Favorite Posts of 2013 And Just Those Simple Moments

It’s the last day of 2013 and so it’s time to reflect, or least pretend to. I already shared some of my 2014 goals and to dos. I even got one of them done, last weekend. Yup, no more donation bin in my closet!

So I thought it would be a nice way to wrap up with a year in review for the blog. I used Google Analytics page views to see what your favorite posts were and I thought I would share after some of my favorite 2013 moments. Not all of them had posts.

2013 Favorite Posts Based on Page Views

Favorite Moments 1

Lessons from running a marathon in the rain – Success and failures – I got enough views on this post, to warrant a letter asking me to remove watermarked race photos. Fair enough. So yea, use your imagination instead. Since it was pouring rain, I didn’t have any photos of my own and I wasn’t about to pay a small fortune per photo either.


Quinoa Chicken Stuffed Peppers – Agreed! This is one of my favorite recipes as well.


What to wear for winter Runs – All the way back from January, but it’s making a comeback just like the brutal winter.

Meet the TARC 50 Milers – One of my favorite posts that I put together. I wanted to see how others were training for their 50 miler. I loved reading all the answers.

How to find race discount codes – A 2012 post that keeps coming up on search results. Everything there still holds true. Sadly, marathons are not getting any cheaper.

Running My First “Ultra” 6 hours race – 28 (official) miles in the snow

My first Triathlon – It was a sprint, but not too shabby for a girl who learned to swim in 4 weeks

Running Tony’s first FULL marathon! The first one is always special 😉

First Marathon

Hiking Mount Washington

Hiking Bryce Canyon – And of course all the other national parks I saw that week were not too shabby either!
