On Sunday, this wee little health, weight loss, and fitness blog hit a pretty big milestone: I had my ONE MILLIONTH PAGE VIEW!
I tried to get a screengrab from my stats page as close to one million as possible, and got close! It’s pretty cool to think that people have visited and read what I’ve had to say one million times. From the get-go, this blog has always been a primary way that keep myself accountable, and I continue to be humbled and flattered by knowing that what I share resonates with so many readers. Thank you all for stopping by – and I hope you continue to stop by moving forward!
In other exciting news, this site has been named one of “The Top Five Tower Running Websites You Need to Visit!” I was given this honor by Tower Running UK, a British site dedicated to providing news and training information for stair running events across the globe.
They say some really nice things about me and this website in their article, and I really feel honored to be included. All the other websites on the list are written by much faster, more accomplished athletes – some of the fastest people in the US – and for them to include a guy that never wins these races (or even comes close) is a big deal. It’s also pretty sweet realizing that I know, personally, all the other authors on the list, and have raced alongside all of them many times.
I’m thrilled that my contributions to promoting this sport are being recognized. Most of my tower running posts are race recaps, all of which are archived here. And my very popular “Stair Training 101” post can be found here.
Lastly, if you’ve been missing the sound of my voice, you’re in luck. Tomorrow (November 1st), the folks behind “Missing Richard Simmons,” the blockbuster podcast that I was featured on a couple years ago, are releasing a new installment – and it’s a follow-up with many of the people that were featured on the original series.
I was interviewed for this episode a couple weeks ago, so hopefully I’ll be included and won’t be left on the editing room floor. But who knows! You’ll be able to find it wherever you listen to podcasts, and I’m sure they’ll post it on their website, too, where you can also listen to all six of the original installments.
What an exciting week!
