This post makes six weeks. I remember in elementary school we received report cards every six weeks. Those six weeks seemed like an eternity. Now, six week increments come and go like forgettable strangers passing on a sidewalk. When I was in elementary school Ronald Reagan was our president. That man was elected president at a time when America was falling apart. Incumbent Jimmy Carter was attempting to do much of what Barack Obama is actually getting away with today, the USSR was in an arms race with America, and the United States was looking for a hero.

When Reagan entered office unemployment was at 11%. Among other statistical deficits, Reagan led this country out of a hole that liberals had tunneled to nowhere. Reagan broke up Russia’s socialist republic, created 15 million jobs, and, among many other accomplishments, managed to do all of this by usurping the gossip of media and the politics of Congress, by speaking directly to the American people. Ronald Reagan was known as “The Great Communicator” and we need a hero like him as soon as possible.

I have run 109.3 miles so far, averaging 2.60 miles a day.

1,970.7 miles to go.
