stuff ‘round the mill
“Make each day your masterpiece.” ~John Wooden

Two of our premiere charity 5K’s happen the same day, Saturday. I’m headed to Wineglass so I will miss both.

Families First has a small community, but we are all family, atmosphere about it. It’s run on a very fair course offering potential for personal best times! If you’re not running for a fast time you will still have a good time regardless!

Run 4 Kelly is run on one of meanest 5 k courses a person could design! A runner is either running downhill or running uphill, that’s the 2 choices you have. There isn’t any flat. Nothing about this course is easy! BUT…when you are finished you will be treated great food and an experience in the Faith you won’t soon forget!

Two wonderful marathon experiences within 200 miles happen Sunday.

Here’s marathon news I hate to receive:

2016 Marathon & more announcement:

Thank you to all our runners, sponsors, volunteers, & supporters over the last 40 years for your engagement with the Greater Johnstown Community YMCA Marathon, Half-Marathon, 10K, & 5K.

Girl’s on the Run

Good morning Rod!

stuff ‘round the mill
The number of race events established for charities is ever growing. If there is a need there is a 5K to raise funds for it. While the addition of a charitable cause adds considerably to our events, there are many events where it’s only about the money, the running part is lost! More and more events are going to 10 year age groups to save a couple of dollars and some work. Others don’t bother to publish results; it’s just too much work. A guy can’t help but get the feeling, “well they got my money, that’s all they cared about! There was no concern about running or fitness, it’s all about the money!”

Many very large events, like the Boston Marathon, will allow you runners to bypass their qualifying standards if the runner will guarantee to raise a specific amount of money for the charity.

Some feel this cheapens the integrity of the event. I remember when Marty Alfano was offered a Boston entry complimentary of his Insurance Company. Marty has wanted to run Boston all of his running life! But Marty wants to earn his Boson entry the “right” way, through the qualifying standard set for his age group. To accept an entry or to buy an entry isn’t acceptable to many with the kind of principals that may be considered old fashioned today! For many if you haven’t earned that entry on the run, on the clock during competition, you don’t deserve it.

The first time I qualified for Boston was one of the greatest running moments in my life. Perhaps qualifying was equal to if not as gratifying as my first running of Boston. As I proceeded to the start line at my fist run in Boston I couldn’t help but look around and think “I made it!” Here I am amongst the runners who QUALIFIED to run and be a part of the history of the Boston Marathon. At that time I wasn’t aware some runners had bought their way in by pledging to a charity of Boston’s choosing, or were running with a number they may have bought from another runner. I remember an empty feeling from learning there were runners in Boston that hadn’t qualified by running their way in! But then again I often must remind myself, IT IS ONLY RUNNING! Perhaps, sometimes, I put running on too high of a pedestal!

This weekend the VIA Marathon will be one of the last opportunities to set a qualifying mark that for the 2017 Boston Marathon. I suspect there will be many area runners putting forth their very best effort to meet the Boston qualifying time for their age group! While I can’t run I can be at the finish line cheering for those who can. They can use and do appreciate our support! Be there if you care to, the finish line area is a motivating and exciting place to be!

ADDITIONAL EVENTS:
FROM ART – do you have the Women’s Resources 5k on your race calendar? Lauren Peterson from Women’s Resources approached me at the Stroudfest 5k and asked me to get their word out to local runners. Their event is on Sunday October 23 out at Pleasant Valley. I told her about your newsletter and said I would ask you to include them.

stuff ‘round the mill
Life is full of surprises and serendipity. Being open to unexpected turns in the road is an important part of success. If you try to plan every step, you may miss those wonderful twists and turns. Just find your next adventure-do it well, enjoy it-and then, not now, think about what comes next.
Condoleezza Rice

WHAT A MORNING!!

There are a number of LOCAL runners that REALLY inspire me! The times I get to see one of them running is a really neat treat! Well this morning I got to see three of them during one run/walk!!!

First was Drew Davis on Crystal Street. Drew’s running form is machine like, his stride is measured and precise! He is amazing!

Next, Tom DeSchriver passes me on the Veterans Memorial Bridge, okay, the interboro bridge for you old folks. Tom doesn’t have that measured mechanical stride. Tom just glides along looking almost effort free! It’s not fair, his gift is SO heavenly natural!

I’m inside my last mile when the epitome of running class and of our community floats gracefully over the sidewalk across the street from me! It is Laura Mason Caiazzo whose feet look to barely touch the ground. I don’t believe there is a more beautiful, kind, or caring person I’ve ever met! When in her presence please just don’t utter the words, I challenge you to… She will put a hurt on you!
Laura is recovering from a second bout with cancer. I had a chance to speak with her and Ralph last weekend about that struggle. I said something I’ve been holding silently in my heart for close to 30 years. I’ve never forgiven my mother for not trying, not fighting cancer, the second time it struck her! I loved her dearly EVERY DAY OF HER LIFE! But she refused everything but pain killers and she died way way way before her time! Laura spoke a few words I chose not to hear; but in Laura’s eyes I could see and hear the message of how wrong I was!

So Laura has helped me tremendously as a runner, and as a son! That’s gift, a blessing you just can’t buy!

Somewhere here in my computer is a note from Art with a news release to remind y’all about STROUDFEST! I just don’t know where?? Now a few have emailed me asking if there is to be a STROUDFEST 5K this year. There is not, as listed below there is to be a “pocono area running club/ kiwanis – daybreak STROUDFEST 5K” I suspect many quit reading at Pocono Area Running Club. Some quit at Kiwanis Daybreak. See, you have to read ALL the way through!! Stroudfest has been moved to third billing! Aaaaannnnnd it is going to the dogs (Greyhound Rescue!) So here is a chance to support one of your local running clubs, Pocono Area Running Club, Kiwanis Daybreak, The vendors and businesses on site and your community at large! Here’s a chance to get your stink on and share it with the entire community!

For what it’s worth – this week I had x-rays and mri’s on my knees. I have bursitis, osteoarthritis, and torn meniscus in both knees. There will be no operations, I am sporting a much more serious brace on my left leg. I need another eleven marathons to reach my goal of 100. If any of y’all come across any 2 day events PLEASE let me know!

“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”
― C. JoyBell C.

In his book The Art of Learning Josh Waitzkin writes of the necessity to take chance, to reach beyond the security and normal physical and learning patterns. He writes of testing limits and pushing through the fear of failure. Josh is a world renowned Chess and Tai Chi master. His book is inspirational; it has been a blessing to read. He delves deeply into the mental and physical aspects of learning to reach our goals in life. He gives deep insight into the build up to intense competition followed by the need to retreat, relax, and heal both the mind and body from competition. The Art of Learning, it is a worthwhile read!

FROM DARLEEN – Good Morning Rod:
At 9:30 am from Sorrenti Winery, runners, walkers and the community are invited to park at Sorrenti’s and run the 3.1 miles to the Wildlife Preservatory . At 10:00 – 10:15 am – a check will be presented from Pocono Area Running Club to Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation Center and tours will be offered around the Wildlife Association. After the presentation of the check enthusiasts can run or walk back to the Winery or the Wildlife Preservatory graciously agreed to transport folks back to the Winery in their van. Back at Sorrenti’s they opening early for us this Sunday and preparing wine tasting and pizza.. At Sorrenti’s Wine testing is available for $4.00 and includes a souvenir glass. Oven brick pizza can be purchased from $13.00 to $17.00 for a 12″ pie that can feed two people. (My opinion is this is very good pizza)! There is no fee to run or walk in this event and glorious community moment. I do however need a head count for parking issues and Sorrenti’s needs to know how many people will be having pizza so they can start making them. Please rsvp to leen78@verizon.net or call 570-460-9160 to let me know if you are attending part or all of this great community event. Darleen”
Attached is a flyer for the run on August 21st. If you can attach it to an upcoming email and remind folks it is fast approaching that would be great. Thanks! Darleen

‘If you can’t run with the big dogs, you’d better stay on the porch’

BAH-LONEY!

There is NEVER a time to not TRY to run! Some injuries may mean you probably should not try to run! Like if there’s bone sticking out and you’ve lost a pint or two of blood you may want to consider skipping your next workout maybe two! Other than those circumstances, give running a good try! We must try and try and try again! DON’T GIVE UP! If you wind up walking home, hold your head up high! Walk home with dignity! Do NOT accept a ride!

You can do it! You can improve your fitness and you overall health! I believe in YOU!

Now the BIG DOGS that will be competing at the REV3 this weekend, we may not be able to run with them! But we can cheer for them! We CAN encourage them! We can share in their moments of agony and glory along the race course! We can share the glory of life and the joy of the day’s accomplishments with them! C’mon, let’s get out there along the course and do it!

I went out to try to run last night. My knees have been hurting a lot and I am REALLY slow, sometimes it knocks me down, it turned out I could only walk. But all the while I couldn’t help but think to myself, if ugly people can have sex, slow people can run/walk! It makes me feel better. More about that later…

stuff ‘round the mill
Racing, competing, it’s in my blood.
It’s part of me, its part of my life;
I have been doing it all my life and it stands out above everything else.
- Ayrton Senna

The Rev3 Half and Olympic Triathlon

OMG is this going to be spectacular! YES…I MEAN SPECTACULAR! I’m quivering from excitement as I sit and type this! I wish so much that my body was up to training for and competing in this event, but it just isn’t this year!

I am, and hope y’all are, thankful for Revolution3 Triathlon (REV3) Race Series folks and the wonderful folks working and volunteering to make this the best event they possibly can make it be; y’all are a BLESSING to our community and our fine athletes! I can feel the enthusiasm of those who have trained and WILL compete! One of the great rewards of fitness and competition is the feeling of knowing you’re ready and bursting at the seams for the event, the COMPETITION to begin!

For the rest of us, let’s get out and yell and cheer and show everyone how much we appreciate their efforts! There’s an almost limitless number of places to watch and cheer from along the course!

DON’T FORGET TONIGHT – The PBC Tuesday night ride! Leaves from the Stroudsburg High School at precisely 6:05. We have been recently getting a variety of riders (from beginners to fast) so there should be someone to ride with. You’ll regret it if you don’t at least give this ride a chance. Message me if you have any questions.

Oh… And bring a friend (and your helmet)

Last week I had the opportunity to visit with Nikki before she left for Lake Placid. I told her I couldn’t wait to see her beautiful smile after she finishes! Here it is: (I hope!)
