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.

2017-10-25 - We fight back!

randy freepCold, wet, windy, dark days are a challenges to the daily run ... NOT! These are the kinds of days that light our internal fire. We thumb our nose at the weather and head out like conquering heroes. To heck with wimpy, sunny, mild fall runs, those nice days only get us so far. It's the days that fight back that leave us with a smug feeling of satisfaction and make us complete. We are the few, the proud, the running warriors excited to do battle with the supposedly big, bad, wet, cold days of November and zero days of winter, bring em' on!

Go get em',

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner with a pile of cold, wet, muddy running gear to prove it!
