October 8, 2008 - Coming off a fall marathon and feeling beat up.

Yo Run Gang,

This running life Coming off a fall marathon and feeling beat up. Anticipation, worry, focus and accomplishment followed by post event depression. The answer to this is a new goal, time to start training and planning for another event. Savor the pain and move on. You worked hard to feel this bad! As I say all the time, you get to experience the true highs and lows of life, not that numb middle of the road, couch potato, comatose haze of constant blahhh. You know the full range of what life has to offer. Enjoy the ride!

The chill is in the air. Now is the time to commit to a winter of getting out the door consistently and putting in the miles. One of the reasons we run is that it is simple and requires hardly anything. Yes winter requires a few more layers, but in the grand scheme of sports, winter running is still as basic as it gets. A synthetic base layer next to the skin to wick away moisture, (staying dry is staying warm) covered by a micro fiber vented shell to stop the wind. Add to that, hats, mitts, some traction control for the shoes, head lamp and reflective vest. (Did I mention its always dark) The winter gear is just trickling in at Running Fit. A fun time to shop for the few but essential pieces of the winter puzzle. We have some serious tech clothing geeks on staff that love to tell you what they wear and will steer you right.

Bring on what ever; well be ready to run.

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.
