We’ve made it! From 32 fantastic blogs down to the most exceptional final two, it’s been a great ride! But now it’s time to pick the very best of the very best. Which blog rises to the tippy top:  Nichole’s Running Journey, the personal story of Nichole’s rise to an Olympic Marathon Trials Qualifier and beyond or Miss Zippy, Amanda’s reader-centric exploration of the deeper side of running? YOU decide!  Voting after the jump!

Nichole’s Running Journey


Nichole kicked off the competition with a surprise upset against Camille Herron with a final tally of 263 votes to 234! When we got to the Sweet 16, Nichole had quite a challenge from NYC Running Mama, but managed to pull it out with 278 to NYC Running Mama’s 237 votes. Nichole, a mom-to-be herself, then faced another fearsome mother runner opponent in See Mom Run Far, but again, Nichole managed to squeak out a 52% to 48% victory. And then finally, to advance to the championship round, Nichole out-raced fellow speedster See Red Run snagging 58% of the votes!

Miss Zippy


Miss Zippy‘s road to the championship began when she handily defeated Twenty Six Point Two, with 88 votes to 56. In the Sweet 16 round, Miss Zippy took on the powerhouse number 1 seed Run Eat Repeat and came out victorious, garnering 60% of the vote! Then in Round 3, Mizz Z shook down 105 votes to FueledbyLOLZ‘s 79, roundly defeating one of the youngsters in the tournament. Lastly, she punched her ticket to the championship with a hard-fought battle, narrowly eeking out a 16 point win over Ann’s Running Commentary out of 500 total votes! WOW!
