2019-03-07 - SUCK IT, Winter!

anna winterBaby Goat here... The Head Goat is out of town and I've gone ROGUE!

Let's face it, people, this winter is never going to end! I'm cold, I'm tired, and I do not want to get my butt out the door! I'm tired of washing my running jackets, I'm tired of hunting for the perfect hat for the specific temperature of the day, I'm tired of wet socks... So you know what winter, SUCK IT!

Let me explain to you what I just did there... When I was a high school runner I invented a little game called "1, 2, 3, complain." The concept was very simple, on those days I just didn't want to do it, I would say "1, 2, 3, COMPLAIN" and spend the first minute or so of my run complaining out loud. So put your shoes on and get your butt out the door, start your run by shouting about all the things you're sick of... maybe even throw in a SUCK IT, WINTER! It will get you giggling, you'll have gotten all that nonsense off your chest and you're already through the hardest few minutes of your run.

Dig all your winter gear out and get out the door,

Baby Goat, an admittedly (not quite as) obsessed runner... who can't wait to tell winter how I really feel tonight!

At RF Events, we are looking forward to the day when we'll be able to host races in person for you again! Getting all of our faithful participants back to the racing world SAFELY is our highest priority. Over the previous couple of months, a dedicated safety team was created and is working diligently to come up with the best plan to keep all our racers, volunteers and staff safe. We are consistently keeping up to date with the CDC guidelines as well as the state, county and city guidelines for the location of each individual race. To see a link to a broad outline of what we're working on and continuing to update, click here. This is a fluid situation that continues to change so we will keep updating our plan as warranted. We want to be sure to let you know that we're working on it and looking forward to seeing you at a starting line soon!
