Vice President – Randy Videgar

Randy Videgar I am relatively new to running as a sport. When I hit 50, I decided to make some changes in my life. I dropped 50 lbs. over the next year and began running as part of my exercise regime. I quickly learned the importance of being part of an “accountability” group as I joined a small group that ran morning 3-4 times a week and usually ended with breakfast or talking about the run later in the day. It was a tie that bound us together.

Upon returning to the US, I wanted to find a group that would be similar and I tried AARC. What I quickly learned is that AARC is full of great, friendly, accepting people who know ALOT about running! So besides being part of group where I have met people I now consider “friends”, I have gained that feeling I needed of being accountable to others to ensure I continue to run regularly and show up to group events.

From having an initial goal 3 years ago of being able to walk on a treadmill for 30 minutes to finishing my first marathon at age 53 shows what you can achieve when you surround yourself with people who educate and most importantly motivate you to increase your ability and meet goals! So if you’re simply somebody looking to run alongside some fun, friendly people or are serious about becoming a runner, AARC can meet both of these goals separately or together.

Come and see what AARC is all about.
