Welcome to Next Step Running

"The race is not always to the swift, but to those who keep on running." Unknown

I am a runner and 2021 and a new age group have given me the desire to renew my focus on running. Even though I started running on September 1st, 1966, I love running as much now, if not more, than I did then. I do feel like I still have more to accomplish as a runner and to give back to the running community.

To that end, as I rebuild this site from its simple beginnings in 2003 as a mid school running club resource site (the "About" page is somewhat like the original site), I will provide running updates, information, resources and tools for you to accomplish your goals and love running as much as I do.

Running Updates, Information, Resources and Tools

Polar Heart Rate Monitors for Running

A high-quality GPS watch is one of the essential tools any athlete needs to improve running performance. Polar’s GPS running watches don’t only measure your heart rate and calculate your running pace and distance automatically – they’re packed with smart features that help you see your progress and stay motivated. All you need to take care of is the best part: the hard work itself. Shop now for great deals on Amazon.

Running on Social Media

I scan Google News daily and post links to my Next Step Running group on Facebook and to Howtobefit on Twitter. In addition, for accountability, I use the Next Step Running app. Click on the link and I will send you an invitation to join.

Running On Strava

I've been using Strava for almost six years. If you would like to follow each other, click here. My Team Howtobefit on Strava is a multidiscipline club that I also invite you to join.
