2017-03-01 - Yesterday, I blew off the run

randy flowersI felt kind of off yesterday so I blew off the run. Today, I started my day with the same blah feeling but decided to get out there and see if the run might change things up. It was a tough run with low energy, shortness of breath and it never got better. Feeling bummed out, I cut it short and jumped back into my work day where I immediately got swallowed up with the regular growing to-do list. About an hour in I took a break to get out my lunch and it occurred to me that I felt great, no blah to be found! Dang, the run worked and just like with many drugs, it takes a while to get into the system to do its work!

Never doubt the run,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner that finds more reasons to admit it with every run

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,
