2018-03-07 - Timing is Everything

randy freepTime, distance and pace are highly motivational aspects of our sport. How fast we are is not relevant, it's our personal understanding of the work we have done to cover the distance we ran in the time it took us. Not just physical effort but also the mental effort, from our courage to start to the will power to be consistent, doing something most people look at as punishment or even torture. Only the runner understands all that our sport gives back to us and how we can find joy in it.

May we have the courage to continue running forever,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who has found joy in running and is excited for the Trails in Motion Film Festival this Saturday!

PS: When we cross a finish line, only we can fully appreciate our finish time... but that's not completely true, the timing crew here at RF Events uses their expertise and cutting edge technology to make sure your time is as close to exact as possible. I'd like to give a shout out to our timing crew, who continually come up with new and creative ways to get you your results in real time. From scrolling results on a flat screen, to text messaging a full analysis of your pace, and both overall and age group place when you finish. If you are, or ever get involved in putting on an event, consider RF Event Services to impress your participants.

PS: Our timing team is hiring! Looking for a part time (weekend mornings) gig that allows you to experience the Michigan Running Culture every weekend? Are you a tech savvy runner? Know SQL? This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
