stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
The more I run, the more I want to run, and the more I live a life conditioned and influenced and fashioned by my running. And the more I run, the more certain I am that I am heading for my real goal: to become the person I am. – George Sheehan

George Sheehan’s writing influenced a lot of runners’ lives.

The above quote is in Amby Burfoot’s book titled The Runners Guide to the Meaning of Life. It’s a short book long on information and inspiration! There are several Sheehan quotes in the book, Sheehan’s thoughts obviously touch Amby whose thoughts I find inspiring. I suspect many of you would find Amby’s book a very worthwhile read.

Here’s a website where cyclists hookup for rides.

I have a pretty standard system I use to get a Christmas gift for Grammie. I make a mental list of the things I think she may want. I than sneak around the house and almost always find she has several of each of the items I thought to buy her. Soooooo in the end I give her the one thing a girl can never has too much of, cash! Good old, you can spend it anytime, anywhere, American currency! It’s the one thing you can still be fairly certain was made here in America! I did hear there will soon be some Walmart’s with banks in them soon so our money will probably soon be made in China also. Oh well, say la vee. There I go speaking French again but spelling it in English. Phil???

Does anybody have an event scheduled this weekend?
Some are now coming into week 17 of their Boston preparation. Many of us have a little over 3 weeks left of base training before beginning our 18 week programs for the 10th Pocono Marathon! Life is good when you keep a heapin’ helpin’ of running in it! Put a smile on your face and join us at the Mill if you’ve don’t have an event this weekend! 7:30 am daily.

At the USATF NATIONAL JUNIOR OLYMPIC CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS it turns out that Amy Conboy ran the event with one shoe. Somebody stepped on her foot at the start and the shoe came off. Amy had the presence of mind and courage to hold herself together and run. No whining here, it was what it was. There’s little doubt this girl has talent, but more importantly she is of good character, she has guts!

I am not only a major fan of Team Conboy/Garrett but I also am a big proponent of the Jr. Olympic Program. I spent a lot of time competing and coaching Olympic Weightlifting. Our sons, Steve and Scott, each won four National Championships and set many national records in The Jr. Olympic program. The Jr. Olympic Program helped our sons develop the good character which turned them into the fine men that are today.

Does anybody have an event scheduled this weekend?

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful. – Margaret J. Wheatley

I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting recently, perhaps some of it has been a little pity party. My body is changing in ways that really make me unhappy! My expectations seem as high as ever but when I set about the old practices that once served me well I have found negative responses and setbacks that I never had to deal with before.

When my running was about competition with others as well as with myself I was always over joyed to hear of my competitors taking days off or weeks off for recovery. I loved to hear how some took a day off for every mile they ran after a marathon. I believed ever day they took off that I was either pulling myself a little closer to them or pushing me a little father ahead of them!

My training week was primarily 5 days per week, at least 2 of them double workouts. Anytime I spent in my home gym with the weights wasn’t training time, it was my special time, I really love lifting! Usually before a major event at 8 to 10 weeks out I would go to 6 days running while at 6 weeks I’ go to 7 days a week of running.

I don’t recommend running 7 days a week for athletes who are race enthusiasts. I don’t think 7 days week, week in and week out are healthy if your goal is to get faster at any distance.

I don’t remember when it first happened but I do remember Grammie saying “are you going running today?” While I would try as politely as possible say “yes” in my mind the thought floated around to say “did the sun not come up this morning?” Did the earth come to an end? Am I dead!? Do you really live with me, have you been paying attention?

There had been a change. Running for me wasn’t any longer about beating anyone else or even my own times or distances. Running itself had become pure satisfaction, pure joy! I put a smile on my face and run until I feel it going away. That is when I know I’ve run far enough, it’s time to get back to other matters of living.

The fact is each day I will run, or try to run, some days my body won’t tolerate running. I may put a smile on my face but the pain says this isn’t doing your body good so do something that doesn’t hurt so much. Those days are elliptical and weightlifting and stationary cycling days. It has always been my nature to do most all of those things I love to what many may consider excess! I don’t agree, if I can do it how can it be excess?

As the time passes it has become the most important to me to be thankful! I am thankful for running and I am thankful for this community and each and every member of it! I hope and pray the good Lord above never allows me to never take anyone or anything for granted! We have so many special people amongst us, like each and every one of YOU!

Please join me in kind thoughts and prayers for those in our community in need of healing!

Here’s a pretty cool weekend line up! Good luck to everyone racing! Lets run!

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
What cancer cannot do:
It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corrode faith
It cannot eat away peace
It cannot destroy confidence
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot shut out memories
It cannot silence courage
It cannot reduce eternal life
It cannot quench the spirit

WEEKEND RESULTS:
GIRLS ON THE RUN 5K WAS SPECTACULAR! If it’s possible for you to see too many smiling faces this may not be an event for you. The happiness and joy, the feelings of accomplishment, and the pride of the girls and their families and loved ones is over flowing!

There is sentiment today that the “everybody is a winner” philosophy of recent years is being carried too far and our children are too cuddled, too sheltered from reality. This concern troubles me at times and while I think about it a lot, I don’t have an opinion to offer here.

I do have an opinion about GOTR. There are no losers! There are only winners! From the leadership, throughout all the girls and their families’, to and including those of us who volunteer to be a part of their events, everyone wins! IF you’ve been there you know I’m right. If you think I’m wrong please do yourself a huge favor and come to a GOTR event and judge for yourself!

Attached is the one picture I have of the event. It is of Clodagh Conboy as she fly’s by a Scott Ewing Timing Team volunteer whose cheering may be lifting Clodagh a just a little higher! Can you feel the pride and joy!? It was repeated over and over and over, almost 300 times!

Dolores Everett and STAFF, y’all are a BLESSING!

This was Mike’s first marathon and he qualified for Boston. Earlier this year in his first half marathon at the VIA half he qualified for the NYC marathon.

MERRY CHRISTMAS 50K/6 HOUR ULTRA – many new personal bests were achieved. There was much laughter. There was joy and good times shared.

For most all of us the biggest gift of the day was the presence of Alyssa O’Malley. I may get punched by her for telling y’all this, but Alyssa is in the midst of a mighty struggle against cancer, a struggle ALYSSA WILL WIN!

Cancer attacks the body, the mind, and your will! Cancer wants your soul! Please join with Alyssa and her husband Joe in thought and in prayer as together they work to defeat this intruder!

Alyssa WE LOVE YOU DEARLY!

Running may reverse aging in certain ways, a noteworthy new study of active older people finds, while walking does not.

“stuff ‘round the mill”
“Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, months and years they spend preparing for it. The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character”
T Alan Armstrong

Folks, I missed a lot of people in the Philly event. The search engine and I did not work well together. Thanks to Rob and others helping me, I hope I’m catching up!
FROM ROB:
Rod, (some editing)
We had quite a few people from the West End that ran Philly. Brodheadsville and Gilbert. My wife (Amy) and her group from Forward motion (7 women) all ran their first marathon this past weekend. You had few listed from Effort and Saylorsburg. I myself ran the half, I don’t see Trish (Ready Set Run) and Stacey from Stroudsburg listed.

GIRLS ON THE RUN GRADUATION!

12/06 – GIRLS ON THE RUN GRADUATION!

On a recent run I found myself thinking about the GOTR graduation Saturday. It’s a monumental event in the course of events in our running community though it’s not just about running! GOTR is more importantly a program that uses running to help forge our young girls into happy, healthy, confident, and productive women.

The definition of graduation using it as an intransitive verb is, to pass from one stage of experience, proficiency, or prestige to a usually higher one. This really is appropriate for the girls that will share this graduation.

Sometimes folks think of graduation as being the end. I graduated, I don’t need to do this stuff anymore. When it comes to running and fitness, a girl should think about graduating from “girls on the run” as being an end to running and staying fit! Truth is a girl isn’t old enough to consider an end to running and her pursuit of fitness before her age is well into triple digits!

Running should be part of a girl’s daily routine no matter what her age! A healthy dose of running adds to a girl’s aura and to her charm! Running aids her focus on life and its many challenges! Running can be her satisfaction and her reward during troubled times when there may not many other happenings in her life that are fulfilling! Running can be a girl’s best friend, when times are good or bad. Running can keep the “girl” alive and vibrant in a woman, no matter her station in life.

Our Pocono girls on the run program started small with a very kind hearted and dedicated group of women with vision that saw and felt a need to start this program here in Monroe County! Their numbers have grown as they have continuously been joined by more and more caring women as the years pass by and the program grows.

The women and girls that participate in the GOTR program are precious, they are special, form the youngest to the oldest! Thank you for this glorious work you continue to do, may the program continue to grow and touch the hearts, minds, and lives of our girls! Y’all are a true BLESSING!

Please come run/walk/volunteer with us on our GOTR special day

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”

I had a nasty slip and fall Friday morning while running. It put a hole in the back of my head. I owe special thanks to Keith Meeker and Howie Frank for cleaning me up! I bleed pretty well and I realize how bad I must have appeared until I asked Howie if I looked too bad to go to WAWA for coffee. I mean we run until our skin and clothes are white with salt crust and we stink to high heaven and we STILL go to WAWA for coffee!! Howie didn’t reply, he just looked away…

I eventually went to the hospital for a cat scan and staples to close it up. They gave me some meds that along with an adequate portion of Bushmill (Irish whiskey) gave me 3 night of the best sleep I’ve had in a VERY long time : )

My run reck caused me to consider if I was running in proper form how could I fall backwards and hit the back of my head? I mean if I was leaning forward at my ankles and striding forward properly it didn’t make sense I would fall backwards!? Even if my forward foot slipped at most I should have done a split and momentum should have carried me forward, RIGHT!?!?!?!?

So Saturday morning I stayed in and ran on my treadmill so I could concentrate on my form, leaning forward at my ankles. I wound up running a 5 fat miles at a 1 mpm pace quicker than I have done recently.

Sunday morning I waited until close to 10 am when the ice had softened or was almost completely gone to go out for a careful 10 miles. I concentrated on my form/lean at the ankles and a fat 12.5 miles later I found I had run 2 mpm quicker pace than I had run that relative distance in the past 3 or 4 years. Bonus points came with my knee pain being greatly reduced after the run! I was RUNNING! I was HAPPY!

Anyhow, a while back I reported here that Sarah Rusk made a training program switch to the Hanson Marathon plan. So I asked her if she is happy with the Hanson Marathon training program she has been following, as we have several locals thinking about trying it. Following is some of her reply:

I am so happy with it!!!!! Tell them it’s tough but it will “get the job done.” I would def say it’s for a more experienced runner since you don’t run over 16 miles. If I were a first time marathoner I’m not sure I’d be too comfortable with that.

While you can find the Hanson’s programs here: http://www.hansons-running.com/training-plans/beginner-training-plan/ I do recommend you purchase their book and read it. I have it, it’s choked full of good stuff! I believe I’ve seen the book at Ready Set Run.

Joelle Fair will be joining Sarah using the Hanson’s plan training for Boston 2015 beginning on 12/14. GOOD LUCK TO BOTH SARAH & JOELLE!!!

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
“The advice I have for beginners is the same philosophy that I have for runners of all levels of experience and ability — consistency, a sane approach, moderation and making your running an enjoyable, rather than dreaded, part of your life.” – Bill Rodgers, winner of four Boston and four NYC marathons

I dropped by the mill this morning for a quick strider workout. Bobby Mac, you gotta hurry back! Get healed quickly and get your bee-hind back to the Mill! The rats are really goofin’ off! They sit in their cars until way after 7:30, then get out scatchin’ and pickin’ at un-named parts of their bodies! No one warms up, they can barely squeak clearly. They are pathetic without their rat leader Bobby!
