It’s All About Me(me)!

53 and never been memed.

I have finally been memed. New blogger confession: I didn’t even know what a meme was until Claire over at Burning the Scale tagged me. At the risk of mortifying my teenagers for all eternity, I’m meming, darn it.

The way it works: In this particular meme, I tell you seven things about myself you may not know. Then I tag seven other bloggers to do likewise. You ready for this? 🙂

Facts about me:

1. I used to eat a half-gallon of ice cream a day. Every day. Seriously. For almost 10 years while I was training and racing, I craved the sugar and fat in ice cream so much that if I was out of ice cream at 11PM, I would leave the house and run down to Thrifty?s to stock up. Luckily, I got past that and today I can?t even eat a small portion without feeling like ? well ? crap.

2. I shave my legs. Yes. I have for over 25 years since I started cycling and doing triathlons. I?ll keep doing it as long as I?m fit.

3. I grew up in a small fishing village in Maine. Lived there 25 years, in fact. I worked hard to lose the accent, though.

4. My favorite book is ?Sometimes a Great Notion? by Ken Kesey. I think it is truly the great American novel.

5. I?m not a singer, but if there?s reincarnation, I want to come back as one. I once sang ?Mack the Knife? in front of 300 people in Tokyo when the first Karaoke machines were introduced. (Had no choice ? Pioneer Electronics was my triathlon sponsor).

6. I?m a big fan of the Police and am hoping to score tickets to their reunion tour this summer.

7. My latest pursuit is golf, something I never thought I’d be into. I considered it a waste of time when I was an endurance athlete; now I find that it’s a wonderful way to get out into the fresh air and meet new, interesting people. Sure is a humbling game, though.

  1. Shaving your legs in Maine is pretty bold.:)
    A half gallon of Ice cream?… that s a lot of calories. How many miles did you train each day.
