THANK YOU To Wingz/Janell (Read 613 times)

    Some big props go out to Wingz/Janell for all the work she does on the monthly "virtual races!" Smile Being semi-retarded, I hadn't really noticed that there's a whole group forum set up for the racers (which I just discovered). And I definitely didn't realize that - on top of announcing the races, planning the schedule, bugging people to sign up, bugging people for results, welcoming new racers, and compiling and reporting the results - she's also spent her own time setting up little "profile" pages for every single racer. That's a lot of work. (Raises glass of unidentified alcoholic beverage) Here's to Wings! Thank you.

        The fact that I actually had to go check to see if I'd joined the group seems to confirm my self-diagnosis of mild retardation. But, yes, when I click on "user groups" and look under "my groups," I see "virtual racers." Which I assume means I joined the group. Even though I don't remember doing it. It may have been my evil twin. Or Mr. T. Who may actually be my evil twin. And (nice segue here, thank you) ... guess who I saw on Fox News last night? That's right: Mr. T. A coincidence? I think not.

                      Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson

                          Janell, thanks for leading the charge in getting us out the door and running. You're an awesome race director!!!
                            I know I haven't run but one virtual race, but props to you anyway! I agree with the sentiment expressed by all. And, when my schedule permits, I'll be signing up. In fact, I thought I read somewhere about a virtual Half in November. If so, I'm there. Don't give up on me.
