Thanks for giving a shout-out to my hometown! Lots of great races up there too if you want to hit the road, including the Door County Half Marathon that's IN Peninsula Stat Park!

Well-deserved! When I moved to Chicago in February, it was Heidi, as much as anyone, who helped me out and introduced me to dozens of great people. Funny thing was I didn't know her at all before a chance conversation on Facebook. Then - like she has for many others – the next thing you know she's bending over backwards for you. True generosity.

 @manamica Haha, thanks! Yeah, I'm always stunned that people will include quotes laden with jargon. NOBODY talks like that! (Plus, it usually makes no sense, like a college freshman trying to use big words to impress friends in a blacklight-hazed dorm room.)

Love the reconciliation that "I’m not wasting my time on uninterested folks" Lisa! When producing a daily enewspaper I used to waste time wondering why people unsubscribed (Which article turned them off? Was it the editorial? My photo?...) then came to understand that, like Twitter and Facebook, it's WHO is engaged that matters, not the number of followers, likes, and subscribers.

 @Ryan Crowe Great thoughts Ryan, especially your final one. It's all about who works hard to gain the knowledge, whether they're 15 or 55. Social Media grows more complex by the minute and using it effectively for business and branding over the long haul is not luck and not just your personality. We're moving beyond Social Media as an afterthought for business, fortunately, but just barely. We provide value by knowing how to evaluate what works, by knowing what results matter and which are B.S., by knowing where to dive in and where to dabble. Being young - nor being old - doesn't earn any of that, hard work, time, and research does (and I won't even go into the value that comes with years of mistakes and failures).
