    That is great. Stick with it and you will be amazed at how you will progress. I just started running again after a long break and I am up to 3 miles after about a month. I want to get back to running 5 miles once or twice a week and 3 miles most other days. Need to loss 15 pounds to be in peak running shape though. In time...

      I was poking around one night and came upon this old blog post:

            • "Some history: I created the “Semantic Rhyming Dictionary” while a student back in 1996, renaming it as the more euphonious "RhymeZone" in 2000. Since then the site has answered billions of search queries from tens of millions of creative people around the English-speaking world: songwriters, copywriters, poets, pranksters, puzzle solvers, and more. It's been the subject of jokes, songs, and copious praise (and some parody, too). "

                • And the Onion mentions Rhymezone to make fun of a rapper.

                  • RhymeLovingWriter Thanks! All summer (almost) I've been without internet, but finally today I was able to get back online. That's why I haven't responded until now. The wedding went really great - my aunt and everyone else loved the music, so that was encouraging.

                    • Here's me hoping that my summer without internet didn't make me miss too many amazing poems... If anyone has any suggestions on which poems posted this summer are must-reads, I would be very thankful!
