Bears, Snakes and ABCs

February 23, 2011

This morning I woke up from a dream where a black bear was holding me down while a rattlesnake attacked me. When the alarm went off I was so involved in the dream that I didn’t think I could move my arm from under the bear to turn it off. Needless to say I was a little out of it.

I got through my 8 mile tempo run with the help of a Vanilla Bean GU, but I was definitely tired!



At the mall the other day I was thinking about buying a jean-like button down shirt. But then I remembered I have this tunic which works perfectly. Moral of the story: shop your closet first!

Second moral of the story: I need a haircut.



It feels like forever since I’ve had my Chia Banana Oatmeal with Sunflower Butter. I welcomed it back with an open mouth.


I’ve seen this ABC questionnaire on some other blogs and love finding out random facts about people so I couldn’t wait to do it myself! Enjoy getting to know my weird self a little better.

A.   Age: 23

B.    Bed size: Queen. My parents gave me their old mattress. But I only sleep on one little side of it.

C.   Chore you hate: Cleaning my toilet and bathroom floor. And taking out the trash & recycling when it’s really cold.

D.   Dogs: My awesome puppy Ceili (Kay-lee) was put down about a year ago because she had cancer. I want another!

E.    Essential start to your day: During the week, exercise! I love getting in a good workout before a long day.

F.  Favorite color: Kelly Green.

G.  Gold or silver: Gold usually, but I mix both in my jewelry.

H.  Height: 5’6 1/2.

I.   Instruments you play: Currently I just play the harp. I played the piano until college. I also started out Irish music on the tin whistle and had a brief period of accordian playing. Yeah.

J.   Job title: Product Coordinator

K.  Kids: None at the moment. But hope to have some later!

L.  Live: St. Louis, Missouri. Same house my whole life!

M. Mom’s name: Marianne.

N.  Nicknames: Stoonball, Stoons, Cbrad, Bear

O.  Overnight hospital stays: None!

P.  Pet peeve: When people wait until their car is completely backed out of a parking spot or driveway to start turning the wheel, and then they get stuck and have to readjust like 12 times. Also when people don’t use adverbs.

Q.  Quote from a movie: I am REALLY bad at movie quoting. But I probably quote Stepbrothers the most thanks to Alex. “SO MUCH room for activities!” “I didn’t want salmon!”

R.  Righty or Lefty: Righty.

S.   Siblings: Two brothers. John is 26, Kevin is 21.

T.   Time you wake up: Between 5:50 and 6:10 am on Weekdays. I can usually make it until 8 or 9  on weekends.

U.   Underwear: A variety.

V.    Vegetables you dislike: Creamed spinach…that’s all I can think of! Cooked carrots aren’t my favorite.

W.   What makes you run late: Reading blogs.

X.    X-rays you’ve had: CatScan when I broke my neck. A bunch at the dentist.

Y.    Yummy food you make: My breakfasts! And cookies!

Z.     Zoo animal favorite: Umm…giraffes? My grandma adopted a giraffe at our zoo and Alex and I saw some up-close in Cincinnati!  

  • Pick one of these questions and answer it for me!

Of interest: What is the best time to exercise from
