Its hard to believe that there’s only two and a half weeks left in 2015! If you read my 2015: Year of Running post last week then you already know that I decided to get a head start on my year end recaps this year. With the baby potentially arriving any day now, I’m taking advantage of the extra time that I’m spending relaxing on the couch after work to get ahead on some of these posts, since as you moms know once my little guy arrives my blogging time will become quite limited.
I had a lot of fun looking at my blog stats at the end of 2014 and reviewing some of my most popular posts, so I thought it would be fun to do the same again this year. Other than my giveaway posts, my most popular posts from this past year were:
So many of you were excited to find out Baby Thayer’s gender and made your predictions on the post that I wrote right before Preston and I left for Florida for our combined gender reveal/babymoon trip. It meant a lot to have so many of you share in the excitement of finding out that we’re expecting a baby boy.
The day after I shared our baby announcement here on the blog, I answered some of the questions that many of you asked, particularly how my pregnancy would affect my fitness.
Given that my one month Shakeology reflection was my most read post in 2014, I’m not surprised that my follow up post was one of my top five posts of 2015. I continue to drink Shakeology on a daily basis, and attribute the health benefits of it as part of why I’ve been able to maintain a fit pregnancy.
Maintaining a fit pregnancy has been anything but easy, but I know that the benefits of doing so will not only benefit myself but also my unborn son long after he is born. Some days have been easier than others, but looking back I’ve accomplished quite a bit while pregnant, including running two half marathons. Some days I still can’t believe that I ran/walked Rock ‘n’ Roll Philly at 32 weeks pregnant.
As I shared in my Year of Running recap, running Shamrock back in March was by far the best and most memorable race experience of the year. Not only did I PR by almost 11 minutes, but I was able to share in the PR celebrations with Preston as well as a number of friends who also ran the race. I can’t wait to return to Shamrock one day in the future.
