Milo Hits 300,000 Views: Top 30 Posts And Pages

Even though I all but ignored it for the past six months or so, this little old website has been chug chug chugging along and as of this week it went over 300,000 hits.

I realize that in the land of tik tok this is nothing, and blogging is very old fashioned, but I remain here, and at least some people continue to visit.

As has become my tradition at hitting these little milestones, I’ve put together the to 30 posts and pages and this trusty little site for your enjoyment. Here they are:

  1. The Boston Qualifier Questionnaire

    Since I launched this site and the Boston Qualifier Questionnaire Project it has been, by far, the most popular part of the site. The home page for that project, which now including well over 300 interviews continues to get consistent use from BQ hopefuls.

  2. David Goggins Inspired Body Weight Work Outs

    Back before he went on the Joe Rogan show and wrote a book, I did a little page on some of the body weight exercises David Goggins did in the book Living with Seal. Now, this is apparently the number one hit on certain Goggins related search results. Really glad to see so many people have found this page helpful.

  1. About

    A page explaining what the fuck is going on here remains popular with the confused and curious.

  2. Data Analysis of the Boston Qualifier Questionnaire

    When the BQ(Q) project hit 200 entries I did some basic statistical analysis. This is really where you should start if you’re interested in qualifying for Boston.

  3. Fitness Habits of Disgraced Generals

    Holding strong at the number five sport is this short post on the fitness habits of generals Generals McCrystal and Patreus.  People google weird stuff.

  4. S-Town’s John B. Mclemore: A Reading List

    I was struck by the life of the man at the center of this ground breaking podcast and did a little post on his reading habits. Apparently other people were interested in this too.

  5. The Runnable Bridges of New York City

    I made a map of every bridge in New York City that you can run over. This was probably the most time intensive project I’ve done for Milo. Glad other people are still using it.

    This was the year I tried to read books that reflected the demographics of the U.S. I recapped all that here.

  7. Milo of Croton

    A research page of information on our main man, Milo of Croton. I suspect this page has featured in number of hastily written undergrad papers.

  8. The Egoist on the Fixed Gear

    Don’t be an asshole on your bike.

    Just what the title say, a brief recap of the very early history of modern strength training.

    A page with some thoughts and ideas on the Barkley Marathons, the worlds most insane foot race.
