Generous portions of beer, chocolate, and ice cream help keep your enthusiasm up!

RFR marathon – I MISSED JIM!
218 18 James Duden, 58, East Stroudsburg, PA 1:52:31 3:45:21 3:44:36 8:34

I believe the 2 local Boston Qualifiers are – Christopher Marozzi and Timothy Arnst.

Next year the Boston Marathon will be on April 16th. That’s the same day Don Jewell turns 80. Don can no longer generate the speed required to qualify for Boston but he has run more than 20 already. Soooo we got him a well-deserved comp entry through the New England 65 and Over Running Club. Don and I are both life members of this club. It is a large and very running active club. If anyone is 65 and interested in info about the club send me an email and I get the info to you.
