>General Running>RA Anniversary-When did you join
Happy 11 year RA anniversary to me! WOW, how time does fly. My first Donation was in 2009. This the 1st run I logged.
Run until the trail runs out.

Nice! Aug 2, 2009.
not bad for mile 25
Well, I back logged a few runs, so I'm not positive when I started here, but my first log entry is November 2008. My first donation was April 2010.
First logged run...May 8, 2006. I still feel like a noob.

Like zoom, I'm an RA OG. I joined in Q1 or Q2 of 2006. I knew Eric from my running club at the time. He was good enough to import my log going back to 2002 so my RA log pre-dates the existence of RA.
I've had a couple of quiet periods of little posting, mostly when I wasn't running much but my log is intact, and I survived the Coolrunning invasion of 2007 and all of the subsequent RWOL invasions. I still have a public log and profile and don't put my PR's in my signature field. WHAT NOW, BITCHES??

When did RA officially go-live? I was thinking it had been around for a while before I stumbled-upon it while googling "online running log" maybe 6-7 weeks into C25k. I think there were maybe only 20 members, when I joined (or, at least only that many actively in the GSP). I wonder how many of us originals are still active.

Coolrunning invasion of 2007
I wasn't exactly sure when this was but that is when I came on board here. My log actually goes back to 2005 as I was using SportTracks before coming here and Eric was kind enough to import that data into my RA log. Hard to believe that it's been almost 12 years.
Not at it at all.
2012 ish. I was using the RW log for a month or two and then they were shutting it down and I was happy to see that the log RW was using was actually the RA log so I transferred the runs over. Having an online log was what it finally took to get me from 2-4 mile runs 2-4 times a week to an idiot like the rest of you. It took me a year or two to figure wth forums were and why one would want to participate in them.
MTA: Anywho, I consider my RA anniversary and "starting to be a runner" anniversary to be June 16 2012.
She laughs at me......
My first log entry is 5/17/2010.
Late 2012, when RW's spam invasion got out of control and beyond repair. I was part of that mass exodus to RA, which at the time seem to piss off a lot of the old regulars here.
Same here. Although I had only just joined RW, so I don't really have any of that history, and all the turmoil here associated with the invasion was kind of lost on me.
At the time I had hired an online running coach and he was using RA as his place for his runners to log their workouts so he could check them weekly. Incidentally, 12/31/2007 - also the day I started my run streak.
