2011-11-30 - Take a Break...

December 1st, what many of us consider the official start of the off season, a time to lick the wounds and give the body a break. On February 1st, we'll come back rested and ready to crank on all cylinders! We don't quit running for two months, heck no, we just dial back, skipping days and keeping the intensity low. No long or hard workouts, no sweating the weekly mileage and no serious racing. A time for some fun races like the Holiday Hustle 5K on Saturday at 4:30 PM, races where we dress up, enjoy a romp with friends though the cool evening air and leave the watch at home. Runholiday5k.com. Ha, OK, maybe the off season starts on Sunday ...

With less time off the road, we'll finally have time to shop for new running stuff! See you at the serious sale this weekend at Running Fit!

Run, rest, run,

Randy Step, an obsessed runner, about to dial down a notch...



PS: Just a heads up, Bayshore opens registration tomorrow, December 1st, and all events will fill in a few hours, YIKES!


PS: Fire up the Kids to run the Martian Kid's Marathon! 
Bring 'em to the mile at Dexter's Holiday Hustle on Dec 3!
Naughty or nice, walker or runner, come breathe in the December night air and give back to others. A silly, hilly out and back course that will take in the neighborhood light displays and give you a chance to see the flashing gang ahead or behind you!

Flashing gang? Yes! Register early and the first 500 get a choice of some flashing or jingling flare (to be picked up at packet pick up).

This charity event donates $5 of your entry fee to local Dexter charities. Bring canned or non perishable food items for the needy and get a raffle ticket for each item! Raffle items from Running Fit to include 2 $50 gift cards, 4 $25 gift cards, gloves, hats, bags and more!
