If you're on social media, you probably noticed a lot of year in review posts. After seeing a few, I wondered how my year would look.
Top Nine Instagram Posts
You can use an online app to create your top nine posts for Instagram in 2018. I used the Top Nine App to generate my graphic. Download yours with the watermark for free, or without the watermark for $1.99. Here's my free version:
One glance and it's obvious races, BibRave, and my AfterShokz headphones are most popular. The Top Nine app revealed I had 7.5k likes on 197 posts in 2018.
Next, I thought about a 2018 theme Instagram didn't reveal. Dinosaurs. 2018 was the year of the dinosaur for me. Let me show you what I mean.
Dinosaur Theme in 2018
Technically, the year of the dino began on Dec. 30, 2017. Maybe that's why Top Nine didn't see it. Also, it could be because this post was on Twitter.
It took a couple more months until I found my next dinosaur. I spotted a Santa Dino (Santa Dino?) in early April. That's right, he had on a hat and had a gift to give. Although the sign encouraged me to take him home, I didn't. Where would I keep a Santa Dino?
Dino #4, 5, 6, 7
I found lots of fun stuff over the summer, but no more dinos until I hit the jackpot in September.
My neighborhood embraces Halloween. There are decorations on decorations on decorations. And yes, they go up early. Check out the 4 Halloween dinosaurs below.
These creatures brought my total dino count to 7 for the year.
Dino #8? Maybe, Maybe Not.
Found this guy at the end of October. Now, I know a dino and dragon are technically different. But they seem similar enough to me.
Sure, a dino doesn't breathe fire. And, a dragon is a myth. But other than that: big scary creatures that roar. Right?
I guess it depends on how seriously you take the #SeenOnARun game. I'm going to count him.
What's Ahead for 2019?
I've had 5 neighborhood runs so far this year. I've seen a drone, a man's suit jacket, and a baby's sock. I don't see a theme yet. And no, I didn't bring anything home.
Here's to a new year filled with fun runs. I hope you find lots of interesting things while you're out and about!
This is where you'll find me writing instead of running. (But, you know I'll be writing about running, right?)

I just want to share what has worked for me. It's my hope that this website informs and inspires so you can enjoy an active, healthy and happy lifestyle.
