2020.07.01 - Run smart, run cool

randy bridgesRare for Michigan, the weather predicts a couple warm weeks in a row. It helps if you can get out early or late in the day. For sure, shaded paths are the place to be. Yep, the flies and bugs are heavy on the trails but I ran long today with bug spray and fly tape on my hat and they become a non-issue. Once a fly is on the tape, all flies go to the tape, lemmings ... Just look for 'Tread Not' deerfly patches, made in Michigan! On another note, when you train for a race that is canceled, the miles are not wasted. Every mile you run becomes a part of who you are, not just the fitness aspect but the cumulative miles of a lifetime have taught you to handle and respect extremes like weather and pain, failure and success. Long miles prepare us for long term hardships and have taught us to be patient, knowing the joy will return.


Run smart, run cool, run with hope and never stop,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who knows my daily run is never wasted.

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!
