2018-09-19 - Surround yourself with runners

randy bridgesTo enrich your running life and to ensure your motivation, might I suggest that you surround yourself with runners. For sure you want to have all medical professionals in your life to be runners, that is, your doctor, dentist, ob/gyn etc. They will understand they are dealing with a runners body and will have insights that others might misdiagnose. This is a good spot for a shameless plug for John Farrah my dentist, and my Doc, David Bach, both in Ann Arbor. For hair care, how can you beat talking running with your stylist? Nichole Minor at the new Zev Salon, conveniently located next to Running Fit at 5700 Jackson Rd., Ann Arbor! Talk running, get motivated and then shop... how can you beat it! Seriously, if your insurance agents, realtors, financial planners and all the people you deal with on a daily basis are runners, you will have the support and understanding you deserve... and up your chances of running out the door for a lifetime!

Live, love, run,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who puts his faith in those who run!

PS: To keep a balanced life, consider a bit of strength and yoga... Another shameless plug! My running friend Tod opened SPENGA in Ann Arbor, a 60 minute workout that combines 20 minutes of spin, 20 minutes of strength, and 20 minutes of yoga! The perfect way to stay injury free and balance out your running life.

PS: The temps are finally dropping and you know what that means... fall is on its way! Join us at one of our FALL FAVORITES!
