1,000 miles!!!

I broke 1,000 miles today! Pretty excited. I will be at the halfway point in a couple of weeks and it will be downhill from there as we get closer and closer to November 6, 2012. It’s been a long, challenging journey so far. Battling the mental and physical obstacles that come with any endeavor---goal versus risk, achievement versus failure, boldness versus fear, all of those elements that make us so passionate or idle about certain ideas and beliefs, these 1,000 miles have formed a firm foundation for me to stand on and explain with conviction why I think it is so critical for the future of America to not reelect Barack Obama. Thank you for reading and keeping up with the blog. I hope you will continue to follow the miles and the posts as we move closer to the intersection awaiting us in 2012.

Since today is a big milestone I thought I would do something different and share some stats about the blog and where the traffic has been coming from over the past year. Thanks for keeping up!
Thanks for reading!!!

  1. Congratulations for making it this far. Running is a great test of will. In my experience, when I run, I feel that every moment of the run would be a good moment to stop. To keep going is a constant challenge.


  2. Thanks, Jason. The end of this month will make a year and I will be more than halfway done with my goal. Thanks for following the blog.

    I find it hard to make any sense of what has been going on this year in D.C. The two primary achievements worth mentioning so far are the two sides coming together at the buzzer to set the 2011 budget, well into 2011, and this latest prolonged achievement of raising our debt ceiling. It is a soap opera filled with cheesy actors and both sides have tunnel vision directed at 2012. It's a greased political football, as usual.
