randy coldsunnyI can relate to the Ancient Druids who supposedly drew their energy from direct contact with the earth, the dirt. A couple days away from the woods and I seem to become weak, tired and foggy, like a near-dead battery. It's not like I want to run trails, I NEED to run trails. We spend much of our lives in temperature controlled buildings and cars, re-breathing air that contains who knows what, while walking on man-made surfaces, yikes! I've heard runners say, "but I don't live near a trail". The truth is that if you look, you can find trails just about everywhere, if not out your door, then at least on the way to where you head daily. Seek, and you shall find, sanity and your legs will love you for it. Friends don't let friends put in all their miles on pavement! Make this the year to train on dirt and race on dirt!

Run wild forever,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed trail runner who hopes you're joining me this weekend for the 31st annual Trail race weekend ... Or, June 3rd in Novi for the Flirt With Dirt, 5K, 10K (Yep, gnarly trails in the land of Malls and Mansions!) or August 5th at The Legend 5 mile, 10 mile and 13.1 mile just north of Lansing. If not these events, than for sure at Run Woodstock, a healing weekend in the woods September 8, 9 and 10, 2017. Last but not least, perhaps a road trip to a Dances With Dirt! Get all the DIRT here!

PS: We are now accepting volunteers for Flirt With Dirt! Check out all of our awesome volunteer opportunities HERE! RF Events volunteers receive fun volunteer swag, a $30 voucher towards a future event and MORE!
