First, I have to thank Rae of 5k Rae for the Cherry on Top award:
1. Answer this question: If you had the chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you and what would it be?
I know this is a cliche answer, but I wouldn't change a thing. I feel really blessed to be living the life I am and I am thankful for all the wonderful people I've had the pleasure of knowing, the experiences that have shaped me into who I am, and the discoveries I've made about myself and what's important to me along the way.
2. The second thing you have to do is, pick 6 people and give them this award. You then have to inform the person that they have gotten this award.
I have decided to give this award to a few bloggers who have been particularly inspirational to me as I started this little 'project'. In no particular order....
1) Jess at See How She Runs
2) Kyle at Getting Better and Better
3) Fatty Blogsticks
4) Clyde at The Clydesdale Project
5) Ali at The scales say what?!
6) Dawne at It's My Time
3. The third and final thing is, thank the person who gave you the award.
Thank you, thank you, Rae! I first landed on your blog because we share the same name (there are so few of us female Raes!), lo and behold, you have truly inspired me in my running. Thanks again!
Second, I was awarded the Happy 101 award from Joy at Nuggets of Truth:
1. Post who gave you this award

2. State 10 things you like
1) boston terriers
2) live concerts
3) bubble tea
4) creating things: knitting, quilts, painting, crafts
5) hockey (Go Leafs!)
6) making lists
7) early mornings
8) winter: snowboarding, skiing, skating, warming up by the fire!
10) RUNNING! Yes - I can actually say that with a straight face now. ;)
3. Give this award to 10 other bloggers and notify them with a comment
1) Little Lotta at A Lot of Lotta
2) Juli at Juli's Journey
3) Leah at Obliteration of the Fat Girl
4) Little Fruit Fly in Rainbow Colored Socks
5) Maureen at Mo Sho Runs
6) Lindsay at Thinspiration
7) J at For Real, This Time!
8) Katie at Freaking Awesome Body
