Well, I have almost reached the end of my first week of being fully launched on the inter web. Scary stuff. I have not made it this far alone and have lots of people to thank for helping me get this far in this exciting journey. Firstly there's my long suffering husband, who I wish to thank for his tolerance and patience (all those nights of listening me muttering and sometimes swearing at the computer and rambling on about maps). I genuinely appreciate all the support you have given me over these last few months, I couldn't have done it without you.
My girls have also been amazing; Millie has sacrificed her room/personal space on many evenings to let me use the computer (which is a big deal to any teenager) and again put up with my mutterings and Eva has come up with many fabulous ideas for logos and for events (my particular favourite idea is for me to do guided running tours of York being accompanied by Eva on her bike. Eva will create a soundtrack of motivational songs for the route to play on the "boring" bits - her words, not mine).
My dad has been a great support - he is my running inspiration and mentor and has got many brilliant ideas for the future of See York Run York. I also owe my dad for creating the company name.
Huge thanks go out to my fabulous sisters, my mum, stepmum, Sandra, stepdad, Steve and my grandad, for all of their creative input, feedback and general encouragement (thanks also for putting up with my constant messaging due to my complete indecisiveness, about such things as the colour of my home page - I know debating the various shades of aqua is not a riveting way to spend an evening).
A bit shout out to Adam at Total Creations for creating my stunning logo. I love it. Thank you.
Finally, thanks to all my wonderful friends for liking and sharing my various social media pages and posts and for getting word out to the world about my site.
I truly appreciate all everyone has done for me to get me where I am today. I know it is still early days and I have a long way to go but I feel extremely blessed to be surrounded by such supporting, loving folk. Thank you.
PS: if you look at the word "thank" as long as I have to find the best picture for this post, it starts to look a bit weird (just like the word "much" does) - I will leave you with that thought!
