(B) Bed Size: King size and LOVE IT!!

(C) Chore You Hate: Cleaning the bathroom

(D) Dogs?: My children have 2 dogs who live with us.  I don’t like them much because I am allergic – get horrid rash on my skin if I touch them or they touch me.

(E) Essential Start Your Day Item: Tea in my very large tea-mug

(F) Favorite Color: Orange

(G) Gold or Silver?: Silver or White gold.

(P) Pet Peeve: Bad Drivers.

(Q) Quote from a Movie:  “Maybe other people don't see what we see.” The Last Mimzy

(R) Right or Left Handed?: Right

(S) Siblings: My younger brother died 22 years ago.

(T) Time You Wake Up?: 4.45am to run during the week,  Saturday run 6am, and Sunday anything from 3.45am if I’m doing a race to 6am if it is a recovery run.

(U) Underwear: Too much information sharing.

(V) Vegetable You Dislike: I don’t like broccoli, cauliflower and brussel sprouts

(W) What Makes You Run Late: Very little, I will rather be early than late so will take my kindle to read if I’m way early.

(X) X-Rays You've Had Done: None, don’t do doctors or hospitals easily.

(Y) Yummy Food You Make: I love baking. Cooking I do, but I don’t love it like I love baking.  I’m known for my lemon meringue pie, my carrot cake and my home-baked muesli.

(Z) Zoo, Favorite Animal: Giraffe is my favourite animal in the wild, I like watching monkeys in the zoo.

That’s my ABC, I’m now passing it on.  I might need to post it to many more people, but I’ve chosed to hand it on to blogs that I’ve recently discovered.

Marcia over at The Studly Runner. She’s run 2 marathons and qualified for Boston – a huge achievement!!!

Claire at TakeTwo, a fellow barefoot runner

Alida from Seize the Chocolate, another barefoot runner, this time in South Africa and

Karien also a South African, over at Running the Race.

If you don’t get tagged with the ABC’s, just do it anyway, it’s fun.
