    Eric, any chance of finding my coolrunning log? I have tried all the way people have suggested, I can not log back into coolrunning?.....somehow I found it and was able to transfer it into Active, buy I would prefer it in your site?


    A Dance with Monkeys

      I used this method to help a friend just yesterday, posted elsewhere by a former CRer.
      I found a workaround if you don't have a cookie on your machine that remembered your login information. I'm not sure how long they will work for - I assume Active will shut these backdoors pretty quickly to lock you into their site. I just exported 5 years worth of data - glad it is still there. I had set coolrunning to remember my login information, so I did not need to specify my password and simply got my data by only specifying my username. However, once I cleared my cookies and tried to login using the approach mentioned I could no longer log in. But, I found another workaround, it is a two step process that should work for any one who remembers their username and password. In the URLs below, substitute USERNAME by your user name, and PASSWORD by the password you used on coolrunning. First you have to go through the login process: http://www.coolrunning.com/cgi-bin/register/start_prefs.cgi?UserName=USERNAME&Password=PASSWORD&goAction=login After the log in you will be redirected to the coolrunning home page, but now your login information has been remembered, and you can get to your old training log by going to: http://www.coolrunning.com/cgi-bin/log/display.cgi?u=USERNAME Then go to Tools and use the Download Your Running Log option to save your data (after saving this file, you can open it with excel).
      It worked great!
        I just sent an e-mail to the Active help desk asking for them to send my log. And they did!!!!


        Imminent Catastrophe

          I just got an email from Coolrunning. I thought they was dead.

            They've kept it going sorta kinda. Not exactly sure why.  It would be like continuing to sell something called NEW COKE.

            Anyway, perhaps our New England friends have better info.  I still occasionally see race results aggregated in coolrunning.

             

              Coolrunning is still the best race calendar / race results database that I know of.  That's all I've used it for in 4 or 5 years.

                I just got an email from Coolrunning. I thought they was dead.

                  I use it still to search races.  I don't know of any other sites

                    I agree, at least for the MA/NH area, coolrunnning is THE place to go to for finding races and for viewing race results.

                     

                    However, logging was killed years ago and I assume discussions died when the logging was killed. Coolrunning might still be sending me email but I have a rule in place to send it all to my trash bin.

                     

                    I would like to see RA start listing races and results like coolrunning does - but I suspect that it would never take off here in New England.

                    I run to clear my head and talk to my friends.

                      I just got an email from Coolrunning. I thought they was dead.

                       

                      To Coolrunning:  Those freaks was right when they said you was dead.
