The view from my porch
There is magic in running. I absolutely love to run until I’m so tired I can’t run any farther! I love to see how long it takes me to recover enough to run again!

Following is an interview Lance Armstrong did with Ryan Hall. You will be quite surprised to see the muscular development of 183 lb. Ryan Hall, one of our newest Power Lifters. The interview is over an hour long but it is chocked full of both men’s opinions and attitudes towards running and some cycling! You probably be surprised at how both men feel about running. Sad face here!

58 Days until Boston! Plus 34 until the RED.
KEEP TRAINING! KEEP SMILING!!

Put tons of positive emotion in your running! Run tall, display your pride when running. Be happy! Don’t be mean! Never be mean! Leave any mean in you at home, running doesn’t need mean!

I learned of really great news yesterday, Ernie Roundtree is running Boston this year! This all began with his trip to Special Olympics National Championships last year where his meeting and becoming friends with a Massachusetts police officer became an important occurrence in his life. I don’t know a lot about the whole story but I do know a VERY deserving young man has made a new friend and truly been blessed through this friendship!

I know I speak for all Ernie, we are VERY happy for you and proud of you!!!!
ROCK BOSTON ERNIE!

In addition to Ernie there are 2 other of our runners in Boston I overlooked:
Roundtree, Ernest 35 M East Stroudsburg PA USA
Price, Alex 25 M Bethlehem PA USA
Rusk, Sarah 38 F Wilmington DE USA

Please let me know of anyone I am overlooking!

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!

FROM RSR: www.readysetrunpoconos.com
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.

FROM LVRR: https://lvrr.org
We have so much going on here at LVRR this month. This Sunday we kick off the Superbowl with our annual Superbowl Tailgate Trot 10k. Race day registration is available from 8:15 – 9:00 AM at the clubhouse. Race starts at 9:30.

I don’t know about y’all but I have learned for a fact that past performances don’t insure future results. Train as hard as you can, training with all the components of smart training, is the only sure way to performance improvement!

There is the beginning of a new crew at the mill. We have the east end crew (EEC), the west end crew (WEC), and a sizable and energizing walking crew (WC). The new crew is the cripple crew (CC) started by Mark Kilker with his cane and me with my leg brace. If you care to join us bring whatever type of non-motorized ambulatory device you have and join us. Umbrellas are acceptable for heavy downpours!

I know I’m rushing things a bit but I am already totally excited about the Boston Marathon. Here’s the list of locals and others followed by our local community. If I’m missing someone PLEASE let me know!

I LOVE this weather!

One of the most pleasant experiences I find is seeing other runners! Young and old, fast or slow, there is a communion we runners of all abilities share in. There is so much inspiration seeing other running and working on their fitness. Some pass by with a smile and a friendly greeting while other are deeply involved in their run, or in problem solving and haven’t the time for a greeting. Some we see while others may be towns or continents away. We all are in runner communion. We are one. We should be one.

FROM ELISSA SCHOENING here’s a partial list of her races for 2018.
She also sent a picture of her muddy shoes and socks after she was first woman in a 6 hour race on 1/1/2019. I lost it!
2018:
9 marathons (this includes one timed event that I went 27 miles in, and the back to back Two Rivers)
4 50ks (this includes 6hr events that I went 31 miles or longer on) a few of which I first female
1 50m, which sucked
13 new states, bringing me to 17 states completed.

The view from my porch

Here we are in a new year, whoopee! That’s a sincere whoopee, not sarcasm!

Many think of the New Year as marking “out with the old and in with the new.” I don’t subscribe to that adage. I see life as a continual forward motion, constantly attempting to improve every step of the way.

During this year I will observe 74 years of life, 55 years of marriage, and 27 years of running. I don’t want to cast away one year of life, one year of marriage, or one year of running. I have been blessed!

In running some classify slow easy mileage as junk miles. I’ve NEVER agreed with that thought. When I began running I ramped up my weekly/monthly/yearly mileage fairly quickly. I found myself being the butt of jokes around the mill when we discussed weekly mileage. I started reporting to the guys and gals half the actual miles I was running and I still was running more than most folks, with the exception of Ed Bermudez who at 90+ miles per week was running more mile than me! There were 6 years I ran in excess of 4,000 miles (80 mile per week). Last year due to injuries I ran less than 500 miles. Some say I ran too much, while I don’t think I ran enough.

I don’t believe I am suffering from any injuries caused by my miles. I don’t believe there is such a thing as junk miles. I believe each mile, like each year, like each and every relationship, is a building block to the person we are continually becoming. Each mile we run this year is made possible by the miles we’ve run in the past.

So, I invite y’all to join me as I run every mile I can, for the rest of my life. I plan to run the best I can and as often as I can. Please be sure to get adequate rest! Let’s do it!

HAPPY YEAR 2019 TO Y’ALL!!!

For the New Year I recommend hangin’ with those who see goodness in you. Stay close to those who believe in YOU and your talents! Set out each day with a positive attitude and make your fondest dreams happen!

I see a number of folks noting their total miles for 2018 on FB. Each mile is a blessing. Each mile is a support mile for our 2019 miles. May your 2019 miles be many and joyous!
