Allison from The Running Princess nominated me for a Liebster Award!
What is a Liebster Award?
It’s basically a great way to connect with other bloggers and then like-wise give a little blog love to those whose work you enjoy reading.
It’s pretty straightforward:
The questions I got from The Running Princess are as follows:
Three words to describe your blog:
Fitness, Fashion, and Fitness-fashion! Or…”The Right Fits.”
What would you name your boat if you had one?
I always love it when dogs and cats have people names, like Matilda or George or Brian. So I feel like the same would apply to a boat, so let’s go with Steve. Steve the Boat.
Determined. Loyal. Reliable. Trustworthy. Empathetic.
I’ve started reading “The Coolest Race on Earth” about the Antarctica Marathon. I probably should have read it before I registered, eh? Ha!
I’m a sucker for corny puns…One of my favorite instagram accounts is “El Arroyo,” a Mexican restaurant I believe in Texas, that has the best signs. They make me smile every time.
Does anyone remember when everyone on Facebook put up a picture of their Doppelgänger? (Facebook used to be so fun, didn’t it?)
That was like 8 years ago and mine was Kate Hudson, but as I age I think that resemblance fades. But I’ll pick her, just because she’s into fitness and blond. This is make-believe, remember?
On my run this past Sunday with my friend Nordica, she filled me in on a bit of a controversy about this post and this post. It’s interesting to hear different perspectives. My friend Nordica always has the scoop on this sort of stuff.
Positive motto for 2018?
“In a world where you can be anything, be kind.”
It’s too easy to get caught up in my own stuff and be short with people or forget to tell them how much they mean to me. My personal “love language” is words of affirmation, so I want to ensure I am giving out the same words I want to receive.
I really want to focus on being kind ALL THE TIME. When I start thinking snarky thoughts, I will try my best to remember to be kind.
Your top tip for finding blog-spiration?
I’m going to have to copy Allison here and say engage. The more I have engaged with the rest of the blogging community through link-ups, meet-ups, shared post ideas (like the one I did with Allison about the differences between running in the US and the UK!) the more I enjoy this blogging hobby of mine.
What inspired you to start your blog?
I actually started the blog with my younger sister with the intentions of it being primarily a fashion blog (hence the name, “The Right Fits”); however, after she decided not to continue with me, it really became just a running/fitness blog, but I stuck with the name. I wanted to share my running journey and connect with like-minded people along the way.
If you had a theme tune, what song would you pick and why?
Can I be honest and admit I love the new Justin Timberlake song, “Filthy”? I’m a sucker for JT…But that wouldn’t be my theme song; I’ll go with “Dogs Days are Over” from 2010 as a running song, “Run Fast for your mother, run fast for your father!”
Where is your happy place?
Taking a shower after an awesome morning run…..I feel so accomplished and ready to take on the day!
I am a terrible singer but I love singing and karaoke…I just wish I was actually decent at it!
It would be great to qualify for Boston again. I’d also like to successfully run the Antarctica Marathon!
I will keep things easy and only add one more question. Feel free to answer as many or as few as you want!
My question: How has your perspective on running/fitness changed since you first started?
Hope to hear from some of you!
Stopping by after seeing your blog on Kooky Runner-look forward to connecting!
Thanks for stopping by, looking forward to following along with your blog too!
Great answers! Definitely with you on the post-run shower – they are awesome!
I’ll answer your question here. My perspective has changed in that when I first started I thought running more than 5k was for the super-fit and waaaay out of my league. Given that marathon no11 is happening in April, I’d say my thinking is a little different now!
WOW- marathon 11! That’s awesome Allison!
Thanks for nominating me, this was fun 🙂
You’re welcome. It’s fun reading these posts too.
