2019- 04-25 - Yes, you are a runner

randy flowersI just got back to running after 3 weeks off with a pain I had to work through. With every break in running I can't help but get a guilty feeling, like I'm a phony or loser ... Especially when I write the midweek run mail! Yes, this is ridiculous, I know I am a runner and setbacks are part of our sport and our lives. I will be a runner until death, even if I can't ever run another step. Be proud of yourself and your running, no matter what pace or how short or long or however many days you run in a year. You are a runner.
Run forever and ever, amen,
Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner ... who is very slow and is throwing in lots of walking, so there!

P.S.: The perfect plan for getting back into the swing of things is a FUN run/walk! Join us on Friday night, May 10 in Detroit, MI at Atwater Brewery for the Hightail to Ale 5K! Don't miss a beautiful run along the Detroit riverfront followed by a beer party including food trucks, cornhole and live music... Did we mention BEER?! Great custom shirt and pint glass to all entrants, sweet bottle opener medal and an Atwater Brewery beer to all finishers. The perfect jump back into this running life!

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!
