2017-12-06 - Not a time to be a running hero

randy ecuador200From Turkey day to New Year's Day, our daily run is getting attacked from all sides, from endless parties and treats, finding time to shop, bad footing, wind, cold, short and dark days. Yikes! This is no time for running heroics and goals that may be doomed to fail, it's time to hunker down and just commit to the basics. Promise yourself to just get out the door for a minimum number of days for a minimum number of miles, something realistic, just enough to take in some fresh air and jiggle the fat. We can come back in January without too much erosion of our base, ready to ramp up to greatness!

Run off what you can today, we'll burn the rest in January!

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner, sharing what for me are rare, realistic thoughts about the daily run. Dang.

PS: HO, HO, GO! There is one last chance to run with us in 2017. Join us Saturday evening, December 9, 2017 at the Holiday Hustle 5K and 1 Mile in Dexter, MI! A festive fun run full of flashing flare and jingle bells you wont want to miss... Online registration closes tomorrow, December 7 at NOON!

PS: We're ramping up your 2018 running year over here at RF Events. Most recently opened? Our grooviest race of all!

Campsites are going fast so get in while the getting is good... and start the training in January ;). PEACE, MAN!

2017-11-29 - The daily run will get you there

randy ecuador200I'm writing this by a roaring fire in a hostel perched at 13,000 ft on the rim of a volcano in Ecuador. Yesterday's 8 mile trek with 3,700 ft of climb got me here, made possible by my daily run. Our daily run will insure a fitness level that will prepare us for adventure when the opportunity arises. What I am experiencing while I trek through the Andes is not accessible to the average sedentary American. Another thought... the running lifestyle, finds us at times changing in our cars, or relieving ourselves in the facilitrees, these aspects of our play prepare us for adventure travel.

Today's run will take you far,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner ... Who is actually "running" very little this week, ha!
