A Programing Note: 100,000 hits

Over the new year, this website reached 100,000 hits. Honestly, when I started it, I never expected that many people would check it out.

By far, the vast majority of visitors to the site are interested in the Boston Qualifier Questionnaire, a project I started after asking a few people in an internet forum about how they trained. It has now blossomed into a kind of slow burning internet thing with over 100 responses, and tens of thousands of views.

Sure, people come here for some other things, the book reviews get some traffic, as do the posts about Divine Madness, and for some reason people remain fascinated by the fitness habits of disgraced generals. But by and large, the popularity of this site (such as it is) is because over 100 strangers (so far!) agreed to share their story of qualifying for Boston with me. Thanks to all of you who have taken part, I know I have learned a lot, and so have many others.

So, what’s next? Starting today, and for the next 100 days, I’m going to be doing something I’m calling 100 Days of Milo where I will be featuring 100 pages and updates for the site, some running related, some not, some new, some long ignored. I’ll be updating this post with a list of the pages as they go live, starting with number one today – the new and improved BQ(Q) Questionnaire.

I hope you enjoy reading this stuff as much as I’ve enjoyed writing and compiling it. Onward!
