My 2016 MCM: Friends, Family, and a Lesson in Focus

I’m running the NYC Marathon

Though I will probably slip in an SEO news update somewhere next week, I will also be posting about my marathon experience this weekend, good or bad. I got in to running for the most part when I met my wife, who has always been a runner. Up until that point, I basically always considered [...]

2015 Delaware Trail Marathon: My first trail marathon

General Purpose This site is about SEO, but I will depart from SEO from time to time to share some things from my life.  I am a distance runner, and much like SEO, that involves a lot of slow build.  Lots of hard and honest work over time that pays off in the end.  This [...]
