L is for liver. mine,
yours, ours...the boston marathon is for drinkers! so much so they
peppered the course with imbiber cheerleaders. seemingly every other shirt in
front of me said "go liver". oh yes! i am serious.
granted, there was not a drop of alchohol offered me until the 20k mark where
some mindful soul handed me a pink plastic cup of beer. timely
just steps ahead. i am just hoping one of those "go liver" people were in the shot. either one of them, or that infamous dana farber. D is for dana. i never did figure out if that girl were ahead, beside, or behind me. the boston marathon is about giving.
ATHLETES VILLAGE: got teary eyed when john kelly sang. a pair of boston marathon gloves from some guy that appreciated my watching his place. a free race photo from hewlett packard.
THE COURSE: orange slices every few steps.
cold water from the spectators every few steps.
10 sponge baths.
a hot dog.
4 sticks of vaseline.
a hit of columbian. gotta love boston college.
eddy's real fruit popsicle.
a can of sierra mist soda.
a tangerine flavored power gel.
a boston marathon mylar wrap.
a tan (85 degrees).
THE FINISH: a pinch. walking to the hyatt regency shuttle some loser grabbed my ass. whereupon i threw my finish bag and medal to the ground and screamed in his face. !#&!!!! i think he is afraid of runners from this day forward.
THE SIGHTS: a transvestite in blonde wig and a pink flounced dress holding a water hose. a runner with "HUNG" on his back. a sign at wellesley "A GIRL LIKES A MAN WITH ENDURANCE. KEEP IT UP!"
to all of us with endurance. keep it up. see you in 6 days at the jersey shore marathon. one down. four to go.

The sun finally came out at this Year's Jersey Shore Relay after several rainy years. A record crowd of nearly 240 teams participated in the race representing over 1200 runners and they were treated to a nice tail wind which resulted in some pretty fast times at the Jersey Shore. The overall winning team in a record time of 2:22:22 was the MacGowan Agency Men who covered the 26.2 mile course in a record setting 2 hours 22 minutes and 22 seconds. The top women, team was the MacGowan Agency Women in a time of 3:03:45 and the top men's team was the Wall Street Brokers who finished in a time of 2:333:14. The Wall Street Brokers were last years winners then known as the "Hippies". Thanks to all the participants, volunteers and sponsors who made for a very memorable event to benefit Special Olympics.
As usual and for the 13th Year the JSRC will be assisting with the Special Olympics Track and Field Meet this year to be held on May 8th at Toms River South High School.. The event is always very rewarding so come on out. Volunteers will need to be at the High School by 9 AM to check in and help with set up. Send your interest to email@example.com as we need to make sure we have sufficient volunteers.
The High School is located in downtown Toms River on Hyers Street which is just off of Main Street- click here to get a map.

Atlantic Herald Story
Race Director Phil Hinck had been promising a sunny day for the JSRC's Annual Sgt Pat's Race and there could not have been a better day for a race. Nearly 600 runners were treated to a fast flat course along the Atlantic Ocean. The course had to be adjusted to accommodate construction but it proved to be a very interesting one for the runners and spectators who saw the runners pass them on their return to the finish. The overall winner was Jesus Resendiz ( number 380 above) of Perth Amboy in a time of 15:49 and for the women it was Amanda Cavallo (number 54 above) of Bayville in a time of 18:25. There were as usual a large number of overall and age group awards as well as random prizes to include a grand prize of a bike. Many of the participants then proceeded to the Celtic Cottage for a buffet lunch outdoors in the courtyard.
The Race Benefited the Sgt Patrick King Scholarship fund which awards scholarships to students in the memory of the slain Long Branch Police Officer, Patrick King.
Among the Club finishers were: Marti Rettino 22:51(PR); Frank Pelcher 24:28; Mike Bair 17:38(PR); Joe Mirachi 24:56; Jim Robbins 32:20; Diane Cheer 28:05; Jack Cheer 20:59; Mindy Brady 30:06; Bob Gileski 24:15; Eileen Murphy 31:35; Matt Shafer 21:25; Jennifer Gunn 20:20; Sutah Robons 23:04; Randi Cohen 27:10; Guy Ryan 23:24; Pat Cavanaugh 20:32; Kathy Rand 26:18; Mike Badger 18:20; Greg Duffy 20:20; Emery Messenger 25:14; Scott Donnigan 24:33

South Belmar Mayor Lawrence Chiaravallo has vetoed a resolution by the Borough Council to restrict Road Races in the Borough. Citing the numerous charitable organizations who benefit from the races he indicted in a recent letter to a local newspaper, "I am embarrassed as the mayor of this town to tell these fine organizations that an ordinance passed by this council will now prohibit them from raising funds for medical research because a certain few who have not supported their objections to my satisfaction."
The Borough Council can still over ride the veto - stay tuned.

i blew off the more marathon last weekend in central park because brunch sounded
better sunday morning than a drive up to run 5 loops in the park. boring.
in hindsight, i regretted blowing off my 2004 goal of a marathon a month for
crablegs and mimosas. so i scrambled to find one for this past
weekend.drove down the night prior and grabbed a room in wildwood. in the
morning i drove to the finish, shuttled to the start. while waiting for
the shuttle to fill i some guy talked me into joining the 50 states club. then
want to do the continents.
start... wow, uncle bills pancake house! right on the start line. hot
coffee, eggs, bacon and PANCAKES! i love cake.
i grabbed a paper from the host hotel and shivered over to uncle bill's.
standing at the door was the manager... telling runners to move along unless
they were coming in to eat. big sign on the door: "bathrooms
for patrons only" jesus, welcome to the jersey shore, huh,
uncle bill? pushed my boobage past the patrol and hopped up on a counter
stool. spread out the paper, ordered my PANCAKES ( i love cake) and
became privy to an hour of staff complaints about runners. i almost said
something when i heard a waitress say "they'll be gone by 9."
instead, i took the attitude to change one mind at a time and left a
$20 tip and a smile. we certainly know now why that is the race start.
windy. windy. did
i mention it was WINDY?
instead of my
usual song "smokin" by boston, the song for this race was
definately "blowin in the wind" by bob dylan. i
don't have a clue what the m.p.h. was but i did not apply blush when i went out
dancing later. loved
running over the bridges, just because i liked the volunteers pushing us towards
the middle so we wouldn't blow over the railings to the frigid waters below.
long ass straight run through
the tightly packed summer homes. i mean, you could literally share
a cup of coffee with your neighbor by leaning out your kitchen
window. did i say coffee, i meant kiss. anyone spending the
summer that close to one another has just got to enjoy intimacy. the
finish...pet peeve: a 25 year old man racing me through the chute.
especially when i encouraged him twice over the last few miles. arrggghh.
alas, this too shall blow over.
sutah on the jersey shore.

ORN: 1 mile. too windy. went shopping. i already did a wind run this week.
