January 9, 2008 - 2007 was my year for holes.

Yo run gang,

Thought: When you keep a running log, you get to run twice! Especially nice on the days that the run goes well, you experience something beautiful or set a personal record. Recording the texture and details of such a run will add to your running life, again! OK, the New Year is underway and I've beat the log theme to death, enough.

Holes: 2007 was my year for holes. I broke a toe in June and by cutting a hole in all my running shoes, I was able to run pretty much pain free during the 5 months it took until I could finally put on a shoe without a hole. November in Barbados, I ended up with a blister after a couple long hot races. Taking a serrated steak knife I cut a round hole in the heal of my Nike Air Zoom Elites just a bit bigger than the blister. I headed out the door pain free and healing quickly! I felt no effect on the shoes performance; perhaps I'll cut a few more holes and lighten them up. For your next foot problem, consider going under the knife!

On Saturday, put away the Yak Tracks and come Yack on the Track! Open running from 6 AM to 11 AM, U of M indoor track, Ann Arbor. It will be worth the drive to run in shorts and hit the expo! Join us. Enter at www.runhealthystart.com.

Track Meet! After the open run action at U of M, there will be an open track meet. A great opportunity for students in middle school, high school and those of us out of school! A chance to get the feel of running in a full blown meet on a college track with accurate events and timing. Only $5 for kids to enter this priceless experience. Not fast, not to worry, event heats will be by pace. 60, 200, 400, 800, 1600 and 2300 Meters, along with several relays so grab the team! Enter at the door after 11 AM or online.

Get out and run! Randy Step

Head Goat and Obsessed Runner

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!
