“stuff ‘round the mill”
“If the mind’s not strong, the body acts weak, even if it’s not. If the mind says it’s too cold or too rainy or too windy to run, the body will be more than happy to agree. If the mind says it would be better to rest or recover or cut practice, the body will be glad to oblige.”
― Wendelin Van Draanen

FROM LISA FLORY:
We are coming up on the anniversary of the loss of our friend, Scott Ewing. In talking about ways to celebrate the things he was to us we wanted to get together and do some of the things that he liked to do. This is the plan we came up with to include a few of those things!
We are going to meet on Sunday, May 24th at 7:30 am. We will meet at JM Hill School parking lot. Run will be a run that Scott always wanted to do, a run up to the top of East Broad Street hill and back to the school. Its only around 2 miles so if anyone wants to try it more than once they can! After the run we will get on our bikes and head out for a “stop and smell the flowers” bike ride. Plan is to wind up with about 20ish miles. We will send out an email with the route in a few weeks. After we all finish up with the run/biking anyone that would like to is invited to head to Rudy’s for a super dog and conversation (another one of Scott’s favorites).
FROM ROD – The run you’re describing is roughly 1.6 miles round trip; from Warren St & EB up to 447 and back down to Warren St. & EB. I refer to this which is one of my favorite hill training runs as East Broad St. Hills. I usually go left at 447 and then turn left onto Franklin Hill Rd and back to the intersection of Warren and EB St. which brings the loop distance to 1.8. I like to do 2 clockwise and 2 counter clock wise, that way you un-wind and keep from screwing yourself into the ground. If you do 4 loops I promise you that you WILL feel and look shorter when you’re finished! Four loops are about 7.25 miles.
