Play along and leave one of your answers in the comments! 


  1. Anna?? Have the twins seen Frozen? That would be my guess! Also, I'm totally creeping on your blog right now. I'm always looking for Run Motivation!

  2. Haha Megan, others have suggested that. They've really only seen it once, last year, and they were more interested in playing with their toys! Quinn will also say my name (well, "Yorn-nen") if prompted but hasn't really made the connection that that's my name! To be fair, though, she calls Dexter "Chachi" and no one has any clue where that came from, so I suppose Anna is fairly tame 🙂

    And my blog is definitely a new work-in-progress, but I am excited to build it! I love the community of runners I have found and many of them blog too – I will get a blogroll up soon!
