seven links.

I have been dying for someone to tag me for a “My Seven Links” post.  I was ready to just do it without being tagged (at least, I hadn’t been that I’m aware of – if you tagged me and I didn’t see it, my apologies!).  Thanks to Kayla for picking me!

most beautiful.

This was a tough one for me.  The vast majority of the blogs I’ve seen do this have had some big event in their life, along the lines of engagement, wedding, or birth of a baby to link for this one.  I have none of those.  What I kept coming back to, though, was a tribute to my beautiful Grandma on the day she turned ninety.  I am blessed to have a woman like her in my life.

most popular.

In March, I traveled to Washington DC to convene with a bunch of other bloggers for the National Half Marathon (or for the more hardcore of the bunch, the full marathon).  At 2:30:54, I just barely missed my goal of finishing in under two and a half hours.  The race recap for my first half marathon continues to be the most popular.

most controversial.

Yeah.  I’ve got nothing for this one.  By nature, I’m not a controversial person (at least, I don’t think I am) and I try to keep the blog drama free.  So far, so good!

most helpful.

In November 2010, I wrote about the reasons why I’m a vegetarian.  At that point, it had been about nine months since going veg, but it really forced me to sit down and truly frame into words why I made the choice I did which is something I had struggled with until that point.  I knew that I wanted to adapt to that lifestyle, but I could never adequately explain my logic.  Looking back on that post, I almost feel like I could do a new version, now that I’ve had more time to think, research, and live without eating animals.

not enough attention.

Last summer, Caitlin was preparing to release her first book, Operation Beautiful, and invited readers to write on the topic of change the way you see, not the way you look.  I was thrilled to be a part of that week and wrote about my struggles with a positive body image.  It was something I lacked for a long time and as I grew older, realized that it’s not just about appearance, but taking pride in your whole self.  I really loved my post for that series.

surprise success.

I made vegan banana bread muffins on a whim and it’s a recipe that continues to get a lot of traffic.  I’m not one for posting a ton of recipes since I don’t actually come up with a lot of them, but I was quite pleased with the success of these little guys!

most proud.

My first ever 5k, I finished in 42+ minutes.  Ever since that race, my goal was to cross the finish line in under 30 minutes.  In March 2011, I didn’t think I had it in me, but I finished the Irish Jig in 29:39, crossing one off the bucket list.  It was a hard race because I’m not naturally speedy and holding that pace for three miles was a challenge, especially in the cold Michigan winter weather.  Once I crossed that finish line and knew my time, I was beyond proud of myself!

your turn!

Honestly, now that this meme has been going around for a bit, a lot of people have already done it and I’ve really lost track of who has or hasn’t done it.  So, if you haven’t, I tag YOU!  Now, go!
