“stuff ‘round the mill”
Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart. For as long there is a memory, they’ll live on in our hearts. – Author Unknown
Rest and recovery have been the ticket this week for many of us. But don’t lose sight of events ahead, via is 16 weeks from this Sunday. Steamtown is 20. There’s not much time to waste.
I want to mention Ed Gavin Jr. who is one of my heroes! Ed ran his 10th consecutive RFR with us on Sunday. In October he will run his 20th consecutive Steamtown. I’ve lost count but I know he’s run more than a dozen JFK 50 mile races.

05/23 – ROSETO REMEMBRANCE RUN – For more information call Faith Christian School (610)588-3414 or find us on Facebook under Roseto Remembrance Run.
What / where is Roseto. Roseto is a small community located at the southern base of Bangor (the Blue Mountain) Mountain. Roseto is EXTREMELY rich in and proud of its Italian Heritage.
Follow route 191 south and in Roseto at the flashing light 4 way stop follow the signs to the ball field! Come and share the spirit of the 5K, the Italian heritage, and the spirit of Faith Christian School and its students and supporters!
Last year was the initial Roseto Remembrance Run and Scott’s Orange Team was treated with honor and compassion! It was very touching as they owed us nothing, but they shared our loss equally with the memory of their own losses!
Roseto is a good place and its filled with good people! Come; have a runnin’ good time and see if I’m right, I know I’m right!
Oh yeah, here’s a PS – Roseto has a mail man, Dave I don’t recall his last name; he has run over 50,000 miles since 1976! He is an AWESOME runner and a very nice man! While people talk about running this that or the other thing Dave just goes out and runs it.
05/24 – More details about the gathering on Sunday in memory of Scott Ewing to celebrate some of the fun things we did with him:
FROM LISA – Meet at JM Hill School parking lot in East Stroudsburg at 7:30 am. The school is located on East Broad Street which runs between Route 209 and Route 447. If you turn at the light at Rite-Aid onto East Broad Street the school is a few blocks up on the right. From Route 447 it is a little under a mile on the left.
We will do a short run up the hill that Scott always wanted to do a race on! Up and back and then we will get on our bikes for a stop and smell the flowers bike ride. Lynn and I measured out a 26.3 mile course that winds through Cherry Valley and then back into Stroudsburg and ending at the school. There are also two shorter versions of the ride that are 11 miles and 17.5 miles. Plan is to make sure no one rides alone and that plenty of laughs and fun happen along the way! Finally, after the run/bike we plan to meet at Rudy’s around 11:00 for supers and conversation (from rod, a “super” is a special hot dog wrapped in BACON people come for thousands of miles to eat at Rudy’s + I’ll bet beer is involved also!) if anyone wants to join.
If anyone has any questions, please either contact me at email@example.com or (570)977-3023 or Lynn Byrne at (570)872-7947 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you all out there on Sunday!!
