While I'm fully aware that I'm too much of a newbie to cast a qualifying vote, I had to choose Wonder Woman for the Best Typo category. Well done, Wink

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of the forum. In celebration, the winner of the Picture of the Year is none other than our beloved former LRRC president and the 2005 running club President of the Year, not to mention the nicest guy you'll ever meet, Paul Ward!!

Congratulations to Paul and also to the site administrators for a year well done, as well as their award for the 2005 Volunteers of the Year for thier work on the site. I have certainly had my share of fun with it, and some of that fun even had something remotely to do with running!

Thank you Jacob. I guess you deserve most of the credit for the picture because that's your hirsute chest welded to my head. I appreciate the kind words.

It looks like your one year anniversary of joining the forum is a few days away. Think you can hit 800 postings by then?

I second your congratulations and appreciation to the site administrators. Thank you guys. This site has been a real benefit to the running community in Arkansas and many people enjoy the fruits of your labors.

I dunno, Paul, I'm at 780 with 6 days to go...I suppose I could put up a few Marathon Profiles, start a few polls, maybe run a "Best of MarathonBoy" series, start up a new series of Marathons, ala the Trilogy and the Summer Sonata...(we actually have one planned right now), maybe go back to some of my favorite topics and make something up to get them back to the top, such as "MarathonBoy does 3:16:49 at Atlanta," just to make sure it really happened and wasn't just a distant dream. (It was actually 3:16:42 net, which was 43 seconds away from a BQ.) It's been all downhill from there, but what I have lost in speed, I have tried to make up for in entertaining the running masses on the forum.

Yes, its been a heck of a year for the forum, and I have certainly enjoyed it! Can't imagine life without running, running buddies, and posting on the forum. Oh, and here is my personal favorite quote of the year. Since it was anonymous, I dream that it is representative of hopefully more than a few of you.

Yeah, no excuses here!! I am proud to be consistently and soundly spanked at every race by literally every person I know.

Buddy, Jacob: You are the heart and the offbeat soul of the RRCA Grand Prix. You represent all of the fun of the series. It is fun to line up and race. It doesn't really make a big difference if you "win" or not. It is the fact that we all attempt to win, or just race our best, and have a damn good time. You keep on, baby. Just watch that marathoning stuff and don't get hurt.
