2014 – A Year Review in Numbers

I think it’s about time to write the traditional “year in review” post. So in an effort to keep things simple, here’s our year in numbers!

9 – Weddings attended as a guest, photographed, or was a member of the wedding party.


1 – Trips to the beach.


3 – Bachelorette parties attended.

8 – Races run.

2 – New running shoes bought.

4 early miles

223 – Hours spent driving. Which translates into 9.3 days spent driving. Aka, equal to sitting in a car for 9.3 days straight. The 223 hours spent driving doesn’t even include the time we were actually at our destination!


25 – Weekends spent away from home, including any Saturday day trips.


8 1/2 – Guests hosted at our house. (The 1/2 being Henry)

4 – Gym memberships. Elite – fail. LA Fitness – fail. 10 Fitness for both of us – win!

1 – New members of the family.

    This is awesome! Do you know what kinds of things you want to keep track of at the start of the year? Like how in the world do you know hours spent driving?! lol … and I really did “lol” with the gym membership thing. Glad you guys found one that suits you!

    38: the number of countries from where I had visitors to my blog. Kinda cool, I had no idea! (This is according to my “annual report” lol)

    Happy new year Sarah!

    Oh my gosh I loved seeing all the numbers. 223 hours ina car- holy crap! I can’t handle that. I can’t believe how many weekends you were away, too. That has to take a toll on you at some point- or maybe not. I know I am looking forward to the coming months without a million things to do!

    How on earth did you keep track of all of this, Sarah! What a great was to recap your year and reflect on all of the things that are important to you – obviously coffee and running are near the top of that list. 😉

    I had to have a giggle at the coffee comment.
    That’s a lot of number crunching.
    Well I had my first dns.
    2 tough mudders
    A new 5km pb.
    A new job.
    And my youngest starting school.
    Yeah 2014 was a crazy year. Who knows what 2015 will bring.
