- stuff ’round the mill
Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up …
Thomas Edison

Sometimes the talk around the Mill can get silly! Okay…MOST of the time around the mill the talk is silly! Anyhow this past Saturday the pre-run discussion was about what running can’t fix. Pretty quickly it was agreed running can’t fix stupid! Running can’t fix ugly! Running can’t fix balding! Some of us guys who are afflicted with one or two of these three conditions, and two who are holders of the trifecta, agreed we are not giving up on the possibility that running may improve these conditions for us if only slightly.

Don’t ever give up! Not on running and not on life! Give yourself a chance to be successful! Stick it out, train hard and wisely, hold you head high and proudly! Stay the course until the very end!

Jake Flory told me about a fast guy that came and ran with the Y group last week one night. The guy’s name is Steve and he’s from Perth AUS. He daughter was with him and they are headed for the Boston Marathon where the daughter will run the 10 Sunday and Steve who is 49 and has a personal best marathon time of 2:40 will be running the marathon. His Boston number is 555 and his info is below:

stuff ’round the mill 140411

- stuff ’round the mill
“Everything in moderation, including moderation itself” The original author may be unknown.

So when it comes to running who or what determines what is moderate? One article in the NY Times the set limit of moderation at 2 ½ hours per week. This article actually concluded that running more than 2 ½ hours per week would shorten your life. This conclusion came from a survey not from any medical science. I feel the research in this article was irresponsible, the interest was simply to cause sensationalism, it offered little in the way of facts, so I didn’t send it out.

The article below was sent to us by Art Zulick. The research here points to runners who have run many years and somewhat long distances. The article makes the point that despite having run for years at 40 or miles per week those who were interviewed still had health problems. One man interviewed seems to express a great deal of disappointment and even the feelings of having been left down by running. In spite of his dedication to running he found himself with an unhealthy high amount of plaque in his system. I believe an honest assessment would include examination of his diet and family history of the participants in this research, but the point of the article was too damn running more than 15 to 20 miles per week

http://www.philly.com/philly/health/sportsmedicine/Walk_away_from_excess_running_researchers_say.html

I am a researcher without any degrees but I read a lot of stuff. I can be an opinionated rascal! My opinion about running is it has been VERY good to and for me and it can be for you also! My family members die from diabetes. I am the oldest of 5 children. One of my sisters died from a drug overdose. My brother and other 2 sisters which are in their 40’s have been diabetic for a long time. I feel without having taken up running I too would be diabetic. The truth is while running has been SO good to me, I have not been good to my running. For many years running has tried to carry me through races at faster times and longer distance than I have accomplished. The problem has been that I have a terrible diet and I carry excessive weight. My choice of foods in value and quantity is poor and I drink too much alcohol! If food is put in front of me I eat it, even food I don’t care for. Grammie buys cookies for everyone at our factory that taste like cardboard, but I eat them! NO…I don’t eat too much ice cream! I barely eat enough ice cream! We’re not going there!!!

Moderation for me, for many years, was 50 to 60 miles weekly. Serious training was 75 to 90 miles weekly. As individuals we all need to find what moderation is. Through proper training we can increase what moderation is for us.

- stuff ’round the mill
“Your body will argue that there is no justifiable reason to continue. Your only recourse is to call on your spirit, which fortunately functions independently of logic.”
- Tim Noakes

Why continue? This question can be asked at time during an event, after an event, and between events when your training can be monotonous and difficult. At times even family and friends will ask why you continue to push yourself, what are you trying to prove!? There are times when you seriously need an atta boy/girl and a hug and there’s none to be found!

It seems like another life time but many years ago I was serving as lay pastor in a local protestant church for a Sunday and part of my sermon dealt with children and their need for exercise, both physically and spiritually. I spoke about the need for children to have a period of play time daily outside where they can run and shout and laugh until their bellies ache for the sake of their bodies but also for their SPIRIT! Kids need a chance to “get loud and be proud!” I believe that’s true for kids from one to a hundred and ninety two.

The following Sunday I was greeted by one father telling me about how he tried to calm and quiet his children one evening and one child said “we’re just exercising our spirit as Rod told us to do!” Ya gotta be careful what you say, ya just never know when someone is listening…

Connect with, exercise and strengthen your spirit daily! Your spirit is your very best friend! Believe in yourself with all you might! When all else seems to be crumbling around you, your spirit can and will get you through! Practice you’re running and live your life with pride, let you spirit shine brightly with every breath and step you take!

There are some wonderful young men & women coming up with very noteworthy track and field results at ESU! Check ‘em out!

Could this be the man to eventually break the 2 hour mark in the marathon!?!?

stuff ’round the mill 140404

- stuff ’round the mill
Running is a road to self-awareness and reliance-you can push yourself to extremes and learn the harsh reality of your physical and mental limitations or coast quietly down a solitary path watching the earth spin beneath your feet. – Doris Brown Heritage

I have not only improved my health by running but I sincerely believe I have improved my attitude towards life. I run every mile I possibly can, week in and week out! Early on my running was most importantly about competition. That slowly evolved to where it became very important to me to help others with their running. I now realize my life, my world, and my Faith has become centered on my running, my health, and my fitness! I want to be independent, I love the freedom mobility provides. Running has a place for everyone no matter your ambition or your level of ability. I NEVER EVER want to be a burden to anyone, I intend to continue running forever! And when my final day on this earth comes it is my intention to run/walk to my grave site, crawl in, and cover myself over!

I personally may be a bit radical for some, but I wish to hopefully be an example and to tell everyone that it is never too late nor is it ever too early to begin your march to fitness and good health! Whether you are reading this as a member of our email list “stuff ‘round the mill” or on our blog “Running the Pocono’s and Beyond” which is kindly provided by the Pocono Record, please join us as part of our fitness community and start your march to a healthier and fitter life!

WEEKEND RESULTS:
FROM RICH: MISERICORDIA UNIVERSITY – NSA 5K (NATIONAL STUTTERING ASSN)

https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsdGRvbWFpbnxuc2Fub3J0aGVhc3RwZW5uc3lsdmFuaWF8Z3g6NjExNzcwZWFlYjFjNmFiYQ

Good evening. I just received this from the Stuttering Support folks. The results link should be accessible through the attachment. The only other runner I knew was Rachel Bossler from Cresco who beat me at the end. She was very happy about that. I was happy for her as she is a recent addition to the running community.
#18 Rachel Bossler 24:29 3 F Overall
#19 Rich Price 24:32 1 M 60+
I didn’t see anyone else that I knew but you may recognize someone from the results list. It was a great race and a good turnout.
All the best,
Rich

SHAWNEE MOUNTAIN 5K MUD RUN AND KIDS MINI MUD RUN
FROM JIM TUST: (for newer members who may ask who Jim Tust is? He’s first and foremost a kind, supportive, and gracious man! He is an accomplished runner and tri athlete! He is a partner at Shawnee Mountain where he and his partners take every opportunity they can find to offer a “pay back” to our community! I have NEVER heard a single word of criticism spoken about Jim! And he’s a long standing mill rat!

Hi Folks,
Just wanted to make you all aware that online registration is now open for the Shawnee Mountain 5K Mud Run and Kids Mini Mud Run this year on Saturday August 16. Same course(s) and schedule for heats and teams. At least one surprise obstacle and a redesign of the slip & slide obstacle. Same beneficiaries “Pocono Girls on the Run” and “Soles for Souls”. Same entry prices, and early registration discount through June 16. For registration and more information click on www.shawneemt.com
Thanks for helping spread the word.
Jim

Is anybody else looking for a partner for the RFR RELAY?

FROM ANN PANARELLO: http://www.poconorecord.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20140404/NEWS/404040335/-1/NEWSLETTER100
Something needs to be done about dangerous drivers in the Poconos. The story about the women hit by a car in Tobyhanna is terrible! Unfortunately, this is not the first time hearing about a pedestrian or cyclist getting hit by a car. Is there a committee that focuses on improving the roads to make them more safe, etc.? If so, please advise, I like to join. This story really hits home for all the runners, bikers and walkers in our community.

THIS WEEK & WEEKEND:
04/05 – GIRLS ON THE RUN POCONO we are doing a fundraiser at the Elks Club in East Stroudsburg on April 5, 2014. The event is called Lunafest. This fundraiser will benefit us, as well as The Breast Cancer Fund. Lunafest includes 9 short films for by and about women, raffles from local people and places in the Poconos, and light food and 1 complimentary beer or wine with the purchase of the event ticket. Could we ask you to please include this in your weekly emails? Any questions email me at schlomer712@hotmail.com or call 5704604536.

FROM THE SCRANTON RUNNING COMPANY NEWSLETTER:
04/06 – SCRANTON ½ MARATHON – http://www.scrantonhalf.com/the-events/
I missed this one, it looks like this is going to be a rockin’ good time! Check it out!

Oh yeah, attached is another Bob Stout picture from Law Day 1988. This one will REALLY hurt the guy in the middle!

stuff ’round the mill 140328

- stuff ’round the mill
All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.
Pope Paul VI

I’m sure most all y’all have heard the Mickey Mantle quote “if I would have known I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself!” Well if I would have known how many years Grammie/Bonnie and I would be together I would have taken much better care of her! Fifty years ago today Grammie and I were married in a small Protestant Church in Red Hill PA. Our fifty years have included love, joy, struggle, and hard work, we have been blessed beyond anything I could have ever hoped for. Our years together at times has been troubled and sometimes frantic, my only regret is that she truly is worthy of much MUCH better than I’ve been able to give her…

From the very tippy top of the best elite runners down through the rest of us the struggles and hard work is repeated daily. Finding time to train, sacrificing time with family and friends, sacrificing income in order to achieve a better performance, we’ve all made these adjustments in our lives in order to have a chance for our most important perhaps dreams come true!

If your next goal is to walk a 5K or to run a world record in a 6 day running event, and every event distance that falls in between, please struggle mightily! STRUGGLE! Make your plans and prepare with passion, search your heart deeply, and be dedicated to making your dream become a reality! Allow no one to make your dream feel small! Pick your friends wisely, plan your future with those who lift you up, not those who put you down! And all the while do your best to lift everyone around you to a higher rung on the ladder! You deserve what you work for and earn so don’t stop working and struggling until you achieve your fondest dreams and desires both in running as well as the rest of your life! It’s your life, you are special so continue to make yourself feel special, and never stop moving forward!

Many small groups have formed and are headed out from the mill at different times. You’ll probably be able to find someone leaving the mill for a run on the half hour mark from 6 am until 7:30 am both Sat & Sun. Just be there ready to run, act surprised!

I try real hard to avoid politics here, perhaps a little slips in occasionally, but I hope no one is offended by the following notice. We have a runner amongst us seeking political office. Here is some news and a way to help his cause should you care to be part of campaign.

stuff ’round the mill 140325

- stuff ’round the mill
“Everything comes in time to him who knows how to wait.” – Leo Tolstoy

I know how to wait, let’s could go for a run while we’re waiting! And maybe while we’re running we can figure out how to make what it is we’re waiting for happen NOW! Running/exercise wakes up ALL the bodies’ parts; especially our minds. While running is strengthening your body it is also energizing you mind! I love it when I’ve been out for a long run and think of a cool idea and can’t wait to get home and tell it to Grammie! More often than not Grammies reply is “Rodney you need to go back out and run much longer and think this thing through!” My running even inspires Grammie to helpful thoughts!

Should we sit and wait for good health and happiness? Nah!!! Let’s get out there and build our good health and be happy with the process! Be the healthiest person you can be. Be the best runner you can be. And be proud and happy with your results, even the ones below your expectations! Don’t let results that don’t meet you hopes and expectations drag you down!

stuff ’round the mill 140321

- stuff ’round the mill
Sit quietly, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself. – Zen saying

YEAH RIGHT! I don’t want to sit quietly! I want to run laugh and shout at the top of my lungs! There is fresh new love in the air! Okay, maybe a little hate too! There are new roads to run on, new trails to run on, and many new and different drivers honking their horns to chase us outta the way for us to “flip off!” Think of how much less our carbon foot print would be, how much more time we’d have to train, if grass grew to 3 inches and stayed at that height for the whole summer! Maybe that Zen guy could quit sitting on his fat bee-hind and start working on developing grass and plants that don’t cause allergies! I am so suspicious of people who want me to just sit around and let life pass by. I want to be in life’s parade, I don’t want to do nothing, to just watch it! Sit quietly my bee-hind! Whether you’re running walking cycling swimming dancing crossfitting, whatever, LET’S TEAR IT UP!

Attached is a picture sent to me by Bob Stout. I think he said it is from back in the 1800’s when he and Dave, two of the founding “mill rats”, were young and handsome!

Art azulick@ptd.net ,
Bob tonimc@ptd.net )
Phil giaquinto.phil@penargylsd.org

Ralph Bender – And, anyone who wants to be my teammate, will get an enduring wealth advisers performance shirt for their efforts! – ralphbender@verizon.net

stuff ’round the mill 140218

- stuff ’round the mill
“It’s humbling to start fresh. It takes a lot of courage. But it can be reinvigorating. You just have to put your ego on a shelf & tell it to be quiet.” – Jennifer Ritchie Payette

Last week I learned Joelle, the heart and soul of Team Fair, has a serious back injury. I first met Joelle when I began running in local races over 20 years ago. My first impressions of her were that she was gorgeous and FAST! The early races I ran with her were always the same, the gun would go off and I’d see Joelle rapidly leaving me in the dust! This scene was repeated time and time again.

Then there came a day in Allentown, the event was what is now the St Luke’s half, when the event started as always Joelle was off like a shot out of a cannon and gone. She didn’t actually look herself, she appeared a little over weight and drawn but she still was gorgeous! Somewhere between Mile 9 and 10 I caught and passed her, she was suffering, I MEAN SUFFFERING! I hurt just looking at her, I thought why she would do this to herself!? She surely didn’t need another half marathon finish! JEEZ this is insane!!! I spoke with her briefly and found out she had given birth to one of her sons very recently and she was starting over again, getting back into shape.

The insane is what passionate racers do. Running is no easier for the racers amongst us then it is for you and me, it’s just that they refuse to allow you to see into their suffering, occasional discouragement, and pain. They race at one speed, “all out!” Time and time again racers make new starts, they create new beginnings out of the depths of despair caused by injuries, life’s setbacks, and road blocks that end mere mortal’s careers.

The one area where these racers are like us is in that they need thoughtful, encouraging, and kind words just like the rest of us. Joelle will be back, she will make a fresh start! Her family and all of us need her healthy and running with us! Please keep her in your kindest thoughts and prayers!

WEEKND RESULTS:
03/16 – 5K Renal Race, “Still kickin’ Kidney Cancer”, at Public Square in Wilkes Barre. www.therenalrace.com
I’m unable to get into this site and I haven’t found the results yet. When I get them I will send them along.

THE TWO RIVERS MARATHON RACE Festival – It’s been reported that the first day half marathon course was approximately 11.84 miles. The second day the distance was goosed to 12.8 miles. It’s been reported the marathon course on Saturday was a bit over 25 miles. Some marathoners chose to and started considerably before the start gun was fired without knowing their time would registered as if they had started at the official gun. Yes, you guessed it, a BQ time had as much to do with starting early enough as running fast did. A dear friend of mine refers to events like this as a “cluster goof” only she doesn’t use the word goof! I’m not going to report results, for what they are worth you may be able to find them if you care to at http://neparunner.com/

NEPA Runner is a fantastic website and source of info for running to the north and west of us. I don’t know who is responsible for this website but it is excellent and has been for a very long time!

stuff ’round the mill 140314

- stuff ’round the mill
Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.
William Shakespeare

As runners who amongst us hasn’t suffered from doubt? My suspicion is that none of us haven’t had our moments of doubt from our very beginning! Can I run? Can I run fast enough not to embarrass myself? Can I run far enough to finish the race? Will I look and feel foolish if I fail? Who amongst us hasn’t thought “maybe I should wait, maybe I’m not ready for this event!?!?

To a degree doubt is a weakness we can exercise our way through and overcome! With experience we can get stronger, more determined, more confident in our abilities! Doubt is something that we can slowly decrease, but it is always there lurking in our minds trying to creep out and grab hold of us. Doubt can begin from a negative statement by a friend who doesn’t even realize they are saying something harmful. Doubt can begin in a workout that just didn’t have the right feeling, or perhaps you were a bit slower or it went harder than to be!

Spring is close and a new running season is at hand. Prepare yourself mentally as well as physically so you meet all your doubts with a body and mind full of confidence, hungry to continue with the amazing dreams and plans stored in your heart and mind! Deny your doubts! Push then back, way back out of your life. Those around you who whine and moan and groan, SHUT THEM OUT! You are on a mission that can go nowhere but forward! FORWARD!

Whether you are about to begin your first season of running/racing or you 100th, be confident in yourself! You are worth the time! You are worth the effort! And along the way be a kind and helpful person to all traveling the path of fitness with you! Everyone occasionally needs help overcoming doubt!

Here is the local Greyhound Adoption website. It chocked full of info if you have any thoughts about making a contribution and or adopting one of these magnificent dogs! If you’re looking for a running partner that doesn’t babble or whine on and on about dumb stuff this could be the ideal option for you. PS – they don’t need shoes or gels!
