Blogiversary #2. Wow!

3 miles today.


So I actually forgot my own anniversary on November 28th.  No, not my wedding anniversary but my blog anniversary -- my Blogiversary!  Wow, it's hard to believe it's been two years since I started this blog.  Here's a few statistics in those two years:

  • I've posted 727 times including this post.
  • I've got 254 followers on Google friend connect(that I thought was going away) but I'd guess many more people read the blog daily.  Based on some websites that track unique hits - 1,000-1,500 people read regularly depending on the month.
  • I've done 64 reviews on running gear.  You can read about them HERE.
  • I'd had 192,923 page views on the blog from around the globe.  Over 50,000 are from overseas.
  • My top post was a review I did for Tommie Copper compression wear.  20,139 views of that blog post and the review wasn't even that favorable.  Ha!  I guess I should thank Tommie Copper for bringing activity to my blog.
  • I've run 3,562 miles(since my first post on 11/28/10) in 511 hours with 89,287 ft of elevation.
  • I ran 36 races which include 4 marathons and 11 half marathons.
  • I did 18 race reviews, many of local races
  • I've met many incredible runners both online and in person.  It's a great running community we have in the Detroit area.
I hope you continue to enjoy the blog.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for following along in my journey for miles, marathons and memories.  If you have any suggestions, questions, advice or comments, I'd love to hear from you.

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
