“But the fact of the matter is: Bones heal. Chicks dig scars. And the United States of America has the best doctor-to-daredevil ratio in the world!” — Captain Lance Murdoch, The Simpsons
Three months ago, I started my 90-in-90 Something New (#SoNew on Twitter) project. The goal: explore the state I live, finding interesting things along the way. The reason: in year three of my sobriety, it’s time to get busy living.
There’s more to it. You can read all about the exploration here if you want, but what’s been more exciting for me is seeing this ripple out to my friends, my students and my Twitterverse. The 90-in-90 challenges have become a part of my life in ways I never contemplated.
Today ends the Something New project, and while I didn’t quite get to do something new every day, I think I did as well as I could. But you can be the judge.
My last Something New: the Tecumseh Trail Marathon, a 26.2-mile romp through the woods of Bloomington, Indiana.
