2017-08-30 - Get out there!

randy hippieWhile most of the world spends on average more than 23 hours of each day indoors or in a vehicle, not physically or mentally healthy places to be, We are blessed as runners to spend so much quality time outdoors, dig it. We smell and feel the changing of the seasons, the weather patterns, the rain, the sun, cool shade and the wind on our skin. We are aware of the natural world and know we a part of it, we are truly awake and alive, not trapped in the endless funky haze so much of the indoor world slips into. Today's morning run was in a mystical fog, a humid, wet feel that seemed to lick the skin...amazing.

Don't miss a single chance to run out there,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner looking forward to a healing weekend in the woods in just over a week at Run Woodstock.

2017-08-24 - A time to reap, a time to sow

randy flowersWe run our long runs for the training effect that prepares our bodies for even longer runs. The early miles of the long run are often mindless and easy but eventually, the hurt kicks in, usually, suddenly. This is the time to smile, this is what we came for! The long run is finally doing its job. It's time, concentrate and savor the pain, these are the miles that count, dig it! Had we stopped when the hurt kicked in, where would that get us?

Bring it on!

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner who has to admit, that pain free, shorter runs are not overrated ...
