2019-09-18 - Runners are not bullet proof

randy flowersRunning may not add years to our life but it does add life to our years. The physical and mental benefits are many, and I feel finding our way into this running life is a gift. All that said, a recent heart attack death of a 54 year old woman after a work-out was a harsh reminder that we need to take the time to do the health screening that looks for any hidden medical issues that might put our active lives at risk. I've always said, stress tests are a pretty cool workout! A chance to take ourselves to the edge of collapse and to gain some confidence in our ticker's well-being.
 
If you haven't, get 'er checked!
 
Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner is proud of all of you, and worry about all of you.

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!
