How I Lived It Up In 2010

February 2010 – Turned 43 years old but acted like I was 7


March 2010 - Mexico, baby. Dangerously close to showing the almighty crack (I seem to enjoy the squatting position):

And…I do have a fun 2011 announcement, but have to keep it under wraps just a tad longer.

Happy 2011 to you! May your bowels behave during every long run and race this year. 

I’m grateful and honored you for stuck around with SUAR in 2010 (and hopefully 2011),



  1. What a year it has been for you. I hope that 2011 is the best year ever. Boston babyyy! I have no doubt that you will be back to running pain free in no time!

      Bốn người Tiên Di tộc lập tức sắc mặt đại biến. Bốn người bọn họ lập tức nhận thấy được, trên người nam tử áo trắng này có một cỗ khí tức khiến bọn họ cảm giác run rẩy. Khí tức này, chỉ có Thuật Chú sư trên thất diệp trong tộc mới có thể có được.

      - Anh Biến…

      Một người trong bốn người Tiên Di tộc run rẩy nói. Hắn kinh hô một tiếng, không nói hai lời xoay người bỏ chạy. Ba người kia đều theo sát sau đó.

  2. You've had a great year. Lots of ups and downs. Best of luck in 2011

  3. I know what you are really doing in that squatting beach shot....looking like you are just squatting down to look at the ocean but you're really taking a piss aren't you Beth?! come on admit it...I've done this same trick...."the thinking woman" pose. hmmmm. Glad I found your blog this year and love your pictures. NOw off to watch your videos. Excited to get the DVD you are sending me. Happy New Year!

  6. Ah, is there anyone who HASN'T stuck around? With such compelling content, to say nothing of wondering when the next installment of your bowel adventures will strike, who would ever leave? Hope you have a great 2011.

  7. I LOVE LOVE your pics!! Especially the "No Dumping" one! And, you have a bobble head doll?! You ARE BIG TIME!!

  12. Happy New Year! I just joined the blogging world and I find your posts very informative and entertaining! I look forward to reviewing the old posts and look forward to following SUAR in the New Year. I agree with Jamie, no fair on keeping us waiting on a fun announcement!

  23. Wishing you a fantastic 2011 as well. I can't wait to see what adventures are to come! :)

  24. Beth - Great recap - love the pictures and I feel like I was there with you the whole time. Hopefully adding support during the stressful periods. So hoping for an injury free year for you (and me)!

    WOW - It is still pretty unbelievable that you ran with Dean . . . think about it - that was AWESOME and something you will remember for your entire life.

    Enjoy the new year - I am leaving for Colorado on Sunday, for a week of skiing . . .YAHOO! I will wave to you from the airplane!

    And for the record - the picture of you in front of the "no Dumping" sign is absolutely classic.

  26. Happy New Year! Can't wait to see what sort of trouble you get into in 2011! Oh, and the ice bath? No freakin' way - I wouldn't have had the courtesy to say "beeeeep," I'm sure!

  27. That last picture was obviously taken before Thursday!! Man is it cold now!

    Happy New Year, Beth! Can't wait to see you sporting your very own Boston medal!

  28. WOW. I started following your blog early in the year, so I already knew this stuff, but when you put it all together like this... WOW!
