A little change on the forums

Realfoodieclub
RealfoodieclubHalf Marathon

I am stepping down as lead Admin on all my forums. (C25K, Bridge to 10km, Strength and Flex and Active 10) I will still be on the forums but as one of the community members. I am leaving you in very capable hands and I hope everyone on here will do their best to help ease any transition the admins see fit to implement to help with my departure from the team.

As some of you know MrRfc had a kidney transplant 2.5 years ago and woke up with a new lease of life and an energy he hadn’t had for years. I had forgotten what an energetic little sole he is and I have been trying to keep up with him 😀. The downside of that is that I have felt a little stretched on my time fitting everything in. I thought I could do it all but I have found to do things to the standard that I want I got burnt-out so I have made decision to pass on the lead admin baton and step down from my admin duties and spend some more time with my husband and the Bowls club we run together.

I have been immensely proud to of been part of all the forums as they grew. I will always carry a soft spot for all these forums. I have made good friends and received so much support over the years with my running, I still do not count myself as a good runner 😂, I still need help, which is why I will still be around, it will just be in a different capacity.

Please help the admins out as they make minor changes and bring in new people, they need your support at this delicate time. The forums need bigger admin teams to allow more structured time off and respite and I am sure you all want to help your admin team achieve this healthy balance so please be understanding of the changes that come, there might be a few less quests or what is your week as they find a balance and a good working environment. We are some the best communities going and I know you will all step up to the plate to help out now 🙂.

Happy running to you all 🏃‍♀️.

Health and happiness

You have been amazing Realfoodieclub, I, for one, will miss you, I know you'll still be here to some degree though so that's a relief....I am so glad Mr RFC has made such an excellent recovery and I hope you enjoy spending time together with him, sounds like the perfect excuse for stepping down! Thank you for all your hard work on the forums, the time you've give, the support and all the encouragement you give, it will always be remembered xx

You have been brilliant RFC. I remember your support early in my forum days, then reading your back story and thinking WOW! A well earned rest for sure - though I very much doubt you'll be resting. Enjoy! And know that your time and commitment have been VERY much appreciated. Very sincere thanks xxx
