Hi. My name’s John. I know a lot of folks here from CRMS and the aborted attempt to reproduce that site at Active. I really tried there. But, seems the momentum has shifted here and I was feeling more and more alone in my attempts to overcome the bugs. I think the group of us that was trying to hold it together there has now given up. We’d like to get back together with our old friends here, maybe contribute something, and maybe even make a new friend or two. Sound good? <img alt="confused.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/confused.gif"><br><br>
Uh... OK, so I was born on a cold winter day in… No wait. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far way… No, that’s not it either. OK, it was right around my 40th birthday in 2000. I started a new job and wanted to join the gym there. I had to get a doctor’s note to do so. I went for a physical and Doc says… You’re 40. Your blood pressure is too high. You’re obese. Your cholesterol is high. Your triglycerides are whacked. You have a family history of heart disease. You’re probably gonna die before too many more years.<br><br>
OK, so I started working out and eating better. Dropped my weight from 265 to 185 (these days I hover right around 200) and ran my first marathon in 2002. In 2006, I got talked into trying a sprint triathlon, since I didn’t quite drown, got hooked on that. (Have you picked up on my addictive tendencies yet?) Last year, I did a couple sprints, a couple Oly’s, and a half-Ironman. I’m having fun with the cross-training. Who knows what’s next.<br><br>
I like to post a lot, frequent the daily threads, like to keep the signal-to-noise ratio reasonably high, brag about my kids, and, of course, know everything about everything.<br>
So let’s roll! <img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif">

LLR, I applaud your efforts to keep us together on the Active board. I think we all tried to some degree or another, but it just wasn't happening. This place just "feels" more like the old CR.<br><br>
The slow trickle away from Active is now becomming a mass exodus.

Did you guys see the "Give us a chance" thread over at Active today? Talk about a day late...<br><br>
Uh, okay, so I'm Matt. I like to post a lot, too. Yes, I'm addictive, too. Been in triathlons for two years, looking forward to a big 3rd year. I'm not quite as talkative as LRR or Thor (ussoccer), so I'll call it good now. Besides, it's time to workout.

What's more incredible is the number of bad jokes he has in his back pocket <img alt="roll_eyes.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif"> Just ask Thor

I agree. It really was a worthy cause, but even my wife noticed I wasn't surfing - let alone posting - nearly as much on Active. Even when I had time.<br><br>
I think it was the annoyance factor. I should not have to WORK to get the posts up there. I hated the 90s rule on CR and this was FAR FAR worse. Now I have NO SUCH LIMITATION I AM A POSTING MACHINE <img alt="notworthy.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/notworthy.gif">

Who's ussoccer?<br><br>
As for Thor, I don't think he's talkative. He's just misunderstood. I'll tell you about it some day. I mean, he will -- he'll tell you about it. It's not like it's a big deal or anything. I mean... I mean, he means that he doesn't mind talking, but he doesn't talk a lot, and he certainly doesn't type a lot of words to say not a thing.

Thor sounds much more authoritative than USSOCCER!
