I.Facts (Random of course)

I am sooooooo happy that this day has arrived. I finally get a day off from running and I was able to sleep in before heading to work.

Ah, the simple things in life........

I was tagged by Marlene for one of those 10 random thing post.

So here goes.......

1) I've been working for the same company for over 38 years! This is due to transitions of departments from one company to another.

2) I would eat fried chicken every day if I could, unfortunately I haven't had fried chicken in months. We don't fry anything in our household.... sad face.....

3) I never ran in high school or college.....

4) I was a pack and a half smoker when I first started running. I would light up after each run.

5) My mother thought that running was bad for me and never truly condoned it. I would run from my house to her house for a fluid break and she would be amazed that I could run five miles one way. It must have been a mother's thing.

6) I got Sandy to start running when we first started dating and now she's going to run her first 50 mile race! Have you gotten anyone to start running?

7) My first running shoe was the Adidas Bostonian and I still have my first race T-shirt....

8) My middle name is Renard, don't ask me why?????????

9) None of my siblings run. As a matter of fact, I'm the oddity in my family in terms of staying fit.

10) I secretly watch the Food Network when I'm the only one home...........

OMG, 38 years, just shoot me...I hope it is a worthwhile pension.

LOL, a good friend of mine use to smoke during and after a run...luckily they quit.

Sandy sounds awesome, send her a hearty congrat's about running her first 50 mile race!!

Nothing like a cigarette after a run. LOL. Actually, I've heard of others doing the same, so you're not alone!

Wow, 38 years is a long time. I've been at the same company for 20 years now and I thought THAT was long

Marlene said...

- lighting up a cigarette after running... WOW!

- at least your FIRST name isn't Renard!

I am amazed that you must hide both your running and your Food Network fascination from family, Kenneth Renard.
