The Future of RunningAHEAD (Read 8024 times)

    Congratulations and best wishes to you!  Thank you for making this such a wonderful, useful, and user-friendly site. 


      Good luck!  I'll stick around no matter how many ads go up.

            Made a donation to help through the transition.  I only discovered this site recently but it has the features I like which were disappearing from some of the other running log sites.


            Keep up the great work, good luck with the new business and congratulations on the upcoming marriage!



              No problems on my end, Eric. Do what needs to be done. If you love doing RA and you are able to make legit money from it then is it really a job?

                  You've got my support either way.


                  Bring on the ads.  I'll even click on them.


                  All the best to you during this time of transition.


                  + whatever number we're at now...


                  RA is light-years ahead of any other log I've seen.  And the community is awesome, chock-full of very knowledgeable people willing to share their experience and knowledge to others.


                  Thank you for putting this together, and I wish you all the best with this new challenge... and with this wedding thing as well ;-)

                    I actually would be interested in the Viagra ads, if I could find someone to Viagracize.  Since that's not all that likely, I guess the running related ads will be fine.


                    Very nice seeing you tonight, all the best to you and your lovely bride to be.

                    Cry havoc and let slip the dawgs of war!

                    May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your SPF30, may the rains fall soft upon your sweat-wicking hat, and until you hit the finish line may The Flying Spaghetti Monster hold you in the hollow of His Noodly Appendage.

                      I've been in your shoes before.  Good luck and do what you have to do.

                      nothing to see here.  

                      Loves the outdoors

                        I will continue to use and love RA whatever you decide to do. I will even click on the ads which is a biggie for me Smile RA has been a huge part of me finding my love of running and I am excited to see the extra cool stuff you are planning.


                        I'm sorry you lost your job but I'm hoping that it turns out to be a great opportunity and you end up making a great living from RA!


                        I've just clicked the donate button to help start you off on your new endeavour Smile 



                        One day I decided I wanted to become a runner, so I did.


                        straw man

                          The absence of ads never had anything to do with why I was using RA. It was the best thing available when I started, and I've still seen nothing better. At this point, I have a coach on TrainingPeaks so I have to enter my workouts in two locations. It would never occur to me to not keep using RA.

                          Thanks, Eric for letting your light shine for us all.

                            Congratulations on your wedding!  Awesome job on Running Ahead, I can't imagine how you've done it so well part time, amazing.  I have lots of friends who have switched to your site from other sites.  I know everyone will support you, so good luck and thanks for doing such a great job!


                              I did extensive research on online training logs before deciding on RA as the log for me. Thank you, thank you for the service; my decision to use RA was never based on the lack of ads. Keep up the good work - I'm glad you chose to go for it. I pray you will be blessed. 


                                One idea is to include an associate link to Amazon so that members can click on the link before making any type of Amazon purchases. Another website that I frequent,, has recently started doing this and it is (presumably) a free and easy source of revenue.
