January 27, 2010 - This Obsessed Runner is in South Africa.

Yo run gang,

There is no better way to experience a country than to run its roads and trails. This Obsessed Runner is in South Africa today, running in the summer sun. Old news, a year ago Running Fit won the Ubuntu award for being the most humanitarian and giving running store in the world. In actuality, the award is yours, your support of Running Fit and our events made it possible. Click here to read more about the Ubuntu award! This trip is a part of the award. I was finally able to fit it into lifes busy schedule and when I return, Ill post photos and share my experience on the Running Fit Facebook Fan page.

To help make the world a better place, join Running Fit as we support international development by hosting a drop box from IICD Michigan. Drop by clothes, shoes, toys, books, and small household items at the 5700 Jackson store. These donations are resold by IICD Michigan (www.iicdmichigan.org), enabling them to train approx. 90 people a year in western Michigan. These people go on to do educational development work in southern Africa, Belize and Brazil (HIV education, teacher training, empowering families to pull themselves out of poverty). If you would like more information about IICD, or a tax receipt for a donation you make, please contact Mike Day at This email address is being protected from spambots.

On Friday, I plan to visit the AIDs clinic in Johannesburg, South Africa, to see the work the IICD is doing first hand.

Share running with the world,

Randy Step, an obsessed runner who is truly blessed, and on this great adventure because of you, thank you.
