A look back at the year on Running in a Skirt!

Running in a Skirt Top 16 of 2016

Hello! Hello!

Happy New Year’s Eve- Eve!  Instead of doing a regular end of the month post I thought I’d look back at the top posts of the year on Running in a Skirt.  If you are newer to the blog it will give you a chance to see some of the things you missed and if you have been around… here’s another look at some goodies you might want to pin before the end of the year.

I went back to my analytics to pull the NEW posts that got the most pageviews during the year!  I knew my food posts did well, but I was really surprised at how recipe heavy this list is!  Lots of goodies here.  I made the list countdown style with the most popular posts at the bottom… so keep scollin’!

Hope you enjoy some of these and I’m looking forward to sharing lots more tasty, healthy and useful posts in 2017!
