The view from my porch
No matter your infirmity running can help you heal! Running can help you strengthen and correct imperfections in your body and your mind! IT DOES! It doesn’t do crap for ugly, just ask Dan Rusk, but it will help you run faster so you have a better chance of escaping a mob chasing you for being ugly! Keeeeeep running!

Tuesday afternoon about 3:30 when the snow started falling more quickly most everybody began heading home. Truckers weren’t making pickups, there was little for me to do, so I decided to have a nice run in the beautiful snowfall.

I have a favorite course from my factory here in Roseto out through the country side to Lake Minsi and back. There was about 2 to 3 inches of snow and it wasn’t a slippery snow, the footing was good. It’s a peaceful route I really enjoy running whenever possible.

I’m headed back to my factory, less than a mile away, and I passing by some homes on a small road. There are kids playing in the snow, they are laughing and have a wonderful time, it pumped me up and made my running feel light and easy, but that didn’t last. Suddenly there is a young lady prancing alongside me. She say’s hello how are you? I responded fine, how are you? She say’s “are you okay?” I say yes to which she responds “do you need help? Now I’m actually feeling pretty dang good, so I said no “I’m fine.” She says, “I can walk you home if you want me to?” My response was “no, I’m fine”!??? So she turned around and for the remainder of my run I felt as though can I REALLY look that BAD! Oh well, next time I will BLAZE by her home!

Groundhog Day Run or Walk
Ready Set Run
February 2nd from 8am – 10am
This event is inspired by the movie Groundhog Day. In the movie, the main character is trapped in a time loop and re-lives the same day over and over again. For this event, we have mapped a 1 mile loop that you can do over and over again. The store will be available if you need to warm up, get a drink or use the bathroom. Unlike the character in the movie, you may exit the loop at any time. You can do 1 loop, 5 loops or 10. Maybe you want to see how many loops you can do in the 2 hour time limit. How many times will you re-live the same route – It’s totally up to you!!! Hot beverages and light refreshments will be provided. Any changes to this event will be posted on Facebook.
