Amanda over at Miss Zippy does her Year of Running every year and I have added my two cents worth into for a couple of years now. This post is how I kick off my end of year reflections, which culminates in my 2014 in review post.
Without further ado, here is my contribution to the:
Year of Running 2014
It’s that time again–time to look back at how your year of running has gone. I’ve done this post the past three years and each year, the response has grown, so I’m excited to get it rolling again. How you play along:

Best race experience?
Yes, he is pain-in-the-ass to run with at times and I have kissed dirt because of him, but I wouldn't trade him for any other running partner. Bennie pulls (not pushes) me to do more running than I would otherwise and his runs are almost always a Fartlek run.
Best new piece of gear? I could talk about a particular pair of running shoes, but to this point no particular pair of shoes has WOW'ed me into thinking they are the greatest thing since whatever it was last time. I have been unimpressed with my GPS gear, headphones, etc. and while I love my iPhone and MacBook Pro I don't run in or with them - they are accessories, so that pretty much leaves me with clothes or outerwear.
I would have to say my Saucony running mittens that I got last week at TJ Maxx. I have looked for a pair of running mittens, since my Moss Brown Gore-tex mitten shells wore out a few years ago (I bought them in 1982 - so I got my money's worth out of them). The Saucony mittens have done everything I wanted or expected from them.
Best piece of running advice you received?
Most inspirational runner?
If you could sum up your year in a couple of words, what would they be?
Now it’s your turn!
