Me Stylish and Versatile? Hmmmm……

Crazy enough  I got nominated twice for the stylish and versatile blogger award.  You are supposed to write 7 things about yourself, so this meant I needed 14 things.  Then you are supposed to link back to those that nominated you.  So Jen at From Fat To Finish Line and Julie from Hotlegs Runner here is your mention, but since we all follow each other on Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Stumble Upon, Digg, Carrier Pigeon I’m not sure you are going to learn much about me that you don’t already know.  That is the beauty of having these two people as terrific friends even though we have never actually used the phone to talk or shaken hands.  They are my friends and I will do anything to help them out no matter what it is.  Thanks to you both and onto this whole stylish (does lycra and spandex count as stylish) and versatile (I do swim, bike, run, cook) thing.
1- I have SUAR stickers on my laptop and Xterra.  The Xterra is the official vehicle of Team Baha.
2- As a kid a snack consisted of saltine crackers with either butter or mayonaisse on them.
3- I don’t understand lazy.  I get being tired but I don’t get lazy.

4- I have 120 page views all time from South Korea.  Really?  What are they looking for?
5- I am a fan of Che Gueverra and want to travel to Cuba, but with our system I have to visit Adena from She Said I Need A Goal first.
6- Speaking of Adena she has a great blog post on Wednesday’s called So I Was…check it out.  Mandy from Caratunk Girl has Mutley Monday and the Athlete’s Plate comes out on Thursdays.  We are looking for somebody else to fill in Tuesday and Friday.
Any takers?
7- If my remote broke I would beg that the numbers 0, 1, 2 and 3 work or do what I had to to make sure they worked.  If they worked I would still be able to watch CNN (201), NFL (212), MLB (213), FoodTV (231), Cooking Channel (232)
8- I tend to be the happiest in the kitchen/grocery store or out training.  Those are my passions.
9- I love answering the question of ‘Are You Crazy?’ when I tell somebody that I ran x miles, or rode x miles or swam x miles and I am now eating a plant based diet.  Love it.  My response had been to try to explain it but now I say to them ‘What’s crazy is sitting on the couch eating fatty foods and knowing that I am eating my life away.  That to me is crazy.  What do you do to stay active?’
10- I need lists for everything.  I am typing this from a list.
11- I eat PB&J with sliced bananas daily (not Sat or Sun) and re-use the ziploc bags I put them in.  Those ziploc bags that don’t get re-used are in the Xterra or my backpack for later use.
12- I hate socks.  Just hate them.  I live in Texas and thankfully don’t have much need for them because it is hot here most of the time.  Today it is 23 degrees so I have socks on and don’t like them.
13- Bought a shirt before I moved to Texas that says adorkable.  I bought it to make Karen laugh and she did since this is how I used to look.

14- Proud of my sister who wants to lose 60 lbs this year.  She is well on her way with losing 5.5 lbs to date.  Go sis!!!!!

15- Because none of this blogging, training, racing, cooking, etc would be possible if it weren’t for my wife I want to say Happy Anniversary to you.  The best year of my life just passed and the best year is on the dawn of starting tomorrow.  Tomorrow we will celebrate our 1 year anniversary and I couldn’t be prouder to call you my wife, my best friend, my partner, my rock, my therapist, my love.  You are why I do what I do and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I love you.

I am supposed to nominate 15 others but there are too many people and I don’t want to leave anybody out so with that being said feel free to do this yourself and email met at jbaha14 [at] gmail [dot] com so that I can check it out.

Thank you for reading.

  5. Emily says:

    Socks are terrible. I am the girl who would wear flip flops in Vermont in the middle of December. And then I got a foot stress fracture and was banned from them for the last 4 months. This has been lifechanging in a very, very terrible way.

  6. B.o.B. says:

    I too am a list whore. And blech to socks too. I only wear em when I'm running.

    BTW – thank you for the AWESOME newbie tips. I'm going to compile them all for a post. It will be epic. lol!

  7. She said I need a goal says:

    I LOVE 14 things about you! Thank you for mentioning me in your blog (twice!!). We do need others to pick up the weekday slack!
    Yes you have to come visit, can't wait!! Seriously you should find a race in Ontario you'd like to do and I'll open up my casa for you and your lovely wife. You could meet all the local Canadian people but don’t come here in winter. Cause brrrrrr Happy anniversary to you and your lovely wife by the way and tell her to TWEET!! :-) I love socks! Can we still be friends? Amazing shirt, lmao. WTG for your sister!

  8. She said I need a goal says:

    I meant to ask, what are you using to track your stats? email me!!

  9. misszippy says:

    Ewww on that childhood snack! Look how you've evolved!

    I'm a list maker too. Nothing so satisfying as crossing items off it.

    Happy anniversary!

  10. Jen says:

    Awesome list, now I don't feel guilty that you had to do 14 because it was so enjoyable to read…. besides we all know how much you like a challenge

    PS: Happy Anniversary to you and the missus!!

  11. Julie @ Hotlegs Runner says:

    OMG, I thought I was the only one on the planet who re-used ziploc sandwich bags! Hahaha! And…I LOVE lists too. I have a list for everything! I'm gonna have my own stickers sent to me soon for review, so you'd better stick it on the team baha vehicle too, ok?! That's not a request. Haha!

    Happy anniversary to you and Karen! here's to many more years of love and laughter! =)

  12. Jason says:

    Julie your sticker will be on the Official Team Baha vehicle along with the sticker from MissZ. It's going to look like I travelled all over the place without leaving Texas.

    The shirt is hilarious. Funnier when I would actually wear it and I had my glasses on and dirty chin (stubble.)

    Adena – we will always be friends with or without socks. When I come to Canada I will bring a pair and make sure I wear them around the joint.

  13. RockStarTri says:

    Wednesday is QOTW. Making a list of things to do is typically on my list.

  14. lindsay says:

    happy anniversary!!!! that shirt is funny :)

    umm. i am the definition of lazy. haha. must be why you are the entrepreneur and i am not! really, i just feel lazy compared to things others accomplish in one day. i'm bad at being an adult…

    i am proclaiming in public that you need to become a personal chef/something like it one day.
