2020.05.14 - In a Funk

randy dirtshirtFrom social media posts it looks like runners are falling into three groups, those who are running more miles than they have in years due to covid restrictions, those who are in a low mileage funk, or funk in life in general, then there are runners who fall on and off the running wagon, trying to be positive but perhaps crashing motivationally as new restrictions come up. For sure, those of us training for a future event that is uncertain have had the wind taken out of our sails so often have now lost that tool in our get our butt out the door box. I know many of you are streaking along with us in the Head Goat 50K in May and that sure is helping to get in some miles knowing we are not in this alone. RF Events will launch a new challenge for June, consider joining us, especially if you are in the last two camps, in a funk or in and out of a funk. The challenge will be announced soon and because it come from a group of runners who are experts in event motivation and goal setting, it is sure to be creative, fun and motivating (Seriously... we are all excited to participate ourselves- IT IS AWESOME)! Some good news, the covid numbers in Michigan are way down, even with increased testing, the percentage of positive cases is in the single digits for the past 7 days, down from the 30% positive test days.


Laugh at the weather and get out that door,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who is waiting for the full force of today's rain to be falling before heading out, because ... Why not

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.

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!
