Yo run gang,
YIKES! It's the feeling I get when race day draws near, for every race, no matter how important or insignificant the event is to me. Even after all these years, the nervous jitters attack! Many of you will be experiencing the same feelings this weekend as you line up for one of the events at the Martian Invasion on Saturday or the Big House Big Heart on Sunday.
Randy Step, an obsessed runner who continues to make strides against irrational pre race feelings ... More work to do.
PS: Check out martianmarathon.com and bighousebigheart.com, it's too late to enter online but both events offer late registration at their great pre race expos along with great shopping deals! Just think of all the stress you missed by not entering until now!
Run forever, --Randy Step, an obsessed runner

Info and Registration
I always get a kick out of runners who take to the streets and seem to bloom like wildflowers on the first nice weather days. For those of us who have kept our winter outdoor running vigil alive through sleet, gale force wind, snow and dark of night, we can secretly smile with a smug feeling of superiority and satisfaction as we wave and say hello. Ha!
The truth is, what we put into and take from our running is very personal and we don't really know what that new runner we see out there is experiencing. Perhaps they are taking those first brave and nervous steps into the fitness world and that are about to get the satisfaction we all got that time we finally got up the courage to start! Bravo and a high five to all! Runners Rock!
Please join us on April 2nd at the Martian Invasion of Races as we cheer each other on, fulfilling our personal goals, be they finishing a run/walk through our first 5K or a personal best marathon. We will party together at the finish line as one big happy fitness community, planting the seeds in the sedentary world who watch and stand in awe of us all! Enter at martianmarathon.com
May you run forever,
Randy Step, and obsessed runner and Alien at heart, Nanu, Nanu!
