stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
A successful community is made of many wonderful people with many wonderful and varied talents!

Sunday Scott Ewing will stand supreme at the top of our list of leaders as we honor the memory of Scott and all the love, care, and works he shared with us. While we will carry onward in his memory, he will never be replaced! His attention to detail and his boundless energy was infectious! He truly was an amazing man! To have shared life and running with his was a GIFT, it was a BLESSING!

Please join us at SCOTT EWING MEMORIAL Y 5K this Sunday at the Stroudsburg YMCA. Registration begins at 7:30 am, the race/walk begins at 9 am.

MORE WEEKEND RESULTS:

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL LAS VEGAS – 5K & Marathon
FROM DARLEEN – Hi Rod: I keep getting told “what happens in Vegas – stays in Vegas” but I will tell the 5k results for Sat were – Lou 31, Bob and I had 42. The next day for the marathon Lou had 5:14 and I had 5:07. That’s probably all the information I can publish except that a good time was had by all J.
From Rod – I’m going to blab Darleen! Darleen forgot to mention it was her 30th marathon completion! WAY TO GO DARLEEN!

I’m sorry, I can’t think about the Vegas marathon, most any marathon for that matter, and not think of the 1995 Vegas marathon when the AWESOME Laura Mason (Caiazzo) TORE IT UP and won the women’s event in 2:37.20!

BTW – Do people really swim Thanksgiving Day at Smithfield Beach? See attached of Laura and me after a somewhat chilly plunge into an ice cube free Delaware River. I pray there will ice cubes this year!

Next week – 11/27 – THANKSGIVING MORNING GATHERING at Smithfield Beach 8 am. Bring a snack (chocolate) to share. This is a tradition started by Scott, Bill, and Dan over 15 years ago. Bring a coffee/tea mug (did I mention something chocolate to share?) I know what you thinking, who shares chocolate, and how can it survive the trip to the beach without being eaten in your car. The only two solutions I know is to bring PLENTY, and to lock it in the trunk for the trip. Don’t give it to a friend to take it for you, unless it’s me, because it won’t make to the beach in someone else’s car either. Unfortunately there is a “no alcohol” regulation so please, no rum filled chocolates at the beach. : (

WEEK & WEEKEND EVENTS:
11/23 – SCOTT EWING MEMORIAL Y 5K – Stroudsburg YMCA –

I’m sitting here looking at pictures of Scott, and missing him. There are lots and lots of beautiful pictures of Scott, he is a handsome man and he takes a good picture. Yes I speak of him as if he is here, because he is in my heart and my mind! I know he is in all of y’alls also!

I’m angry about the limit of 200 shirts for the event. At first I was going to enter quickly so I would get a shirt! I then decided I will be the last entry Sunday, just in case there aren’t enough shirts to go around. I don’t want a shirt if EVERYBODY doesn’t get one! This has been a community of all for and one for all from its very beginning! We cannot meet our purpose, we cannot serve our community properly if we choose to leave anyone out!

Sunday is going to be a hard, VERY HARD, day for ALL of us! It’s not going to be just another 5K! There will be tears, both of sorrow and of joy! There will be laughter and good fellowship, all under the cloud of our sorrow. And while my Faith tells me Scott is in a better place, I want him here! I may be a selfish old bastard, but I think THIS is a good place, and I want him HERE, with US! This was a MUCH better place when Scott was HERE, with US!

Soooo, just when I believe my feelings have hardened, I’ve gotten it all under control, and I’ve been sorry and cried all I can or will…

“Courage is not having the strength to go on, it’s going on when you don’t have the strength”
Theodore Roosevelt

Why are Kenyans the best distance runners?

Four important points in this video
Rest
Passion
Be positive and patient. (Okay, maybe this is 2 thingies lumped into one)
Having spent his childhood running barefoot the Kenyan athlete scoffs at running barefoot saying barefoot running isn’t good.

Somehow I keep cutting/losing this event from the calendar below!

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”

St Luke’s Half Marathon is promoting giving a race entry as a gift! I LOVE THIS IDEA!

I believe most all of the following is a true representation of a story that actually happened!?

Many of us know the person that may have been the first person to use this “gifting” program several years ago, and for the same event. I don’t want to embarrass her so I won’t tell y’all her name. I will tell you she is BEAUTIFUL and she is a highly accomplished runner/triathlete!

This beautiful woman decided it would be fair for her to enter her husband in the Allentown Half as a surprise so it was fair for her not to tell him she did so. After all he always kept himself in fair shape so she figured it was fair to keep it a secret from him for a while. Who knows, perhaps it was fair as a foreplay thingy!?!?

The Friday before the Sunday event she felt it wasn’t fair to keep the secret any longer so she told him. I suspect she felt it was only fair to not let her husband know too far ahead, she wanted to be fair to his competitors and give them a fair chance.

If memory serves me he did a VERY fair job, he finished 11th overall in a fat 71 minutes. I guess it would be fair to say the couple were happy with his performance and being a fair guy he didn’t hold the joke gift against her!

I think it’s fair to say the gift keeps on giving, the couple have 3 fair haired boys who are acquiring a fair reputation as runners and triathletes themselves.

As y’all may have already guessed, all is fair in Scotrun, and war!

Put race entries on your Christmas and Holiday Gift Lists! Make a loved one run his or her bee-hind off for the holidays!

The River Ramble – This is truly an AWESOME event that wouldn’t be the caliber it is without the guidance of Trish D’Imperio! Her vision and supervision is a God send!

Immediately following Trish’s name there would be a host of incredible people whose value to the event can’t be established in a way or order without being unfair! Our Community leaders are there sharing the load equally! All bringing their individual’s talents in order to make this an event to be proud of!

Oh yeah…did I mention the The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area? What we generally refer to as the PARK SERVICE is made up of a bunch of fantastic people that have been given, at most times, the thankless job of supervising and caring for this land assigned to them. As I run the McDade trail frequently I can tell y’all the horrific messes some of the people using the picnic tables and facilities leave behind when a ranger isn’t on premises!

THANK YOU TO THE MEN & WOMEN WHO MAKE UP OUR DELAWARE WATER GAP NATIONAL RECREATION AREA!! Y’all are a sincere BLESSING!

FROM LISA FLORY (some editing, Skytop Rotary 5K has been cancelled)
Hi Scott’s Orange Team!

Our year is winding down and we only have a few more races to time! They are going to be some special ones though!

This weekend November 15th, we have two races that we are timing.

Delaware Valley Turkey Trot 5K up in Matamoras is being handled by Dion Campbell and he could use 2-3 volunteers. If you can help him out with this one please email him at dcboxers@msn.com

Rotary 5K at Skytop is being handled by me. Katy Case, Sue Gehris, Wendy LeDuc and Carmen Delgado are on the signup sheet so we should have plenty of help for this one.

Next Sunday we will be timing the first Scott Ewing Memorial Y5K. I have had a lot of people ask me if we need help and I am telling them all the same thing. Please run the race if you want to run and come and help out if you want to come help out. I would love to see the place covered in orange and full of smiling faces as we run and share the day remembering our friend!

Saturday, November 22nd I would like to invite anyone that would like to come out to please join us for a run at the mill at 7:30 and then after we go grab some coffee from Wawa I would like to take our cans of paint and head out to mark the course as we walk, talk, and drink our coffee together! The more the merrier!!

Our last race will be on December 6th and it’s another special day as we celebrate a whole group of young girls running in their 5K in Stroudsburg from the Wesleyan Church. We need lots of volunteers for this one to man the finish, the intersections, and cheer them on as they run! So far, the signup sheet shows Amanda Anglemyer, Aysha Kovitch, Nancy Wilson, Angela Tullo, Gladys Spaulding, Bart Spaulding, Sue Gehris, Wendy LeDuc, Lynn Byrne, Carmen Delgado, Eileen White, Gina Fish, and Mike Correll. Please let me know if you are available to help out that day.

That’s all for now. Can never thank all of you enough for all of the time you all give helping out our running community every time there’s a race! I’m sure there’s one smiling guy up there looking down on us!

CORRECTION FROM LISA – Hi All!

Apparently I missed some news and just found out that the Rotary 5K at Skytop was canceled a little over a week ago. No need to ask for volunteers for the Turkey Trot race. We can switch the volunteers from the Rotary 5K up to that one.

Sorry for the confusion!

FROM LISA FLORY – THANKSGIVING MORNING – SMITHFIELD BEACH – Saw Michelle Kuna at the race today and asked if we needed to let anyone know of our Thanksgiving run and she said to let her know so I told her we would be there on Thanksgiving like usual.

WHAT AM I MISSING?! Please let me know of anyone or any news or events I missed PLEASE!!!

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
WHY WE RUN – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmFV4vxUj4o

We run because we can! We run to be healthier and fitter! Please be the best you can be and be proud of your running. YOU are a gift to this community!

CONGRADULATIONS DAVID PARKER! As most probably already know local runner Dave was elected to a PA state house seat Tuesday evening. This puts him at the bottom of our most hated politician’s list since he hasn’t had chance to break any promises so far! I’m sure once he hits stride he’ll break ‘em quickly and move rapidly up the list of politicians we hate most! Just joking Dave! (Somebody look, is he smiling!???)

12/07 – THE HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS 50K/6 HOUR ULTRA
A 50K has been added, plus a post event gathering.
1 – The event will start and finish at my mail box (a running shoe) at my home at 5539 Franklin Hill Rd in East Stroudsburg. This way there will be warm bathrooms and shelter.
2 – The course will wind throughout out local neighborhood and include the Zacharias pond trail. It will be 3.1 mile or 5K loops which will give us a precise 50K finish option. Runners can run 10 loops and take a 50K finish. Should 50K take you longer than 6 hours that’s fine, take all the time you need! The mail box and I will be there waiting and cheering for YOU!
3 – There will be a table with water and refreshment at the start finish line/mail box, more in my game room.
4 – Start is 7am so the 6 hour finish is just in time for the 1 o’clock kick off.
Suggestions welcome –

THIS WEEKEND:
11/09 – THE RIVER RAMBLE – presented by everybody’s favorite running shoe/clothing & stuff store READY SET RUN – http://www.readysetrunpoconos.com/
Trish says we can swim!!! WE CAN SWIM!!! Unfortunately there won’t be any ice cubes in the river. Be sure to bring your birthday suit!

The Ramble as always will be timed by one of the finest race management teams in the country, Pretzel City Sports. I have known, admired, and loved Ron Horn longer than anyone I know in running, with the possible except of a dozen or so local runners!

I started running “Ron Horn” races over 20 years ago. Then I went to race and I quickly learned that whatever the hour of the start I needed to add 15 to 20 minutes beyond the hour into my warmup plans cause Ron can TALK! Perhaps he didn’t get to talk much at home, cause when he has a captive audience at the start line he would ramble on and on and on!

Some people say Ron is funny. He’s not! DON’T TELL HIM I SAID THAT! He could see to it I’m last Sunday!

Ron’s joy for and enthusiasm about running really can pump up a crowd! To run in his events is a VERY special treat! To know and be able to call Ron Horn a friend is a privilege, it is a BLESSING!

My guess he’s going to see to it I’m last this Sunday….

11/09 – SOUTH MOUNTAIN 5K & 10 MILE – http://lvrr.org/races/south-mt-10-miler-5k/
THIS IS A FANTASTIC RUN!

11/09 – HARRISBURG MARATHON – http://www.HarrisburgMarathon.com

Will there be any rats at the mill this weekend!?? Fur sure!

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
“Some of the world’s greatest feats were accomplished by people not smart enough to know they were impossible.”
- Doug Larson

An inspirational running video

There is more than one way of telling if a person is truly a dope, this is one of ‘em!
Rita Jeptoo fails doping test. Rita Jeptoo is a Kenyan marathon runner. She has won the Boston Marathon three times, including setting the course record at 2:18:57 in 2014

Attached is a picture of MEB KEFLEZIGHI and local runner ZENAIDA AGUILA meeting for the first time at the NYC Marathon where ZENAIDA was once again a volunteer.

FROM TONI MCDONALD: Thank you and all the gang for your thoughts and prayers.
Bob is doing well and all systems are functioning. He is watching the N.Y. marathon and enjoying that. If anyone can get back to running it will be Bob.
Will keep you posted on his progress. Thank you again. Toni

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
You know you’re a runner when you get mad that an injury keeps you from running, not that it’s damaged your body! Author unknown.

FROM LINDA YEAGER: (Linda emailed Bob to see how he’s doing. Following is his response.)
Bob’s email to Linda – 10/27 – Just got the bad news this morning- I have a torn tendon above the knee and have to have immediate surgery. I am scheduled for surgery tomorrow afternoon- bad luck! Recovery period is 8-12 weeks so looks like I won’t be running for a while. The surgery is out patient so will be home tomorrow evening. (this will be today)
Bob
THANK YOU LINDA!!!

Bobby Mac, we need you back!

Bobby McDonald decides what course most of the rats are running at 7:30 every morning and when he starts running so does everyone else and he’s fairly prompt. This past weekend folks were still standing ‘round at 7:45 grumbling “where are we running, isn’t it time to go!”

So Bobby, nobody cares if you can’t run! Just come out and tell everybody where to run to and say GO! Then when they get back you can buy coffee! : ) OMG just think of the break it’ll give Toni!

Bobby doesn’t hear well either. He blames it on helicopter flights during his three tours in Vietnam. Bobby is a West Point graduate and retired from the Army as a lieutenant colonel, also from ESU where he was a professor. Bobby has an abundance of experience at retiring, we don’t want to see him retire from running!

Anyhow he says the motor noise and the machine gun fire wrecked his hearing. I think it more likely came from the loud bong sound a badminton racket makes as Bobby played an AWFUL lot of badminton, hence one of his nick names being “Badminton Bob”. Whether it was Vietnam or badminton I’m fear a bong may have played a major role in his disability!

Note to Toni, if he gets you a little nuts and if you want to get even with him just do what we do ‘round the mill. You just give him a bit of a stern look and move your lips. He comes running “what did you say?” I couldn’t hear you, what was that? I can’t hear well, WHAT DID YOU SAY!?!? Then he starts mumbling to himself and goes away looking dejected! It works every time Toni!!

PLEASE KEEP BOB IN YOUR KINDEST THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS!

The ESU Cross Country Team is having a great year! Check out their website for the latest news.
There is a tweet on their twitter page that says “Joe is God. Let the light shine!”
Coach Koch is a VERY fine man and coach! It’s so nice to see the kids appreciate the gift he brings!
