2018-09-27 - You can only run too much

randy bridgesThe fall long run season is upon us! Many of us will be running marathons, half marathons, 10K's or whatever we each consider long in the next few weeks. Perhaps in Detroit, Chicago, Twin Cities, New York or some other exciting location! Now is not the time to cram for the exam. Now is the time to get into our heads that there is no such thing as being under trained. Schedules we follow are only rough guidelines, we all get in the miles we can based on what life puts in our way. The training we get in is only a part of the equation. Some of us will do all the work before race day, some of us will do most of the work on race day. The important thing is our determination to finish. Time to avoid negative people and negative thoughts, the adventure awaits! When things get tough, smile and remember this is what we do for fun! You can finish your race with a lot less training than you think as long as you are rested and healthy. Less might be more at this point, finish up your training by running smart.

Get excited and smile,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner, who admits I wrote this to remind myself that the miles I ran to get ready are all the miles I need to finish, no matter how few those training miles may seem!

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!
