stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” – Lauren DeStefano, Wither

That’s the Steamtown Marathon, the last burst of our glorious summer training and racing here in northeast PA! Three weeks are left until the Steamtown! I’ve always thought of Steamtown as a mini New York Marathon. Steamtown has a special fan base and the fans are spread from start to finish. Something occurs on Steamtown Sunday which exemplifies the beauty and wonderful people throughout Northeast Pennsylvania. From the very first Steamtown Marathon I was hooked on the event and the people that make and surround the event! I have some VERY SPECIAL memories that were made at Steamtown! One was in 2002 when I ran the event in honor of a dear friend’s mom and dad, Madalene and Walter Schautz, who were note worthy philanthropists in Scranton and the surrounding area. I struggled throughout the race but pulled it together a bit better at the finish.

Annnnd the 10th annual Pocono RFR Marathon will be on the 20th Sunday in the year 2015! YAY! It sort of marks the end of winter and spring training and racing leading us into the warmth of summer! There are 15 Sundays left in 2014, thirty five Sundays total! Long time huh? Not really, our training days will be exhausted and the RFR will be here before you know it!

REV3 – From Rhonda (why I saw her but didn’t find her in the results)
Rod, I was part of a relay team which consisted of my niece, Caitlin, my sister in law, Holly and myself. Our overall time was 5:10:26.

10/04 – Aardvark turns 30!
I STILL have VERY warm fuzzy feelings for Bruce & Dick Haines. I was a customer of theirs long before they opened a store here in Stroudsburg. I feel we owe them a debt of gratitude for all their kindness, leadership, and help along the route to becoming the running/fitness community we are developing into.

Pocono Triathlon Race Report – 2014

FROM JEFF SILVERNALE – Pocono Triathlon Race Report – 2014
Call it a Half IM, call it a 70.3 or call it a freakin’ nightmare, it’s all the same. Third time’s a charm for the local Pocono Triathlon. This time it was taken over and managed by REV3, who operates in locales that are family friendly and they couldn’t have found a better host and finish/expo area than they found with Shawnee Inn & Resort. As some know, the traffic snarls through Stroudsburg in previous years were nearly unforgivable if you had no love in your heart for triathletes. And the timing of the high school renovations put a snag in the logistics, but this time, it was a well-oiled machine (at least it was when they dedicated some time to it, which was about 5 days before the event). There wasn’t a lot of hype and holla before this event as I had been expecting, but REV3 was busy on a few other things including negotiating a merge with Challenge Family for 2015 and beyond so there is likely yet another name change (and a return of the Pro’s who were missing this year), but it sounds like it will be an improvement from an already accomplished brand. One new development was allowing spectators at T1. I have mixed feelings on this since having fans at T1 is awesome, even if they’re not my fans, however, they have to drive the course to get to T2 so it can lead to congestion. It wasn’t a problem for me so maybe it’s a good thing, although I think others may disagree.

The organization of this one was both stellar and abominable. Just a few days before the event there was confusion as to the actual course, schedule or spectator status with virtually no information or what they were thinking. To their credit they didn’t send out false rumors and simply kept at it till it was confirmed. Unfortunately route 209 was open to traffic, but thankfully River Road was closed, which facilitated moving the run off Hollow Road (thank God) and onto River Road with a spur onto McDade at Smithfield Beach (for the Half). I was expecting so much more from REV3 and it wasn’t till the expo that they finally gave me the warm fuzzies that this was an important event for them with the size of the expo, the jumbo-tron, the professional finish line and awards stage, etc. Once set up, the event was awesome and I must say I drank the cool-aide and can’t wait till next year when they’ll be better prepared. Shawnee Inn & Resort, as most locals probably know, is an awesome host. Their infrastructure with the beautiful resort, huge lawn and substantial pavilion with the gorgeous Delaware River for a backdrop is unsurpassed as is their professional catering. And somehow REV3 managed to get a tremendous number of enthusiastic volunteers that really benefitted the competitors.

The swim remained in the same location (Second Pond at old Tamiment Resort), and the water temp was perfect at just above 70F. The air temp was a bit colder and felt like 50F, but what a huge difference from a couple years ago when the water was freezing and so was the air. Some complained the swim was long, but I didn’t get feedback from anybody wearing a GPS and I was concentrating on following some guy’s feet so I was totally pre-occupied. Therefore, I’m thinking it was about right. Plus, it doesn’t much matter since we’re all in the same “boat” so to speak. Water was pretty clear – not pristine since some parts are so shallow that the group in front of me dredged up some whoknowswhat in their wake. It was so shallow in parts that some took to walking around the first buoy. I’m not the best swimmer, but I find it easier to keep my elbows up and swim rather than walk through water. When the day comes that I can walk “ON” water, I won’t be worrying about triathlons anymore.

They have one minor tweak in T1 (and again at T2) and that is to enter and exit at opposite corners. In this case the entrance/exit was located at opposite ends of a long isle with many short rows containing bikes. The time to run to the end of the row (if one’s bike was there), was not significant, but enough to provide an unfair advantage of a few seconds, especially when the “fix” was very easy. I’m sure they’ll improve this next year when the pros arrive.

The bike course was stellar. Who can complain about a few potholes and hills on Community & River Road when over 40 miles was on flat/rolling 209 and the first 4 miles people were hitting speeds of 55 mph. OK, by stellar I mean to say the open course didn’t bother me, but some competitors still had cars honking and yelling at them, and not in a good way. Next year I envision 209 will be closed. I must give kudos to officials manning the intersections and props to volunteers handing out water/Gatorade. One of my water bottles fell out so they saved my life. As a matter of fact I was able to top off my fuselage with even more water that I failed to do 2 years ago and which did me in. I heard some competitors were wearing camelbacks and I’m thinking for as much fuel/hydration one needs it’s not a bad idea. This year I was much better prepared and forced down fuel with carbs, protein and more salt than the Dead Sea to stave off cramps that I’m prone to have – must have worked, I think I posted the best bike split. Of course one always pays for things in life and I paid dearly for that bike split by placing my quads on the alter and setting them ablaze, which I realized too late that quads would have been helpful to have during the run. The last 3 miles of the bike were alongside the Olympic runners (that sounds funny since they weren’t actually in THE Olympics) and that was great motivation as well as a nice distraction since I saw many of my compatriots.

Both T1 and T2 used wheel wells rather than bars and I liked them far better. This configuration resulted in little boxes between competitors where one could store their gear. Both in and out were well-marked. And REV3 did a nice thing by placing your gear bags (required when there are two transitions) next to your bike after the race. Running out I saw my greatest inspiration, my wife Ingrid, and I was determined to clear my head of the typical thoughts that plague each of my races – which is to fake an injury pull up. Oh how I wanted to – nothing like a broken leg, but maybe something simple like a sprained ankle.

The run was great – actually the course was great, the run was grueling. All the locals know the only flat spot in the Pocono’s consist of a track surrounding a football field so rolling hills are on par with our training runs. That doesn’t mean the bumps weren’t difficult – hell, the curb was difficult enough for me at that point. And the move onto McDade trail was a true blessing. OK so they did find some flat spots – another life saver. Other than the parking lot at Smithfield Beach, the course was entirely shaded, which turns out to have been a good thing since it was heating up at that point and I would have dehydrated for sure. As it was I was stopping at nearly every aid station for Gatorade. Those volunteers were all fantastic. That was my first run on McDade trail and I’m now a bit miffed about that little running statistic of mine. That course is beautiful with a capital A – for awesome. I’m wondering now why we didn’t turn onto the trailhead at Hialeah. I’ll have to go back and find out. The talent of the competitors slipping past me is incredible as they disappeared into the mist (for those who don’t read much, that’s literary-speak as to the reason I couldn’t see them very long, although it was clear as a bell and the real, sad reason was they quickly ran way far ahead of me). I was doing my best to keep them at bay, surging when I felt good or down a hill and nearly walking at times up the hills and all the while adding up the money I was losing as each 40+ passed me. You see the top 5 masters are awarded cash prizes and I WAS sitting pretty in T2 to the tune of $500, but alas that was slowly sliding from my hands – like a thing I was trying to hold yet which was a very slippery and squirmy thing – more literary-speak. I was overwhelmed to finally see mile 12 and nobody behind me. Although I knew they were there and I knew they were closing in. But I was determined to make them work for it and Rod Hasker was just the guy I wanted to see on the side of the road cheering me on – Thanks Rod. Knowing he cheers everybody on I was counting the seconds between his “go get ‘em” directed at me and again for when it was directed at the next competitor. Thankfully I didn’t hear another one and was hoping it wasn’t due to wearing ear plugs from the swim. Soldier on I did and the turn off River Road saw me ramp it up and that was enough to quell any more usurpers as I trudged through the finish line. By the way, that is a pretty little village next to Shawnee.

So this time I fueled and hydrated far better than 2 years ago so even though I sacrificed my quads to the Bike God I bettered my time by 10 min. Damn I say since I figured this to be the last Half I do, but now I’m already thinking of what I need to do to shave another 10-15 min off next year. A tremendous number of locals were involved either competing or volunteering and it was great. I’m glad to see the Pocono reputation as an adventure sport destination is alive and well and I hope we can keep this spirit alive and have an even bigger/better one next year. So now I can go to the Cupcake Challenge at Shawnee this weekend guilt free – and that my friends is what triathlons are all about – that and the beer of course.

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it. Oprah Winfrey

I thought Sunday’s REV3 was awesome! The REV3 people did an amazing job, they made the “impossible” happen! Through determination and smarts they overcame one obstacle after another! I’m sure as is normal there are details to be worked out for next year’s event but overall stuff appeared to go reasonably well. To cover the distance this event traversed, think about it, 70.3 miles of obstacles! The REV3 folks are crazy good!

I was so proud watching the athletes, especially our locals! You guys rocked! The pain and effort on some folks faces showed these individuals were not about to let anything come between them and their very best effort!

There were a number of people to whom I shouted words of encouragement to who responded, “I’m only here to finish!” I’d LOVE to have the time with them to tell them how proud I am to see them “only finish!” I know very well how much work goes into only finishing! I know the hours of dreaming and sweating and working, wondering does anybody know or care what I am going through to prepare to “only finish!”

The difference between the magnificent athletes on the podium and those who “only finish” is mostly God given talent! It’s certainly not HEART! Some who “only finish” only do so because of a HEART that simply will not yield to pain and suffering!

SO…for those of you who will make the blessed decision to prepare to “only finish” next year’s REV3, or any event you may desire, PAHLEEZ do so with PRIDE!! Y’ALL ARE OUR HERO’S!

FROM LISA FLORY – Hi Orange Team!

A couple of things to touch base with you all about for this week.

1: Sunday is the 1st Fleetwood Trail 5K in the West End. Race starts at 9:00. We have Maureen Krinsky, Sue Gehris, Lynn Byrne, Amanda Flory, Keith Flory, and Dion Campbell helping for this race. Please arrive at 8:30 for set up.

2: October 4th, the team will be timing the Run for Kelly in East Stroudsburg but for anyone interested in running a 5K that day our own team member Phil Giaquinto who is race director for the Families First 5K on the same day has offered a free race entry to the Families First 5K. He has also added the Scott Ewing Timing Team to the race shirts as a sponsor!! Pretty awesome! Please let me know if you would like to run the race that day so we can put you in touch with Phil.

3: Finally on Friday September 26th at 6:30 at the East Stroudsburg Fire Hall we will be having a get together for the orange team and their family members. We will be providing some type of sandwiches (not sure yet what we will be making) various non-alcoholic beverages plus plates, etc. We are asking everyone to bring something to share and anything else they would like to drink. Let me know if you plan on attending so we have a head count. We thought it would be a great chance for the orange team to get together outside of timing a race!

Thanks again for all that you guys do!

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.” – Helen Keller,

I think of my running as having come in three stages.

Early in my life of running I was not be fully aware of the benefits, the ever increasing blessings, that I was about to receive. I wanted to lose some weight, gain some fitness and increase my life expectancy, and appease my desire for competition.

During my initial years I found myself torn between running fast and running far. I was not a gifted runner in that I couldn’t do both as many runners could. I learned that if I did the majority of my runs fast and somewhat short in distance I got faster. I also learned when I slowed down and kept my breathing easy I could day dream and pray and run all day long!

I flirted with running, I got up close but every so often I would step back a bit, I feared becoming committed to something so simple and yet so delicate. I saw some around me who loved running so much suddenly injured or aged and unable to continue at a level that gave them satisfaction! I feared disappointment and rejection!

Through running the word passion took on new meaning for me. I found myself passionate to the point that a day without running wasn’t a complete day. Soon I began to realize that running completed me, I needed my daily run to feel whole!

I don’t know when the first day I really yearned to run was. I just know the feeling that was inside me, there wasn’t ever going to be a run fast enough or far enough! I began to dream of a day I would begin a run that would not EVER end!

To love without passion, is not a complete love. I love to run. I love a run filled with passion and competition!

I don’t know when, I don’t know where, but running became my blessed mistress and she has been heavenly good to me!

I want to share my love and my passion with YOU! Give running a chance and see how he/she will be a blessing to YOU!

FROM ELISSA – some editing – Brian and I are going out for 18 (at least that’s what’s on my schedule, not sure about him) this Sunday. Course undetermined as of yet. Pace ~9mm. Likely from the mill. 730. Open to negotiation depending on joiners. If anyone wants to come, we’d welcome the company.
Thanks!

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” – Helen Keller,

WEEKEND RESULTS:
Saturday – The times posted by the runners at Bird in Hand were affected by extreme weather conditions with many runners needing medical attention due to heat. As a runner we all need to be constantly aware that our wellbeing and safety are our own responsibility. Because an event continues in extreme conditions does not mean we must or should continue or even start! We must all consider how well we are trained and if we are really in condition to deal with the circumstances of the day

Sunday – For the VIA Events the Lord of marathons took what was nasty running weather Saturday and changed it into a wonderful low temp & humidity Sunday in the Lehigh Valley!

It was hard to believe the extremes of 2 days in one weekend.

FROM EILEEN (some editing)
Lisa Pizzuto told me about the yoga classes she was taking at Boundless Yoga (behind the mill) and the deal she got to try out a bunch of classes. I called Christine, the owner, to ask her about it since I didn’t see it on the site. Here is the info she gave me and said I was welcome to share it with our running group. :)

$30 for a 30-day unlimited class pass. This deal ends on 10/31. New students can register at their first class they plan on attending. Please plan on arriving 15 minutes before the class to set up and pay for your pass. Their schedule is on their website at http://www.boundlessyogastudio.com/class-schedule–calendar-of-events.html

Thanks Rod! :)

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”

With the rapid increase in the number of our communities cyclists I’m concerned with how many don’t know the rules of the road for cyclists. It’s obvious the lion’s share of motorists on our roads are not aware a bicycle is considered a vehicle and has the same right to a 9 foot vehicle lane cars and trucks have and that cars and trucks are required to give a bicycle a 4 foot clearance lane when passing. Here’s more:
PA bike safety laws

http://www.pacommutes.com/biking/safety-and-laws/

PA promoted bike routes

http://www.pacommutes.com/biking/statewide-bike-routes/

BOSTON REGISTRATION begins Monday http://www.baa.org/

More about STROUDFEST

I was with some of the Pocono Greyhound club including Suzanne Ewing who came with some of their hounds to participate in memory of Scott for the first mile where they turned back. These animals are just magnificent. Their proud and loving owners are truly admirable!

I enjoyed walking with the greyhounds and their owners as we slowly fell back so I couldn’t see the next “last person up in front of us any longer. At 1 mile the hounds decided to turn back, so now I had to hustle and catch up to the next last person or folks.

I walked most of the last mile with Rich Muscarello, Anthony Muscarello’s dad. Rich was an over the road driver at Roadway much of his life which included some of the time Scott worked there.

Rich has survived removal of his prostate due to cancer and now struggles with a continue battle against bladder cancer which is presently dormant but requires continuing watching.

Rich was doing his second 5K, he has lost 85 pounds since last July. I love Rich’s love for his wife and family and his positive attitude and outlook on life! He is truly a fine and courageous man and his 3rd in age finish lite his competitive fire! Lord willin’ I know we will be seeing Rich on 5K race course again!

THIS WEEK & WEEKEND:
09/06 – BIRD IN HAND HALF MARATHON Thanks to Darleen Mostellar bringing this to my attention, I had overlooked listing and I know of several folks headed there. Darleen will be receiving the Road Apples Award for doing it the same calendar year as the Garden Spot Marathon.

REV3 Triathlon

FROM MONICA – Some editing, an appeal for volunteers and important info for those considering volunteering!

Hi Rod,

We would be delighted if you mention our volunteer needs to your followers via email and in your Pocono Record blog. Feel free to have anyone interested in volunteering mention that they are representing PARC. For each shift filled under the club, Rev3 will be donating $15. For example if 20 people volunteer under the running club, Rev3 will donate $300 to PARC. Each volunteer will receive a snack box and a volunteer t-shirt as an additional token of appreciation. So it’s a win-win opportunity!

If possible you can mention some big thanks to the…
• Pocono Mountains Vacation Bureau for making the Poconos the mecca for adventure sports!
• The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort for being a topnotch event and expo host!
• Tri-Pocono Multisport Club and Northeast Site Contractors for arranging preview rides and more!
• The community residents, townships and municipalities for being big supporters of the event!
• And last but not least, the volunteers! Without them, this event would not be made possible!
Rod, thanks again for your support in our event. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Regards,

Mónica

I (Rod) would like to add that when I hear Northeast Site Contractors mentioned above I think of local resident, business owner and member of Northeast Site Contractors, and tri-athlete Brian Winot.

When Tony Muscarello and PARC pulled together the Ruben Torres 5K Northeast Site Contractors stepped up and hit a LONG BALL! They made significant contributions to the event and to the Torres Family.

Brian Winot is a doer, he works hard, he gets stuff done! I admire this young man and his community spirit, he has contributed significantly to the process of staging this event here in our community. Brian is a well-seasoned tri-athlete already with significant accomplishments to his credit, though it is my belief his best are yet to come! Having already done yeoman work in bringing this event here, Brian will also be out there leading a large group of our local triathletes as they compete mightily in the age group competition and y’all will join with me and root for him ever swim stroke, peddle stroke, and running stride along the way!

Let’s help make the Rev3 events a success and support our local Triathletes as well as those coming here to visit and participate in the event!!

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
“Running isn’t a sport for pretty boys…It’s about the sweat in your hair and the blisters on your feet. It’s the frozen spit on your chin and the nausea in your gut. It’s about throbbing calves and cramps at midnight that are strong enough to wake the dead. It’s about getting out the door and running when the rest of the world is only dreaming about having the passion that you need to live each and every day with. It’s about being on a lonely road and running like a champion even when there’s not a single soul in sight to cheer you on. Running is all about having the desire to train and persevere until every fiber in your legs, mind, and heart is turned to steel. And when you’ve finally forged hard enough, you will have become the best runner you can be. And that’s all that you can ask for.” – Paul Maurer, The Gift – A Runner’s Story

Thanks to a special friend and old time Mill Rat I learned something really cool about myself. I really don’t speak English all that good and for years I’ve felt a bit guilty because I don’t speak any foreign language. Phil Svoboda emailed me and pointed out the word I used Friday “wahlah” is really a French word and its spelled VIOLA. Soooo much to my relief I learned I do speak some French, I just don’t spell in French so good! I gotta work on spelling, both English and French!

NEWS ABOUT REV3
Our local triathletes are in the final 2 weeks and days of preparation for the Rev3 competition at and around Shawnee Inn on September 14th.

Hope is this will be both a spectacular event and a financially successful event that will continue for many years to come! These events cost a great deal of money to stage and conduct safely. An event of this nature causes some inconvenience to both local residence as well as visitors. Everyone’s patience can be tested, I hope and pray we pass that test as events like this can put much needed money into all our local business!

Meanwhile we have an opportunity to take part in the event as volunteers and also make some money for 501c3 charitable organizations.

FROM MÓNICA STARTARI:
Hello Rod,

Greetings from the Revolution3 Triathlon (Rev3)! Our race is fast approaching on Sunday, September 14, 2014!

I spoke to Tony Muscarello from PARC last week (he’s CCed in this email) and he mentioned you have a nice following of local runners. So I wanted to see if you could reach out to them via email. Attached is the monetary incentive program that Rev 3 has to offer for volunteer groups. Anyone that would like their volunteer time, to benefit PARC, can sign up as a representative of PARC (they don’t have to be members of the running club).

He/she would have to notate in the “group” field when they register that they are with “PARC”. For every shift filled, we will donate $15 to the club (so if 30 people volunteer, that’s $450 raised for the club). As you can see, it is a fantastic way to raise funds and also do community service.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks again!
