“stuff ‘round the mill”

My factory is closed this week; this is my vacation week for the year. I am working at home fixin’ stuff!

During my vacation weeks I love to hammer my training extra hard and this year I emphasizing building my core. The essence of my core work is drinking beer and eating ice cream! I have met this beautiful wisp of a young lady that assures me that Guinness Stout with several scoops of Dutch chocolate ice cream is the best ice cream float EVER! She’s not much of runner but I’ll report back to y’all soon as to the float!

Lynn and I are working on plans to cycle from the Ohio boarder to the NY State boarder on route 6 which is 403 miles. Plans are to do it sometime between mid October and early November. Not to worry, it is downhill with the wind at your back! (For several miles)

THIS WEEK & WEEKEND:
STROUDSBURG YMCA FREEDOM FESTIVAL 5K
The website says the results are there but I can’t get into them? – http://www.readysetrun.com/
It rained but spirits weren’t damped. Shirts pants shoes and socks sure were! I made the 5K miles 7.5 thru 10.6 of my normal 12 mile Sat morning run. The good news is that I moved me up in the overall standings from last year though, I was still last! The bad news is we had a poor turnout of local runners! Where was everyone!?!?

FROM WOODY: THANK YOU WOODY!!
YMCA of EASTON, PHILLIPSBURG & VICINITY – 17th Annual Family YMCA Firecracker 4-Miler Run/Walk – Fairview Park – http://www.greatervalleyymca.org/

FROM BILL GAA: THANK YOU BILL!!
The Mile has returned to Matamoras!!!!

Because of the nature of the event, there are no “official” records of the Matamoras Mile. On July second 22 people met at the large pavilion in Matamoras Airport Park to run an out and back course. There were runners, walkers, strollers and those wearing sandals participating. The first person to finish the mile was in 6:23 and the last person returned in around 22 minutes. All participants got a ribbon for their efforts.

The Matamoras Mile will be held the next three (3) Thursdays in July–9, 16 & 23. All runs will start at 6 pm & there is NO fee for participating.

For those of us who didn’t know the Rev 3 swim will be in the Delaware River this year! Is that cool or what!!

“stuff ‘round the mill”

Enjoy

Grammie and I had breakfast at the Landmark this morning and when the waitress set our food before us she charged us with “enjoy your breakfast!”

Our breakfast was very good, the waitresses at Landmark are the best, but Grammie and I were not in the mood to “enjoy.”

Enjoy is a charge we all us frequently. We say enjoy you run, bike ride, walk, swim. We say enjoy your weekend and many other things!

Grammie and I had just left the home of Edwin “Itze” and Bobbie Krawitz. We found them both in poor health, in hospital beds side by side in their living room.

Years ago the Krawitz living room was a shrine we runners gathered in to find out who won the coveted Krawitz Award! We came to enjoy running fellowship, Itze made his own special garlic spread, and we relished in the superb hospitality of the Krawitz Family. We enjoyed life while we embellished many a runners’ tale and openly shared dreams we held precious, almost sacred. The truth is Krawitz home is simply SPECIAL because of the people that live there!

A comparison may be to think of a time, a special place in your life that if you could you would go back there and stay there in that moment forever!

Itze and Bobbie are in good care, I’m told their health is improving. I’m so glad to be their friends! They are truly a blessing to my/our lives! I don’t know the words to express my feeling for them. Words are so empty when compared to a hug or a kiss.

As we prepared to leave I wanted to charge them with a heartfelt “ENJOY YOUR LIFE!” But the words wouldn’t come out; they felt so empty in my mind, in my heart! There isn’t much enjoyment for these special people at the moment. Thank God for the dedication of their care takers!

Please keep Itze and Bobbie in your prayers, in your heart and mind, they are GOOD people!

I let the secret about the Happy Bday run and sing out to their care taker who is offering to turn it into a Bday party with a cookout! Please let me know what y’all feel about the cookout idea!

Thanks to Don Jewell I’m preparing my application for yet another running club. http://www.ne65plus.org/

“stuff ‘round the mill”
Friendship consists in forgetting what one gives and remembering what one receives. – Alexander Dumas

I’ve been thinking about the good friends I’ve been blessed to have through running. Edmundo Bermudez is a friend from whom I have received so many blessings!

Ed is native born Nicaraguan. As a young man he was involved in the conflict in Nicaragua during the Carter administration and there came a point when Ed had to leave family and home behind. After a brief period to finish his education in Spain Ed came to the USA.

Today Ed is a self made successful businessman, and I am proud to call him friend!

I spent a lot of time training with Ed though the mid to late 90′s, though not much during the past 12 to 15 years. Ed is a superb runner!

While waiting for the start of the Josh Miller event a few weeks ago we found ourselves in discussion and agreement about one thing in particular that I found surprising. The fact is we both cherish training far more than events. I always believed Ed thrived more on the competition! We suddenly were laughing at this single idea we both totally agree upon; events DO get in the way of our training! Training is what we live for! Events, tapering, and recovering is wasted time that should be used for training!

During my early years of running I had come to accept the fact that I was slow and I’d never qualify for Boston. Most of the mill rats agreed! They were happy for me to be ay at the back of the pack with Itze who was rapidly slowing and unable to stay with the main group.

It was a magnificent day, the day I met and began training with Ed Bermudez. Somehow somewhere while running with Ed I became aware that there was the possibility that regardless of my lack of natural talent and abilities, if were determined enough, and worked hard enough, I too could qualify for and run Boston! I may not know the how or where but I do know why. Ed has to be the person that the “just do it” slogan was modeled after. If you wanted to know how to run faster Ed would tell you just run faster. JUST DO IT! For Ed it is that simple, just do it, whatever it is you want to accomplish. To run faster or to run father just means working harder!

I don’t know about today but back then Ed’s base training meant a 5am run and a 4pm run weekdays, 5 miles each. At 7pm he would spin cycle indoors or sometimes add another 5 mile run. Saturdays could be easy days of 4 to 10 miles and Sundays could be up to 30 or more. Some Sundays Ed would run from his home in Cherry Valley to the Mill, over the dirt mound, and then run 15 to 20 miles with me and then run back to his home again. In order to stay with me he did a LOT of paper clipping. My training pace was 7:30′s to 8′s while his was 5:30′s to 6:30′s. Yes, a 15 mile run with me meant he was probably running 20, we didn’t have Garmin’s then, we just ran and talked and laughed and ran some more! There’s never a dull moment when you run with Ed, his stories and his enthusiasm pump you up!

I’ve written here before about Ed’s first marathon, the Marine Corp, where he led the first mile in a blazing 4:10! He never mentions what his time was for the second mile, or the 26th mile for that matter. I’ve always assumed that first mile was a magnificent feat, and just perhaps one hell of a lesson!

Ed has been running more of our local events this past year and is my sincere hope he continues to do so. Life is much better when Ed Bermudez is around. Running is a bit more joy filled when Ed is in the field!

I love ya Ed, stay with us PLEASE!

“stuff ‘round the mill”
The littlest feet make the biggest footprints in our hearts. (unknown)

I got to hold my great granddaughter Juliana last night for the first time! Her little feet, they are SO perfect! Really REALLY big smile on my face! The renewal, the hope, and dreams a person can feel looking down on the face of a baby, it’s just amazing! There is nothing more wonderful than looking into the searching eyes of a baby!

I’ve been wondering if someday I may get to run a 4 generation marathon for a few years. Juliana is a month old and I’m about to turn 70 with a 90 year old knee so this may present a bit of a challenge! Challenges are simply the seeds from which the finest of life’s rewards grow!

Lisa had told me to enjoy the 3 generation RFR this year; it was going to be her last. Jake has told me he is taking a break away from marathons so one may think this 4 generation thingy is questionable! Ho ho ho! No worries, I will punish them until they can’t wait to run another marathon just to shut me up!

Besides, Juliana isn’t ready to begin marathon training for a few weeks.

Keeping our streets roads and trails tidy should be our number one and two jobs! Not everyone agrees….

“stuff ‘round the mill”

I found myself in a conversation recently about awards and the importance of respectful presentation of awards. The person I was speaking with made the point that the award presenter should take the time to give each recipient a moment of recognition as well as the award. Pretty cool huh!? We do sometimes rush through our award ceremonies at our events! I’m not sure why but I do know I am ALWAYS in a hurry! It is like I’m not sure where I’m going but I know I must get going, I gotta get outa here. ??? The time spent giving or receiving an award seems like lost time to me.

This also caused to give consideration about respectful acceptance of an award.

Now this may seem odd but I have NEVER EVER receive an award I felt worthy of! Throughout my years of running I have quickly given away any awards presented to me. With the exception of a few that Grammie sees as special and latched onto and keeps safely put away, all my awards are in the hands or trash baskets of others.

Most awards presented are about beating someone else, finishing first, second or third. Beating someone is never why I’m in an event! I’m in an event to achieve the best results out of my mind and body I possibly can today! On the right day in a competitive mood I may push myself to the brink to finish ahead of another runner, but it’s NEVER about beating that runner, it’s always about pushing me to a higher standard.

It’s kind of like the marvelous folks that just did the 200+ mile bike ride I refer to as “just for giggles”. They rode for pride! For fun! They rode for a sense of accomplishment! Their award, the warm friendship and the camaraderie they will cherish each moment as they recall their ordeal together throughout all the days of their lives! You can’t buy those feelings; you can’t take them from someone! You only can earn ‘em on the roads and trails in shared dreams, time, and effort! You guys are an inspiration, you are awesome! I can’t tell y’all how much I love and admire each one of you!

From early on my most precious rewards came while I was running. I won’t say I hate the end of an event/run but I don’t like it. I never want my run to end, no matter how tired I am and like everyone I really do get beat down tired sometimes! But in my life “the run” never ends, there is only a brief rest period before resuming the run once again. When the day comes that I view a run as being my final one, I will know my life is reaching its end. For everyone there comes a final day, a final run, it is life’s cycle.

I have run alongside, behind, and in front of some of the finest people the Lord has ever put on the face of this earth! Many of them I don’t have a name for, I didn’t get it or forgot it. But I do see their faces! And I really do feel their spirits in joyous union with mine. The pain and the strain are all part of the gain we share in our effort to move forward during the run; in and during that run are some of the best periods of our lives.

This has been my gift; it really has been free! The memories, the friendships, the faces of loving caring people! This is my reward for putting in the countless hours and endless effort while running.

Running can bring a richer level of enjoyment to your life, it has to mine! I invite you to come share it with me. Let’s start or continue our journey together, today!

WEEKEND

Sat & Sun – Full Mill schedule! Running, walking, cycling, talking, and coffee! Not necessarily in that order!
Sun – 7am brick workout from the Mill – 5K run – 15 mile ride – 5K run, or adjust distances to suit your desires.

“stuff ‘round the mill”

Here is a brief account of a “just for giggles” bike ride from High Point NJ to Cape May some of the sane members of our community did this past weekend! ALL you guys are awesome! Congratulations on an exceptional feat!

FROM RHONDA:
Rod,
What an experience! I couldn’t wrap my head around biking over 200 miles in a 24 hr time period but we did it and did it well! Charlie, Lynn and I had the best sag team. Lynn’s 2 sons, Michael and Tommy were top notch and stayed behind us the entire trip. They both got us whatever we needed and always with a smile. We started the ride at midnight with rain and no visible moon. Thanks to Charlie and his fantastic directions we had no difficulties finding our way. The sun came out and the ride ended in Cape May at the lighthouse at 4:46 pm. A very welcome sight! None of us got a flat tire. An amazing feat since on most training rides I got a flat. The trip was well orchestrated and has provided many wonderful memories with friendship bonding.
Rhonda
PS We did not see Linda and Frank until the next day since we were able to stay ahead of them and they got in late on Saturday night.

FROM LINDA:
The Longest Day Bike Ride- TLD

On Saturday, June 13th, Lynn, Rhonda, Charlie, Frank & myself set out on a 208 bike ride from Port Jervis, NY to the Cape May Lighthouse. Lynn, Rhonda & Charlie rode as a team with Lynn’s sons driving their support vehicle. Frank & I joined my brother’s team supported by my father. Lynn’s team started out a midnight. We started at 5:30am. Our first rest stop was around the 50 mile mark. Still riding in overcast and most of our hills behind us we felt great. At that point Lynn’s team was approx. 50 miles ahead of us. By the mid afternoon it was pretty darn hot. Lynn said at one point her bike computer read 104 degrees. We rode south through the cranberry bogs and into the Pinelands. My team was averaging 17mph. My brother promised we would stay around 16mph so I was pleasantly surprised at the pace although I was the slowest rider on the team. Thankfully my brother and Frank provided a nice draft for me to rest. And my father was behind me the whole time. Lynn’s team finished around 5pm. I had visions of them jumping in the pool at the hotel and was so jealous!! It was hot!! We made our last rest stop around 7:15pm around mile 177, we were all feeling pretty good considering. Only 31 miles to go..at least that was what I thought. Unfortunately due to a few wrong turns we were off by a few miles. We started out together from the rest stop but soon our group began to separate. I was struggling to keep the 20+mph pace at this point. Frank & I rode together the remainder of the ride with my dad behind us thankfully. With 15 miles to go I got a flat. My brother can change a flat in like 2 minutes. Me not so much. 20 minutes later with Frank and my Dad’s help we were on our way. It’s now getting dark. My brother and the rest of the team are 7 miles ahead of us. They waited and we attempted to ride to the lighthouse together but I couldn’t keep up. These guys were crazy! Impressive & crazy! Its pitch dark by now so we naturally slowed down to avoid potholes or being hit. With my dad still behind us lighting the way we could finally see the lighthouse. My brother came back to ride in with us. My mom was waiting with her camera. I think we finished around 9:40pm. 211 miles! Riding time 12 hours, 32 minutes. Total time approx 16 hours. It was a great ride! We are already talking about next year (Lynn!). I was thrilled to be able to finish with my brother & Dad. This was his 15th time riding TLD. Of course during the ride Frank & I were saying why would anyone want to do this 15 times!! Much like marathoners…he’s hooked & a little crazy!

The attached picture includes both teams. One guy is missing from my brother’s team. He went home from the lighthouse. The rest of us spent the night in Wildwood Crest.

“stuff ‘round the mill”

WEEKEND RESULTS:

The Wyckoff 2.4 mile swim – Indian Trail Club – 830 Franklin Lake Road – Franklin Lakes, NJ US 07417
RACE REPORT FROM DEBBIE LENNOX: (Debbie was #2 overall and #1 woman!)

It was a great race. I had no idea I finished as well as I did until the results were posted. As I was rounding the first buoy on the first lap, I could see a lead pack of swimmers about 50-100 yards ahead of me, but I couldn’t tell how many there were. I picked off a few of them over the next 3/4 of a mile (one of them right before the timing chute on the first lap). As I was starting the 2nd lap, I only saw 2 swimmers, a guy about 100 yards ahead of me and the woman I had just passed. I figured the lead pack was waaaaaay ahead of us. Little did I know, they weren’t a pack anymore and I had overtaken all but one of them. The woman was putting on pressure and I could see her about every 10th breath. When I got to the 4th of 7 buoys, she seemed to be getting closer, so I had to turn it up a notch. I didn’t see her again, but I knew she was there. When I rounded the last buoy, I knew I was going to have to give it my all for the last 200-300 yards because she was a fighter and I had no idea where she was. Turns out, she was 19 seconds behind me. :) It was a fun race today.
LAP THE LAKE 2.4 MILE SWIM – http://www.compuscore.com/cs2015/june/laplk24m.htm

I’m hoping to get some details of “The midnight ride of Lynn, Rhonda, and Charlie” as well as Linda and her brothers group to share with y’all.

JOSH MILLER MEMORIAL 5K – RESULTS ATTACHED

The Josh Miller Memorial Event has evolved into the number ONE event amongst some extremely important 5K’s we are privileged to have locally. I don’t know if credit for that goes solely to Angela Tullo or a group of folks, but I do know Angela has done an outstanding job bringing this together. Our running/fitness community is being used well to recognize the memory of fallen police officers and significant citizens!

My suspicion is that the decision to make a career in the field of “protect and serve” has never been more difficult for many. There is an attitude founded in ignorance and fueled by evil around our country trying to build walls between common good people our police forces. I pray that wall never finds its way into our community!

The formation/cadence group was spectacular! Many of that group came back out on course after finishing the run, it appeared they hadn’t had enough of the running or perhaps it was the “feeling” of the event!

“stuff ‘round the mill”

FROM DADDY D: (Forgive me Des!) some editing!

Amy and I placed FIRST overall in the team relay, Amy did the running and I rode the mountain bike. Race was good and consisted of a 3 mile cross country run followed by 10 mile Mountain bike followed by a tough 3 mile run with climbs so tough they had ropes tied to trees so runners could pull themselves up.

RUSTIC RAGE OFF ROAD DUATHLON – Finishing is up to you!

“stuff ‘round the mill”

“Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there’s a tomorrow. Maybe for you there’s one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through your fingers. So much time you can waste it.
But for some of us there’s only today. And the truth is, you never really know.”
― Lauren Oliver
