I’m Colleen O’Neill Conlan, the blog mistress here at Going the Distance. I’m a wife, a mom, a bookkeeper, a gardener, a non-traditional college student, and now a blogger. I live on Vinalhaven, an island about 15 miles off the coast of Rockland, Maine. I’ve nearly completed my English degree at University of Maine at Augusta, and I haven’t had to step foot on campus yet!

    Colleen –

    Only found about this blog after reading the article this evening in the US Today. All very inspiring and motivational. I am almost speechless! Really well done. Your words and posts are wonderful as they present a picture of your experience that is so palpable, simple, and beautiful. Congrats and keep writing. I am so moved.

    Hi Colleen! I love your new blog. For being a reclusive soul (your words, not mine!) you are so brave. I look forward to reading more. And of course I love the details of vh.
