Those of you who read my old blog may remember how my run (and walk and cycle and swim) challenge for 2015 was to cover the equivalent of the distance from Houston, TX to Clinton, CT, with detours through Baton Rouge, New Orleans and Vicksburg MS, a distance of 1940 miles.
On paper, I've just reached Hagerstown, MD (the 1554 mile point). My virtual route from this point would have taken me through Hershey PA, Morristown NJ, Tarrytown NY, Bridgeport CT and finally Clinton CT. But, the miles are rolling by easily, and so I've decided to set a new end-point and to throw in a detour! The new virtual itinerary is:
- Hagerstown MD (1577 miles)
- Hershey PA (1655 miles)
- Morristown NJ (1804 miles)
- Coney Island NY (1848 miles)
- Tarrytown NY (1893 miles)
- Bridgeport CT (1938 miles)
- Clinton CT (1978 miles)
- South Portland ME (2209 miles)
Why am I sharing this? Because I think it's great to get to know people, and so I'm asking if any of you have ties to any of those areas (or, you know, areas thereabouts), or areas along the way. Maybe they're your home town? Maybe you holidayed there? Maybe great-aunt Harriet lives there. If that's the case, how would you like to write a guest post, to go up when I tick of the mileage that that town represents? It can be any length, and on anything you like - why you live where you do, why you love running (if you do), pictures you'd like to share, anything (as long as it's not, you know, pornographic or deliberately obnoxious). And naturally, links to your own blog/website/business are fine.
Hope to hear from anyone who loves to write!
