Blood & (NotSoMuch) Guts

No running yesterday...I gave blood again. Apparently my body doesn't like me doing this and makes me see spots and get dizzy afterwards...but I'm still determined to make it work. Since the flu season is upon us, healthy donors are needed more than ever, and I wanted to do my part. Trust me, I hate needles (and the thought of them make me queasy), but I can do it, and so you can too. For more information and to find a donation center near you, please check out You never know who you could be helping. :)

To go along with my non-running post, I just want to thank Kerrie from Mom vs. Marathon for the shout out yesterday! She tagged me in her new series Thank You Thursday and so I want to show her some love. You should check out her blog because she's a tough running mama with an adorable running buddy, doggies and a supportive Mr. ;) Oh, and she's kicking some butt on the mileage front too!

So here's what I have to do:
The rules are to use only one word to answer the questions below, then pass it on to six fellow bloggers and tell them you did so.
