January 2017 RUNOHIO E-Newsletter

on 11 January 2017.

The staff of RUNOHIO wishes you and your family a Happy, Safe and Healthy New Year!
 
 Hopefully, this winter you will be able to continue your running.
When you are making your New Year' Resolutions, I hope you will consider volunteering at a local road race. If possible, help to sponsor a local race or help a new runner understand proper training and your neighbor who might need some assistance. If we all do a few kind acts to help others who are nearby, I am sure 2017 will be a great year.
 
Have a Great New Year!!
 

Matt McGowan

Cold Weather Running Tips from the Road Runners Club of America

*Always follow the RRCA General Safety Guidelines
 *Leave the headphones at home. Your ears may help you avoid dangers your eyes cannot see. Wet, wintery conditions may weaken tree limbs causing them to fall. Hearing the crack before the fall may be the difference between avoiding a falling branch or being tackled by a dead limb.
 *Avoid running on the roads in snowy conditions. Drivers have a decreased ability to maneuver and stop.
