This week’s Tuesday Topic is a FREE topicFeel free to post any running related blog post.   Remember to link up with Kim and Zenaida!  Visit at least two of the other linked posts – the more the merrier!  Remember to come back for later linkers!

Today is a Remote Day for us.  I still have to go to school but students stay home.  Now, do YOU really think that makes sense?  Our schools are used as a polling place but still not clear as to why students stay home.  

Anyway, let’s have a little fun today.  My kids love “Would You Rather?”  Sometimes they would give me a 3rd option and I would have to explain that there is no 3rd option – they have to pick one or the other.  Let’s do this!

Would you rather…

Run with someone chatty or silent? Definitely silent.  You all know I cannot stand it when there are chatty people around me.

Run with no socks or no sports bra? Oh gosh, definitely no socks.  I cannot imagine running without a sports bra.  I am not well endowed but still need some support for the boobs.

Run a mile naked or in a snow suit? Definitely a snow suit!  

Run in the freezing cold or sweltering heat?  I dislike both of them but will pick freezing cold.

Run with an empty stomach or a full bladder?  An empty stomach because I will pee along the way with a full bladder.

Run a hilly 5K or a flat marathon?  A hilly 5k.  I’d rather “suffer” for 3 miles instead of 26. 

Run without music or without a GPS watch?  Without music.  As much as I enjoy running with it, I have also run without it and it isn’t that bad.  Does my run count if I run without my watch?  JK.  I know Kim runs a lot sans a GPS watch but I just couldn’t do it.  

Run the New York City or Boston Marathon?  The Boston Marathon!  I know both are great races but come on, Boston.

Run as much as you want on the treadmill or only once a week outside?  I do like running outside but don’t mind too much the treadmill.  I like it even more in the dangerously cold and hot weather.

Run a beer mile or a color run?  I’ve heard about both of them but think the beer mile would be more fun.  Run and drink?  Sure. 

Run on a trail or the road?  Trail.

Run in shoes that are too big or too small?  Too big.

Eat a slice of pizza mid-race or drink a milkshake?  Cheese only pizza, please.  

Run in the rain or snow?  As long as it isn’t cold then the rain.  Cold weather and rain is not a good combo for me.

Run alone or with a big group for the rest of your life?  Run alone.

Run the same outdoor route every single day or run on a treadmill every single day?  Same outdoor route. 

Have a personal chef or running coach?  A personal chef.

Get free running shoes or free race registrations for life?  Free shoes!  

Do only gentle yoga or intense boot camp classes for your cross-training?  Gentle yoga.  

Run in your favorite outfit every day but only wash it once a week or run in clean clothes that you hate every day?  Clean clothes.  I sweat so much and I stink.  I cannot imagine wearing it every day and washing it once a week.

Questions are from an article in Women’s Running.  Click HERE for the article.

Topic for next week: Your 2022 mid year review.  Feel free to write about this or any running related topic.  We hope you’ll link up with us!

  1. I’d answer many questions like you did, Zenaida! I never run with music, but running without the Garmin is unthinkable for me, ha!
    What is a colour run?

  2. Oh God, I sweat so much too. No way I could run in the same clothes every day! I’m also with you on the freezing cold (even if I don’t like that, either).I already run without music. 🙂

    Beer, no. I don’t drink.

    Many thought provoking questions — thanks for sharing this.

  3. Ha ha, for some of your questions I had a clear answer, but for some I wanted a third option! I’ll take the running coach over personal chef, the free shoes, rain, and running alone.
    I see I got a head start on next week’s topic!

  4. Very cute post, I agree with a lot of your answers but I do enjoy running with others and chatting while we run. And I don’t need my watch (except for races). I’m too clumsy to run a on a trail…

  5. These are great would you rather questions. I definitely agree with you on the no socks or no sports bra question. Just thinking about running without a sports bra makes me grimace in pain lol.

  6. What a great post! We are on the same page for most of these except, no treadmill for me, color run because I don’t like beer and I’ll take the milkshake because I think it would be refreshing but I love pizza and could probably eat it every day if I had to.
