Poetry, music, forests, oceans, solitude-they were what developed enormous spiritual strength. I came to realize that spirit, as much or more than physical conditioning, had to be stored up before a race.
Herb Elliott

I’ve always believed the spirit of a person, man woman or child, needs daily exercise! I find running to be a wonderful way to build my spirit! I find laughter, shouting, and dreaming while running lifts my spirit and gives me a special joy for facing life’s challenges!

06/11 – EVOLVE SPORTS is partnering with the Wallenpaupack community to provide a safe and exciting day of multisport competition. Conveniently located approx 2 hours from Philadelphia and NYC, the Wally Man Tri takes place alongside the well-known Lake Wallenpaupack in the Pocono Mtns, PA. The swim will be an early morning out and back taking off from the only sandy beach on the lake followed by a scenic but challenging bike course that will most definitely test how hard you’ve trained! Finally, explore the other side of the lake during an out and back run for the final leg of this multisport race, which finishes along the township dike and into a wooded trail ending at the awaited finish line. The triathlon is available as an individual, relay, or aqua bike event. Food, beverages, and entertainment will be provided for athletes and their supporters as we believe enthusiastic family and friend support is integral to a superior race experience. Plenty of parking will be available at the nearby high school and a few great vantage points for spectators to observe racers! See YOU on the lake!

Training was a time where resolutions made in the enthusiasm of an inspired moment were put to personal test. – Herb Elliott

T’was the night before the night before Christmas and all through the house was the un-Godly stench of running clothes in bad need of laundering! Actually, in my opinion, they have at least 2 more workouts without laundering left in ‘em! But does Grammie agree…nooooooooo! I think I am addicted to that aroma, it makes me feel so alive! Grammie says it make me smell so DEAD!

Holidays are the VERY best time for training! During the holiday seasons a good training run can easily keep one from punching an annoying relative! That’s right, when somebody gets under your skin instead of drinking yourself blind, go out for a run! And if you return from the run and you still feel like punching the rascal, well… you may need to go back out and run an ultra-distance!

OH GOD I love toys! I wonder what Santa is bringing me this year! Socks and underwear for sure BUT WHAT ELSE!???? I’m trying to find/buy Grammie a new sense of humor for Christmas! She truly needs one, I’m looking for a used one, one that has been thoroughly tested and can stand up to some REAL abuse! Mostly because I’m cheap!

“You start as a runner. You finish as a Boston Marathoner.” Author unknown.

BOSTON PLAY DAY’s – I’ve fielded several questions about the Boston Marathon course training runs with Frank.
Question # 1 – I don’t KNOW Frank, can I still go along. Answer – YES! Frank probably doesn’t know you either!
Question # 2 – I don’t know if I LIKE Frank, can I still go along. Answer – YES! I’m pretty sure he probably doesn’t like you/anybody either!
Question # 3 – Do I have to be NICE to Frank if I want to go. Answer – NO! I’m sure he’s not going to be nice to you!

Dates I’m thinking Jan 14th & Feb 18th. Check your calendars, am I missing some conflict?

While these trips and training is about helping Frank Brown, a gifted runner and loyal friend, be ready for the performance of his life, it is also about y’all!

A couple years back I took another young man to Boston for the marathon weekend to help him prepare for his first Beantown the following year.

When race morning came the weather was dreadful! Rain! Cold! Windy, it was mean out there. We set up at mile 19 to watch the race as it was more convenient to the home we were staying at. It wasn’t long until the young man I was with and about a half dozen of his friends head back to the house we were staying at for shelter. To stay warm I began trotting back and forth from the 19 mile mark to heartbreak hill, all the while intently looking for the members of our community who were running that day.

My glasses were wet and foggy but I had hopes of seeing and cheering for a familiar face! I was not having any good luck, and then from the race course I heard “hey Rod!” There was Tim Arnst smiling! What a joy to see Tim, Tim is a hero of mine! The man runs with passion, he always gives his best, knowing Tim and getting to watch him run is a blessing!

As Tim continued down the course something VERY special happened to me! Maybe it was the rain, the fog, the sentimental joyous feelings I get being in Boston and seeing every runner making their way through history, whatever, there on the road I suddenly saw foot prints! Millions of footprints left by the over 120 years of marathon runners following their passion and love for our sport! I saw Itze’s footprints! Woody Geary’s footprints! The footprints of Don Jewell, Joelle Fair, Bill Carlton, Trish D’Imperio, and the list went on…and on! My HEROS! Each and every elite and casual runner that ever took on the challenge of RUNNING THE BOSTON MARATHON!

And this is where the y’all comes in. Maybe you think you could never qualify!?? I’m here to tell you, YOU CAN! I’m here to tell you I will help you in any I can! Perhaps a day on the course will give you that extra kick in the bee-hind necessary to make it happen. Annnnd if you just need a play day away from home on a cold wintery day come join us on this excursion!

THIS WEEK & WEEKEND
I’m sure there are events happening I just haven’t been doing a good job with this calendar! Let us know the results of any events you may run this weekend! We’re all cheering for YOU!

Meanwhile, my VERY favorite thingy, let’s TRAIN and drink coffee!!!

Mill Rats – training and coffee, coffee and training, as usual! Maybe some ice cream…

YOU ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF THIS COMMUNITY! PLEASE BE CAREFUL, BRIGHT CLOTHES, BRIGHT LIGHTS, AND BRIGHT SMILES!

stuff ‘round the mill
The voice inside your head that says you can’t do this is a liar.” – Unknown

129 days to Boston – 163 days to Run for the Red Marathon

BOSTON PLAY DAY – In the middle of January, most likely on a Saturday, Frank Brown and I will make a one day trip to Boston to get familiar with the start area and the run the first half of the course. The time schedule will be leaving from my home about 5am and I plan to be back home by 8pm. If you’re interested in going along send me an email.

We will be repeating this in the middle of February when Frank will run the second half (probably a little more than 13.1) and get familiar with the finish line area. Again, let me know if you’d like to go and get some running on the Boston course.

06/11 – EVOLVE SPORTS is partnering with the Wallenpaupack community to provide a safe and exciting day of multisport competition. Conveniently located approx 2 hours from Philadelphia and NYC, the Wally Man Tri takes place alongside the well-known Lake Wallenpaupack in the Pocono Mtns, PA. The swim will be an early morning out and back taking off from the only sandy beach on the lake followed by a scenic but challenging bike course that will most definitely test how hard you’ve trained! Finally, explore the other side of the lake during an out and back run for the final leg of this multisport race, which finishes along the township dike and into a wooded trail ending at the awaited finish line. The triathlon is available as an individual, relay, or aqua bike event. Food, beverages, and entertainment will be provided for athletes and their supporters as we believe enthusiastic family and friend support is integral to a superior race experience. Plenty of parking will be available at the nearby high school and a few great vantage points for spectators to observe racers! See YOU on the lake!

“You never really know what’s coming. A small wave, or maybe a big one. All you can really do is hope that when it comes, you can surf over it, instead of drown in its monstrosity.”
- Alysha Speer

This is a pretty good metaphor looking ahead at a marathon training cycle! They never go smoothly!

I just entered the RFR marathon and began thoughts of what and how my training plan is going to shake out. Due to knee issues my base has eroded. Last year I was getting around 50 mpw at this time of year and this year I’m getting about 25 miles per month! OMG do your shoes last long if you can’t run much! This coming cycle is going to be a challenge and I LOVE challenges!

Have y’all signed up yet? With the full, half, the 5K, PLUS volunteering give we ALL have an opportunity to participate!!! Please sign up for something! Let’s do this together!

19 week to Patriots Day/BOSTON MARATHON!
23 to POCONO Run for the Red

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.” — Helen Keller

This is a long video about Elite Ultra Runner Nikki Kimble on a record setting 5 day trail run in Vermont where she broke the female record by 2 days. During the video she speaks briefly of her personal struggle against depression and suicide:

http://www.hokaoneone.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-HOKA-US-Site/default/Blog-Show?postid=top-trails-video-series-9-washington-d-c#.WDtdPI24JvI.gmail

In this interview Nikki continues speaking of her struggles and how switching from a high carb low fat diet to a low carb high fat diet helped her both with running and depression.

http://www.enduranceplanet.com/nikki-kimball-on-depression-a-fat-adapted-diet-and-ultrarunning/

They are both about 1 hour long, I’ve watched and listened to both several times.
