My 15 running favorites of 2011

I am sitting here ringing in the new year with a glass of sangria, a Twilight Zone marathon, and some blogging (thanks to my mother in-law taking my son for the night). So I thought that this would be a great opportunity to write a top 15 list running favorites of 2011. My list includes experiences, sayings, and running gear. So here it is my top 15 of 2011!

15.  Overcoming my 3 mile wall.

14. 100 year old Fauja Singh becoming the oldest person to run a marathon. 


13. Honey Stinger Organic Energy Chews

12. Thorlo Experia Multi-Sport Mini Crew

11.  Women's RRS Cross Town Hoodie

10.  My last run of the year that ROCKED!

09. Sparkly Soul headbands

08. Inspirational Pedicures

07. The BOB Revolution 

06. Devices that are both great cameras and GPS running trackers (the galaxy nexus)

05. My pre Hurricane Irene 8 mile run.

04. Mizuno Wave Inspire 8 Osaka Women's Shoes 

03. Awesome support systems (husband, in-laws, friends, and Facebook running support groups)

02. Watching my son baby run on the treadmill and be so excited to do it (for safety he was never left unattended, the treadmill was always unplugged and the safety string was taken out and on top of the fridge when not in use).

01. Running my first half marathon (Disney Wine and Dine).


  1. Love!!! I see many more happy runner moments in your future.

  2. Thank you! I am hoping that one of those includes a crazy awesome run in your neck of the woods :)
