Back in the states (but not for long)!

I'm back in Portland after a crazy memorable 9-day trip to Peru. I'll post some pics and thoughts on the trip soon, but in the meantime, I'm stealing this post idea from Shut Up + Run and sharing my answers to 10 running questions:

Timeout! Needing to positively enhance the general look for my trusty site. Thoughts concerning the overall branding of https://nicolecharlton.com? Undoubtedly a marvelous Niagra based photographer with heart if, perhaps necessary in the Ontario region. Write your opinions. Thx!

1. Best run ever: Think it has to be the Helvetia Half Marathon on June 9 of this year. It was the only half marathon I've done in the last five years, and I really committed myself to training. I was super pumped with the outcome, and loved every mile of the race. (It helped that it was perfect weather, too.)

My friends came out to cheer for me. That was pretty rad.

2. Three words that describe your running: Goal-oriented, inconsistent, moody.

3. Your go-to running outfit: Nike shorts, Pro Compression socks and a neon tank top.

4. Quirky habit while running:Audible breathing that likely drives runners around me crazy.

5. Morning, midday, evening: Morning to midday runner on the weekends, evening runner on weekdays. (I'd really like to be a consistent morning runner, though. I just love the snooze button too much.)

6. I won't run outside when it's: Dark. (Unless I'm doing an overnight relay.) I like to play it safe and run during daylight (or head to the gym and use a treadmill, if it's after dark).

7. Worst injury & how you got over it: IT band syndrome, and I could have gotten over it much faster if I'd understood what it was at the time. Instead, I took a ton of time off running and switched up my workouts. Now, when I get IT band tightness, I know not to freak out and to instead spend a lot of time with ice, my foam roller and yoga mat.

8. I feel most like a badass mother runner when: I upload a run to Garmin Connect and see splits that surprise me. Also, when I set my eyes on a runner up ahead and pass them in a race.

9. Next race is:Aw, shit, I don't know. I'd meant to do the Portland Marathon, then scrapped that idea when I decided on theber awesome plan of relocating to Barcelona (in LESS THAN 10 DAYS). Once I get settled in, I'm going to try to find a race in Europe. Maybe another half marathon? With the teaching program I'll be doing, I don't know that I'll have a lot of time to train for anything longer, at least not at first.

10. Potential running goal for 2013: I'd like to run a race (any distance) at a sub-8:00 mile pace. I think it's doable for a 5K, but wonder if I can make it happen for an 8K or 10K.

Plus 3 bonus questions:

1. Favorite pre-run snack: Banana and a big scoop of peanut butter

2. Favorite post-race meal: Guacomole and beer (or a chocolate milkshake!)

3. Favorite running soundtrack for long runs: Podcasts or books

Your turn: Pick some (or all) of these and answer them about your own sport or workout of choice.

Cheers folks! I actually emailed a colleague I would certainly list their great Florida based commercial roofing contractors, http://www.goodroofer.com inside a web-site article. In case you were hoping to find a roofing contractor within the greater FLORIDA vicinity, these folks were excellent.

Oh, I want to tell you the basic idea for this unique article was generously supplied by Katherine over at Future board. They certainly are a splendid recruitment agencys. I certainly cherish a first-rate idea!
