“Cloud Surfing – Scott the Walker”

After surfing through many more bloggers’ diaries of daily grind, I at last found another gem.

A guy called Scott who lives in America and has been blogging since 2011 about all the race events he has taken part in.  Remarkably he is intending to complete 100 races and walk 10,000 miles before he retires!

Each blog is about an event he has taken part in – illustrated by photographs he has taken along the route.  Everything from 5k walks to 10k, to half marathons, marathons and a 32 mile hike, all around the outskirts of Manhattan.

I first wrote about walking as good exercise way back in November 2010 under the heading “Walk for Life” (you can find it in the ARCHIVE).  Since that time it has been a recurring theme, prompted by research studies about exercise being a good preventative, in terms of ill health.  Scott’s approach seems to me much better because it doesn’t turn exercise into a boring routine nor a mindless heart pumping exercise in the gym.  Scott gets to see new places and meet new people.  What a great idea!

It stands out among all the other diary type blogs and it is well worth a visit.

  1. It has taken a while to read the ‘link’: However how interesting ‘Flying discs’? I have heard golf being loosly described as a game with distractions of a walk, and at a price?, and yet ‘flying discs is a walk in a direction with lots of bending and streching, and I should imagine lots of searching.
    I t as described is a walk with a stick, but no four legged companion to retireve the said object(s).
    It is interesting how the elderly from other communities spend time exercising and doing communial activities.
    Here one has an american citezen committed to physical exercise, but a thought passed my mind, Older the one gets besides exercise to help the body remain supple one needs communial sustinence and bodily contact to allay the fears and threat of loneliness that sometimes overtakes one in the later years, when one is the soul/sole surviour or head of a family.
    Overall some points have been solved but not the complete solution. Blogging about ones activities helps and keeps the mind fresh and active, but it is that ‘human’ in us all, that needs courtship.

    Then you must know about forums, if you’re looking to make online income from house.
    If you are already selling an item, they are an exceptional media for marketing devices and are something that should be included to your sales toolbox.

    Eric- Those days yes but lately I have actually been only and extremely hectic talk through the phone.

    Typically I would request for option for a certain brand name
    which my TV repair good friends are familiar with.
    Often consumers desire the held up quick and
    the fastest option is to contact my repair work friends.
    With this method, I saved lots of time. If they face issues in TV repair, my TELEVISION repair work friends likewise do call me for responses.

    Direct response marketing creates immediate responses so you can quickly track and measure the results.

    Direct response marketing is really transparent so
    you will quickly learn if your message is working.
    Your marketing content should focus on your prospect rather than on your company and discuss their interests, frustrations, worries and desires.
    It should grab their attention, keep them interested,
    create desire, and include a clear call to action.
    So if you desire an ideal example of exactly what companies utilize viral marketing,
    look them up on youtube or simply log into your facebook.
    Chances are you’ve seen them being passed around from good friend
    to pal on Facebook, Twitter and even through your e-mail.

    Talk Blend is a company that markets the idea of
    utilizing video to provide your message. Exactly what they actually
    are is a service business. They have done the screening and research study to establish a
    quality set of video items for use by their clients. They likewise have a quality advertising and media
    staff to offer customized services. They have actually now been in business for numerous
    years and seem economically sound. Contributed to all of that their response time to their
    associates and consumers is rather personalized and
    really great.
    Keep in mind, Viral internet marketing Videos are unpredictable.but that’s part
    of exactly what makes them so successful! Take the Old Spice Commercial
    for example.that went Viral on YouTube and on Facebook!
    And why ?? Due to the fact that it was humorous and initial!!
    So the common style will normally either be clever creativity, humor or both!
    Originality that is based upon the present pop culture– what is popular and huge RIGHT NOW!

    Or that is simply so smart and smart that it will certainly then simply BECOME our popular culture!!

    Think of that: every week, that chain invested a fortune to draw consumers to its doors, and afterwards proceeded to drive a
    a great deal of those clients away. Since marketing and logistics
    were incapable to communicate, all.
    I get annoyed every day and have actually undermined myself by deleting at least two lists with over
    40 customers. Why? Stupidity is one reason, and stupidity is the other.
    Ah, but find out and live. I went back to square one twice, but I press forward since sheer determination will not allow me
    to stop, that and a minor obsession to it.
    Don’t worry; I have a call into my medical professional!
