Wow, it’s been an awesome year for my little blog! I feel like I’ve gotten so much out of my home on the Internet — having met so many new people through this community.

It’s been amazing having the support of my  readers and friends as I experimented with Crossfit, trained for many marathons, traveled to Africa, and bared my heart about personal things throughout the year.

Many people ask me how I have time or energy to keep the blog up. But, for me, it’s therapuetic and fun! It makes me happy to be able to write in a place people will actually read it and give me thoughtful feedback.

I believe I truly came to LOVE running after I started this blog. I found so many like-minded people and gained motivation, inspiration and ambition through them! And I never would have found Crossfit without this! Many people influenced my decision to try this awesome sport and I’m so glad I did!

I wanted to share with you my most popular posts of the year. Some were a big surprise to me. I wrote the Jennifer Lawrence post on a whim in about 20 minutes one random Friday afternoon but it has generated so much discussion! Same with the “Blame it on the Alcohol” post. It goes to show you that being real with your readers can go a long way. Hope you’ll take a look at those you’ve not seen yet!
