stuff ‘round the mill
You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man’s initiative and independence.
- Abraham Lincoln
WESTERN STATES – the scene of a whole bunch of competitors exhibiting character and courage during an exciting 100 mile race this past weekend. Jim led the race for 90 miles. At 80 miles he was way under the course record. At 90 miles Jim found himself physically fine but with his brain fried he went off course and ended up finishing 18th. Both these young men are extremely talented, humble, and gracious. There is much to be learned if you have time to watch these videos.

APPALACHIAN TRAIL HIKE – FROM JAKE FLORY – There were five of us that went on that incredibly beautiful seven mile hike. There were some pretty amazing views shared with great friends. Lastly, I was glad that squirrels, chipmunks and some friendly dogs were the only animals we came across. It was so much fun and I would definitely do it again sometime soon!
Picture of Jake and pretty girls attached : )
WAWA still closed – I ran into one of the lovely WAWA clerks at another location this morning and she told me that a request has been extended to Ken Barthold to put up a tent at the Mill for the Mill Rats to gather under after their morning runs. What wasn’t clear was if he does that will WAWA be putting a coffee pot there??? We’re not going back the Dr. Molina’s instant coffee! I did see one Mill Rat spitting out Dunkin’ Donuts coffee this past weekend! Probably was the heat…
