15 miles to go - Progress - 4/25/10 (Lynwood, CA)

Well, the big news is that I'm only 15 miles away from LAX! I will get to the finish line by the middle of this coming week, and I can't tell you how excited I am to get there (and how ready I am to kick down the miles).

I'm now 2,721 miles into my journey and I'm on 105 West toward LAX. At this point, the only quick turn I'll need to make is onto Highway 1 to turn into the airport.

I'm in Lynwood which was named after Mrs. Lynn Wood Sessions, the wife of a local dairyman. The town is close to Watts and is the residence of, among others, Weird Al Yankovic, Venus Williams, Kevin Costner, and Glen Bell (the founder of Taco Bell).

I'm planning to make my final run at White Park in Concord, NH, on Wednesday morning. That's where my graduation will be on May 15, so I thought it was the right place to end the journey. I'll be ending a week and a half early!
