In keeping with yesterday’s post, today’s is looking back on 2012 but in a lighter way.  I got this idea from the awesome Glenneth at Let’s Talk and Walk.  Looking back on all of my posts this year, these are the 12 most popular based on views.  Let’s count it down!


12. Race Medal Engraving

This was my little rant about how the post-party booth engraved the wrong time on my medal at two different races.  It still gets me a little amped up thinking about it!

11. Being a Victim in Your Own Life

It does me good to reread this from time to time to remind myself to take responsibility for making my life better.  We could all benefit from taking more control over our circumstances.

10. Fun Facts Friday: Random Fact Generator

A good time waster.  I should know.

9. Fun Facts Friday: A to Z Survey

I love little survey’s like these and they are a good way for readers to get to know me better.  In fact, I think it’s about time to do another one!

8. Race Recap: 2011 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon

This was a super fun race and I would recommend it to anyone.  I didn’t have a good run that night but I did learn a lot that I can apply to future races.

7. Thoughts on the 2012 US Olympic Marathon Trials

I loved following this race because my college friend finally achieved his dream of qualifying and running in the trials.  Knowing someone in the Olympic Trials made me feel famous :)

6. 2013 Walt Disney World Half Marathon Medal

Apparently lots of people running this race were looking for what the medal would look like!

5. Benefits of Having a Treadmill at Home

A good informational post.  I’ve moved since I wrote this and I miss having it.  Luckily my townhouse complex has a pretty nice fitness center.

4. The Sub-30 Minute 5k Plan

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to follow through on this plan the way I wanted to but when I’m ready to tackle this goal I’ll be going back to this plan.

3. Weight Loss & Self Love

Everything in this post.  It’s true.

2. Clipless Pedals:  An Intro, Pros, and Cons

I’m glad this is a popular post.  I put a lot of information in it and think it really is helpful for someone who doesn’t know much about clipless pedals or is considering them.

1.  Life is Like a Moustache…

I think it’s funny that this is my most popular post of the year.  It is my all time favorite quote because its true and its funny.  I’m sure the Movember (or “No Shave November”) movement helped make this a popular one!

LOVE it Stephanie! I hope you had as much fun looking back at your top 12 as I did mine. Cannot believe 2013 is just days away! Happy New Year!

It was fun, thanks for the idea! And I can’t believe 2013 is so close either. Craziness. Hope 2013 is good to you!
