If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you – Fred DeVito

Some training runs should be just easy and for fun. Some training runs should be hard, they should hurt you! I believe both types can change you, for the good. The easy fun runs are for my mind. I use those runs to workout stress and solve problems. The hard runs are to test my resolve and my fitness.

Running is one of the most beneficial parts of my life. I hope and pray running and fitness is or will become a VERY beneficial part of your life also!

“There’s nothing impossible!” – Ivan Castro

NOTHING! Just believe in and give yourself a chance!

Here’s some news about some special friends who have run our Pocono Marathon several times. Lt Colonel Fred Dummar and Major Ivan Castro Special Forces Veterans just ran with the bulls in Pamplona. Ivan is completely blind, he lost his sight in battle in Iraq. His guide Fred Dummar, better known a “Doom” in the Ultra community leads Ivan in marathons and ultra-marathons. They have raced 100 mile events in this fashion as well as several Boston’s and many, many marathons.

Here’s some info about these special men: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/pushing-the-limits-ivan-castro-blind-army-vet-runs-with-the-bulls-pamplona/

The friendship Ivan and Fred share is a blessing I pray we all live to experience!

Make you’re a great week folks!

Running is a road to self-awareness and reliance-you can push yourself to extremes and learn the harsh reality of your physical and mental limitations or coast quietly down a solitary path watching the earth spin beneath your feet.
-Doris Brown Heritage

Oh boy! It’s gonna be HOT! The kind of heat that warms you right down to your bones! Please be careful! Carry water and take an extra common sense pill before heading out for your run, ride, whatever.
Here’s some hot weather running tips from the RRCA

https://www.rrca.org/education/hot-weather-running-tips

07/04 – I don’t know if the Freedom Fest race is on this year, it’s not on the Y’s calendar. This event would be happening if Scott Ewing were alive. This was one of his favorites. In his memory I will head down to Dansbury Park about 8 am and if the race is on I’ll run it. If not I will run the Levee Loop. Join me if you care to.

HAVE A HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!

Our best days lay ahead. Just keep moving forward! Train when and where you can, train as often as you can! Training and ice cream, there simply isn’t too much! Oh how I love training and ice cream! DON’T TELL DR. GOLDNER I SAID THIS!

A couple of items quickly

FROM ANGELA – Good morning everyone,
JOSH MILLER MEMORIAL 5K
Since online registration is closed, if you would like to pre-register for the Josh Miller Memorial 5K on Saturday, June 9th from 2PM until 4PM at Ready Set Run located at 431 Main Street, Stroudsburg, PA 18360.

If not, race day registration will be held beginning at 7AM on Sunday, June 10th on 800 block of Main Street.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 570 213 2882.

Have a great day,
Angela

The Levee Loop 4.5 mile race/walk:
It was excellent! Well managed run, good trail markings, cupcakes FANTASTIC! The improvements to the trial continue and it’s slowly becoming first class. If you haven’t been on it recently there is a combination of challenging single track and large section of gravel that could be ready for black top. The grass sections on the dykes are heaven sent for anyone looking for well-groomed soft terrain.
One comment I overheard was that “they” are trying to restore and re-invigorate this event and make it bigger and better.

This struck a chord for me as last week I was involved conversation about what some fear is a lack of local support for the races.

The old adage is never truer than with this concern. “Use it or lose it.” To grow and continue our events need community support. That you and me. We must support these events and let our friends know what we know or so they can help out also.

It’s hard to keep up with the local events without a club or central body of some sort keeping us informed and together. Each event is left to promote and inform the public individually. Let’s do our best to hold this community together and growing.

I hope many of y’all got to look this over. Just for fun:
PROPER T-SHIRT ETIQUETTE – http://www.psychowyco.com/id74.html
There are always a lot of opinions discussed on running forms about when and if you may wear your running event shirt. Rules rules rules! I’m a simple minded old man, I can’t deal with a lot of rules and the strife of being (politically) correct and corporate structures. Sooooo I made my own rule lots of years ago.

“If you give me a shirt I’m gonna wear any (heavenly) time, anywhere, I feel like it!”

Let’s run until we can’t run any more…

WHEN YOUR LEGS CAN’T RUN ANYMORE RUN WITH YOU HEART! – Author unknown

I am so PROUD of this running community! We have so many wonderful people dedicated to making the RUN FOR THE RED MARATHON happen. It would be easy for many to think and say how lucky we are to have our own home town marathon! But the truth is luck has little to do with this event happening. This event happens because we have some dedicated wonderful people with a vision and commitment to holding a first class event! The commitment goes far beyond just raising money, included is the pride in shared community service!
Training for a marathon is generally 16 to 18 weeks of hard work. Holding a marathon is a year round continuous effort. The Red Cross and race management meet and work all throughout the year. When we are finished running we get to go home and celebrate and lick our wounds. Race management stays and cleans up behind us and begins preparation for the next year.

Over the years I have run the full marathon course as a self-supported training run. Running it on race day with full support of race management sure is a heavenly experience compared to doing it alone! On race day we runners shine! We run our best and we are adored and thanked for our efforts. But I feel I MUST point out that without the efforts of race management and all the MARVELOUS VOLUNTEERS we wouldn’t get this opportunity! PLEASE THANK ALL VOLUNTEERS!

I’ll see y’all Sunday! Marathon, Half Marathon, or 5K, LET’S DO THIS!

TO THE STADIUM!

Good luck to those training and running elsewhere this weekend!

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray. – Rumi

I LOVE MARATHONS! But I’m not so good at being silent when I run! It’ been a while since I’ve finished a marathon. I will carry a light but I really hope I finish before sundown!

If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it, even if I may not have it at the beginning. ~Mahatma Gandhi – from Kevin Cook

Becoming a better/faster runner requires training HARD and SMART! You can be a better runner if it is REALLY important to you! Make your dream a reality!

The Krawitz Memorial was really cool!

Phil Svoboda came in from Spokane Washington to visit family and came over to run with us! Phil, like many of us, found inspiration and friendship with Ed!

This was my very first foot race 25 years ago! As I finished in WAY last place Sunday I was followed by two police cars. As we went down Dreher Ave a person across the street hollered JAIL BREAK??

Jim Thorpe half & 5k – I can’t find the results but I do know several local runners had excellent times there!

FROM BILL GAA – Knight’s Kris Kringle 5K on 12/08/18. Please send me the info again Bill.
