RA Anniversary-When did you join (Read 201 times)

GC100k


    Is there a way to tell?

     

    I was on the Runnersworld forums from 1995 until they ended them (Fall '17?). There were periodic exoduses (exodi?) from RW due to software issues starting in the 90s. I stayed with RW through it all but registered here at some point. I think I switched to the name GC100k on RW about 2008 and that's my name here, so I'm guessing I registered that name here after that. I joined the RW Beginners in exile here, which I think someone said happened in 2012, but I'm pretty sure I had registered here some years before that.

          I was coaching a high school cross country team at the time and one of my runners suggested that we use this site to track our running.  I've been here logging ever since.

           

          One day I had the bright idea to put in all the documented mileage I had since I began logging (Dec of 1979).  That took me quite a while.  It is pretty nice to look at the graphs and the race results.  It certainly seemed to be questionable entering old data while I was putting it all in, but it's kind of cool now.  Like running a fast race, you forget about the pain as you get further away from the actual event.

           

          The Logging of my running is one of the highlights of my day.  As I tell my runners now (that I recommend to use RA), "If you don't have pride enough to log your mileage, then you don't have pride in your running."

            Log stalking and learning from the more experienced runners since 1/9/2006.  Thanks to Eric for putting this cool place together, and to runners like mike, EJ, Jeff, etc. for open logs and the thousands of miles of guidance.

                      I joined RA just for the mapping feature at first. I had taken a break from running for a few years and started again in August 2011. That is when I started to create maps of new running routes. The mapping was great giving distances and elevations. Prior to that I had used my car odometer to measure my routes and just had very few, now I have over 50.The earliest post I can find is dated march 2013.

                       

                      Thanks Eric for a great running site and if anyone has not subscribed yet it would be a nice way to show your appreciation!

                        I detect a note of sarcasm? Ha! Change always takes some getting used to. I'm enjoying loosely following the sub 3:20 and sub 3:00 threads, seeing if anything catches my eye. It's nice having you all around, honestly!

                          Nope, not being sarcastic at all. I know there was some hesitancy at the start when we came by, but I think we came to a good solution and I've found this site to be wonderful.

                            It's nice to see some of you logging here too. For me, that's one of the best things, being able to dig deep into what people are actually doing or have done for training, recovery etc.

                              Like others, I didn't think I could trust my log on when I joined because I thought I did some back-filling.  If I recall correctly, when I started running, I "logged" my runs on index cards.  Then, I graduated to putting then in my Palm Pilot.   But because I save everything, I think I joined RA around December 2008 because I still have the lovely email from Eric - with smiley face - thanking me for a donation.  Smile
