Philly 10K Registration: Easy peasy lemon squeasy

Philly10KYesterday morning, when the Philly 10K – a local race on it’s way to a second straight sellout in their second year – ran into some trouble with a huge registration demand, we were excited to be able to jump in at the last minute to get them back up and running. While we’re a distributed team, our headquarters is just outside Philadelphia, and several of our employees call Philly home. There is just something extra-special about the opportunity to help a hometown race out of a jam.

Also really cool?  Watching the flood of social media posts commenting on how smooth registration was.  As a tech company, we often don’t hear from users until something doesn’t work, so it’s really rewarding to see so much great runner feedback.

Easy peasy lemon squeasy might be our favorite, but just for good measure:
