stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
“Believe in the magic that’s in you, its potential, what it can achieve. But most of all believe in yourself and create a world where dreams become reality.” – Charlene A. Wilson

This could be titled how do you run your best race, or how a good friend can help you? Anyhow the following involves a treasured old friend contains my thoughts on running fast.

Edwin Itze Krawitz, a bit over 20 years ago, unknowingly gave me the tips that eventually lead to my fastest running. And he gave me one of them while doing the opposite of what I discovered I required to run my fastest.

Running with Itze 20 years ago required little effort other than staying at his pace and listening to him talk. Nobody else had to talk, Itze took care of ALL the talking, and all I had to do was trot with him.

Running with the Itze of 30 to 40 years ago would have been impossible for me, he was way too fast for me to keep up with then. Itze’s running resume is VERY impressive!

The Itze of 20 years ago had slowed considerably. In his middle 60’s speed and distance was no longer his strong suit. Storytelling had become his pride and joy and my ears yearned for my weekly dose of stories which would come on Saturday and Sunday morning when we met as a small group at the mill to scamper throughout the many local streets and trails. Itze’s stories captivated my imagination, caused me to dream of what my possibilities may be. Itze inspired me in ways that laid the foundation for many of my later exploits.

At times it was all too easy to tease and upset him just a bit by telling him I wasn’t really listening. Most everyone would joke about hearing the same stories over and over again. Slowly but surely everybody else pulled away, leaving me back with Itze listening, learning, acquiring some of the inspiration I would use later put to good use.

Itze’s favorite stories generally had something to do with a Boston Marathon. There was never any doubt in my mind, to Itze the Boston Marathon is/was THE elite running event of all times! So on one run he is telling me about this elite marathon runner girl, whose name I can’t remember, and how at a Boston Marathon he approached her and asked her if he could run with her. Her response was yes as long as he didn’t talk to her. I’m pretty sure this occurred prior the time he decided to make garlic 50% of his daily dietary intake.

Through his stories and friendship Itze helped me begin to believe in myself as a runner! My admiration of Itze caused me to make the commitment to qualify for and run at least one Boston Marathon. That story he told of the young ladies focus on her running got me to thinking and eventually realizing how important uninterrupted concentration is in running fast, and how I would have to learn to concentrate much better if I was going RACING!

As I began to learn to tolerate the strain of running faster and really racing I became aware of the fact that EVERY step counts. From the instant the gun fires until you step over the finish line your mind must be in control of every stride pushing you forward with every ounce of physical and mental energy you can call forth from your body. Your mind must control the rhythm of your breathing. Your mind must focus through your eyes and draw you to the finish line!

To accomplish what I just described, you have no time to talk or to listen as the young lady was inferring to Itze. There’s no time for a music machine, waving to the crowd, looking for friends, or any other distractions. There is only time to be in tune with every fiber in your blessed body and keep moving forward!

I also learned race courses are measured in straight lines, from the inside of a curve to the inside of the next curve, certified courses don’t follow the curve of the roads. Admittedly, this isn’t to be used during training where there may be oncoming traffic. ALWAYS go around cars

I hope this may be of interest and help to those who are interested in racing. Maybe qualifying for Boston. There are running communities where a significant degree of bragging rights is in the number of Boston competitors they field each year.

Oh yeah, Itze, you are a BLESSING!

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but on significance – and then even small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning. – Oprah Winfrey

Tons of small steps and little victories, and REALLY significant stuff happened this past weekend! Some great, some greater, bear in mind that everything is relevant to a person’s view point! Great in my viewpoint are the magnificent results turned in by our runners at the Runners World Half, The Toronto Marathon, and the REC-EX 5K Run and 1 Mile Fun and Walk!

The greater was our community’s victory experienced with the continuance without missing a beat of Barrett Township Scarecrow 5K.

My understanding is the Scarecrow began back when Jean Williams contacted Woody Geary and he laid out a course and voila, through the efforts of Jean & Woody the scarecrow event was born.

The home of the event has been and I’m sure will return to Weiler Brush, the gracious and generous folks who open their hearts and their doors and grant this event a HOME!

This year circumstances could easily have caused The Scarecrow to be cancelled. Barrett Township is filled to the brim with the strife of a lunatic murderer running amok in the area. So Kari Spannagel who is presently directing the Scarecrow got caught out on a limb called out for community help.

Without pause, Jim Tust and Shawnee Mountain answered the call! We who were there yesterday found ourselves treated with hospitality above and beyond anything expected. The Shawnee Mountain crew are a truly a God send!

I must mention there was another option created by Phil Giaquinto who set the wheels in motion to give the Scarecrow the option of possibility of moving to The Wind Gap Park for this year’s event.

The runner/walker and volunteer turnout was excellent! There were runners from the Slate Belt and all areas of Monroe County. We had walkers who hadn’t ever done a 5K before, but they were here to support the event. The course was super! Being 2 loops in the parking area we were all in touch from beginning to end.

I crossed the finish line last and decided I hadn’t had enough so headed back out and I trotted my way through a few more loops. As I ran I couldn’t help but think about the awesome folks in our community that saved the day.

My run was so peaceful! I could see and hear the awards ceremony going on, it was spectacular sight! The significance of this special day is in the nurturing, the care, and the comradery keeping us a welcoming and growing community. Y’all should be PROUD!

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
No negative self-talk, excuses, or giving up allowed here. – Lauren Covington

I don’t know of an example where putting myself or anyone else down, or coming up with an excuse to justify an incomplete ever made me feel better! While I have quit, given up on projects, events, relationships in my life, not one of these “dnf’s” ever made me a better or happier man!

Adopt a no quit philosophy and drive the negativity out of your running, training, and out of your life. Help those around you to do the same.

Let’s all make the choice together to adopt Lauren’s philosophy, no negative self-talk, excuses, or giving up allowed ‘round here.

WEEKEND RESULTS:

All who are signed up to help with this Sunday’s Barrett Scarecrow 5K please arrive at Shawnee Mountain at 8:00 to help time. Kid’s fun run starts at 8:30 and the 5K goes off at 9:00. The Food Truck Festival starts at 11:00 so please plan on staying for some good food afterwards if you can.
See you Sunday!

FROM ROD:
Lisa, “the 5K goes off at 9:00” Does this have anything to do with a cliff?
1 – Do these “Food Trucks” sell ice cream?
2 – Do these “Food Trucks” sell beer?
3 – Will there TV’s with football games on them?
4 – Will there be hammocks available for an afternoon nap?
Kari will the Troll be there? Ya gotta being the Troll Kari! Just don’t tell which one I am, SHE HATES ME! And I can’t run fast! If she catches me she’s gonna hurt me ALL over my body!

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
“It’s not whether you get knocked down. It’s whether you get up again.” Vince Lombardi

Sounds as though Badminton Bob will need some time off his knee but with time he should be fine!

Now please, PAHLEEZ do not show the man any sympathy! He can’t handle it! Sympathy completely throws him off his game! He can’t accept sympathy and he shows no one any sympathy! If Bob is smilin’ you know he’s plotting revenge! HE HATES EVERYBODY!

Oh boy, am I REALLY saying this?
GET WELL BOB! WE ALL LOVE YOU!
In a demented sort of way!

What a beautiful weekend for running!

RRCA’s Pennsylvania State 100 Mile Trail Run Championship
No local finishers in any category.

The 19th STEAMTOWN is history and it was a runner’s day! Cool, crisp, and filled with the spectacular fans that line the entire course!
FROM GINA – Congratulations to all!!

FROM LISA FLORY – Good Morning Scott’s Team!

We have some upcoming races for the orange shirt team and I wanted to touch base with you guys so you are all aware of and have the chance to help at any of them that you have time to work.

First race is this Saturday, October 18th. The Shohola 5K. I believe that Scott handled this one himself and Dion Campbell will be handling it in his place. He has a couple of volunteers but if anyone is interested and would like to see if he needs additional help his email address is dcboxers@msn.com

Sunday, October 19th we have the Barrett Scarecrow 5K which thanks to Jim Tust and his wonderful partners has temporarily relocated to Shawnee Mountain for this year’s race. I will be handling this race along with Keith Flory, Amanda Flory, Carmen Delgado, Sue Gehris, and Lynn Byrne. After speaking with Kari and because of the change in course we may need a couple of extra people so if you are available to help out please let me know!

Next Saturday, October 25th is the Knowlton Keep Calm and Fight On 5K in Columbia, NJ. Dion Campbell will be heading up this race. He has Katy Case, Eileen White, and Debbie Lenox signed up to help. If anyone else is available please touch base with Dion to let him know you can help.

Sunday, October 26th is the Women’s Resources 5K at Pleasant Valley High School. I will be heading up this one and the signup sheet shows Tom Burbage, Angelo Tullo, Jim Mannello, Gladys and Bart Spaulding, Carmen Delgado, Wendy LeDuc, and Lynn Byrne signed up to help. That should be plenty of volunteers for that race so please if you are available come on out and run it!!

November doesn’t have too many races but on November 15th the team has two races scheduled because one was rescheduled.

First race is the Delaware Valley Turkey Trot 5K up in Matamoras. Dion Campbell will be heading up this race and he could use 2-3 volunteers so if you are available please let Dion know at dcboxers@msn.com

Second race is the Rotary 5K up at Skytop. I will be handling this race and we should have enough volunteers to take care of it with Katy Case, Sue Gehris, Wendy LeDuc, and Carmen Delgado signed up.

The last race in November on the 23rd is the newly renamed Scott Ewing Memorial Y5K. We have had an incredible amount of people volunteer to help time this one! What I would really like to see is whoever wants please show up in your orange shirt over your running clothes and let’s have some people time and then other people run it. It’s going to be a very special day and I would like any and every one that wants to participate be involved!! Scott would want his team there!!

Last race on the schedule for this year is The Girls on the Run 5K at the Wesleyan Church in Stroudsburg on Saturday, December 6th. Signed up are Aysha Kovitch, Amanda Anglemyer, Nancy Wilson, Angelo Tullo, Gladys Spaulding, Bart Spaulding, Sue Gehris, Wendy LeDuc, Carmen Delgado, Eileen White, Gina Fish, and Mike Correll. This is always a fun one and one that relies on lots of participants so if you want to help please let me know. The more the merrier!!

Thanks again for all you do! Every race I feel Scott there helping his team and I’m glad we are all able to share the time together!!

Have a great day!

stuff ’round the mill

“stuff ‘round the mill”
“Live your life to the fullest potential. YOU are so beautiful. YOU are perfect. Don’t you ever feel like you aren’t. You deserve to be here. Fight for your dreams, love yourself, and be happy.” ~Savannah Outen

It’s a pretty well accepted thought that the less excess weight we carry the faster we run. There are formulas I’ve read citing each excess pound of body weight reduced will increase our racing pace by 2 to 3 seconds per mile. This has proved to be pretty accurate in my own running experience.

With this thought in mind I’d like to challenge all y’all to embark on a diet along with me to prepare for your next event, regardless of the distance.

The number one thing I want cut out of your daily diet is EXCUSES! The preparation of a pre-event excuse weigh us down! Excuses like the course or the weather or the race logistics are difficult set us up for our number two diet restriction, NEGATIVITY! Negativity is a communicable disease! It spreads like wild fire! Please don’t go there! Being negative is like a virus, it is catching! Negativity turns beautiful people ugly to be around and it weighs TONS and drags everyone near it down!

The number three daily no no is FEAR OF FAILURE! Fear of failing will heap an unnecessary load on us! We’ve done our training, we must believe are ready!

Diet restriction number four, DOUBT! We all must cut doubt out of our daily diet! Should we find ourselves beginning to think I’m not ready! My leg isn’t quite right or my back hurts! Maybe I should have done more of “this” or less of “that”!

Unfortunately we’re already knee deep in number five, WORRY! OMG I gotta LOL when I think of the time I’ve wasted with WORRY! Worry changes nothing! Worry eats the energy you’ve been training hard and fueling your body to store up for the race! Okay, you know what’s coming next. Don’t worry…be happy!

Instead of these things I’ve listed, and I may have missed some no no’s practice filling your mind and heart with HOPE! It’s not so hard to do! Think of the wonderful things you want to do. Set a plan to make them happen and fill yourself to the brim with the hope and belief that you can do them! You can do them! Believe in yourself!

Running a marathon is not the best thing you will do in your life! Running a marathon is ONE of the best things you will ever do in your life! Gather up all the negatives and toss ‘em into the first available trash disposal container you see! Give yourself the best chance at the best experience and result you are capable of! Toe the line as light and burden free as you possible can! Run with your head held high and pride beaming on your face. You really are a precious GIFT to each and every one you meet and greet! The world is a better place because of YOU! Believe it! Live like it!

Also, for years there has been a Y 5K. Scott Ewing played a huge part in supporting the YMCA 5K. The Y 5K is no longer…it is now The Scott Ewing Memorial 5K. Please, let’s all help and remind each other to begin referring to the event with the new name the YMCA has dedicated the event to, The Scott Ewing Memorial 5K.

Alternate site needed for the Barrett township Scarecrow 5K

FROM KARI
Hi Rod – I am e-mailing you in hopes that you may have a suggestion or may be able to provide some help.

Apparently it is the paper that Scarecrow Race has been post-poned but I have not been informed by the supervisors yet. But that is another story. Anyway, my real question is if you have any suggestions as to an alternate location I can have the race. I realize I may not be able to have it on the same day but I just need some help…

Thank you, Kari

FROM ROD
Let’s hear everyone’s thoughts. That cowardly scumbag killed one of our finest police officers and wounded another. We can’t let this tragedy stop the SCARECROW EVENT!

Kari needs our help, how can we help her pull this together?

RESPONSES:

FROM ROD – Kari, you have MANY dear friends in your corner.

There’s one specific offer below from Jim Tust. If it interests you I’ll put you in touch with him or you can contact him through Shawnee Mountain.

I will try not to fill everyone’s mail boxes but I will keep y’all updated appropriately. If you have another idea please pass it along!

FWIW – Trooper Alex Douglass who was wounded is/was entered in the Steamtown Marathon this Sunday.

RESPONSES:

FROM LISA FLORY

How about using the Stroudfest course? Would need to get boro of Stroudsburg and stroud township approval but maybe they would be helpful because of the situation.

FROM ADAM SOPKO

Perhaps ask Shawnee or Skytop to hold it on their grounds (as they have held endurance sporting events on their property before) – ask the local police (Barrett and Smithfield??) to “oversee” it or whatever and guarantee that a portion of the entry fees will be donated to their precinct or a local police fund, etc. of their choosing.

It can be a very low-key event but 5km is 5km and ensuring that some of the funds go to the local police, for all of their efforts with the manhunt – I think – is another excellent reason to have the race. In addition to continuing to showcase the awesome network of endurance athletes that call the Poconos home.

Just the first thought that popped into my head.

FROM MARTY ALFANO

Rod, we have some great 5k courses laid out in stroudsburg…Stroudfest,Y 5k,Run 4 Red to name a few.

 

FROM JIM TUST

Rod,

Might be able to help her at Shawnee Mountain, although we’d have to loop around parking lots to get 5k. And we would need a certificate of insurance. If her date is still Oct 19 –that’s same as our Food Truck Fest starting at 11am so race activities would have to conclude by 10:30am or so. Also I’d have to get my partners to sign off on this.

Please let me know if Kari has any interest before I take any further here.

Jim
