Happy 10th Anniversary, RM!!

Postby CAW » Sun Jul 26, 2015 1:28 pm

I'm taking a super quick break from hanging the last of the wall art and unpacking the last boxes to stop by and say Happy Birthday to the online community that gave me so many friends. Hard to believe it has been 10 years! Where has the time gone?

Btw, IG, the Ottawa shot glass arrived yesterday (mail is delivered on Saturdays here). Thank you! Pics to come soon!

Happy Birthday, Maniacs! What are you doing to celebrate today?

Thank you to the site admins, and the original creators of this site! As Dee said, I've learned much, talked much, and maybe not run so much ;) But that's the 'maniac' part of the site, right?? RIGHT? ;)

Happy birthday RM nation :D

Founders and admins can suck it. Mods rule.

In any event, happy 10th. My runiversary isn't until the fall (I was a couple of months late).

I have made so many friends in real life and just as many virtual friends because of RM. I love this place! Thank you Admin and Mods for keeping it going for so long and strong.

Ha. I've gotta admit that I never noticed that there are mods separate from the admins. You're all indistinguishable omnipotent beings as far as I can see.

We really only have one "founder"- so thank you queen holly!! But there were a bunch of "early adopters" who were key in helping start the site. Jacob lured me over early on. And I never turned back.

Happy Birthday, RM! :)

Happy 10th Anniversary. :dance: Traditional gift is Tin/Aluminum so perhaps everyone could enjoy a Beer Mile to celebrate. :D

I see this as the anti LetsRun website. Kinder, gentler, better gun control. :lol:

Thanks to the people who make this site go.....And Andy. Ha! :dance:
