If it was easy...

randy holiday5kWe don't run because it's easy, we run because we get it. Those who don't get it joke that the only time you would catch them running would be to the refrigerator or from a grizzly bear but never to just get in a run. As we layer up and head out on a snowy day with an icy headwind, our neighbors are sure to be shaking their heads and wondering if we have lost our sanity, especially if we crack a smile... a smile that comes because we understand that the reality is a run like this is saving our sanity, and yes, can be just plain fun.

Laugh at the weather and get in some miles,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner, laughing all the way.

2017-12-06 - Not a time to be a running hero

randy ecuador200From Turkey day to New Year's Day, our daily run is getting attacked from all sides, from endless parties and treats, finding time to shop, bad footing, wind, cold, short and dark days. Yikes! This is no time for running heroics and goals that may be doomed to fail, it's time to hunker down and just commit to the basics. Promise yourself to just get out the door for a minimum number of days for a minimum number of miles, something realistic, just enough to take in some fresh air and jiggle the fat. We can come back in January without too much erosion of our base, ready to ramp up to greatness!

Run off what you can today, we'll burn the rest in January!

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner, sharing what for me are rare, realistic thoughts about the daily run. Dang.

PS: HO, HO, GO! There is one last chance to run with us in 2017. Join us Saturday evening, December 9, 2017 at the Holiday Hustle 5K and 1 Mile in Dexter, MI! A festive fun run full of flashing flare and jingle bells you wont want to miss... Online registration closes tomorrow, December 7 at NOON!

PS: We're ramping up your 2018 running year over here at RF Events. Most recently opened? Our grooviest race of all! Join us for 3 days of peace, music and running at Run Woodstock on September 7, 8 & 9, 2018. Distances from 5 Miles to 100. Campsites are going fast so get in while the getting is good... and start the training in January ;). PEACE, MAN!
