As I’m sure the regulars have figured out, I’m mostly interested in building a site that will be useful to you. I want to build what you want and need to make the most of your running, whatever your goals.
In the past, I’ve always done that by asking what tools would help me make the most of my running. Some generous people have helped me along the way with requests or suggestions but it’s been largely myself just deciding what would be helpful.
I want to change that. I realize that I don’t always know what other runners want and I don’t want to guess anymore. So I created a simple survey to get some input on what you think of the site. The questions are basic right now but they will give me a feel for what you use, what you would like to see improved and what ideas I may have not thought of for what to add to HillRunner.com.
You will also notice a couple of questions pertaining to a new addition to HillRunner.com that I plan to make available in the first half of this year. Some of you have asked for more involved offerings, some of you have asked if there is a way to financially support HillRunner.com without signing up for coaching. I believe this new offering, Club HillRunner.com, will accomplish both. Because it takes time and money to produce the more involved offerings, it will be a paid offering but I believe the price will be very reasonable for what you will receive. If you do want to help the site financially, this will be your way to do so and get something for your investment.
The survey take less than 5 minutes and results are completely anonymous. I will take your responses very seriously and prioritize my work according to the results. I will also keep your responses at the forefront of my mind as I work on the new Club HillRunner.com.
One more time, here is the link to the survey. I hope you can take it and help me help you by building the best HillRunner.com possible.
