"Would You Rather" Running Version!

"Would You Rather..."


I LOVE these kinds of posts.  Cori at OlivetoRun apparently LOVES "Would You Rather" questions and came up with a running version!  She filled out her answers and challenged her readers to write a post answering the questions as well!  Here we go!


#1. Would you rather run in a thunderstorm or a snowstorm?
I would definitely rather run in a snowstorm.  I am deathly afraid of lightning...I do anything I can to make sure I am grounded and away from any tall objects that could possibly get hit!  I also like running the cold anyway, so as long as I was well dress, I think I would be okay!
#2. Would you rather breathe through your nose or breathe through your mouth?
I would rather breath through my nose.  I hate for my lips to be chapped and breathing through my mouth makes them get chapped that much faster.
#3. Would you rather do 100 squats or 100 crunches? [Now take a break and go do them. ;)]
100 crunches.  No doubt whatsoever.  I HATE squats.  I actually hate leg workouts all-together.  I LOVE ab workouts.
#4. Would you rather have a baked good for dessert or an extra serving of your favorite entree?
Extra serving of my favorite entree.  Ask anyone, and they'll tell you I usually turn down sweets.  However, I love potatoes and cheese, so if the entree involved either of those, I would definitely go for seconds.
#5. Would you rather run on a treadmill for an hour or run around the same street block for an hour?
Around the same street.  Definitely no treadmill. I have an irrational (or maybe not so irrational...) fear of falling off a treadmill.  Street.  Any day.
#6. Would you rather have a headache during a run or a side stitch?
Side stitch.  I hate headaches.  I don't get them very often and I really dislike them.  I can deal with a side stitch.
#7. Would you rather have a rest day on a work day or a day off?
On a work day.  I'm not great about keeping up with workouts when I'm working full time (it's going to be a major struggle this summer when I'm balls to the wall at work), so I love doing workouts on my off days.
#8. Would you rather be a race director or a race volunteer?
Volunteer!  I don't know enough about races to be a director to be honest.  However, if I learned more about them, I do like to be the leader of things, so I would probably rather direct if I was comfortable with it.
#9. Would you rather spend your money on running gadgets [HRM, GPS watch, Headphones] or running shoes?
Shoes.  I've got all of the gadgets I need, but would love to have a bunch of shoes to choose from!
#10. Would you rather run in a relay or do the run portion of a distance triathlon?
I've said it time and time again to my friend that wants to do a triathlon, he can do the swimming and biking and I will run for him.  I stick to this notion.

    Now it's your turn!  Do you have a blog?  Even if not, you could answer the questions perhaps on Facebook!  Enjoy!  Also, be sure to check out Coris original post at Olive to Run
