2019-01-31 - Sneak in some miles

randy flowersAfter a couple of days of YIKES weather, It looks like we're in for a bit of a break this weekend.  I always say, run smart but don't let the weather get in the way of your run, dress for it and adjust the distance or course to make it safe. That said, when the weather, the schedule, or anything that makes the run go well is in your favor, sneak in some extra miles. Not only will you be adding some miles to the log you might have lost to bad days, but a bit of longer run, especially in winter, does wonders for our mood and self-esteem. The power of a good run can leave us with a smile that can lingers for days! Now for a shameless plug, how about joining us at the Super 5K on Sunday morning in Novi with predicted temps in the high 40's! Not only will you get a Super Pint glass and medal that will prove you earned your spot on the couch during the game, you also get a warm running beanie! Perhaps get in a mile warm up and a cool down to sneak in those precious extra miles!
When the going is good, keep going!
Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who understands the old farmer who makes hay while the sun shines, but also gets the point of, when going through hell, keep on going!

P.S.: Time to start thinking about your spring goals! Put our favorite spring tradition on your calendar, Trail Marathon Weekend! This Michigan classic is now in its 33rd year! Join us April 27th and 28th in Pinckney, MI for 5 Miles, 13.1 Miles, 26.2 Miles or 50K! Wooden medals to all finishers and cozy patch beanies to all entrants!

At RF Events, we are looking forward to the day when we'll be able to host races in person for you again! Getting all of our faithful participants back to the racing world SAFELY is our highest priority. Over the previous couple of months, a dedicated safety team was created and is working diligently to come up with the best plan to keep all our racers, volunteers and staff safe. We are consistently keeping up to date with the CDC guidelines as well as the state, county and city guidelines for the location of each individual race. To see a link to a broad outline of what we're working on and continuing to update, click here. This is a fluid situation that continues to change so we will keep updating our plan as warranted. We want to be sure to let you know that we're working on it and looking forward to seeing you at a starting line soon!
