Thank you to the RA community. (Read 2110 times)


day after day sameness

    One year ago today, on April 1, 2010, I ran my first full run (no walking, ran 3 miles) since getting injured in Oct 2009.  I’m not certain that I would have returned to steady running without the support and encouragement I’ve gotten from the RunningAHEAD community in so many forms over the past 17 months.

     

    Please, no replies to this posting -- just accept my heartfelt thanks and appreciation for your messages, for freely sharing your experiences, and for the leadership and example so many of you show quietly (and not so quietly) in your running logs.  You’ve moved me to keep moving through it all.


    Thank you.

    Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless

        So why haven't you run today?

          I  guess as you get more bodacious, you begin to lose more brain cells, because there is a limit to how much magnificence your body can house

            Get over it!  I want to thank you for the inspiration you've given me every chance I get!!!  


            Am I doing this right?

              I wonder how many pages a post asking for no replies can get to....

              No excuses....

                    But if I were to reply, I would say:

                     

                    • You are welcome
                    • +1; I echo your appreciation. RA peeps were there for me too in my time of need!

                      I didn't spend much time lurking a year ago, so I only realized your situation long after the incident.  Once I read about it, though, I was amazed at your progress. Nice job.  Inspirational really. 

                       

                      See?  You're passing it on already, without even realizing it.

                       

                      BTW, this is no reply at all.

                        I am not going to reply to say that you are welcome.  What I will do is thank you.  I had a stupid injury last year that came close to make me consider just giving up running.  I was frustrated.  But then I saw folks like you sticking with it.  You got run over by a car, and you didn't quit.  Thanks Andy, and keep it rolling.
