Cherry on Top

Aimee from I Tri To Be Me gave me the Cherry on Top Award! Yay!

Here are the rules:  
#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?
Answer:  What a hard question.  I (or better yet, “we”) have had a pretty great life so far, so I really can’t think of much I would change.  On top that, you have to worry about that whole Grandfather Paradox thing (the hypothetical situation if you were to travel back in time and kill your grandfather – would that cause you to no longer exist?).  Nevertheless, if I had to pick something, I would have started this whole triathlon journey sooner.  I’ve been a runner for nearly 12 years, but didn’t start doing triathlons until 3 years ago.  I don’t know what took me so long.  Along that same topic, I wish I would have joined the swim team in high school.  I ran XC mainly because I had friends on the team and you couldn’t get cut from the team.  The swim team was another “no cuts” sport, but I really didn’t know anyone on the team so I never went out for it.  I think that swimming in high school would not have only jump started my journey into triathlons, but also give me leg up on the competition.

#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.
Answer:  I did my best, but I can’t find many people who haven’t already been tagged with the Cherry on Top Award.  So, if I missed you, and you haven’t been tagged already, consider yourself tagged.  Yes, I am taking the easy way out on this one.

#3 The third and final thing is, thank the person who gave you the award.
Answer:  Aimee, thank you for the extra work award.  I love following your blog, the pictures you post of Colorado make me insanely jealous of your beautiful trails and parks.

    i’m pretty sure at the time of your posting i hadn’t yet declared that i won this award so obviously you are saying i’m not worthy. i see, i see.

    i avoided the question myself. if we didn’t have the experiences we had, we wouldn’t be who we are today. and while of course there are a few things i wouldn’t mind changing (like why can’t i win the lottery even without playing) i don’t really want to risk missing out on the good things i have now. i thought more of the ‘butterfly effect’, as i don’t have a desire to kill my grandparents, psycho. i kid i kid.

    Glad you liked the award! 🙂 I totally agree with your answer. I wish I would have “found” triathlon a lot earlier too!

    My answer, when I finally get around to answering it, will be much the same!
