stuff ‘round the mill
Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant – Robert Louis Stevenson

That has to be a reference to training! Training is the planting of seeds which will be reaped on RACE DAY!!!

The progress in numbers of local races has been phenomenal. I was in a discussion about how many races we have and how much our running community has contributed to local charities. While the number of running events have increased some of the old running practices have fallen away. The very first Y 5K here in Stroudsburg was the first race I ever ran that didn’t have time splits at the mile marks. While many runners were upset, today it’s the rare race where mile splits are called. I REALLY miss them!

This year the Freedom Fest 5K was the first race I know of where the course wasn’t marked. The race director verbally read off the course description and sent the runners out to find their own way without course marshals to direct the runners. Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy an adventure as much as most anyone. So don’t call it a 5K! Just line people up, say go run where you want, we hope to see you back here in 2 (3,4,5, or 6) hours!

I know, these races are for a GOOD CAUSE! But doesn’t that mean they should be staged and marked correctly? Doesn’t the fact that they are for charity mean they are held at a HIGHER standard!??? They are to raise money for good causes! Let’s make them GOOD for running also! If they don’t include serious accurate running course why not just tell people go for a walk and mail their money to the charity and skip the running!?!?

Just sayin’.
