“Get going. Get up and walk if you have to, but finish the damned race.”
-Ron Hill to Jerome Drayton during the 1970 Boston Marathon

YEOOOOW!! IT’S SUPER BOWL WEEKEND!

It’s been said that there are folks trying to get Super Bowl weekend made into a National Holiday!?? That makes me feel foolish! At my house it’s been a national holiday since 1967! I HOPE y’all catch up soon!

For some there will be super bowl races! For some there will be super bowl parties! For ME and others there will be super bowl TRAINING! My training will begin on the McDade Trail with a run distance to be determined by my knee and an assortment of NEW physical concerns that have developed. My mental concerns haven’t changed, I AM nuts! BUT I will toe the line and give it my best go!! The atmosphere on the McDade trail is so heavenly uplifting! And Scott and Itze, and many fond running memories are ALWAYS there!

The run will be followed by coffee, chocolate, an assortment of foods and drinks that will give Grammie and my doctor night mares!

It’s all about what Ron Hill said; finish the heavenly race! As individuals we are so limited. But as family, as a united community, we can do ANYTHING! That should be our goal! That must be what we are about! Let’s RUN together!

THIS WEEKEND
02/05 – THE SUPERBOWL TAILGATE TROT 10K is a local Superbowl Sunday tradition. 2017 will mark the 16th year for this race. Each year local runners brave the elements and meet at the LVRR Clubhouse in Lehigh Parkway for some chilly race day fun. An open pit fire keeps racers warm before and after the race. http://lvrr.org/

Check out the http://www.neparunner.com/ & https://www.pretzelcitysports.com/ websites for much more complete calendars and results.
There is zero on the Pocono Area Running Club website calendar???
