2017-11-08 - Time to dial down

randy freepAfter the New York City Marathon, the last of the big fall events, many of us consider this the official start of the off season, a time to lick the wounds and give the body a break. On February 1st, we'll come back rested and ready to crank on all cylinders! We don't quit running for a few months, heck no, we just dial back, skipping days and keeping the intensity low. No long or hard workouts, no sweating the weekly mileage and no serious racing. A time for some fun holiday Turkey, Hustle races, just don't take them seriously, enjoy! A couple extra pounds will keep us warm, right?

Run, rest, run

Randy Step, an obsessed runner who can't wait for some holiday run fun.

2017-11-01 - Don't let this day get away

randy freepThis wonderful life can turn south on a dime. One day you run a P.R., the next you can lose a job, be diagnosed with a wicked disease or get injured in an accident. No, I have not had anything tragic happen in my life lately but I'm throwing out a reminder of why every healthy day is a gift and should be cherished. Lace em' up, get outside and live life to the max. When the bad days come, we'll be ready to rest.

Amen,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who when caught up in the nonsense, minutia of this life, needs to be reminded to live fully today and to focus only on what is precious ... Like today's run.
