State Of The Union Address, Where By Union I Mean This Blog

Hello, humans! I hope you don’t mind if we take a brief moment to talk a bit of blog shop. Since Fairest Run Of All transitioned from Blogger to WordPress last month, there have been a LOT of changes. Some you almost certainly noticed (especially the part where it was down for a week and a half ūü§™), some you probably didn’t. In either case, let me bring you up to speed. A lot of FROA ported over to the new platform without a hitch – and a lot of it didn’t. Yay! Some notable hiccups included broken links,...

In Which Jenn Picks Her Very Favorite Posts

Hey guys! As of a couple weeks ago, this little blog (it’s called The Fairest Run Of All, but you can always glance up at the header if you forget again) turned eight years old. This isn’t as big a deal as the sort of anniversary that has a five on the end of it, but not bad, right? A good run so far. We’ve racked up a heckuva lot of posts over the years, and I figured this would be as good a time as any to comb through the archives and put together a list of my...

Introducing The Fairest Run Of All On Instagram

Lemme rip the bandaid off: after almost eight years, I finally got around to starting an Instagram account expressly for this blog. Under normal circumstances, I despise being late. So this is tough for me. Okay, in my defense, “finally got around to” is not strictly accurate. I’ve been thinking about this for a while. Years, even. I love scrolling through Disney Instagram and looking at all the awesome pictures of awesome people enjoying the parks. And there are tons of accounts doing it. Tons! So many I thought: I’m just a little blog. I can’t compete. It’s already...

In Which This Is Jenn’s One Thousandth Blog Post

I stopped celebrating this blog’s birthday a couple years in (it’s in July, if you’re wondering, and we’re currently over seven years on). After a while, with no 5 or 0 on the end of the number, it felt kinda redundant. But something about 1,000 posts feels like it warrants some mention, so here we are. This is my one thousandth post! You’re reading it right now! I would like to thank: my brain, for refusing to stop thinking and rethinking things until I exorcise them by writing them down my body, for letting me continue to run and...

In Which Jenn Is Back! … Well, Pre-Back

Yooo! I couldn’t let the whole of May go by without a single post. I didn’t mean to take a blog break at all, really. But it was so easy to let slip – we were moving into a new, permanent place in Puerto Rico, and I was settling into teleworking, and also I’m planning a wedding which as it turns out is like half a job in and of itself… These are all excuses, of course. If you don’t post to the blog for a week, it’s easier not to the next week, etc. But I don’t want...

In Which Jenn Makes A Contingency Plan: Trip Reports & Race Recaps

Heeeey! So like I alluded to earlier, I am in the midst of a very big move. I don’t anticipate any real lapse in service (this blog provides a service, right?) but I do want to provide for all possible eventualities. With that in mind, this seems to me to a prime time to do my annual Trip Reports & Race Recaps From The Last Year post. As you are no doubt aware, I have two recap pages in the above navigation bar:¬†one for races¬†and¬†one for trip reports. But if you haven’t been here in awhile, there may well...

The Fairest Week In Review: 7/31

Before ping into the week in review, a quick housekeeping note: back many years ago, when I shared this blog with¬†my girl Moon, we developed two keywords to demarcate our solo posts:¬†Just Jenn¬†and¬†Just Moon. Although Moon left the blog a long time ago, I’ve been continuing to mark most posts as Just Jenn, even though by now that’s going to be a given. Not anymore – the keyword is officially retired. I expect this to have zero impact on anyone at all ever, but I wanted to make note in case unforeseen confusion arose.¬† As far as you know!...

In Which You Might Have Already Seen This Stuff

And now it is time once again for that glorious annual post: the Recap Roundup. Mind you, about six months ago I assembled all my recaps on their own pages: one for races¬†and one for trip reports. But perhaps you didn’t realize or didn’t have time. Or maybe you’ve read all of it but you’re bored and could use a refresher. Or maybe I just wanted a really good excuse to use this gif: Anyway, I get on my bike and ride off… on the grass. Whatever the reason, please enjoy this comprehensive listing of all my multi-day theme...

In Which FRoA is Four & Jenn Isn’t Even There To Celebrate

Hey! Wanna hear something neat? As of Saturday, this blog is four years old! Dang. Wanna hear something else neat? I’m at the beach this week! So rather than a full blog post, I invite you to sit in silence for a minute or two and ponder what Fairest Run of All means to you, on this, its birthday. Here’s one approach. Nah, kidding. I’m just here to say I’m not here. Swing by next week for more exciting content and all the latest on what it’s like running on the boardwalk. (Spoiler alert: nice.) Don’t forget, you can¬†follow...

In Which Jenn Posts About Her Posts

¬†Hey! You know how there are a lot of posts on this blog? Well, sometimes I like to curate them for you. Always assuming of course that your interests align precisely with my theories about your interests. As such, here’s my yearly roundup of the trip reports and race recaps that have graced this blog; I’ve marked those that are new since last year with an asterisk. Catch up at your leisure. Here is a comprehensive listing of all my multi-day theme park (mostly Disney!) trip reports so far: Walt Disney World, December 2013 Disneyland, January 2014 Walt Disney...
