2017-04-12 - Share the gift of running

randy coldsunnyOur running is a gift, a tool for coping with the world when things get ugly. That said, when it comes to our running, we need to be careful to not keep it on a pedestal, never beating ourselves up about how our run went. We set goals, sometimes we hit them and sometimes we blow them but it's important to remember that running is what we do for fun and to escape. There is never a time to get overly upset about our performance, we win no matter how our run goes. The run itself is our success. When we line up to start a race or make our way out the door for our daily run, that is enough of a reward. Anything above this should leave us humbled. How to repay the running gift? Share it, invite a sedentary friend out the door, even for a walk... then pick up the pace, ha! Seriously, you can be the inspiration. Another way to give back to the sport is to volunteer at an event and make it possible for others to experience the success we get with every run!

Share your gift today,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner... Who will be working the Martian Invasion of Races next week and would love to have you join me to make it a success. Click this volunteer link, or come and run... either way, we win!

2017-04-05 - A Midsummer Night's Dream Run

randy oberunSo, what's the connection between runners and Shakespeare... besides that some of us wear tights? How about a run in honor of the fairy king Oberon, where we shall race around the forests, glades and orchards as we party on a Midsummer night. Any excuse for a run and a party! may I introduce, The Oberun 5K, a run or walk surrounded by live music, games, a bonfire, merriment and yes, a Bell's Brewery sponsored beer garden that will be serving Oberon! The creative crew here at RF Events continues to amaze me with ideas that go from fun ideas to reality. It may seem like magic but it's a complex, detail oriented process that is a labor of love that comes from the creative passion of what they do. I look forward to what I'm sure will be a sweaty, fun, magical night to remember. I'll see you at the party!

To run or not to run? Let's run!

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner looks forward to the magic that can come when Michigan small businesses come together around a run. Thank you Bell's Brewery, Wiard's Orchard, RF Events and our charity partner http://www.karenstrail.org/ This will be the perfect event to trick ... I mean talk, your non-running friends into. Walkers welcome!
