“stuff ‘round the mill”

FROM DOLORES:
Can you reach out to the group if anyone is able to help Coach or Assistant Coach for Girls on the Run we are still looking for some help for the fall…. Male or Female ….. running or no running experience needed…
Also our 5k is set for December 5th …..
Thanks Dolores
Dolores Everett
dolores.everett@girlsontherun.org

FROM ROD – I don’t want to speak for Dolores or the organization, but I sort of will, just a little. : ) That “running or no running experience needed” part speaks volumes. The GIRLS ON THE RUN is not about running or making runners out of the girls in our community. They use running as a tool to help build self reliant women as these young girls grow up. Along the way they are helping the girls develop a fitness life style. So I suspect the biggest requirement for a mentor in the program is that they care about helping our girls become our community leaders for many years to come. This is no different than the Big Brothers programs and others for young boys helping them grow into fine upstanding young men!

Whenever speaking with the folks who’ve devoted time to these programs I’ve found how the volunteers seem to feel they’ve benefitted even more than the children they have been helping! Do you have some time, experience, and love to share?

FROM JEFF:

A few locals will be in it – or at least till the first chocolate stop anyway.

Ultra marathoners Anton Krupicka & Joe Grant speaking of the benefits of cycling to support their running and other stuff:

“stuff ‘round the mill”

I’m just back from Bobbie Krawitz’s funeral service. There so many wonderful things said about her. During recent days I’ve found myself thinking about Bobbie and her likeness to a Biblical! Bobbie was the epitome of Eve! Bobbie has been a blessing to family, friends and her community! Just thinking of her brings happiness to my heart. Please continue to keep Bobbie and Itze, and their loved one in your hearts and prayers!

“stuff ‘round the mill”

Dara O’Kearney: Ultramarathon champ turned poker pro. O’Kearney has won three ultras and one marathon, and $270,000 in poker this year alone

http://mensrunninguk.co.uk/top-feature/dara-okearney-ultramarathon-champ-turned-poker-pro/

Back in the 80′s Don Jewell was one of the world’s elite ultra marathoners. His courage during Ultra’s was extreme! It’s been reported by those that got to watch some of his performances that his dogged determination was sometimes frightening to watch, he simply wouldn’t quit! Don once crossed a finish line and collapsed into a comma that lasted for a week.

You’ve seen him helping at many events here in our community; he keeps a very low profile not seeking or happy to receive plaudits for his past record performances. With respect for his wishes I will not post a picture of the man he once was. But I WILL post a picture of the WEENIE BABY he has become!

Less than a week away comes the second happening of a new COMMUNITY event. THE FIRST RESPONDER 5K RUN/WALK Last year it was singularly about Rubin Torres and you folks responded with short notice and made it a magnificent event! As I walked along at the back of the pack I knew in my heart this happening was only the beginning of an event that will grow. Why? Because it’s due time the people who respond in our emergencies’, our life and maybe death situations, and are harmed in that process continue to receive the honor and respect from a community that does not take their sacrifices for granted! They are a God Send and we must do ALL we can for them and their families! So we will so what we do best, run, walk, and contribute some money, and perhaps most importantly hold these we honor up in our hearts, minds, and prayers!

Here is the list to be honored and helped this year:
Officer Ruben Torres
EMT Tobee Capozzi
Kim Smith, wife of Officer Doug Smith
Firefighter Steve Adams
Det. Doug Knowles

Please keep Bobbi Krawitz in your hearts, thoughts, and prayers, as well as Steve and Minda Krawitz!

THIS WEEKEND:
08/22 – BLUE VALLEY FARM SHOW – 5PM at the Fairgrounds Info – 610-588-1925
This is one of the really cool (hot at 5 pm) events around. Fast course on relatively flat roads, plenty of sweet treats and fellowship when the race is over! AND it’s cheap, $12 without a shirt. Prices out of the 80′s!

08/27 – THE FIRST RESPONDER 5K RUN/WALK – Thursday, August 27, 2015 at 6:30 PM
Course – Levy Loop! Out and back.
Start – Rudy’s Tavern. Finish – Rudy’s Tavern.
Check in – Rudy’s Tavern at 5:00 pm

Benefit – Local First Responders and their Families: Officer Ruben Torres, EMT Tobee Capozzi, Kim Smith (wife of Officer Doug Smith), Firefighter Steve Adams and Det. Doug Knowles.

Entry Fee: – $20 per person

“stuff ‘round the mill”
I am a runner.

This is not so because I run races or because of the time registered on a clock when I cross the finish line. It’s not so because of distances I run or the number of days per week or month or year that I run. This is not so because of the number of events I run per year. This is not so because of the clothes I wear, there is no mandatory runner’s dress code, some runners don’t even wear shoes! I am not a runner because someone has designated me as a runner; I don’t need anybody’s certification or stamp of approval. Perhaps the closest thing to a test of being a runner has been the test of time, and that time for me has been a blessing! There is no minimum distance, nor a maximum to being a runner. What is minimum mileage to some may be sloughing off to others. Some runners long runs are just a waste of time to others who prefer high intensity short running to running slow for a very long time or perhaps even for a number of days.

I know I am a runner because when I wake up in the morning, amongst other primal thoughts, running is fixed in my mind. My thoughts are will I run once, twice, maybe three times today? I will do whatever is best for my running. Will I run hills? Will I run fast!? Will I run slow and make it an easy day to rest my body. Perhaps for my best running I need a day off and extra rest, or maybe some cycling! Some days my body is sore and my mind is stale and I need a break from my normal routine. My mind is always searching for what my running body needs to improve! I want to be a better runner! I must be a better runner! When I am a better runner I am a happier person! When I am a better runner I am a healthier person and my level of patience is much higher, my life and the world for me is a much better place!

I hang with runners; they are the majority of my friends. My running friends come in the normal stages. Some have been runners from back in their youth; running is deeply entrenched into their souls. Some want to be runners; they just don’t know the extent or level of effort they are willing to extend. Some are pretending to be runners, not fully having made the commitment to lifelong running. The stages I moved through becoming the runner I am today were first pretending I wanted to be a runner, I was just not really sure I could make the commitment. I wanted to run long enough to lose some weight and get a bit healthier, not necessarily do this silly running stuff for the rest of my life. Running seemed too hard and my daily work was hard, I didn’t see myself needing more hard stuff in my life? The harder I worked the easier he running became. The harder I worked the more rewarding the running became. Soon running made the other hard stuff in my life so much easier to deal with.

If a friend says let’s do something fun my first thought is okay, let’s run! I don’t need a change of pace, I need to run! If I have a break in the day of an hour or two my first thought is okay, I’ll go for a run. If I can’t sleep or wake up in the middle of the night, more often than not, I will go for a run and generally return and fall immediately to sleep. A mile or 2 may be all it takes to burn off the anxiety that is keeping me awake.

Running may not cure all misery, illness, and problems. But it comes close…

COMING SOON – Boston Marathon Registration – http://www.baa.org/races/boston-marathon.aspx

Registration for the 2016 Boston Marathon will open on Monday, September 14, 2015, at 10:00 a.m. ET.

“stuff ‘round the mill”

Is summer flying bye or what!! There are several additions to the events schedule below. Some are brand new events while some are oldies but goodies like the Blue Valley Farm Show 5K an evening event next weekend where there is so much great fellowship and good food and fun that you can’t really be “blue”!

FWIW: The young lady I spoke of setting the 23 100mile races in one year last week. Her mom and dad traveled to each event with her to care for her. According to my recollection Monica ate no meals from a restaurant or store leading up to an event. Her mother prepared every meal and every bite of food she ate before and during an event. Many times they stayed with a friend or two at their homes and her mom could cook there! They were not taking a chance on a bad meal or snack ruining her event by food poisoning. During the event I was in with her Monica ate a large plate of lasagna while on the run/walk at 2:30 in the morning.

“stuff ‘round the mill”
One article in the Record this morning is titled College Move in day advice for parents.

Friday is college move out day for Lisa Pizzuto. The University has been about 95% of her life for over 21 years, now she is moving to a private coaching practice. The description of the job she will be undertaking sounds as though it’s going to be ideal for her! Lisa can do ANYTHING! I/we should be very happy for her! That is unless we are one of the girls she won’t be coaching at the University. Or if we’re a member of her masters swim class. Bottom line is Lisa is gonna be MISSED at the university! But not by you and me because she’s staying here in our community though here office will be in Bethlehem.

God loves you Lisa and so do WE!!! Good luck with your new job!!

THE 5TH ANNUAL TOUR DE CHOCOLATE TOWN CENTURY BIKE RIDE
FROM LYNN:
Linda, Rhonda, Fred, Charlie, Frank and I all went down. Couldn’t have asked for better company. The course was so scenic, just picture perfect. (Although a bit stinky at times because of the cows) And there was so much chocolate!! Unfortunately while riding in a line, Linda clipped Franks tire when everyone started to slow down unexpectedly. She went down. Horrible sound. She was pretty banged up but only concerned about her bike. She’s a trooper; she managed to get to 75 when she and Fred took a ride back. This was Fred’s first attempt at a century. He did such a great job but was cramping pretty badly. Everyone caught up with each other at the end where there was more chocolate! Another one in the books….Another great ride!

FROM LISA:
HI ORANGE SHIRTS!

“stuff ‘round the mill”

So I’m out running early this morning when I heard footsteps and sense someone running coming up along side of me. I thought whomever it is will pass me shortly then there came a familiar voice sayin’ pick it up old man; YEOW, it was SCOTT!

We stopped and embraced, and laughed, and I shed a tear or two! It felt so good! I’ve been in a VERY sad mood, I really needed a friend and as always Scott’s presence was so comforting!

We began running again and we chatted like magpies. He asked about my running and I gave him every excuse I could think of for my poor performances, trying to avoid the simple fact I just don’t train hard enough or consistent enough anymore. I’m just LAZY!

I asked about his training and he told me he’s preparing for the Tri in the Sky Triathlon in late September. He said his training is pretty good! He continued “my cycling and running is better than ever!” My swimming is improving. He said please tell everyone that he doesn’t recommend anyone swimming alone, he’d never have swam alone if he knew the consequences!

I asked about the weather and he responded it’s way way warmer than he expected???

Have ya seen Itze? No, but I heard he’s here; it’s a really big place up there Rod, a REALLY big place! I will look him up and greet him. He said “this is a fabulous place, but I miss my old friend’s smiles and laughter! I miss their problems, their company, just sharing life with them!

I told him we all miss him tremendously and I was about to ask another question when Scott said “I’m sorry to cut this short Rod, but I gotta go! Tell everybody I miss and love them! And as suddenly as he was there with me he was gone…

The sun was coming up and I was once alone and playing tricks with my mind to keep me going for another few miles. The miles with Scott were so quick and so easy! The tricks and games are the secret to stayin’ out there when the will begins to fade. Plus sometimes I love running alone to test my sanity and my compatibility. If you can’t stand running alone with yourself how can you expect others to enjoy running with you!?

Life is so good! The finest ingredient in life is found in the people you choose to share it with. The joy of shared experiences and the comfort of memories reliving those joyous times is a blessing that can’t be replaced! Run, laugh and enjoy life with all the folks you can! Remember, everybody has a story that needs tellin’, listen to and be compassionate to everyone!

Jim Manello mentioned in a PARC email that he was running once weekly.

While in a race in Ohio back in 2001 I met Monica Schulz who set the record for the most 100 mile events (23) in a calendar year. It’s now up to 37. Ed Ettinghausen now holds the record, see below.

http://running.competitor.com/2014/10/news/ready-ed-ettinghausens-100-mile-quest_116266

Anyhow she told us all about how her training for the year was to run 2 times per week. Mid week she’d run 5K to 10K. Obviously 23 weekends she ran 100 miles. The other weekend she said she’d run 40 to 70 miles.

Once a week isn’t so bad Jim! Just make it a BIG (really long) ONE!

“stuff ‘round the mill”

There is a saying “a new broom sweeps clean.” To that I’d add that until the dust settles it can be hard breath and to see!

Dick DeSchriver and Edwin Krawitz, perhaps the two most positive and uplifting influences in our community are gone!

At Itze’s funeral, Mark Kilker was recalling some of the fantastic times when Ken Barthold and Ed Krawitz would start on each other and how we’d laugh and laugh and laugh! They both were so funny! They both were dear friends! They had to be to tease each other the way they did without hurting feeling or getting angry!

Life and running was good when Kenny and Itze ran the Mill Rats! I miss those days and the old mill rats, everyone that made running fun and special!

Itze is buried right our old South Stroudsburg Route! Nobody runs the south Stroudsburg route anymore. Through the freedom a runner has to easily adulterate a course and still know approximately the distance many of our old 6 to 10 standard courses have been changed dramatically. Many are forgotten in favor of new courses. New people, new ideas, stuff changes. In the end, if folks are happy and find inspiration in their training, it’s all good!

I desperately wanted to bring back the Krawitz Award! I whole heartedly hoped the blessing us old folks found in the Krawitz Award could be passed on to new generations. I as wrong! No surprise there! The foundation upon which the Krawitz Award was founded and thrived was the love of people and the grace showered upon us by Itze and Bobbie Krawitz! They opened their home, they opened their hearts, and in their kindness they gave us a time and place to celebrate our achievements amongst a group of our piers!

I see Itze and Dick as angels the good Lord sent amongst us to inspire and lead us during their time here on the earth. As we were blessed by them we will be blessed again, it’s time for new stuff, new traditions, and leaders that unite us and inspire us! What will your role be as our community grows moves forward?

There is low registration for Shawnee Mountain Mud Run! The numbers are somewhere around half the expected registrations. THAT’S BAD! It’s REALLY bad for Girls on the Run! It’s really bad for Shawnee Mountain!
PLEASE! ENCOURAGE EVERYONE YOU MEET TO ENTER AND COME AND PLAY IN THE MUD!

“stuff ‘round the mill”
The deep pain that is felt at the death of every friendly soul arises from the feeling that there is in every individual something which is inexpressible, peculiar to him alone, and is, therefore, absolutely and irretrievably lost. – Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher

With the loss of Itze there is a hole left in our community! His loss is as stated above, irretrievable, he was a unique individual! Please pray for his soul! Please keep the Krawitz family in your hearts and prayers!!!!
