2017-02-22 - Run, sun, fun

randy flowersWith this break from winter weather, getting ready for a spring event sure got easier! The Martian Invasion of Races in Dearborn is exactly 2 months away on April 22nd, 2017. This link will give you a training schedule to take you from zero to 10K, commit today while the early entry fee is low. If your long run is 8 miles this weekend, you can be ready for the Martian Half Marathon following the linked schedule!

On another note, I'm very excited that I will be introducing the films at the international trail running film festival, "Trails in Motion", at the Frmington Civic Theater on Saturday afternoon, March 25th. 2 hours of amazing cinematography, inspiration and motivation. We'll invade the brewpubs and bars in town after the films. There will also be an optional trail run beforehand. Less than 200 seats left, grab a couple and share this rare opportunity for the running community to get together outside of a race setting. Check out the trailer and sign up at this link!

Enjoy all this running life brings your way,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who is ready to sit back like a couch potato for a couple hours watching running movies... After my run!

PS: If you haven't taken a spin on the Potawatomi Trail in Pinckney, MI we highly suggest you do... on April 29th and 30th for the 31st Annual Trail Marathon Weekend! Road Ends 5 Mile, Trail Half and Full Marathon and 50K! You're in for a trail treat with this one! trailmarathon.com

2017-02-15 - Hope springs eternal

freep2The weather sucks but we just have to ignore it and get out the door ... like we always do! Work, money, power and war are similar to bad weather but once again, when we head out for a run, we find true peace in the moment. The gray sky seems not so gray and the nonsense of the world takes a back seat. What does this prove? Perhaps the run is the important part of our life and the rest is the nonsense we should strive to escape. The world may never be at peace and the sun may not come out for months but we can be out running and living a fulfilling, fun life in the moment... Winning the cold war! Ha!

The run can be the sun, get out and enjoy it,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner, putting up the good fight

PS: I am so excited to have the Trails in Motion trail running film festival back in Michigan! I guarantee a beautifully produced motivational afternoon at the Farmington Civic Theater, a Michigan gem! I will introduce the films and after we will be headed to the brew pub next door, join me! Only 270 seats available, grab a couple! Check out the trailer!
