stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”

Its fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.
Bill Gates

Bill must enjoy training! Training is amongst many other things, the time to learn from our failures. To learn to recognize when our bodies and mind is coming to the edge and how to avoid going too far.

There are a number of Mill Rats who will be grieving due to the death of Attorney Dan Higgins. Please keep all in your kind thoughts and prayers!

PARC & our Fitness Community in action

FROM TONY MUSCARELLO:

I was very honored to present a check for $7100.00 on behalf of the Pocono Area Running Club. The Ruben Torres 5K was an enormous success and I could not done it without all the wonderful people who volunteered and donated.

I had the privilege to speak with Joann Torres yesterday and she wanted to thank our club and all that helped, donated and participated in the event. She asked me if we could make it an annual event. With out hesitation, I said yes. She said she liked the fact that our event got people out and socializing.

Although Joann is still having difficulties dealing with her loss she most certainly has some beautiful children that keep her extremely occupied. I also had the opportunity to spend some time with three of her very beautiful ‎children. Two of which with special needs. The two young children were such a joy. The hugs and fist pumps they kept giving me brought tears to my eyes. They were telling me how they couldn’t wait to go back to school and that they were going to ride the bus this year and so excited to do so. With all the problems we have in our own lives and the world around us, looking into these kids eyes and seeing the happiness and peacefulness made those problems disappear for a moment.

We as a club as a community as an individual truly made a world of a difference to a beautiful family and we should all be proud of that.

Thank you

THANK YOU TONY!
YOUR LEADERSHIP MADE THIS HAPPEN!!!!

Runner extraordinaire

Saturday morning as I cycled east over Veterans Memorial bridge I spotted Tom DeSchriver on the run coming off the Levee Loop onto the bridge. As I looked closer I could see he was on the phone but you certainly couldn’t have noticed it from his pace, he was movin’ !

Tom finds time for family, for running, for work, and to serve in our community. Perhaps not necessarily in that order (big smile here!) Throw in a little beer time and his day is FULL!

This morning you will find this fantastic news about this inspiring man and community leader in the Pocono Record! http://www.poconorecord.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20140820/NEWS/408200327/-1/NEWSLETTER100

I don’t wanna grow up, I never ever wanna grow up, but if I do I want to be a GOOD man like Tom DeSchriver.

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”

You are your greatest asset. Put your time, effort and money into training, grooming, and encouraging your greatest asset. – Tom Hopkins

During my years of running marathons I’ve come to the realization that the finest reward for running a marathon comes in the years, months and weeks of training preparation for marathon day. I LOVE to TRAIN! Training time is a gift, I can’t get my fill of training!

Marathon day is when the bright shining candle light on top of the cake is lite. The brilliance of that candle light is earned through the training and preparation for the event. The satisfaction of the event is earned through smart dedicated training. By slowly increasing the training intensity, slowly increasing you speed and distance, we build our bodies and confidence to realize our finest hopes and dreams.

Train hard! Train smart! Train and push yourself until you earn the satisfaction of your fondest hopes and dreams!

You truly are worth the effort!

August 30th – STROUDFEST SATURDAY – PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE MILL LOT.
Please honor the proprietors request for us to park elsewhere as beginning at 6 am many vendors will be setting up all over the mill lot. Stroudfest is growing and that is GREAT news for those our community who depend on shoppers patronizing local stores and stands!

WEEKEND RESULTS:
“The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.” ― Ronald Reagan

For me this quote speaks of our dear friend and community leader Jim Tust. Jim does and leads us in and helps us accomplish magnificent works!

I know I speak for all, may God continue bless you Jim! We love and appreciate you dearly!

THIS WEEKEND:
08/16 – THE SHAWNEE MOUNTAIN MUD RUN www.shawneemt.com
If you see hair floating in the puddle after the starters have passed thru, please pull it up, it may be a little person stuck in the mud bottom.

The ice tub atop the dirt mound at Shawnee is going to be SO refreshing.

Jim says he was assured most of the slithering thingies in the finish mud bath will be non-lethal, but he advises you say good bye to your loved one too be sure.

Life is SO GOOD when it’s shared with laughter and friends, covered in MUD, helping our girls with encouraging hands and hearts getting a healthful motivated start in life!

08/16 – FIRST ANNUAL RUNNING FOR TARA’S ANGELS 5K Lehigh Parkway www.tarasangels.org

Age Group National Triathlon Championship Report

RACE REPORT FROM JEFF SILVERNALE:
Milwaukee is an awesome city and an excellent venue for the Age Group National Triathlon Championship. As the brewery capital it was loaded with tons of them. Unfortunately, my race was on Sunday and we didn’t stick around to sample all that was available. Nor did we partake in what was an incredible State Fair with a trade-mark cream-puff that apparently exceeds a funnel cake in terms of a delectable delight – so I was told. And finally, kraut, brat and cheese are trademark Wisconsin and I failed to consume either since that isn’t quite the pre-race meal that would have propelled me to the podium (although in hind sight maybe I should have had at least one cheese-brat and one beer – you know for carb loading). The park system along Lake Michigan is simply wonderful with a mixture of everything including beach, grass, marina, art museum shaped like a sail boat, and much more. And Milwaukee embraced the event with fervor and even closed off an interstate bridge on which we rode. There were over 1700 competitors in the Sprint with even more in the Olympic. My wave was 2nd to last, which started 2hrs after the 1st wave. By the time I left T1, Jocelyn had completed her race and was cheering me on – thanks Jocelyn.

The swim in Lake Michigan was beautiful and had to be a wonderful view for spectators as they were able to stand on a walkway under which we swam. The water temp and clarity were wonderful. Often the swim pack thins out about a third to half way through a tri, however, the “pack” was thick all the way to the end. I didn’t draft as I like to do since I felt I was doing everything I could not to get swum over. Needless to say I survived and Lisa’s (Pizzuto) Master’s Program at ESU ensured I was in the top tier as opposed to bottom half.

The bike was on a closed course and was essentially flat, although we rode over a bridge and back. I’d say very nice and uneventful. Although I can climb a hill, my size befits a watts per kg output better spent on the flats and true to form that’s where I passed many of the “dolphins” in my class. Thanks to Dan Whitehead and Vertical Earth for keeping my ride in tip-top shape. And to the Thursday group riders for never relaxing (and for recovery drinks). Unfortunately, and probably due to many things such as lack of electrolytes and poor taper management, my quads locked up on the run and my gains were lost. I finished 6 places out of a guaranteed placement for the World competition next year. There is a roll-down that may allow me a shot, but I won’t find out for several days. I would love a shot at it since they’re held in Chicago next year, which I can make without too much financial pain. Keeping my fingers crossed and I won’t make that same mistake again (bonking on the run).

As one should now expect from USAT, the professional configuration and management of this event is top-notch. And so is the competition – holy crap there are a lot of fit and fast people in this event that we don’t often see at our “normal” events. The speed and grace of the “older” generation is incredibly inspiring. We saw several in their 80’s including one at 89. The only problem I had was that it was so large I had to be very careful to remember where my “spot” in transition was located. Fortunately I only ran past it by 10’ before recognizing it.

The event stays put for 2 years and then moves. This was the second year at Milwaukee and since it was in Vermont prior to that I’m guessing it’ll probably be out West next year. That might be a bit too far for a road trip, although my greatest supporters (Ingrid, Marleigh & Taryn) are hoping for a California city (and hoping maybe we could fly next time).

Only a few weeks to ramp up distance training for REV3 Pocono, which will have quite a few local participants. Good Luck.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful experience with us Jeff!

Whatever you ambition may be, running can be the vehicle to help you, in part, to accomplish your life’s dreams. There is a running event, a distance, to fit your desires.

A few weeks ago when Joetta Clark Digg’s was here I questioned her about her thoughts of doing a 5K. She looked at me in astonishment. Joetta ran in 4 Olympics at the 400 and 1500 meter distances. From the time the start gun went off Joetta was probably anaerobic for her entire race. Her entire race was one big emotional burst. The thought of racing 3.1 miles just didn’t appear to register well with her. Not that it should, she’s been at the pinnacle, and anything less can’t be appealing.

Up in Anchorage during the 24 hour, 48 hour 72 hour, and 6 day events competitors probably only reached an anaerobic state in the last few laps. The mindset is SO different! To accomplish what these runners do you must be very comfortable deep down inside yourself. In this type racing you can’t afford an emotional burst before the very last portion, emotion can burst you bubble if it comes too early in an event lasting days. I believe this is what happened to one competitor in the 6 day as was closing ranks on the leader and he quit with a day or so to go complaining the event was unfair. His emotions took control of his better judgment.

If you enjoy, have the need, to compete from seconds to days running has an event for you. With running you can increase your fitness, your health both mental and physical, and the quality of your life!

C’mon, whether you’ve been running for a life time, or your about to take that first step, make the attitude adjustment to build a new, healthy, and beautiful life!

WEEKEND RESULTS:

AMERICAN AND WORLD INDOOR RECORDS set at SIX DAYS IN THE DOME – http://sixdaysinthedome.com/
I’m not clear on the results, there is some confusion with the reporting coming from the timing team, but the following is pretty for sure.
TRACI FALBO broke the American and World Record 48 hour at Six Days in the Dome with a fat 249 miles.
JOE FEJES broke the American 6 day (144 hour) record with 580 miles. The previous record was held by the incredible American Stu Mittleman, at a fat 577 miles. Stu is the author of the book Slow Burn in which he offers his wealth of knowledge and experience and promotes the training philosophy of his coach Dr. Phil Maffetone. Stu Mittleman is a contemporary of Don Jewell.

My belief is the Ultra World has only just begun to see the magnificent results Joe Fejes will accomplish. He appears destined to re-write the multi day record books.

Fleetwood Trail in Brodheadsville

FROM JIM MANELO – Hello everyone – The Fleetwood trail in Brodheadsville is now open. It’s a 3.3 mile course of gravel, field, and woods trail that is maintained for runners and walkers. Mountain bikers can certainly ride it as well. The trail will be used for a race on September 21 but is available now for your running pleasure. Its maintained by Chestnuthill Township Park and Open Space commission and is situated on 244 acres of park property.
To inaugurate the trail, the park is inviting everyone to check it out on Wednesday, August 13, anytime after 6 pm. Runners can group or go out as they wish. We’ll have hot dogs and drinks for you. Its a great run for those who want to see what trail running is about, or to cross train, and its perfect timing if you want to warm up for the Shawnee run the following Saturday. Hope to see you there.

Directions: Rt 209 to 715 Brodheadsville. 715 north to the left hand fork that is Evergreen Hollow rd. Straight on Evergreen Hollow to the park on the left. (If you use a gps, enter 578 Evergreen Hollow Rd. Saylorsburg.)
Note: The park has a pavilion and tables, but no water or restrooms yet.

stuff ’round the mill

- stuff ’round the mill
“You have to wonder at times what you’re doing out there. Over the years, I’ve given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement.”
- Steve Prefontaine

AMERICAN AND WORLD INDOOR RECORD set at SIX DAYS IN THE DOME – http://sixdaysinthedome.com/
Traci Falbo’s record breaking 48 hour Finish at Six Days in the Dome. This video show Traci in her final strides to an incredible feat. She averaged of 5 miles per hour for 2 days. EVERY hour! According to what is reported she had approximately 1 hour sleep in 48 hours.

FROM BRIAN WINOT – I just found your blog and was surprised that my name was in it! I will send you info time to time about our little sub group of Tri Pocono, there are 7 or 8 of us all wearing the Northeast Site kits. Your blog is fantastic, keep up the great work.

Also, I speak daily with Rev3 and things are really heating up for the race on September 14! Community support is key to having this race survive! Get to Shawnee Inn and enjoy the festival! The course I designed will be FAST and should make for a great race!

Update on Rodrigo, as I’m sure you know he was injured in a bike accident on Old Mine Road on May 18. Mark Jefcoat, Rodrigo, Jocelyn and I are all coached by Adam Coffman, as such he tries to schedule any similar workouts we may share each week on the weekends so we may train together. Unfortunately that day Rodrigo had an 80 mile bike on his schedule (he was training for IMLP while Mark and I were only training for Raleigh 70.3). Mark had a mid-distance run and I had the Run for the Red Half with partner Tony Muscarello. Rod came and rode his bike next to me for a few minutes during the race, spoke with Tony and I at the finish line and headed out to get his 80 miles. Around 4:15 that afternoon his wife Gabby called, Rod was badly hurt in an accident and was being loaded onto a helicopter and transported to Morristown hospital. Rods head injury was very serious and caused him a week’s stay in the ICU before being transferred to Good Shepard Rehabilitation centers brain injury unit for another 10 days of extensive therapy. Happily Rod finally came home in mid-June, though still not able to work and lots of issue with short term memory. The road has been long but I am happy to report that not only did he return to work on a part time basis on Monday the 5th but he went out for a run on Tuesday!

Thank you,

SHAWNEE MUD RUN
Okay, Jim says he’s got plenty of volunteers and sends his thanks for y’alls overwhelming response!
PLUS – the Mud Run will again serve as a drop off/collection point for “SOLES FOR SOULS” – all old, muddy or even too stinky running shoes are welcome just tie laces and drop in collection boxes.

FROM ROD – I can’t wait to hear the first “newbie” cry out “who’s sadistic idea was it to put an ice bath up on top of the dirt mound!?” The silly rascal should has to stand in it until he turns into an ice cube his self!

So many wonderful things wrapped into one event. Charity, spirit filled competition, laughter, good fellowship, and an excellent feast! All brought to us by the warm and caring hearted folks at SHAWNEE MOUNTAIN!

FROM LISA FLORY – Hi Orange Team!

Next week (August 16th) is the Shawnee Mud Run! Definitely one of the fun ones that we time! Jim Tust has asked that we be there by 8:00 to set up the finish. If you want to help with set up let me know. The rest of the team can arrive at 9:00 and we will be all set for the 9:30 start.

Signup sheet shows Gina Fish, Dion Campbell, Mike Correll, Maureen Krinsky, Nancy Wilson, Sue Gehris, Katy Case, Lynn Byrne, Rhonda Nicholls, Gladys Spaulding, Don Jewell, and Alison Crescente. If you are not able to help or if you told me that you would help and I missed you please let me know.

There are still 2 entries left for the race donated by Jim Tust for orange team members or members of their family. If you would like one please let me know by Saturday so I can let Jim know. For those of you that have asked for one for your family member please email me their name, address, birthdate, and sex so I can get their info to Jim.

Stroudfest 5K is the next race on the team calendar and its on Saturday August 30th. Half the proceeds are going to the greyhounds in Scott’s memory and I hear there might be some greyhounds participating in the race too! Let me know if you plan on attending that day to help out.

Thanks again for all you do!! Scott would be proud of his team.
Lisa
