My 7 Links and Fitness Friday Blog Hop

This was a tough one to complete. In fact I have been trying to figure out which post to put in each of the 7 categories for about a week.  I was tagged to post “My 7 links” by Crystal at Am I a runner of just crazy.

Most Beautiful Post:  A recent post Brain Cancer Blog –a guest spot by my husband’s Cousin Kelly.  It reminds me how precious life is and to remember to tell people you love them and hold them for the extra second in a hug.
Most Popular Post: my Self-High Five post had the most views, besides my giveaways but I don’t know if it was the most popular. I don’t really feel like any of my posts were popular.

Most Controversial Post:  I don’t really have any controversial post, but I believe that my Open Letter to Kickboxing lady could have become one very easily. It actually took me a lot of time to word it so I didn’t sound like I was attacking her or the jealous chubby chick in the back of the room. Some workout clothing should be kept indoors.
Most Helpful Post: Remembering  - this post had such positive feedback and reminded me that weight loss and running is a journey.

Post Whose Success Surprised Me:  The response to my first 10K.  I loved all the support and feedback from the blogging community.
Post That Didn’t Get the Attention it Deserved:   Bloggers are invading my dreams. Thankfully I haven’t had any more blogger dreams.

Post You are Most Proud of: My half marathon recap. I proud because I accomplished something I never thought I would even attempt.

I tag:

I joined the Fitness Friday Blog Hop a few weeks ago and I will say it is a lot of fun to check out bloggers who I might not normally cross paths with.  If you a few minutes find a couple new bloggy friends to follow.

    I love the family photo and little article on your family for the magazine. That was fun to read!

  4. Oh I am an idiot, no wonder I was a little confused, The magazine article was on another blog I had open. I am going over there now to leave the appropriate comment and hopefully not make an ass out of myself any further.

  5. Hi!
    Tamara here from the blog hop.
    I so love Fridays. Reflecting on your own blog posts sounds like a fun thing to do. Maybe someone will tag me!

  6. As a new reader of your blog it's fun to see some of your past posts. Now I'm off to check out your giveaway!

    Have a great day Jen!
