And the nominee is...

The very sweet Jamie from, The Unlikely Competitor nominated me for the Liebster Award. 
Sooo, what exactly is that?
The Liebster Award nomination goes to those bloggers who have a following of less than 200 to promote other bloggers to comment, share and get to know each other!

The point of the Liebster Award is to answer questions, tell 11 secrets about yourself, and nominate 11 other bloggers who fit the criteria.

1. If you could get on a plane and go anywhere, where would it be and why?
Africa for a safari.  I've never been to that continent before and would love to do a safari!

2. What is one major thing you would like to accomplish in your life time?
Be completely debt free.  Is that ever possible?

3. What was your favorite class in high school or college and why?
There are three.  Civics my freshman year of high school because I loved my teacher.  She was interesting, organized and I learned a lot.  History my junior year of high school  We spent the entire second semester learning about the events in Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire".  I still remember most of it, so that obviously made an impression on me.  Advertising Design my sophomore year of college.  That class was FUN.

4. What is one thing that always makes you smile?
When my sister sends pictures of my sweet nieces.  I mean how can this picture not make you smile.
Those chunka cheeks are so cute!
5. If you were going to try a new hobby, what would you try?
Sewing.  I would love to be able to make curtains, pillows, bedspreads, etc. in the exact colors and patterns that I want.

6. What is your favorite kind of music?
Dave Matthews Band is my favorite but really I like anything that is Top 40 /Pop/Sounds fun and cheesy :)

7. What is your favorite race and why?

runDisney's Wine & Dine half marathon.  It's Disney, it's at night and you can eat & drink at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival.  As they say, it is the ultimate runner's night out!

8. If you could live anywhere for a year where would it be?
Tough question!  I guess I would have to say Barcelona, Spain.  I love that cityI would also like being able to easily travel all over Europe while I was there.

9. What made you start blogging? 
Go Girl Go was started in 2011 as a way to document my year running the different Disney races.  Now I just like documenting random things in my life.

10. If you could meet a famous person, past or present, who would it be?
Prince William & Catherine and Prince Harry.  They count as one, right?!  The Royal Family is so intriguing to me and I would love to geek out and see/learn about English history.

11. What is something you have done that you are really proud of?
I like that I have been willing to try new things.  From going to college in Florida, working in Boston, living in Alaska and now in Miami, I feel like I have been able to have a lot of unique experiences.  All of these places may be in the USA, but they are all very, very different.  It has definitely helped me figure out what kind of life will make me the happiest!

So there you have it!

Martha at Marth's So Called Life
Amanda at Rise to Run
Sarah at The Yum Diary
Tricia at Living La Vida Lum

Any suggestions for blogs you think I might be interested in?
