We did it before you, Conan.

My life is basically focused on two very different areas: Illustration and Running. That's been reflected in this blog, I think. And the Running part of my life has been defined largely by an event in my college days. In 2004, my teammates at RIT and I ran across the country in a continuous relay.

My family says its a good read. And they are not biased at all.
