So today I noticed that I was tagged over at Julie's Running Blog. I'm not usually a tag/tagger type person (not even really in the myspace days), but since the ocean is flat and I don't have much to write AND I've noticed some new readers (Yippeee!) I'm excited to oblige the tag!
The tag is to tell 10 "whatever" things about yourself so here goes:
1.) In 2008 and 2009 I surfed more than probably the rest of my life. I surf 3 to 4 times a week on average (except for this winter, which has been stupid cold). It's something I'm really passionate about right now and I can see myself doing it as an old man.
2.) In 2009 I ran more regularly than I have my whole life. When there's no waves I run and while I've been "jogging" my whole life I only recently consider myself a "runner" and a beginner at that...
3.) Three things in life have changed me and shaped me more than anything else. When I was 15 my father died... when I was 21 I sailed around the world.... when I was 25 my best friend died... now I'm 32 and wondering what the next life changing event will hold for me?
4.) I hate monkeys ... don't ask.
5.) I'm right handed and left footed. Although, I can do a lot of things with my left hand just as good if not more accurately than my right hand.
6.) The sport of golf pisses me off! That is, unless we do NOT keep score and drink lots of beer... then it's a blast!
7.) I work to live.... not live to work. Money has never been the "motivator" for me, just a means of or device to accomplish the living part of life.
8.) I'm 6'6" tall.... probably 6'7" with most shoes and NO I DO NOT PLAY BASKETBALL.
9.) I'm a licensed pilot.
10.) I'm really stoked about all the races Jenny and I are planning on running this year. There's so many up for consideration that it seems like the possibilities are endless, but a few "for sure" ones are Seattle Rock n Roll Marathon, Muddy Buddy (Orlando), Bay to Breakers and many trail runs. Running is turning into a renewed passion for travel. It's fun to plan trips around running... or surfing!
Well, there you have it; 10 random things about TallGuySurfing!
I'm not really a tagger so I'm just going to invite everyone reading this to post a few wacky things about yourselves if you so feel inclined! Happy Blogging!
