A Survey + Cold Winter Running

Hello all you wonderful people! I have a crazy busy week this week so I will keep this short and simple with as few embellishments as possible (but we need a few to keep things interesting).

Before we head to the survey I just wanted to let you all know that I completed 4.1 miles in 10° yesterday. It was chilly, but not torturous. With the addition of a scarf, I think I would have actually enjoyed it. While winter running will probably not become part of my workout routine it was nice to switch things up a bit.

I was tagged by the wonderful Emily, from sweetandbeets to complete this survey and I thought it was about time you people knew a little more about me! So here is a bunch of tidbits that I know you have been DYING to know.
