A is for April Fool's Day

I wonder how many other bloggers chose the same title?

This is my first entry for the A-Z Blogging Challenge.

I remember reading through the blogs participating in this challenge last year.  I was new to blogging and feeling my way through the blogosphere.  Now it's been just about a year.  I have new friends, people who have influenced me from all over the world.  My name is better known, but more importantly, I have joined a community of like minded writers.

So here we are, April 2011.  Specifically, it is April 1st -- April Fool's Day.    In honor of the day, I have written something about myself that is completely false except for one truth.  Can you spot the true fact about me?

I was born in the early 80's in Victorville, Ca.  The middle of three children, I grew up never quite living up to the standards of my older brother, Mark. Flanked by brothers, I was always very active in sports, but though I got a few  JV letters, my only Varsity letter was for Academic Team.  

I met my husband while on a biking trip through Ireland.  We shared the love of nature and physical activity and hit it off immediately.  It was unfortunate that I injured my knee during that adventure and have since had to slow down.  The down time has given me the inspiration to write, to recapture the thrill of adventure on paper even though I couldn't experience it for myself the same way.  

I write inspirational action/adventure.  I am very active in my church and my faith features strongly in my writing.  I became a vegetarian in order to help stay lean -- I have a petite, slight build that can't handle weight well and I hate it when my butt gets bigger than my chest.  Right now I am in the middle of a green tea and leek cleansing diet and I love it.

So, most of the above biography is a load of lies -- but one fact is true.  Can you find it?

You stinker! Came here for A to Z, and I don't have a clue what's true or not.

I happen to have arrived in Ireland today. Went to Bunratty Castle and then the burial portal out in the Burren. Lovely country.

Lots of rocks and VERY narrow roads.

I probably know you better than any other bloggers, but I cannot pick out the truth. Hmmmm.

I'll be brave and pick the first one (it was between the first and second because somehow I KNEW it wasn't the third).

Happy April Fool's Day!

I think the truthful line is that you got a Varsity letter for Academic team. Do I win? :)

Great details in your writings. All are interesting so I wonder which could be the truth? Happy A to Z :)

Lindsay is correct. The rest of the post is so NOT me it was a lot of fun to write.
