The view from my porch.
Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray. – Rumi

I LOVE MARATHONS! But I’m not so good at being silent when I run! It’ been a while since I’ve finished a marathon. I will carry a light but I really hope I finish before sundown!

Dick Waibel called to my attention that the RFR 5K is being dedicated to Lorraine Hamel who was killed by a car while running this past February. http://www.poconorecord.com/news/20180510/run-for-red-to-be-dedicated-to-avid-runners-memory

Cinder Cancer Derailers 5k – the event was EXCELLENT!

Philip Svoboda – 01:32:53
Some races don’t provide finish info…some do! Here’s the finish info for Phil who is one of our original Mill Rats. Phil made a turn to the left and wound up in Spokane. Most important is he won his LAST name group! As Itze would have said, if the other Svoboda’s could have beat him they would have been there!
