Can you believe that we are talking about the end of 2013? Crazy. Seems like just yesterday I announced that me and Tiffany were teaming up to bring you @RunThisYear with a silly video, a goal to run the year in miles… 2,013 miles that is. How did you do? I know that I will fall short this year and finish just above 1,600 miles, which is far short of my goal, but 200 miles over what I did in 2012.

But the good thing is that I took on the challenge and even though I won’t reach it, I improved upon last year and feel stronger. Who knows what 2014 will hold…


That’s right. @runninghutch and I are going out with a bang! There is a good chance that I won’t be able to play as large of a role in the @RunThisYear challenge in 2014, but will still help spread the love and participate in some of the challenges. We’re still trying to figure out what 2014 will hold for me and Tiffany, but we’d love for you to help out by taking part IN THIS FEEDBACK SURVEY (also at the bottom).


Whether you ran 2,013 miles or not, we want to celebrate every single mile you ran in 2013. It’s all about setting goals and doing your best to achieve them. We celebrate each other and this amazing community that we are fortunate enough to be a part of. Next year is right around the corner and an opportunity to set new goals. But first, let’s giveaway some free stuff. Ha.
