“stuff ‘round the mill”
All kids need is a little help, a little hope and somebody who believes in them.
Earvin Magic Johnson
There was an Award Ceremony for four talented runners after the Hot Chocolate Run at Ready Set Run last evening. A whole bunch of really wonderful people came out and honored Taylor Garrett, Amy Conboy, Ciara Conboy, and Clodagh Conboy all of whom competed in The Junior Olympic National Cross Country Championships in Myrtle Beach SC this past December.
Tony Muscarello the President of the Pocono Area Running Club presented plaques to the girls in honor of their collective running achievements while Dave Parker presented a Certificate of Achievement Award signed by State Representatives David Parker himself, Rosemary Brown, Jack Rader, and State Senator Mario Scavello.
It was a proud magical moment for the girls, their families, and all in attendance. The attached picture is out of focus, I shook a bit, but it’s good enough to show the joy in the girl’s eyes.
Tony and all PARC members, Dave, Rosemary, Jack, and Mario, you guys really rock! THANK YOU! Y’all are a blessing to this community!
Ready Set Run, Trish and Stephany, y’all are the best hosts ever and you are a double blessing to this community! THANK YOU!!! Saying thank you feels so inadequate! I’m so proud of the programs you put on!

Sunday’s – second (midday) running group:
Dion Campbell and Anya have volunteered to lead this run group. Dion is for 12 noon and he feels, and I agree, that a different meeting place is also in order, so does anyone have a suggestion?
NEXT SUNDAY Super Bowl Sunday, John Staub and Ed Bermudez will be doing the Mill to Mill Run. At 7am they will leave American Ribbon and run over the dirt mounds to Roseto where they will touch the sign on my mill and then run back to American Ribbon again. It’s a fat 19 mile run with gentile inclines and declines. You’re invited to join them if you care to.
