  1. I love SUAR, her post this week was fantastic. Thanks for the 11 things to do with race bibs, mine are sitting on the dresser gathering dust. My favorite post this week was at Breathe Through This. JP is an amazing writer, poet and ultra-marathoner. While the post isn’t about running it did strike a chord with me – http://www.breathethroughthis.com/1/post/2013/12/will-you-marry-me-again.html
