Would You Rather

I've been branching out to read more running specific blogs. One of my new favorites is Olive to Run. She posted this "Would You Rather Running Style Survey" post and invited others to do the same and then share their links. Here's mine:

#1. Would you rather run in a thunderstorm or a snowstorm? 
I am happily acclimated to Florida, so I'd pick thunderstorm. I've run in the rain several times this week and it's actually refreshing.
After my first rainy run this summer, it was hot too!

#2. Would you rather breathe through your nose or breathe through your mouth?
I try to breathe through my nose unless I'm stuffy or really working hard!

#3. Would you rather do 100 squats or 100 crunches? [Now take a break and go do them. ;)]
Crunches, hands down. Which means I should be doing the squats :)

#4. Would you rather have a baked good for dessert or an extra serving of your favorite entree?
I like to indulge my sweet tooth, so I'd pick dessert. I usually eat oats with berries for dessert every day.

Oats! I usually mix in cinnamon and either protein powder, canned pumpkin, nut butter or powdered peanut butter and top with strawberries and/or blueberries. Sometimes raspberries or apples, too!

#5. Would you rather run on a treadmill for an hour or run around the same street block for an hour?
The same street block, at least there's a chance to see new people/animals that way!

#6. Would you rather have a headache during a run or a side stitch?
I had a side stitch during more than half of my half marathon and it was miserable, but I've never run with a headache so it's hard to say.

#7. Would you rather have a rest day on a work day or a day off?
I like my rest days on work days.

#8. Would you rather be a race director or a race volunteer?
I'd say volunteer. I really enjoyed interacting with the volunteers at my race.

#9. Would you rather spend your money on running gadgets [HRM, GPS watch, Headphones] or running shoes?
Shoes! I have most of the gadgets I want but I will always need more shoes.

New shoes! 

#10. Would you rather run in a relay or do the run portion of a distance triathlon?
This is a tough one, they both sound fun! I think I'd like to try a relay first.
