June 30 marked the one-year anniversary of PhillytoLAonFoot.com. As I was preparing to head to Europe, I didn't get a cake or celebrate in any proper (note the European term) way. One year is actually fairly significant in the blogging world where blogs rise and fall more than Gordon Brown's popularity (again, I'm staying intra-continent).
Anyway, I had a chance to re-read some of my first posts about the first run, my progress when I started (from early May 2007) and whether I'm really running from Philadelphia to Los Angeles (spoiler: I'm not). I also had a chance to reflect on my run of the New Orleans Marathon back in February of this year. Needless to say, it's been quite a journey and I appreciate all of the great comments and encouragement I got from you over this past year.
At this point, I've run over 950 miles and have run the equivalent of Philadelphia to Oak Grove, Missouri. It's been an amazing journey and I'm only a third of the way through. Here's to two more great years of blogging!
