2017-12-13 - The little things... are the big things

anna winterBaby Goat STEPping in today to help get your butt out the door!

Winter has settled in here across Michigan and getting myself out the door for the daily run has reached peak difficulty. I don't know about you, but for me the little things ARE the big things. If I can't find a pair of running pants I like or there aren't any clean socks... there is a 97% chance my run is not going to happen. Let's make the daily run easier on ourselves by knocking out the little obstacles. Get the laundry done, make piles of running outfits you love for the entire week, line the shoes up at the door with the laces UNTIED and get the phone out to make running plans with your friends. Hey, it still might not work... but a clear path to that door is sure going to make it easier to get out of it!

Knock out those little obstacles,

Baby Goat, a not quite as obsessed runner who is headed home to throw my beloved Balegas in the laundry so I might have a chance to make it out the door this week!

PS: I love taking over the midweek because I get to shamelessly plug MY favorite events! Join me and all my trail loving friends at the 32nd running of Trail Weekend on April 28th and 29th, 2018. Try 5 miles, 13.1 miles, 26.2 miles or 50K on Potawatomi Trail in Pinckney, MI! If you're not already obsessed with running around in the woods... you will be after this one!

PS: BEER! Do I have your attention? The Hightail to Ale 5K is back for 5 YEARS OF CHEERS on May 11, 2017! I love this beautiful 5K course on the riverfront in Detroit... and who doesn't love FINISHER BEER?
