I've been typing away at this blog thinking it didn't really matter what I said because no one is going to read it anyway. I got 78 page views yesterday !!! For a real blog that may not be much, but for me it's about 78 more than I expected. I've been able to be pretty relaxed and honest here because I figured this was essentially a personal diary for me. To think that people are reading it puts a little more pressure on me to do two things.
1. Deliver quality content.
2. Be a little self concious of what I write.
Unfortunately the two are related. The only thing I have going for me is that what I write will be genuine and honest. I'm not a knowledgable marathoner or blogger. ( as you can see, I haven't figured out the spell checker yet.....I thought I had more time !! ) It was pretty easy to be real and write from my gut because I thought no one was reading it. If I start to filter my thoughts too much, I'll lose the only thing I have going for me on this blog. Ultimately this isn't really about running, its about my struggles within me. The same struggles that most people have. I'm just using running as a vehicle to work through some of these things. The good thing is the path to being a better runner is pretty easy to follow. The path to being a better person isn't quite as clear, and the results aren't always readily apparent.
I sincerely thank anyone who's reading this. I'd love to hear anyone's feedback. I may not necessarily incorporate it, but I'd like to know what everyone is thinking anyway.

I'm looking forward to the journey !!
Merry Christmas to everyone, and as always.....just don't stop running !!
