Blog posts have a way of disappearing into Internet obscurity as soon as they're replaced by newer content. Sure, the product-oriented posts receive a relatively steady stream of traffic thanks to search results. But, there's more to this running blog — and me — than the shoes in my closet (in my car's trunk, in my car's back seat, in the hall closet...).
So, why not have a post highlighting my personal favorites from the archives? Yes, I'll appear overly geeky and narcissistic. But, you probably figured I was that sort of blogger anyway.
These are not all the greatest hits, mind you. Some of them are just personal favorites that might be too obscure or abstract to garner the attention of search engines.
I am only choosing eight posts published in 2010 and 2011. Eight is enough. And, I like the idea of capping the selection pool at 2011 so that Vol. 2 can start at the beginning of 2012. (Of course there will be a Vol. 2)
So, if you have some time for a bit of good ol' fashioned blog reading, grab a beverage and click what appeals to ya!

Look at me getting all political!

It was my first marathon and the inspiration for starting this blog. Of course this fits in the best-of list
