Running is a road to self-awareness and reliance-you can push yourself to extremes and learn the harsh reality of your physical and mental limitations or coast quietly down a solitary path watching the earth spin beneath your feet. – Doris Brown Heritage

Nine weeks to the Pocono Marathon races. My advice for those running the half and the whole is to run hills and hills and MORE hills! After driving the course last Sunday all I could think of was to find Bill Carlton and kick him in the nuts!

There is magic in running. I absolutely love to run until I’m so tired I can’t run any farther! I love to see how long it takes me to recover enough to run again!

Following is an interview Lance Armstrong did with Ryan Hall. You will be quite surprised to see the muscular development of 183 lb. Ryan Hall, one of our newest Power Lifters. The interview is over an hour long but it is chocked full of both men’s opinions and attitudes towards running and some cycling! You probably be surprised at how both men feel about running. Sad face here!

Put tons of positive emotion in your running! Run tall, display your pride when running. Be happy! Don’t be mean! Never be mean! Leave any mean in you at home, running doesn’t need mean!

I learned of really great news yesterday, Ernie Roundtree is running Boston this year! This all began with his trip to Special Olympics National Championships last year where his meeting and becoming friends with a Massachusetts police officer became an important occurrence in his life. I don’t know a lot about the whole story but I do know a VERY deserving young man has made a new friend and truly been blessed through this friendship!

I know I speak for all Ernie, we are VERY happy for you and proud of you!!!!
ROCK BOSTON ERNIE!

In addition to Ernie there are 2 other of our runners in Boston I overlooked:
Roundtree, Ernest 35 M East Stroudsburg PA USA
Price, Alex 25 M Bethlehem PA USA
Rusk, Sarah 38 F Wilmington DE USA

Please let me know of anyone I am overlooking!

No matter your infirmity running can help you heal! Running can help you strengthen and correct imperfections in your body and your mind! IT DOES! It doesn’t do crap for ugly, just ask Dan Rusk, but it will help you run faster so you have a better chance of escaping a mob chasing you for being ugly! Keeeeeep running!

Tuesday afternoon about 3:30 when the snow started falling more quickly most everybody began heading home. Truckers weren’t making pickups, there was little for me to do, so I decided to have a nice run in the beautiful snowfall.

I have a favorite course from my factory here in Roseto out through the country side to Lake Minsi and back. There was about 2 to 3 inches of snow and it wasn’t a slippery snow, the footing was good. It’s a peaceful route I really enjoy running whenever possible.

I’m headed back to my factory, less than a mile away, and I passing by some homes on a small road. There are kids playing in the snow, they are laughing and have a wonderful time, it pumped me up and made my running feel light and easy, but that didn’t last. Suddenly there is a young lady prancing alongside me. She say’s hello how are you? I responded fine, how are you? She say’s “are you okay?” I say yes to which she responds “do you need help? Now I’m actually feeling pretty dang good, so I said no “I’m fine.” She says, “I can walk you home if you want me to?” My response was “no, I’m fine”!??? So she turned around and for the remainder of my run I felt as though can I REALLY look that BAD! Oh well, next time I will BLAZE by her home!

FROM RSR: www.readysetrunpoconos.com
Groundhog Day Run or Walk
Ready Set Run
February 2nd from 8am – 10am
This event is inspired by the movie Groundhog Day. In the movie, the main character is trapped in a time loop and re-lives the same day over and over again. For this event, we have mapped a 1 mile loop that you can do over and over again. The store will be available if you need to warm up, get a drink or use the bathroom. Unlike the character in the movie, you may exit the loop at any time. You can do 1 loop, 5 loops or 10. Maybe you want to see how many loops you can do in the 2 hour time limit. How many times will you re-live the same route – It’s totally up to you!!! Hot beverages and light refreshments will be provided. Any changes to this event will be posted on Facebook.

FROM LVRR: https://lvrr.org
We have so much going on here at LVRR this month. This Sunday we kick off the Superbowl with our annual Superbowl Tailgate Trot 10k. Race day registration is available from 8:15 – 9:00 AM at the clubhouse. Race starts at 9:30.

FROM JIM DUDEN – Rod, Here is some info on a Great Race, I did the 50K in 2017, and they also have a 25K this year with it.
Also, there are more races offered at the bottom. Very well organized. Thanks, Jim Duden

The view from my porch
I don’t know about y’all but I have learned for a fact that past performances don’t insure future results. Train as hard as you can, training with all the components of smart training, is the only sure way to performance improvement!

There is the beginning of a new crew at the mill. We have the east end crew (EEC), the west end crew (WEC), and a sizable and energizing walking crew (WC). The new crew is the cripple crew (CC) started by Mark Kilker with his cane and me with my leg brace. If you care to join us bring whatever type of non-motorized ambulatory device you have and join us. Umbrellas are acceptable for heavy downpours!

I know I’m rushing things a bit but I am already totally excited about the Boston Marathon. Here’s the list of locals and others followed by our local community. If I’m missing someone PLEASE let me know!
