“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!!!!

PLEASE KEEP ED KRAWITZ IN YOUR HEARTS AND PRAYERS!!!!

WEEK RESULTS:
IRONMAN LAKE PLACID DIV RANK SWIM BIKE RUN FINISH
PIZZUTO, LISA USA 65 1522 01:06:01 07:43:03 05:41:03 14:52:39
PIZZUTO, JOHN USA 179 1673 01:00:46 07:30:52 06:21:59 15:19:28 (Lisa’s big brother)
FAIR, GEORGE USA 10 1756 01:22:14 07:46:45 06:06:46 15:34:51

A picture of Lisa showing her joy is attached! It’s a special picture because Lisa is a special woman. Lisa is a giver! She takes little, she gives a TON! She wrote to us about all the people that helped her with her training. My suspicion is ALL those people felt blessed that Lisa shared her training with them! Lisa gives, she shares, she takes back little! I don’t like the saying “anybody deserves!”

Lisa Pizzuto worked HARD to become and Ironman! She EARNED it! She DESERVES it!

“stuff ‘round the mill”

Jeff and I kid each other a lot. He kind of jealous of my passion for getting’ naked! I mean if God had wanted me covered he would have clothed me with fur on my back and chest like Marty and Howie!

Jeff and I have SO much in common! He is tall, I am short! He is terribly handsome, I am short! He is a great athlete, I am short! I know what you’re thinking, why am I rubbing it in!? He’s always wanted to be short but ha ha! He can never be short like me! NEVER!

Another thing we have in common is we are both kept men! If our wives ever find out we will be DEAD men!

The weather sounds fantastic for a weekend of training and more training!

FROM JIM TUST – Hi Rod,

I was hoping in your next email blast you could put the shout out for volunteers needed for our 5th annual Shawnee Mountain Mud Run, this year on Saturday August 15.

The event will again benefit the Pocono Girls on the Run programs.

We could use some help with the registration, finish area & course directional marshals, water stations and kids run helpers & directional folks. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact me at jimt@shawneemt.com or 570-421-7231 x221. All volunteers will receive an event tech shirt and lunch voucher.

Note: over the years the Shawnee Mud Run has raised more than $25K for Pocono GOR and donated 1300 pairs of running shoes to Soles for Souls. All this could not of happened without our local Mill Rat runners, PARC & of course Scott Ewing’s Orange Team volunteers. Thank you all.

FROM ROD – I’m a hero worshipper! I LOVE people that go to extremes doing what is right for their communities! Jim Tust and his partners (Shawnee Mountain) are such people! Without any fan fare and with little recognition they do the right thing for our girls and their families! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!

See what it says above!? If you can’t run it you can help there and you get a shirt and a meal and special fellowship and you go home know you helped OUR GIRLS ON THE RUN!

Shawnee Mountain makes it simple, GOD BLESS SHAWNEE MOUNTAIN!

PLEASE KEEP ED KRAWITZ IN YOUR HEARTS AND PRAYERS!!!!

Here is a race report from one of our local top tier Triathletes sharing his experience at the New York City Triathlon on 7/18. THANK YOU BRIAN!

FROM BRIAN WINOT:
It is not uncommon to have thoughts like: “why on earth am I doing this to myself” or “when I get out of the water I’m not going onto the bike” during a triathlon. As Phil Legit would say, “when those thoughts creep in, you need to zip them into your suitcase of pain and make sure they can’t get out”. Sunday at mile 7 on the bike course of the NYC triathlon those thoughts got out of my suitcase and when the straw for my Speedfill hydration system bent down towards the ground and sprayed me with Infinite Jet Fuel making my leg sticky for the 3rd time in 7 miles I pulled over and ended my day early. First DNF in 8 years of racing.

Diving deeper into the events leading up to those moments have given me solace that my training and fitness were right but dinner the night before was WAY wrong and my head is/was not in a good place this year.

Training/fitness: A few of us are coached by local multi-sport coach and all around fitness guru Adam Coffman. This season, with no 70.3 races scheduled, Adam changed up our training and reduced our overall volume while boosting our intensity. I am a numbers guy and use all kinds of gadgets to track my fitness: Garmin Vector power pedals, heart rate monitor, and foot pod that all get collected by my 910xt and fed into Training Peaks. I never used to race until my Training Peaks CTL was above 80 for the year. Last year, my first under Adam, my CTL was 84 through most of the season. I set PR’s at the 70.3, 5K, 10K, and half marathon distances. This year my CTL is staying lower, around 70, and while I can still swim, bike and run with the same power and pace as last year, in the back of my head I think about my current CTL number when I start to get tired during an event!!

Night before: NYC tri is a bit of a logistical challenge to say the least. The host hotel is 25 blocks or so from the transition and there is no parking near the transition. Once again this year, we rode our bikes over to transition to rack them. After which I needed to get a few minute run to loosen my legs. The run felt good albeit short because it is tough to run in the city! Here’s where the problems started!! Tony Muscarello made our dinner choice, a very nice little Italian place near the hotel. Looked great, packed with people, what could go wrong?? Chicken parm over pasta and 2 glasses of wine. All was well heading to bed for an early 3:50 rise. At 1:30 I woke up with a very bad headache and nausea — NOT good. I forgot my travel bag at home so no Advil was available. Despite this, I was able to fall back asleep, hoping for the best. The same person who picked our dinner spot supplied me with four Advil about 2.5 hours before the race start. Not feeling well I thought I could still push through especially since the race was only an Olympic distance.

By start time I was feeling a bit better — my headache had subsided at least. As normal, I took a gel about ten minutes from swim start. Unfortunately my stomach did not like that. Because of the 700 yard run from swim out to transition I decided this year (and last) to do the current assisted swim without my wetsuit. I lined up with the first 15 men in my age group and hit the water. The 73 degree water felt good even without the wetsuit. Per normal, I go out hard to start (first 200 yards) then look to settle in on the second pack’s feet. First sighted at 100 meters and noticed I was in the lead pack but at the tail end. I also noticed that we weren’t getting much of a push from the current. At 300 meters, I noticed that the lead pack was gone and I had drifted left. The Hudson River is not the clearest body of water I’ve ever swam in so sighting off others is impossible. By the time I got back to the outside (where the best current usually is), I realized that this was going to be longer than the previous year’s swim (last year I swam 15:03 or :55 per 100 meters). I also had been completely dropped by not only the lead pack but also by the second group as well! I was beginning to struggle. I noticed I was swimming next to a guy and neither of us were making progress against each other. So, naturally, I fell back behind him to let him work while I drafted. Here is where the current became evident. Being behind him shielded him from the current and pushed me over his back. So much for drafting! I finished the swim in 21:40, well off from last year’s swim but still in the top 50.

Transition in NYC can really cost you time. You have to be ready to get out of the water and make the 1/3 mile run to transition. If you don’t train to run that far, and hard, right off a swim, it can really throw you. Fortunately for me, I was able to cut 3:00 of last years’ transition time. I felt good getting on the bike.

Once out of transition you have to ride easy along a narrow path split between bikes leaving and swimmers coming in. You then make a hard right hand turn and ride up a small steep climb to the West Side Highway. My goal was to ride a 1:14 or better this year. Getting on the highway and up to speed my legs felt sluggish. I figured that I just needed to give it a few miles. At a few miles in, on the long 2% climb, doing 22.8 MPH at 245 watts, good speed, good watts, I began to ask myself, “Why is my heart rate so high?” and “Why does my stupid straw keep falling over like that?” At five miles in I became even more jaded: “Why would you ever pay somebody to LET you do this to yourself?”, “Why do my legs hurt so bad?”, and “Why am I only now doing 19 MPH on a 4% hill and my power is over 400 watts?” Still, though, I kept telling myself to just keep going and that I will be fine. “Stupid straw”, I kept thinking. “Man my legs hurt.” “Uh oh, my stomach is getting upset.” “I told you Training Peaks was right, you’re not in shape for this race.” And finally, “F@#K THIS, I’M done.”

After going through all the end race logistics we got back to the hotel, ate some lunch, and left the city. I was immediately sick after eating lunch and slept the entire car ride home. At home, I promptly went to bed. It was 4:30 in the afternoon. I woke up Monday morning at 10:00! And I was still sick. I didn’t eat again until 3:00 pm Monday. I got sick again afterwards.

I have been an athlete my entire life and NEVER a head case. This year has been different. I explained the Training Peaks and changed up training philosophy early in this piece. I was also stressed out know that I am going to Alaska for 15 days in August hunting Brown Bear. That’s a HUGE gap to put in the middle of race season!! Work is also very busy this year and good help is very hard to find. All of this stressed me out. I have met many great people in this sport and have several very high level professional athletes to talk to. Mark, Tony and Rodrigo helped me sort out what went wrong Sunday. Adam and I had lunch and reassessed my season on Tuesday and today I had a conversation with Jessie Thomas about getting back to why I started doing triathlon. TO RELIEVE EVERYDAY STRESS, not create more!! Exercise is supposed to be my Prozac, it isn’t supposed to add to the stress!! Thanks Jessie, great reminder!!

Thank goodness for my loving, supportive, beautiful wife who makes it possible for me to leave for work every day at 6:00 and not get home from training until almost 8:00 pm. Without her unwavering support none of this would be possible.

With my big gap coming for Alaska and not knowing what kind of shape I would be in coming home, I didn’t schedule anything for September or October, leaving this season as basically a failure! Adam fixed that: “Hey, how about a fall marathon to get your training boosted up?” I told him that I had no interest in running that far. But then, wait… “Rod, Tony, Mark… how about a marathon?” Rod: “I’m in!” Mark: “Nope, but I’ll gladly train with you!” Tony: “Definite maybe!”

This morning I signed up for the Las Vegas marathon on November 15th!

Next year will be different!! Our A race is in the UK at ITU Leeds. A race with the big boys one month out from the Rio Olympics. I can guarantee you that my suitcase of pain will be zippered up tight! What I thought was one moment of weakness turned out to be months of little things adding up and one bad piece of chicken!!! Thanks Tony!!!

Thank you,

http://my1.raceresult.com/41861/?lang=#1_9C0986

2015 QUIET VALLEY ROOSTER RUN 5K
The Conboy Clan showed up and took no prisoners! Amy was first woman, 6th overall.
Even Griswold took 2nd over all for the second time in 3 years!
Ed Bermudez took first in age! Boy is he gettin’ old!
Part of Team Fair was there! (the young part)
Dion “the warrior” Campbell, what can I say about Dion, he simple doesn’t give up!
Check out the results there are many local there!

http://cvraceseries.us/Results/Results.php?event_id=226

I toss jokes at Dion but I love and respect the man! With a long history of fine running behind him he continues to train and race with a pair of knees that would cause most “normal” people to retire! Yep, another joke, there’s nothing normal about Dion!

When we started PARC I highly recommended Dion to be our first President but most didn’t know him as well as I did, so they did him the favor of not selecting him!

Dion knees makes me think of a peculiar situation I’ve been in more often than I like, perhaps y’all have been also. It can be a family gathering or any social setting. Someone says have you run any races lately? You respond yes, I just ran a 5K, marathon, or an ultra marathon, someone quickly responds ‘oh I could never do that!” Trying to be supportive you say something like “oh I’m sure you could if you want to!”
Now for the next 10 minutes to maybe over an hour you’re saying everything you can think of to build this person up and be supportive! They are expressing negative thoughts and bringing up all kinds of physical limitations that prevent them from just trying to walk to run.

After too many of these experiences I’ve come to realize these folks are right! They just can’t do it, no how no way! Soon you realize their “I could never do that” rant had nothing to do with running or walking, they really just wanted to be the center of attention! They are envious of your accomplishments and hope to make you feel sympathy for their inabilities! Perhaps even just make you feel a little guilty!

I’ve never had any good luck helping anyone that uses the “I could never do that” mentality. It’s been a total waste of time attempting to help them! Soooooooo, I’ve come up with a simple response that phrase! Y’all may use it if you care to!!

I’M SORRY; IT SURE MUST SUCK TO BE YOU!
Amen!

“stuff ‘round the mill”
Doubt, fear of failure is a terrible foe!

As Lynn and I wrapped up our brick workout Saturday morning, in the rain and lightening she offered the experience of having someone ask her “what are you trying to prove?”

My standard response to that question is “if a person doesn’t get it themselves you can’t explain it to them!” I can’t explain why I done many of the events and training workouts I’ve done. I only know they have been a blessing to me, even the ones I’ve fallen short and failed to complete! I can’t put into words the sense of accomplishment and satisfaction I hold deep inside of me for each and every effort that many folks laugh at and think were stupid! I hold dearly my accomplishments! I treasure the lessons I learned in my failures! Many days I wish those I love and adore could share the joy I found at the edge of extreme!

I commented to Lynn how proud I was of her and her completion of the 5 repeats, I only did 3. She said “you say that to everyone, you’re proud of everyone!”

She nailed! I learned it from Ed Krawitz! I think it’s a comfort to have someone say they are proud of you, so I do it as OFTEN as I can! But really, the truth is whatever Itze or Rod thinks of you the only persons thoughts that REALLY count are HOW DO YOU THINK OF YOU! ARE YOU PROUD OF YOU!?!?

Be proud in your success and learn from your failures! Neither lasts for long! Exercise your PRIDE! BE PROUD! YOU ARE WORTH THE EFFORT!!

WEEKEND RESULTS:
UNCLE DAVE’S ICE CREAM JOG ‘N HOG – those I’ve heard from that were there said it was a smooth and creamy day! Some didn’t seem the like the 3 /1/2 mile run part very much!

NEW YORK CITY TRI – http://www.nyctri.com/
Rodrigo Sagastegui – age 42 – swim 1.5K 25:17 – bike 40K 1:26:34 – run 10K 1:15:41 – 3:24:33
Mark Jefcoat – 63 – swim 1.5K 23:08 – bike 40K 1:15:17 run 10K 1:00:27
FROM TONY – Rod, it was not a good day for me. I had a DNF. I blew a tire out on the course, which was no problem. Changed the tube but the side wall of the tire was blown out as well. I sat on the side of the road and waited for bike support for about 45 min or so and they had to wait to get another tire. By that time I was done. I know its not about the time but my focus was gone. I put my bike in the truck and the guy gave me a ride back to transition. It was hard to hand that chip over but I knew I was done. I actually landed up assisting about 5 bikers with the bike support guy. That was a fun experience. Always another day. Not sure I’ll do NYC again my stomach and throat has been messed up since the race. That Hudson River water is no good.

FROM ROD – I LOVE that Hudson River water! One of my favorite and best memories happened in that water! Really big smile here! During the same day I had one of the best experiences of my life only to fail miserably at the later stages of the event! What a blessing it was, what a lesson for my life!

THIS WEEK & WEEKEND:
07/26 – IRONMAN LAKE PLACID – So far I know of Lisa Pizzuto and George Fair (Sr? George’s dad) doing this year!

FROM LISA PIZZUTO – Let me say one thing about this running / cycling community…..everyone is so supportive. I was just saying to my mom the other day that during the entire year that I have only run a few times alone and have never biked alone. Lynn has been a Godsend. Whenever I need to ride, she is there. Even the weekend my usual riding crew (Lynn, Linda, Frank, Charlie, and Rhonda) did the longest day New Jersey ride, Tony picked me up and we went out together. I’m pretty sure the 16 miles to and from his house that day were the only times I’ve ridden alone in a year. I’ve had running support from so many people around town. Gina, Mike and Jim were responsible for my mid-week tempo runs mostly because once Jim feels good he drops the hammer. Weekend marathon training was predominately with John and Joel. After RFR, Joel even did several more long runs with me to get me through the bulk of the long run days. Masters swimmers and my crew that I go to Dutch Springs with have saved me from swimming alone as well. I think back on how this training has gone and it has been so easy because I’ve had friends to do everything with. I’m a very social person and having friends to share the experience with is the thing that has made this trip so worthwhile to me. I will carry that support with me this weekend in Lake Placid. I hope to make everyone proud and cross the finish line still being conscious enough to hear “Lisa Pizzuto you are an Ironman!”

I’ll let you know how it goes Monday.

Lisa

FROM ROD – Lisa spends most of her life’s energy and times helping others become the best athlete’s they can be! It is her life, and she loves it! She’s heavenly good at it! May all our prayers and kind wishes be with her as she finishes this dream, this challenge!
WE LOVE YOU LISA (coach!)

“stuff ‘round the mill”

You folks, you Road and Trail runners, you really are a different kind of people.

In every sport the interest is in the winner, EVERYBODY loves the winners! We’ll stand in line and sometimes pay fairly large sums of money to be there to see the winner, the record setter, and we will pat each other on the back in celebration when our team wins as if we were part of the effort. Many will get up and leave long before the event is over if the outcome is obvious. A very few may be interested in the second or third place finishers, but for most when the clock runs out or the winner is decided the event is over and everyone is headed for the gates.

I guess this speaks to, and gives us insight about the makeup of people whose reason for celebration lies solely in winning.

But what about us folks who participate in road and/or trail 5K’s through multi hour and multi day running events?

In our local 5K’s as well as throughout our country the winner is generally finished well under 20 minutes, followed by age groupers generally all in during the following 10 minutes. In some events we have people working very hard simply to complete the course and to finish in an hour or longer. The new phenomenon comes in that today each one is being cheered along by everyone from the winners down through the entire race field and all families and friends. The winners over all and age groupers have finished and are celebrating their win with laughter and chatter and sports drink and snack while they many times head back out onto the course cheering for each and EVERY participant! We celebrate the fastest through the slowest of us or I guess it could be said the least of us.

Think about the marathon, our marathon the Pocono Red Cross Marathon as an example. The male winner enters the stadium around 2 hours and 20 minutes after the start gun goes off, the female winner shortly thereafter. In most competitions the race would be over. But wait, we still have age groupers! How we size up in our particular age group is very important to us and our community, it’s a matter of accomplishment! It is a matter of pride!

Then there are the hard charging Boston Qualifiers’ with no stake in the race outcome, they are there to achieve one glorious moment and the satisfaction of qualifying and earning the privilege to run in the greatest marathon event ever! A runner can be last in age, but if he or she qualifies for Boston it has been a GLORIOUS day! I remember few achievements I am proud of than my first BQ!

Some, depending on age and gender, are qualifying for Boston with times up to 5 hours. In the 10 years of the Pocono Marathon we’ve had finishers over 7 hours, I know because I was one of them.

The time commitment of an event is not only for we who run! The time commitment is shared by race staff, the volunteers, family friends, and people that simply love to run and love running events stand in attendance to encourage and assist each and every athlete at all levels: sometimes in the cruelest of weather conditions.

Add a couple of hours before the event starts setting up and a few hours of breaking down after the event is over and you have one long hard potentially frustrating full day! Yet when it’s over we delight in the memories of most every moment, regardless of the frustration at any given time.

We are people who delight in completing our mission no matter the level of our achievements! We work hard to contribute to our charity! We want to run, but we also want to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate than we are!

In the end it’s about our community and people being and doing the best we can! And when the whole process is over we hold high our greatest asset, our people and our community! Y’all lift up and cheer the best of us though the least of us.

What does that say about the kind of people y’all are! You are a special people!! Please keep on being the BLESSING y’all are !!!!!

FROM ELISSA:
I ran this last year. Nice event that some might enjoy if you want to fwd out. They gave out free pint glasses and growlers and one free beer last year.
09/05 – DRAUGHT DAY IN NEWBURGH – http://vintageruns.com/203-2/newburgh-draught-day-5-mile-detail-page/

RUN THE BRIDGE! On November 8th, the 2nd annual Across the Bay 10k will take place. If you didn’t make it last year, you can look forward to a great event that includes crossing the bay bridge on foot and rocking out to live music when you finish!

Every participant gets shuttle transportation, finish line food, a commemorative event tech shirt and finish line medal.

We love having groups come together on the bridge! We love it even more when they support a great cause while doing so. To show our support of groups that run for a cause, we are giving a $500 prize to the running club or team that raises the most $ for charity through this event.

“stuff ‘round the mill”

Cowabonga! We had seven folks take a crack at the Mill Rat’s brick workout Sunday! Sue Gehris and Tony Muscarello completed the entire course with Tony, Lynn, & Jim adding a few miles and 3 serious dirt mound climbs to the bike course! I had the fun of sharing the road and some serious glares with a big ol’ black bear! Fortunately he wasn’t in the mood for a Rod snack!

This weekend due to the amateur ice cream event in Philly we will move the brick workout to Saturday at 7am but at the Morey School parking lot. We’ll be doing a different style brick then we’ve done before. We will be borrowing from Jeff Silvernale, a workout he told me about several years ago. It’s a workout he enjoys and reaps reward from.

We will ride 5 miles then run 1 mile. Repeat five times (more or less as you desire!). The bike ride will begin and end at the traffic light at the intersection of Dreher and Main St and will simple be the Law Day Race course, but clockwise! The 1 mile run will be around the school lot, next to no traffic. I can’t tell what it is until I figure it out, that will be by Friday.

Please join us for all or any part and please feel free to modify any parts to suit your training! We’re just out there doin’ what boys and girls love to do, we’re gettin’ our fill of sun and fun!

Like any Mill event we still go to Wawa for coffee, chocolate milk, or a BFS afterwards!

“stuff ‘round the mill”

I like to tell y’all a bit more about the YMCA Freedom Fest 5K. My understanding is there is a new race director. The race director wasn’t at the 5K; previous commitment is what I suspect. Not all the T’s were crossed and the I’s weren’t all dotted. The police were not present to safely make our route passable. Judge Zulick made a 911 call and the police were immediately there, they made our passage much safer!

My belief is the police showing up promptly had NOTHING to do with Art being am honorable Judge! It was because it is their CALLING, it is their job and they take their job heavenly seriously!

As you run or walk PLEASE, salute or wave to our officers! They are a blessing to our lives, to our community! There is no pay NEARLY equal to the security they work to bring us!

My summer vacation is over. It lasted one glorious week! I did not get all the work that needs to be done around my home completed, but I tried! My training suffered, I simply didn’t have the energy required to get what I got done at my home and train seriously as I had hoped. As my friend Phil Svoboda says “say-lah-vee”! He spells it in a goofy way! I sure miss him; he was an inspiring though goofy mill rat!! Now he hangs out on the west coast and he rarely runs anymore. If he was closer I’d hunt him down and drag is rat tail out for a run!

My core work, beer and ice cream, I didn’t do so well there either, my heart wasn’t in it! A lot of people I care about deeply are having their faith tested, they are having difficult times. In almost each case their woes seem to limit their training! I repeat Phil’s words “say-lah-vee”!

I did get some of my teeth fixed, but there’s more work to do on them too! Thank God for good dentists!

I’m finding it hard to complete things that once were just a matter of digging a little deeper. Ya know, maybe it still is just a matter of digging a little deeper!? Ignore the heat! It’s not that hot!? Maybe I just gotta quit whining and get to work!

FROM DEBBIE LENNOX: pretty cool stuff!!

“stuff ‘round the mill”

My factory is closed this week; this is my vacation week for the year. I am working at home fixin’ stuff!

During my vacation weeks I love to hammer my training extra hard and this year I emphasizing building my core. The essence of my core work is drinking beer and eating ice cream! I have met this beautiful wisp of a young lady that assures me that Guinness Stout with several scoops of Dutch chocolate ice cream is the best ice cream float EVER! She’s not much of runner but I’ll report back to y’all soon as to the float!

Lynn and I are working on plans to cycle from the Ohio boarder to the NY State boarder on route 6 which is 403 miles. Plans are to do it sometime between mid October and early November. Not to worry, it is downhill with the wind at your back! (For several miles)

THIS WEEK & WEEKEND:
STROUDSBURG YMCA FREEDOM FESTIVAL 5K
The website says the results are there but I can’t get into them? – http://www.readysetrun.com/
It rained but spirits weren’t damped. Shirts pants shoes and socks sure were! I made the 5K miles 7.5 thru 10.6 of my normal 12 mile Sat morning run. The good news is that I moved me up in the overall standings from last year though, I was still last! The bad news is we had a poor turnout of local runners! Where was everyone!?!?

FROM WOODY: THANK YOU WOODY!!
YMCA of EASTON, PHILLIPSBURG & VICINITY – 17th Annual Family YMCA Firecracker 4-Miler Run/Walk – Fairview Park – http://www.greatervalleyymca.org/

FROM BILL GAA: THANK YOU BILL!!
The Mile has returned to Matamoras!!!!

Because of the nature of the event, there are no “official” records of the Matamoras Mile. On July second 22 people met at the large pavilion in Matamoras Airport Park to run an out and back course. There were runners, walkers, strollers and those wearing sandals participating. The first person to finish the mile was in 6:23 and the last person returned in around 22 minutes. All participants got a ribbon for their efforts.

The Matamoras Mile will be held the next three (3) Thursdays in July–9, 16 & 23. All runs will start at 6 pm & there is NO fee for participating.

For those of us who didn’t know the Rev 3 swim will be in the Delaware River this year! Is that cool or what!!
