Everything You Never Wanted to Know About Rae

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Mike at Running Around the Bend nominated me for yet another Liebster award (you can see my other posts here, here, and here).  And then the lovely Sarah of Healthy Simple Smart tagged me to answer the “I Mustache You a Question” thing that’s going around.  And then this week, Lauren, aka “Salt” at Run Salt Run nominated me for another Liebster!  I’m feeling so much love!  If you don’t follow these excellent people yet, you really should.  They are all very thoughtful, kind, supportive people, in addition to being badass runners.



Since I’ve been Liebster-ed several times, and since pretty much everyone I follow has been nominated at least once, I’m going to forgo any further tagging and just subject you to more useless facts about myself.  P.S. I will not be offended if you don’t read all this junk.  I wouldn’t either.

4 things I’m always saying:

And that concludes another round of “Useless Facts About Rae.”  We hope you’ve enjoyed.

        haha – can totally understand it!

        Just catching up on the older Liebsters, didn’t realize Martian Chronicles was ‘new to you’ this year … great book! I already forced a bunch of this stuff on my boys (not hard considering how they read!).

    I am so happy to hear you are a fellow Doctor Who fan! Karebear has followed me around since birth… it’s rather unfortunate. The coolest place I’ve ever been was this tiny little town in Northern Ireland for this week long music festival. It wasn’t like Bonnaroo middle of a field style but more like jazz fest on steroids with everyone who lived there off from work that week! Such a blast 🙂

    H2O-town represent! 🙂
    The coolest place I’ve ever been? Man, it’s hard to choose. Probably Yorkshire, for the gorgeous countryside, the perfect accents, and the family ties.
    The nickname that gets said most often is probably Lil’ D. It’s was my nickname from my work softball team (smallest person on the team!) and it sort of stuck and is now my work nickname. I guess it could be worse 🙂
