Web Connections

ORN (Monday):  5.2 miles, R4/W1, cold, wet drizzle

It is amazing to me how the Web serves as a colossal library on every arcane topic you can imagine.  And that search engines make it all accessible and sortable...in seconds.

I say that because in the last few weeks, I've had wonderful emails from a number of runners who have come across this blog.  The key search term seems to relate to my use of and fascination with Jeff Galloway, his description of the run/walk method and the Run/Walk Calculator I posted.  (It certainly isn't my name that lands them here ... there is another Joe Ely who is much more famous.)

And it is fun!  Folks email me, we have a nice chat, usually about some very specific aspects of or questions about run/walk.  I'm glad to be able to help out...wow, how many people have helped me out???  Happy to return the favor.  

Persevere.  And don't be afraid to ask questions.

They might not be searching for that Joe Ely, but the shades the other Joe is sporting might be a good look for you dad.

You are famous in your own right :-)

It's fun to see how people find our blogs. I get a lot of searches for races. And then there's always the totally random ones I can't figure out at all.

Nice of you to help out!

I'm happy to know this Joe Ely, I've never heard of that other guy.
