Seven Links

Thanks to Kristin (one of my Healthy Living Summit roommates) for tagging me in the Seven Links post that has been going around the blogosphere.

The Goal
To unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.

The Seven Links are:
1. Most Beautiful Post
2. Most Popular Post
3. Most Controversial Post
4. Most Helpful Post
5. A Post Whose Success Surprised You
6. A Post You Feel Didn't Get the Attention it Deserved
7. Most Proud of

Most Beautiful Post
I'm taking Heather's route and going with one of the most physically beautiful filled posts. The manfriend and I's trip to the Redwoods last summer provided for so many beautiful photo ops.



Most Popular Post
Right before I chopped my hair after a vacation in Europe in 2009, I was debating my long scraggly locks. I had some cute hair in Europe and some really ugly hair, but I knew is that I needed a little change. Hence, I bring you some of my best hair days (to come).

Most Controversial Post
I'm not sure this little blog of mine creates much controversy, but I felt like I was really putting myself out there talking about what was holding me back.

Most Helpful Post
After having run a LOT of 15+ milers, I feel fairly experienced in the long run and figuring out the best fueling and recovery tactics.

The Road to Recovery is a compilation of some of my favorite post long run tactics to keep the legs from feeling thrashed the day or two after.

A Post Whose Success Surprised You
It's amazing how much response you get when you ask bloggers for their feedback. This was definitely the case when I asked for your opinions about my options for new glasses.

Oh and my Lululemon All Sport Bra Review still gets a lot of hits each month. I guess ladies out there are still looking for support for their...ahem, ladies.

A Post You Feel Didn't Get the Attention it Deserved
Hmm...that's a tough one. It would take a long time to read through all my posts over the past four years to decide. Skip!

Most Proud of
I don't think I can choose just one for this. I'm proud of my European Adventures series as I recapped our various stops along a three week backpacking trip through Europe with my friend Annie in May 2009.

These posts make me proud because it took a lot of strength and courage to travel to Europe. I'm the kind of girl who's happy staying in her comfort zone, but this, this pushed me beyond my boundaries and I'm better because of it.

And of course running 26 miles in the pouring rain without a functioning Garmin, with a hamstring issue and a huge wrap around my right thigh.

A few extras for fun:
Scariest post of 2011
The post that makes me smile
Makes me wish jean Friday
My favorite healthified comfort meal

I've been reading your blog for a LONNGGGG time because I remember almost all the posts you linked to :)
I, too, have been reading your blog for a long time as I remember these posts, too! And when I saw you were doing this, my first thought of the beuatiful post was the one about that trip you guys took as your pictures were AMAZING!

I haven't done this yet, but I was tagged a couple of days ago and plan to do my post sometime next week. I have only been reading your blog for about a year so I'll have to go back and check out some of these older posts.
Hello, Red Woods. WOW, I need to go see that!

Still can't believe how you guys ran that whole marathon in the rain (not that you had a choice, I guess, ha). Tough girls!
