For what it's worth, my group that went to RA aborted and came back to Active today. Those RA people were just too hard to deal with. They did not like all the CR's coming to their site. So we moved back. We didn't go to Kick, we came back here. All this jumping around is insane.
There you go. An example of why not to rush into these things.
What's the hurry? It's not THAT bad here.
We just take our time... Make a good decision... If/as individuals need to bolt, they will. We'll gather by the river at some point. It's all good.
Today's daily training post on Active had 10 posts while the one on kick (the first one there) had 24 posts.
Yup... I'm sensing the momentum shift myself. I'm lurking over there. The signal-to-noise ratio is a bit low - but it ain't much higher here and I think that's typical of the "off" season. The 14th is feeling like a long way off.
I'm still officially over here, but geez it's soooo much easier to post over there. The contrast makes this place feel even worse than before. I wish I'd never gone. **** you KickRunners, **** YOU WHY??? -Sob!!-
I glanced through the RA forums for the first time ever just awhile ago. From what it looks like, many CR people are hedging their bets, and this pretty much includes folks from all the old CR threads. Some have got profiles on RA or KR or even both forums. And some have seemed to have packed up shop altogether and staked out new territory.
Like was mentioned before, I'm sure a few haven't gotten the lay of the landscape due to the holidays and with this being the off-season for the most part. The idea to cross-post until mid-January is definitely a good one.
I chuckled at Tammy's posting of the Cheers theme lyrics, but that's what it's really all about.
Geez, I scrolled over something, and I got that Copyright Active.com window that froze on my screen for the longest time. Ahh, well...that's the way things are now here I guess, for better or worse
I am a runner who spends most of her time on the Newbie Cafe board (I participate in the Weight Watchers Runners thread), but I used to lurk on the MS forum sometimes for swim tips, etc. I have so much respect for triathletes who work at 3 disciplines, and you really are a supportive group. I mostly wanted to say thanks, since many times your race reports, training suggestions, and overall enthusiasm inspired me.
I find myself spending less and less time on CR; I post to my usual thread, and then leave. There are far fewer threads to pick from these days around the boards, and the overall energy is low. Our group is sticking things out here for now, but that may change down the line as well.
I just wanted you to know that you may have had a larger audience than you even realize. And, if I ever decide to train for a tri, I will log onto however many sites it takes to find you guys!
Hey there, Penguin! Thanks for coming out of lurk mode! The influx of folks from other forums (like the Newbie Cafe) is one reason we all want to be on a lively board that is for more than just tri-folks. We love it when someone new catches the bug.
One way to keep track of us down the road is to check in here . It's a life raft where we'll leave breadcrumbs to wherever we land.
