The most read post this month was our group review of Nyad on Netflix. It was a sickly weekend but a lovely one with Sarah and me visiting Catherine in Boston. We recommend the movie and we also recommend catching up with old friends over Middle Eastern food, throat lozenges, walks around Walden Pond, and meeting new babies for the first time…New England autumn is awfully lovely.
Alison Conway ran the NYC marathon and then blogged about it for us. Her post which touched on running, but also on the subway and community and connections, was the second most read post in November. Did you miss it? You should go read it!
Tracy’s 2013 (!) post The Shape of an Athlete is also on the theme of the diversity of athletic bodies and it’s still rocking along, this month as our fourth most read post.
I think Christine’s post on finishing 2023 soft struck a note with many of us around the blog. I loved it. I needed. Thanks Christine. It’s a great message. And it was the fifth most read post in November.
This month’s top ten list is a mixture of the old and the new. Tracy’s post on the Shape of an Athlete, and Cate’s post on menstruating at 53, are perennial faves. Ditto for the NYT 6-minute workout commentary and the yoga poses Catherine simply can’t do (which is still true, btw). And, of course, Tracy’s post on Why diet culture harms us.
New top tens just out this month include #4, 5, 6, 8 and 9. You might check them out if you missed them.
What’s new for November? Well, stay tuned and see…
Catherine wrote about the Dalai Lama sticking his tongue out. She was writing about mediation but I guess people searching key terms related to the recent controversy found her post. This was our most read post in April.
This is list is striking for two things. So many of the posts are from years past! I also love how many are written by guests. If you’d like to join our community of occasional guest bloggers read this post.
Lots of our most read posts in 2022 were written in years past. Earlier today I posted a list of the most read posts. But I’m always curious about which posts written in 2022 were read the most. Here’s that list:
