News from RUNOHIO - June 2011

on 02 June 2011.

The past month has been busy and tough for me.  The first weekend of May I went to the hospital and spent two days. Everything with me is ok.  But on the same weekend I was in the hospital the May/June print issue was being laid out and taken to the printer.  Luckily, I had already sent in all of the information to my layout person, but I was not able to check the issue before it went to the printer.

June /2011

Dear Matt,

 

The past month has been busy and tough for me.  The first weekend of May I went to the hospital and spent two days. Everything with me is ok.  But on the same weekend I was in the hospital the May/June print issue was being laid out and taken to the printer.  Luckily, I had already sent in all of the information to my layout person, but I was not able to check the issue before it went to the printer.  The worst thing which happened that weekend was the RUNOHIO site crashed.  My web guy, Chuck Bartlett, called me at the hospital to let me know of the problem but said he had everything backed up.   The next day he called me and told me he tried to use the back up information and redo the RUNOHIO web site but the backup information was also lost.  So we are in the process of rebuilding the site - www.runohio.com. 

 

I also coach high school track and field and spent a number of days at our league meet, the District Championships and Regional Championships and will be at the State meet this weekend.

 

Good luck with your summer training and racing.

 

Matt McGowan
