“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.

FROM JIM DUDEN – LOCO Marathon and Half Marathon – 2014 Marathon Results: 46% Qualify for Boston!
http://locomarathon.com/ This is yet another of the marathons developed and designed expressly to get you into Boston! Thank you Jim!!!

THIS WEEKEND:
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 lflory@ptd.net or (570)977-3023 or Lynn Byrne at (570)872-7947 or lynnbyrne@verizon.net

Hope to see you all out there on Sunday!!

“stuff ‘round the mill”
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt

The Run for the Red or the Pocono Marathon began was a dream by Bob Wertz who inspired many of us here in this community to join him and make it happen. Dreams don’t make things happen! Hard working people with confidence and belief in their abilities make dreams happen.

The tenth year was a celebration of many things! Perseverance being at the top of the list!

Bryan Morseman is a magnificent runner! Bryan has won five times since 2009, that’s 5 out of 7 years! It’s simply incredible!

Throughout the 10 years there have been several course changes required, one year was nearly canceled before a last ditch course was discovered.

We’ve gone from the whole course being closed to traffic to this year’s when few if any roads were completely closed.

In my mind the stars of this year’s marathon must include our local police forces! Our policemen and policewomen took charge of the roads and streets! They slowed traffic and created safe passage for us throughout the event! Some officers helped with runners in distress! Our police forces are a BLESSING!

Volunteers are the breath of life in this event. No how no way would the RFR happen if there weren’t for the blessing of the gracious volunteers!

I just don’t like it when someone yells, “your almost there, your almost finished!” I’m never finished; I’m just beginning training for next year.

So here we are; half way to our 20th celebration! The thought of crossing the finish line in 10 years is the dream I will need to get through the next 10! I promise I will be in/finished before sundown Sunday, May 18th, 2025. Please please PLEASE wait for me….

“stuff ‘round the mill”
“One foot in front of the other. Repeat as often as necessary to finish.”
-Haruki Marukami

Mike Wardian former Pocono Marathon Champion set a new world record 50K on a treadmill at 2:59.49!
What is interesting about that is that many feel treadmill running is easier than running on a road/street/trail. Both Michael’s best performance at Caumsett Park and the World 50K records are much faster!

Joe Fejes won the 6 day event I mentioned Tuesday and ran 606 miles for a new American Record! Joe is the man!

Remember a few weeks and months ago when you wanted and prayed for just one warm day to run. The good news is your prayers were heard; Sunday will be the gift YOU hoped for! Do not blame anybody but yourself! You wanted WARM, here it comes! Don’t give me not this warm nonsense!

89 degrees ain’t SO hot! But it’s getting close as we haven’t had much warm weather to get acclimated for the temps being forecast.

A couple of thoughts about dealing with the heat; sun screen or light weight long sleeve shirt! OMG I am so excited I can hardly type! In 48 hours I/we will be standing at the start line bursting at the seams to get going! Okay, light weight cap or visor to keep the sun off your face.

Our course is a pretty darn good course for a hot day!! As we approach the half way point, about 12.95 miles, at Crescent Lodge you cross over the Paradise Creek. From there to mile 21 the Paradise Creek flows alongside of the road (rte 191) until you reach mile 21 where it flows into the Brodhead Creek.

While many runners won’t walk into a creek because of getting their shoes wet there is always the option of taking your shirt off and dipping it in the cool water and then putting back on. You can take your cap and scoop up water from the creek and pour it all over your body. ORRR you sit right down in the creek and praise the good Lord above for this wonderful day and this magnificent experience!

As always, Sunday MUST BE a safe rather than sorry day. No extreme chances, NONE! Yes, we have to start in order to finish; but this not be an end all proposition! There are many marathons in our futures if we wish so! Light headedness, the feeling of fainting means STOP! Cool off! Seek medical aid if you’re not recovering fairly quickly! No “finish” is worth being hospitalized or worse!

I will be bopping along with the lyrics of “I love a rainy night” by Eddie Rabbitt in my mind!

Together or alone, we are a blessed community! We lift each other UP! We all need to toe the line Sunday morning with our bodies FULL of water. FULL of confidence! FULL of joy! FULL of thankfulness for the many many blessings of the day!

I gotta go for a run before I burst!
the first RFR was MAGNIFICENT! The 10th will be GLORIOUS!

Attached is a very good Marathon Checklist, By Keith Brantley & Jon Sinclair

NEXT THURSDAY, MAY 21, MARKS ONE YEAR SINCE WE LOST SCOTT. I HOPE TO WRITE A BIT ABOUT MY FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS ABOUT SCOTT TO SEND OUT AND SHARE WITH Y’ALL. PLEASE SEND THE THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS ABOUT SCOTT YOU CARE TO SHARE WITH OUR COMMUNITY BY WEDNESDAY EVENING, PLEASE.

FROM TOM – PARC’s water stop on the Pocono Marathon Course – If you would like to volunteer, or you have any questions, please call me at (570)872-6473 or email tburbage@ptd.net. Its okay to just show up, but I’d like to have an approximate head count.

“stuff ‘round the mill”
NEVER GIVE UP ON SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN’T GO A DAY WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT. – Sir Winston Churchill

WOW is that an interesting thought! I’m not going to tell y’all some of the things I can’t go a day without thinking about, there are SO many of them!

At the moment my deepest thoughts and fears are about the Pocono Marathon. My thoughts include what a joyous occasion it will be! And it WILL BE a joyous occasion!

In 2006 in preparation for the inaugural RFR I ran 2 marathons and one ultra marathon during the 6 weeks leading to the RFR. That’s not good practice if one wants to run fast marathon. But it is magnificent fun if you want to run and meet like minded people!

One of the marathons was the Boston Marathon with my dear friend Bill Carlton. Bill and I had a blast! Bill thinks he’s funny…and he is!

At one point Bill and I got separated for an hour or so and I found myself talking with this lovely young lady from New Jersey. I told her about the first Pocono Marathon coming up and invited her to join us and sure enough on marathon morning there she was in the stadium lot waiting to board a bus to the start. Sometimes all you have to do is ask people to join you!

As the first RFR approached I knew deep down into my soul I would cruise through the event with a whole gaggle of friends enjoying the unbelievable dream of there being at least ONE marathon here in the Pocono’s. A marathon right here in the Pocono’s…we mere mortals didn’t think or consider it EVER being possible! A marathon here would be impossible…for mere mortals.

Runners are some of the hardest working rascals around! We can run hundreds of miles per month, thousands per year, and laugh and enjoy life most every step along the way. We tend to be regimented and follow the guide lines established by those who’ve run ahead of us and shown the way. While we try to be unique the reality is running is not rocket science, it’s continuing to put one foot in front of the other over and over again until you’ve had your fill. Then you get up the next day and do it again.

Sunday the setting for our TENTH Pocono Marathon will be festive, it will be a BLESSED day.

It will be possible because of a mortal man who is truly a cut above most of us, his name is Bob Wertz!

Bob and the Red Cross organization, its array of magnificent staff and volunteers have been and will continue to work with the graceful skills and talents they have been blessed with to make this a memorable event. They will guide us and care for us as they have in the previous 9 years. And when the event is over and we runners are headed off to recover and delight in our accomplishments, THEY will be left there cleaning up behind us.

I hope y’all will join me in telling every volunteer, ALL the RED CROSS folks how much we appreciate their hard work and their service to our community. Hopefully we will have earned them some money so when a disaster comes, and in this life there will ALWAYS be disasters, they have the resources to continue the work they do which is a blessing to and for us all!

DOLORES EVERETT YOU ARE A BLESSING!!!

NEXT THURSDAY, MAY 21, MARKS ONE YEAR SINCE WE LOST SCOTT. I HOPE TO WRITE A BIT ABOUT MY FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS ABOUT SCOTT TO SEND OUT AND SHARE WITH Y’ALL. PLEASE SEND THE THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS ABOUT SCOTT YOU CARE TO SHARE WITH OUR COMMUNITY BY WEDNESDAY EVENING, PLEASE.

“stuff ‘round the mill”
You’ve always had the power my dear; you just had to learn it for yourself! – Glinda- Wizard of Oz

In 2001, about the time I was reaching my running pinnacle, my sister Carol Ann died due to a drug over dose.

In the middle of the night when I was 11 years old I heard my mother crying out for me from the kitchen below my bedroom. I got up and ran to the kitchen to find my mother giving birth to my first sister, Carol Ann.

My father was working the 3rd shift in a factory nights and during the day time he drove a delivery truck for a furniture store.

Carol Ann was a troubled child from day one; she could be a REAL brat! In her teen age year she ran away from home twice. While always declaring and struggling for personal independence I don’t believe she ever had any inner confidence or felt worthy of her life. She lived her life taking risk after risk; in her mid teens she found her false courage and strength in illegal drugs and sex!

Carol Ann left behind a family who loves and misses her dearly! She was special, she just never knew it!

At times while running and watching young women building their confidence and womanhood through running I can’t help but dream thoughts of how running may have inspired and changed Carol Ann’s life!

Tonight I will be at the GOTR event watching one of my granddaughters graduate and I will thank the Lord above for this organization and their program and the blessed works it does for the blessed girls in our community! Most of all, most whole heartedly, I will be thankful for the leaders and mentors that selflessly give their time and talent leading and helping our girls learn for themselves that their lives have a blessed meaning!

The treasure to be found in our GOTR, like any organization or community, is found in the minds and hearts and dedication of its membership!

May the Lord, along with our support, continue His blessings upon the Girls on the Run!

FROM DOLORES EVERETT 05/08 – GOTR 5K IS FRIDAY NIGHT 6:00 PM AT DANSBURY PARK IF ANYONE WANTS TO COME OUT AND RUN WITH A GIRL OR HELP!!

FROM TOM – PARC’s water stop on the Pocono Marathon Course – If you would like to volunteer, or you have any questions, please call me at (570)872-6473 or email tburbage@ptd.net. Its okay to just show up, but I’d like to have an approximate head count.

THIS WEEKEND:

YEOW! Nine days to the Pocono Marathon, marathon relay, and the 5K! Ten years! Preparation is at fever pitch! Details details details! Who is taking care of the details!? The answer, a magnificent group of people! Many of them have already felt the wrath of the saying “no good deed goes unpunished!” But for 10 years in an effort to raise funds for the RED CROSS while providing a first class community event they have sucked up the agony and weariness and moved forward! It’s amazing! The leadership and volunteers of the RED CROSS and other organizations committed to making this event happen even when many of the people who will benefit most for it happening throw up the meanest road blocks gives and insight to the commitment, the strength, and courage of our leader/s!

GOD BLESS YOU BOB WERTZ!

FWIW, I’m doing all the noon and early afternoon runs I can! It appears we may be running in mid August temperatures next Sunday!

PARC/Run for the Red volunteers wanted and needed!

FROM TOM BURBAGE:

 

We still need volunteers for the first water stop of the marathon. It’s a fun way (and social) way to spend the morning. You get a great view of the race, and you’re finished by around 9 am.

The water stop is at the intersection of route 940 and Short Lane. I plan to be there by 6:30 to check paperwork, set up tables, mix Gatorade, etc. If other people can arrive between 6:40 and
7:20, that would be great.

If anyone has large clean sheets of clean cardboard, please bring them.

If you want to use GPS, the easiest way may be to search for Pocono Mountain Regional Police (2454 Route 940, Pocono Summit). The water stop is 0.8 miles west of the police station.

It’s also:

2.2 miles west of interstate 380 and route 940 interchange.
0.8 miles east of Van Gilder’s Jubilee Restaurant

If you prefer coordinates, they are: North 41 degrees 06.703′, West 75 degrees 26.387′.

If you would like to volunteer, or you have any questions, please call me at (570)872-6473 or email tburbage@ptd.net. Its okay to just show up, but I’d like to have an approximate head count.

Thanks,
Tom

“stuff ‘round the mill”
“There are no shortcuts. Be patient and look long-term. It’s a foolish idea that if you do a little more, faster, then you’ll get better than the rest. It ignores the fact that you must train at your optimal level, not your maximum level. Consistency is the secret to improvement and success. You have to keep training when others lose interest.”
-Robert de Castella, 1983 World Marathon Champion

Here comes Law Day! For most of y’all reading this law day has no real significance. I mean Law is associated with our justice system and lawyers and EVERYBODY hates lawyers! Their wives hate ‘em, their husbands hate ‘em, their kids hate ‘em so what’s up with Law Day!??

Law Day is by far the oldest running event here in our community. Our older members in this running community can remember when Law Day was the only continuing event here in Monroe County.

And then the surge of new better advertised events came and Law Day became less significant and began losing its appeal to our younger runners especially those who prefer 5K’s.

If it were not for the dogged determination of Edwin Krawitz, our beloved “Itze” the event would have passed quietly from our list of our local running events.

One of my favorite memories of Law Day was the day Jake and I were passing Fisher’s mom while running Law Day and she was cursing the course the event and the silly bastard who talked her into doing this DAMN run! Her suffering brought so much joy to my heart, it was touching!

So Sunday, myself and many others, will toe the Law Day line with our hearts and minds filled with honor and love for a magnificent man, our eternal leader Itze, and his lovely wife Bobbie, as we run to the best of our ability over the Law Day course past their home! Our lives and our community have truly been blessed by the Krawitz presence amongst us!

Thank you all for kind the kind wishes and compliments to Grammie for her first half marathon! To those of y’all that offered the snide remarks to me some about tricking her into doing it I have only offer one explanation. My only explanation for our 51 years of marriage, “I may not always have been the man she wanted, but I ALWAYS have been the man (devil) she’s needed!”

“stuff ‘round the mill”
“One of the main reasons that we lose our enthusiasm in life is because we become ungrateful..we let what was once a miracle become common to us. We get so accustomed to his goodness it becomes a routine..”
― Joel Osteen

We’re inside 3 weeks until the tenth RFR! My enthusiasm for and about this years event is hard to put into words! I hardly take a breath that doesn’t include the anticipation and thought of the coming event! I can’t talk about it; I try not to think about it too much, I’m feeling ready to burst! I feel like a child waiting for Christmas morning!

I keep reliving memories of RFR marathons past. The memories are some of the greatest of my running life! What can possibly be in store for number TEN? I know one thing; it’s going to be WONDERFUL!

Here is a picture of one of the marvels the RFR provided us with. The presence of Lt. Colonel Fred Dummar and Capt Ivan Castro coming here to run with us! Two men worthy of our honor and respect!

FROM SARAH NAUGHTON:
July 11, 2015: LINDA CREED BREAST CANCER 5K RUN/WALK, 9am start. At the Pinecrest Swim Club, Pocono Pines. Online registration is open until Jul 8th $23, day of event is cash only $28.

PENN RELAYS – 121st #Penn Relays (April 23-25, 2015)!
FROM RICH PRICE: – To go along with your quote today about mind over body, rain, cold and wind, Alex ran at the Penn Relays in the Olympic Development 5000 at 10:30 p.m. last night in 39 degrees, sprinkles and wind. Brutal. Still ran 15:05. Rich

Results attached

ST. LUKE’S HALF MARATHON & 5K
The website specifically states their results may not be copied and sent out so y’all will need to check them out for yourselves. In the search box if you type in a town name all the runners from that town will appear. Stroudsburg bring up both Eburg nd Stroudsburg runners. Results can be found here: http://edge.raceresults360.com/queencity/MBqTaK/results#/results::1430152575288

FWIW – for Christmas I bought Grammie an entry into St Luke’s without telling her. Most family members thought I wouldn’t live through Christmas. Grammie hasn’t run in 10 to 15 years though she does some walking. Her previous long run was six miles! I also gave her some cash as a Christmas gift.

Grammie is 68 and while in her early mid fifties she talked about doing a half but Grammie has always first been a mother, then a grandmother, and ALWAYS a supporter of other people’s dreams! Rarely, if ever, does she take time for her own.

Two days after Christmas Grammie gave me the cash back, she said the entry was enough of a gift!???

Throughout her training for St Luke’s she missed several training runs I had scheduled for her because her children and grandchildren ALWAYS come first. One night it was almost 8 until went out to run so she could spend time with our grandchildren. I worried and I worried, can I help her be ready when everyone else comes first! I had to repeatedly remind myself, worry is not a virtue, patience and love are. All I could do was to provide all the support she would allow and hope it old be enough.

Sunday morning we set out as we has trained most every Sunday afternoon leading up to the half, Grammie with her music playing and me listening to every foot fall and every breath she took. For the first 7 miles I had to keep reminding her to slow her pace, she was a bit over anxious. We walked some inclines and ran all flats and declines. As we progressed past 8 miles we walked every incline and as we would approach the top I would simply say giddy up and Grammie would respond. I didn’t have to spur her once; I never had to go to the whip! Like the thoroughbred she is, she had come determined to succeed!

For the first 11 miles Grammie smiled occasionally and chatted with folks along the way, she was having fun! The number of local running friends that took time, went out of their way, to cheer and encourage her touched both of our hearts deeply!

At mile 11 I said Grammie we have 30 minutes left. Grammie responded “let’s get ‘em done; this isn’t so much fun anymore!” YES! She was beginning to suffer, my mad selfish plan as finally working!

Stats are 3 hours and 17 minutes. She consumed 8 to 10 skittles and 20 ozs of WAWA peach flavored ice tea (no water) along the way. My belief is runner’s fuel for a race in the days and weeks and months leading up to race day, you can’t wait until the gun goes off and shove goo and gunk into your gut and expect it to behave! Once into the race you must provide small controlled amounts of sugar to keep the fire burning. The rumor that she was using red bull with vodka isn’t true, but I was!

The run was one of the finest days of my life! And I have had WAY more than my fair share of really fine days!

Now that I’ve have this gift giving thingy down pat who knows what delightful adventures Grammie may be in for next???
