Virtual Run World is One Year Old!
Thank you, thank you and thank you. Thanks to the many virtual runners for supporting us in our first year. We launched Virtual Run World one year and one day ago and what an amazing ride it has been. Almost as good as Toy Story Mania in Disney World. Does this make it our first year anniversary or first birthday? We celebrated it as our one year anniversary yesterday, but I would like to say it is our first birthday. Yesterday, during our celebration I told the restaurant it was my birthday. It was my way to legitimize my excuse for the chocolate cake I ordered and having the waiters and waitress’ singing me a happy, happy birthday song. Terri says, it is an anniversary, because she does not have a craving for chocolate cake. Silly girl.
With your amazing support this last year, we have been able to help so many people in so many ways. Thanks for motivating us and others to run and get moving. Thank you for supporting our medal designs.
What are our plans for the future? Here is what we are doing for you and what we can do together in addition to what we already are accomplishing.
In celebration of our first anniversary, or as I like to call it, my birthday, we are offering a Magical Medal Mystery Giveaway. What is that you ponder? This is one of our medals personally signed by a real Disney character. This will be accomplished with the help of Princess Sophia, who lives near Disney World. Who is the Disney character and what medal will it be? That is the mystery. Of course, you could alternately choose to win any Virtual Run World new medal not yet announced or an existing medal from our inventory.
Medals – more and more medals. We hope to have at least one new medal a month in 2015. We will make them big enough for personal defense. We will also produce some guy medals to encourage some of our male runners who have been eating entirely too much chocolate cake. We currently have three medal designs in the works in a variety of themes. The next medal should be announced soon.
We would like you to join our team #virtualrunworld on Charity Miles. With every mile you run some rich generous corporation will donate .25 cents to the charity of your choice. We just learned of the site through our adopted daughter. We call her adopted, but she really belongs to our good friends, who came by her naturally. We ran 8.5 miles the other night (a chilly 15 F) to test out this very simple and easy to use program. We researched the program, like what we found and want to support it. We wish you also would support it and invite you to join our team. This will also force us to run more, even if its cold, because you can see our miles and lack of training.
We will also be increasing content on Virtual Run World in our Real Run World tab with information inspired by you to include runDisney tips and great food and nutrition ideas. Is there something you would like to see? Please share.
What else? I have no idea, we are just winging it right now. We are enjoying the ride, even though this Virtual Run World dream project takes all our time and resources. I will not even mention the computer website techie worm holes that we must travel through to bring medals to the world. Thank you again for sharing your stories, motivating and supporting us in our venture.
