I have been blogging for over a year now.
I have had a few posts that people have really liked and have a lot of great followers who I really appreciate.
About 6 weeks ago I wrote a post about the freedom that running gives me and, for me, went viral. I got about 10 times the number of views on that one post compared to my average.
One person whom I follow and who follows me, wrote and asked if he could post that post on his blog. His name is Bruce Matson and he recently published an awesome book about health, running and his journey to Christianity. The way I found out about Bruce was my running buddy @BigBigGeek bought me an audio copy of his book to listen to as TJ and I drove up to Pennsylvania to run our first (and so far, only) marathon.
Bruce asked that I add a few references on the spiritual side for the post which I was glad to do. I honestly don’t post much about spiritual things on my blog, not because I am afraid to post about them (see my Faith tab above), but I set out to write a running blog and though I give God all the credit for all that I have accomplished, I’m sure He understands this is a running blog and is not offended. 🙂
Okay… First I want to say thank you to Bruce for posting my edited post on his blog…

Second I encourage you to read his blog and look into purchasing his book. It is very well written and is close to paralleling my journey from 278 to … soon Boston… maybe. It is almost uncanny how closely our journeys have paralleled each other.
Lastly, thank you @BigBigGeek for introducing me to Bruce.
You know, it is really cool that I started this blog with just a few people following me and now I have hundreds and I have a post on Bruce’ blog – an author.
I am grateful to Bruce for the post and all of you who read my blog… even when I have to only write about walking. 🙂
