I MUST say it again, I LOVE this weather!

As I left the mill this morning I had the thought, “jeez I hope I never get this right!” If I ever got it right there may not be a reason to continue practicing! Dress warm, be safe, continue to RUN!

I LOVE this weather!

One of the most pleasant experiences I find is seeing other runners! Young and old, fast or slow, there is a communion we runners of all abilities share in. There is so much inspiration seeing other running and working on their fitness. Some pass by with a smile and a friendly greeting while other are deeply involved in their run, or in problem solving and haven’t the time for a greeting. Some we see while others may be towns or continents away. We all are in runner communion. We are one. We should be one.

FROM ELISSA SCHOENING here’s a partial list of her races for 2018.
She also sent a picture of her muddy shoes and socks after she was first woman in a 6 hour race on 1/1/2019. I lost it!
2018:
9 marathons (this includes one timed event that I went 27 miles in, and the back to back Two Rivers)
4 50ks (this includes 6hr events that I went 31 miles or longer on) a few of which I first female
1 50m, which sucked
13 new states, bringing me to 17 states completed.

The view from my porch

Here we are in a new year, whoopee! That’s a sincere whoopee, not sarcasm!

Many think of the New Year as marking “out with the old and in with the new.” I don’t subscribe to that adage. I see life as a continual forward motion, constantly attempting to improve every step of the way.

During this year I will observe 74 years of life, 55 years of marriage, and 27 years of running. I don’t want to cast away one year of life, one year of marriage, or one year of running. I have been blessed!

In running some classify slow easy mileage as junk miles. I’ve NEVER agreed with that thought. When I began running I ramped up my weekly/monthly/yearly mileage fairly quickly. I found myself being the butt of jokes around the mill when we discussed weekly mileage. I started reporting to the guys and gals half the actual miles I was running and I still was running more than most folks, with the exception of Ed Bermudez who at 90+ miles per week was running more mile than me! There were 6 years I ran in excess of 4,000 miles (80 mile per week). Last year due to injuries I ran less than 500 miles. Some say I ran too much, while I don’t think I ran enough.

I don’t believe I am suffering from any injuries caused by my miles. I don’t believe there is such a thing as junk miles. I believe each mile, like each year, like each and every relationship, is a building block to the person we are continually becoming. Each mile we run this year is made possible by the miles we’ve run in the past.

So, I invite y’all to join me as I run every mile I can, for the rest of my life. I plan to run the best I can and as often as I can. Please be sure to get adequate rest! Let’s do it!

FROM PRETZEL CITY SPORTS:

12/09 – SHIVER BY THE RIVER 5K & 10K WINTER SERIES – Race # 1: the 29th annual version of this race series comes back with a bang; the starting time has been moved up to 10 am and a new course with less traffic is probable. You can ONLY register for the entries series in advance and there are big savings if you do, versus signing up for the individual races. This Pagoda Pacers event has indoor registration and grub. While they give a VERY limited number of awards per race (LOADS of awards at the end for those that run 3 races or more), they have outstanding post-race grub and it’s one of the best organized events around. A meeting place and great competition for all regional runners who are not wusies afraid to run in the cold.

If I missed you please let me know!

The thanksgiving gathering at Smithfield Beach was a ton of fun and good fellowship!

Then it turned into a parc sneak attack meeting. This is the second time this happened. I could sense something was up, several folks were acting oddly.

As Art began speaking I chuckled to myself in the thought that if you don’t go to a parc meeting they will hunt you down and hold it where ever you happen to be. You cannot escape.

I found myself surprised at this action but the outcome as I recall it is that parc is being dissolved and the $4000 in the checking account will be donated to Girls on the Run. I missed a bunch of what happened and I offered no vote which was essentially unanimous except for those who as myself just slinked away.

It was quite a surprise and began a sad Thanksgiving Day for me.

I personally want to thank everyone of y’all that served on any of the boards or committees of parc. I want to thank everyone who was a parc member! Y’all are a blessing!

Keep running! PLEASE!

FROM/written by DAVY CROCKETT (Davy is a well accomplished Ultrarunner, historian and author.)

The historic JFK 50 is running today for the 56th time in Maryland. It was just won by Jared Hazen in 5:34. But a bigger story is taking place. Kimball Byron finished it for the first time in 1967 at the age of 12.
Today he is going for his 50th JFK 50 finish at the age of 63!

“It’s just one of the best days of my year,” Byron said Tuesday. “I think of it like coming home.” Byron’s wife of 36 years, Hannah, characterizes her husband’s annual pilgrimage to Washington County “like fish going to spawn every year.”

“I just know it’s going to happen,” she said. “It’s in his blood to do that. As it gets closer to the race date … its pure adrenaline. He loves the course and running in honor of his dad.” (Herald-Mail Media)

The view from my porch
There’s snow and more snow! It’s covering everything. And it’s dangerous to be out in it. But snow isn’t so tuff! You can push snow away. You can run right through snow if you care to. Sooner or later snow melts, turns to water, and runs away.
Here is the LVRR Club newsletter. These folks have SO much to be proud of. They work hard and do good works! Perhaps you may care to join and be a part of their success.

THIS WEEKEND:
11/18 – THE EWING MEMORIAL/YMCA 5K
As most know Scott was very dedicated to the YMCA. He put in countless hours with no regard for compensation nor adoration. He did it because it was the right thing for him. I hope everybody who can make there will do so. Please do so in his honor! I can assure you if this event was in your honor, Scott would be there, singing his praise about YOU!
