2017-01-11 - Happy belated New Year

randy freepJust because the New Year has started and your resolutions have not, don't let your head trick you into the idea that because you missed making some positive changes to your life by a few days that it's too late to do so! Every day of the year is a good day to set goals and commit to positive changes and if you falter along the way, every day is a good day to start over and re-commit yourself! Nothing good comes easy, never ever give up hope; the rewards along the way will be worth all the effort.

Remember, today is the first day of the rest of your running life,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who believes that New Years resolutions can lead us to be better at running ... and everything else in life. That said, I still need to get mine started ... I will today!

2017-01-04 - Run... or jump out of a plane

randy freepLife can be tough, even when things seem to be going well. Post-holiday depression is a real thing but just the stress from day to day life can lead to midlife crisis or at least put our mood into a funky dark hole. Yikes! What's the answer? I don't know for sure but I'd bet something as simple as a bucket list can make a difference. What to put in there? My vote is for a half marathon, marathon, triathlon, ultra-marathon, whichever seems the least impossible to do (What did you expect?) Worst case scenario, you will get a clean T-shirt to wear after you finish each of them! Where to start? Go to rfevents.com/calendar and load up your bucket, if not, maybe you could buy a Harley, learn to pole dance or jump out of a plane!

Get out for a head clearing run,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who is planning to run away from my problems!
