Versatile Blogger Award

Jill (@ Run with Jill) tagged me with the versatile blogger award on Friday.

Here are the rules of this award:
  1. Thanks and link back to the person who gave you the award.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass the award to other bloggers.
My answers:
  1. Thank you Jill.  Her great twice-a-week blog with her trials and adventures as she trains for her 500th marathon, and her 50-miler, her children, and her running friends and her struggle to get insurance ... (you get the picture it's a blog) ... is located at Run with Jill (http://runwithjill.blogspot.com/) She's also my running mentor and go-to source for training questions.
  2. Seven things about me:
    1. I believe that we can become better people by examining ourselves, our actions and motivations and working on them.
    2. I believe that if we do not challenge ourselves, life will challenge us in very uncomfortable ways.
    3. I am having a fantastic time running at my limits.
    4. I am looking at selling my company and moving into another company as COO or President.
    5. I believe these viral awards are great for filling a blog post when you don't want to talk about your training!
    6. I have 10 random things about me here.
    7. I believe that desire beats technology every day of the week.
  3. Other versatile bloggers I like to read:
    1. Lisa (@ Chasin' Bunnies)
    2. The Green Girl (@ The Journey of a Running Green Girl)
    3. Termite (@ The Hungry Termite)
    4. Goose (@ The Whole Half)

I'll have a review of two Steve Prefontaine movies in tomorrow's post!

Jill blogs twice a week? Or is it biweekly? I vote for moving to another company as president!

Julie said...

:) I love posts like this! I totally agree with #1!

Oh, and I am a big Jill fan too:)

Have a great week Andrew!

Lisa said...

Thanks for the nomination. It's fun to learn more about our fellow bloggers. I agree with #7 and would add that desire can even overcome shortcomings. :-)

you should sell your company to the company where you become COO. Just an idea.

Christina said...

And I totally agree with you on #2.

Thank you for the nomination!

I hope you get lots and lots of $$ from your selling your company. You'll need it with all those taxes Canadians pay. Good luck!

Johann said...

Great list! I can relate to all 7. Although I don't have a company to sell I've got some fantastic options and must make changes soon.

Hmmm...love #2.

Molly said...

I agree with always challenging yourself, gotta keep it interesting!!!

Yes. they fill space but they are always interesting to me. Like your consideration of selling your bus. and working for another company--interesting dilemma full of pros and cons!
