“We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they’re called memories. Some take us forward, they’re called dreams.” – Jeremy Irons

As a response to my plans for a 6 hour event Jeff Silvernale sent the following which I believe is an excellent idea. It could even be turned into a cool monthly summer series.

FROM JEFF – A 6 hour run is way too long for me – as is 3 hr, but I love running at Zac pond and now that they’ve added some distance I think a race (or run) over there would be cool. Laps are good for spectators and relays.

A relay could be fun with each person doing a lap and handing off a rock as a baton. Maybe a 5-person team to include representatives from each era – U18, U30, U45, U60, 61+, or alternately no restrictions on team size or make-up and each team can decide when they want to hand off the baton (that sounds like fun and a lot more like a race you’d organize anyway – with ice cream). Actually, now that I think about it, it would be pretty tough (like intervals) to run a 1 mile leg of a relay and then keep doing that every 2nd or 5th runner. I’m thinking I could do maybe 3-5 miles of intervals so a 1 mile course with 3-5 members is in the half-marathon category and I’m sure that could extend to a marathon. And it would be over much faster than a half or full and the social aspect would last nearly the entire run (for those waiting anyway).

I’m not saying 3 or 6 hours wouldn’t be a neat thing, just not for me.

stuff ’round the mill

- stuff ’round the mill
When in doubt or danger, run in circles, scream and shout. – Laurence J. Peter

The just for giggles and stones 6 hour run/walk: ya don’t have to scream and shout but you will be running in circles.

My thoughts about the 6 hour event site have changed. I’ve developed a 1 mile figure 8 loop at Zacharias Pond in E Burg. It’s on 3 surfaces, black top, grass, and packed gravel trail, all of which are completely free of motor vehicles. Well over half of the loop is under the shade of trees. There’s a pavilion, porta potties, and plenty of goose and duck poop for the kids to play in. I’m working on permission.

I haven’t determined a date yet but I’m thinking a Saturday with a 6 am start – noon finish.
Rock awards to the person who racks up the most miles at 3 hours and 6 hours.
Rock awards to all who exceed 50K or 31.069 miles within the 6 hour limit.
Whiners and complainers get rocked!
Those who don’t care to run can sit, cut bait, and fish. There’s the choice of 2 ponds.

FROM SARAH – Hi Rod – results are posted for Linda creed breast cancer 5K on
www.breastcancerrally.org

FROM LISA FLORY- Thanks a million!

Again I have to say that the caring for this community and the giving of your time has blown me away! With the amount of volunteers that we had show up to put on this race tonight we could have scored at least three races. Numerous people thanked me for the time we put in to see this go off smoothly. I really can’t thank all of you enough for showing up. Every time we go to a race and one after another of you show up I am so happy!! I know it’s kind of crazy since we don’t need to have so many of us there but I feel like it’s a pretty awesome sight to see all of you there wearing your orange and keeping Scott’s spirit alive!

To top it all off, we raised $7000.00 dollars for Officer Torre’s family just off the race participants tonight….with threats of torrential downpours and flash floods. You guys really do rock!! Thanks to each and every one of you.

Now you can have a little break before the next race which will be the Shawnee Mud Run on August 16th. As an added bonus our PARC member and Mud Run race director Jim Tust has given us 6 entries for the mud run to be used by orange team members or their family members. I will let the first 6 members that respond to this email have one entry per family to the Shawnee Mud Run. Please let me know if you want them…SOON!!

THE POCONO RECORD – this morning’s record on line has a bunch of pictures from the Ruben Torres & Family event last night.

The pictures are magnificent to say the least. They display the depth, width, and the heart of running and runners here in our community. This is a pictorial display for those contemplating taking up running and how they might fit into our running and fitness community.

There are runners racing at all out capacity with the strain and effort showing on their faces. There are racers running nearly all out, but saving just a bit, enough to offer a proud smile along the way. There are many racing for age group awards. Many are running for fitness and social interaction! Some running to re-gain a degree of civility by blowing off the stress of a difficult day! Some pushing their children in carriages and getting their miles in all the while introducing their children at an early age to the joys of being outdoors as a family. There are those of us who run when we can and walk when need be.

The thing is we are all out there together lovin’ life, adding joy to our community, improving our fitness, and holding up a special man and his family with our works, our thoughts, and our prayers.

Please continue your gracious works, you kind thoughts, your merciful prayers for the Ruben Torres Family!

A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent. —Douglas MacArthur

I believe that in Ruben Torres our community has lost a man such as Douglas MacArthur describes. If you agree bring yourself, your family, and every friend you can and join with us tonight as we honor his memory and contribute to his very special family’s future

FROM TONY – OFFICER RUBEN TORRES MEMORIAL: – Tuesday evening – Next Tuesday evening is the run/walk for Officer Ruben Torres and with his passing yesterday I am sure the event is going to be even larger and more emotional. If you are helping to time the event please meet at Rudy’s parking lot at 4:45 and if you are helping to time the event please meet at 6:00. Thanks to all of you who have said you will be there. All are welcome!!

WEEKEND RESULTS:
LINDA CREED BREAST CANCER 5K – www.breastcancerrally.org
The results aren’t up on line last I checked.

BOILERMAKESHIFT – no running results I’m aware of just yet but there is evidence they must have been a WILD FREAKY PARTY. When I passed through the area Monday morning trees had been knocked down! Route 191 over the dirt mound was closed. I could still feel ground tremor! I haven’t heard of any dead bodies being found so perhaps this may be repeated next year!

BOILERMAKER – http://www.boilermaker.com/ – the old more passive boilermaker. 14,000 runners, but no trees down, no electric lines down, just abandoned old factories most of which I’m sure are still standing! PLENTY of running results! But little to no evidence of any REAL fun!

FRM LISA FLORY – Hello Everyone!

Another one in the books and what a beautiful day it was! Way more of us than we probably needed again but it was awesome to see all of your faces! Great course management from the team again as usual and the almost 300 runners/walkers seemed to have a great time. Gary Smith gave a wonderful little speech about Scott and it touched all of us orange team members to hear the nice things he had to say. I am sending a pic from yesterday that has most of us in it forwarded from Sarah Naughton.

Tuesday night we will be handling the registration and timing for the Ruben Torres 5K down at Rudy’s/Dansbury Park. We should have a great turnout of timing team members and I look forward to timing this event with all of you. 4:45 in the Rudy’s parking lot for those of you helping with registration and then 5:45 for the timing helpers.

Thanks again for all you do! I think Scott would be proud of all of us!!!

Officer Ruben Torres Memorial run/walk

Officer Ruben Torres may have died but his light and the brilliance of his life and his work continues to shine brightly! The family he and his wife created and chose, the community he loved and served, continue to love, honor, and now grieve his loss!

Ruben Torres was just a man. A MAGNIFICENT man! Ruben was filled with courage, compassion, and insight! Ruben was willing to try and succeed at what others may have thought was foolish! But with a never say give up attitude he was in the process of accomplishing hos dreams! Ruben was a superior policeman, he was a far superior human being!

As we gather together Tuesday evening and run and walk and pay tribute to his memory, may our gathering bring comfort to those who were privileged to serve with Ruben. May all who serve and protect our community
be aware that in the event of tragedy this community will not forget the fallen, we will not forget their families, we will do our very best to care for our own!

Registration will begin at 4:45. We need people with willing hands and willing hearts. There are many ways you can help with this event, especially with registration as there has been no pre-registration. At this point Tony Muscarello and Lisa Flory would be the contact people to volunteer. Please come, find them, and ask how you can help.

I don’t know if it can be, but if the State Police Drill Team were available to join us, they are SPECTACULAR!

May the Light of the world shine brightly on our celebration of the life of Rueben Torres and his blessed family! May this humble gathering, and our continuing efforts, help with his families healing! May our assembly, our words, and our deeds pay tribute and bring honor to this exceptionally honorable man’s love of life!

OFFICER RUBEN TORRES MEMORIAL: NEXT WEEK – Tuesday evening – Next Tuesday evening is the run/walk for Officer Ruben Torres and with his passing yesterday I am sure the event is going to be even larger and more emotional.

FROM MIKE CORRELL – JOG AND HOG – http://www.jognhog.com/events/philadelphia/
Hey Rod if you are up to it and would like to go I signed up for the Jog and Hog July 19th, the whole hogger.. a full quart of ice cream!!! I’ll head down that morning as I believe it is a 8:30 AM start.

ROD – Sure enough, I checked my gauges and I’m a quart low on chocolate ice cream and about a pint low on black raspberry! My nut, whipped cream, and cherry gauges are down to a quarter each.

WEEKEND EVENTS:

FROM SARAH: LINDA CREED BREAST CANCER 5K
Hi Rod – can you please send an email blast out to let everyone know that pre-registration for the Linda Creed Breast Cancer 5K this Saturday in Pocono Pines is only open until tomorrow, Wednesday July 9th at 11:59am. Go to www.breastcancerrally.org to register. We will be accepting day-of registration with cash/check only. Thanks much.

07/13
FROM DARLEEN – BOILERMAKESHIFT
Hi Rod. Please remind folks that Sunday, July 13th is the Boilermakeshift from my house (202 Park Avenue, Stroudsburg) at 8:00 am. This is a friendly informal gathering where we will run either 3.1 or 9.3 (Runner’s choice) and socialize in my yard after. Everyone is welcome and Boilermaker Alumni and folks with the Boilermaker on their Bucket List are encouraged to train for next year’s event. I have always said every runner should do one Boilermaker because it is “only 9.3 miles but the crowd support is equivalent to major marathons”. I will not be able to provide crowd support this weekend along the course – but let’s have a good time in the finish area as we celebrate life and enjoy ourselves on Sunday morning. Hope to see you! Thanks! Darleen. (Guests can bring a dish/pitcher to share).

07/13 – BOILERMAKER – http://www.boilermaker.com/

07/13 – ALSO FROM MIKE
For those looking to ride Sunday I’m looking to do a Breakfast ride from the Park Service Visitors center (just past the guard shack) on 209 to Milford. I’m thinking a 7am ish start. If my memory serves me correct it is roughly a 42 mile ride round trip.

I think there may be a 6:30 ride also but I don’t have any details

MILLRATS – The mill rats will scramble as usual, 7:30 am. There may be groups or individuals following special training but I’m not aware of what they may be.

MAKE IT A FANTASTIC WEEKEND!

Officer Rubin Torres

FROM TONY

As most of you have heard by now that Officer Rubin Torres has been called to a better place. Please keep his family, friends and his fellow brothers and sisters ‎ in Law Enforcement in your thoughts and prayers. Officer Torres has patrolled the streets of our community for over 25 years and has touched many lives. Please come out on July 15th at Rudy’s Bar for the 5K run/walk. Registration starts at 5 pm and the race will start at 6:30 pm. You can also pick up registration forms at Ready Set Run and the Stroud Area Regional Police Department. Even if you don’t run/ walk there will be many prizes raffled off at Rudy’s after the run. They will also be grilling hot dogs and hamburgers. All proceeds from the run and raffle will benefit Officer Torres’s family. Rudy’s will also donate 30 percent of their sales that day to the Torres family. Hope to see. Everyone out there on July 15th.

Thank you

Tony Muscarello

Officer Rueben Torres Run/walk gathering

The news in the Pocono Record on Friday about Officer Torres health was not encouraging.

I like to ride my bike to the Stroudsburg Stadium the morning of the Run for the Red Cross Marathon so after I’m finished running I can ride back out the course and find the last runner and ride to the stadium with that person.

Several years ago as I did this I was joined by 2 motorcycle cops, one being Officer Torres. We had about 2 ½ miles to the stadium so the three of us followed the runner and chatted. At the point we reached the stadium and watched the runner enter Officer Torres asked me why I would go back out to be with the last runner, he asked wasn’t I tired. My response was the cycling was good therapy for my legs and seeing the last runner in my home town event had safely reached the stadium was therapy for my soul! He smiled a smile that told me he approved. His nod of approval made me feel good!

For years prior to that day and years since I enjoyed the comfort of seeing Officer Torres many times while I ran or cycled the streets and roads of our community. His smile exuded kindness, care, and concern for all of us he watched over!

Now I learn this man had an authority beyond what I granted him. This man and his wife are from a cut above what may be expressed as normal people! Six adopted children, five with downs syndrome, Officer Torres’ whole life has been that of a Heaven sent Shepard!

There are limits as to what we can do as human beings. One of the things we can do is to gather together Tuesday evening July 15th with hope in our hearts and payers and kind words on our tongues as we raise money for the Torres family! PLEASE come and bring EVERYONE you can as we gather to show the love, the care, and the respect we have for kind and gracious man and his family!

FROM LISA FLORY & THE SCOTT EWING TIMEING TEAM 07/15 – OFFICER RUBEN TORRES and his family on July 15th which is a Tuesday evening. The race will start and end from the Rudy’s Tavern/ Dansbury Park area. We will need some help for registration which starts at 5:00 and to time the race which starts at 6:30. Please let me know if you are available! – Lisa LFlory@ptd.net
