Hi all have a question...

I am looking through the forum here and does not seem to be much activity, am I just not seeing them or is this site really that slow? I am going to use the program either way but I do enjoy the chat forums. They can really help us older folks just starting out.
Thanks!

It seems to go in fits and starts--partly it seems to be seasonal, with spring (in the northern hemisphere, at least!) being the most popular season to start running :)

People are certainly still buying the Get Running app, though unlike when we started there are a lot of other apps following the C25K plan out there now, which I'm guessing is spreading people more thinly across more places to talk... Hopefully you'll find a few kindred spirits around, though!

Benjohn (the original iOS app developer) and I are still around, and we've both been through the plan and got running!

Hi All, yes I have to agree I was disappointed to see so few "active" forums here too.

This ap was recommended to me by a personal trainer so I was excited to get stuck in!! Hopefully once I get into the swing of it I will figure out the best way to communicate with other members!

Btw... feel free to message me to introduce yourself!! ;) :) 8-)

PS. Matt, how did you get your profile pic up?? :?

From the drop-down menu next to your name, top-right, choose "Profile". Then "Edit Profile", and you should be able to upload a picture on the "Edit Avatar" tab. Let me know if you have any problems!

Cheers,
