randy freepWhen I say I am an admitted obsessed runner, it doesn't necessarily mean I run as much as others I know, or as fast. Actually, because of my passion for everything running, I may actually be a bit conservative with my personal running knowing that overuse injuries can stop me from my daily run, a painful reality I have learned over my 40 years as a runner. I also make family a priority ahead of my running, knowing that my life without them would be a life without joy, including my running life. That said, I have made running a major focus, from starting running clubs, opening a chain of running stores (Running Fit),starting RF Events which produces 26 annual runs, (like Dances With Dirt, Run Woodstock and The Martian Invasion of Races) that keep me busy around the clock half the weekends of the year... Not to mention, running in races most other weekends. So yes, almost every aspect of my daily life including most thoughts and dreams make me an admitted obsessed runner.

Run smart, run forever,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who gets to spend most of my day surrounded by the creative,  passionate runners on staff at RF Events, runners that work hard all year to create the kind of events  that will keep our passion alive.
