One year anniversary

A year ago I cornered the market on rum-based running blogs when I created "I Thought They Said Rum."  In honor of this important internet milestone, I present to you a modest collection of this blog's greatest hits from the past year.

The very first post:
Do Life

One of the more controversial posts:

A post that yielded some of the kindest comments I've ever received, some from strangers:

And one that yielded the nastiest:

PR in the 5k:
Elizabeth Haddon 5k (includes bonus nasty comment)

PR in the half marathon:

The lone marathon of the year:

Two posts that received little attention, which I put a lot of effort into and wish they could be published in Runner's World:

The blog's stats:

The most heavily visited posts

The most common search keywords

Visitors from around the world

And some of my favorite pictures from the year:

The aftermath of Hurricane Irene

Ocean City, June 2011

New Year's Eve

Philly Naked Bike Ride 2011

Cold and windy 17 miles makes you look like this

My dad's first marathon medal, surrounded by subsequent medals

St. Patrick's Day 2011

Thanks for reading, everyone, and I hope you stick around to see what's in store for the 2nd year of "I Thought They Said Rum."


  1. Great first year, Scott. Here's to many more. Keep on running.

  2. Congrats on your blogiversary! So glad we met and are able to run together sometimes! I'm always reading, even if I don't comment. :)
