Where: Meet at Jud’s Office 510 College Ave (park here) and we’ll do the Church Run (Route Here)
Who: Everyone who can make it.
Why: We are scheduled for rain Thursday so I don’t think the trails will have good footing…and because there is coffee afterward!
Merry Holiday and Happy Christmas to all.*

With all the snow I think the best place to run will be the cemetery run.

Andy is looking for one person to volunteer to do some setup and take-down before and after the event. They need to show up around 6:00 to help. He’s also in need of three people (non-participants) to call out times as runners pass certain markers.
People should respond to Andy ASAP if they are interested. Andy@GuyLloyd.com
Here is the Map

Given that the weather is so lousy and chances of the streets being in running condition tomorrow morning are slim, Carol and I have decided on an alternative plan that will give us just as much exercise.
We are going to meet at 7:00 a.m in the parking lot of Johnson golf course (the club house - MAP HERE) and take a hike around the park for about 1 hour.
This is generally a lot of work and a lot of fun.
We just wanted to offer an alternative given that it does not seem runner friendly for tomorrow.
Let me know if either of you can make it.

...For you and others that are not familiar with this route...we start at Panera, take the sidewalk west on Washington, North on Sunnyslope for 2 blocks, west on Mariner to the paved trails (around a 2 mile loop), then back.
Also can you send the following link to Andy's Jingle Bell Run Team? The deadline to sign up for the team is this week!!!
Here is the route to the trails (Panera #2)
I have been told that the paved trail is about a 2 mile loop. The satellite photos do not show the trails yet so I am unable to map them at this time. Total route would be about 4.9 miles.
Thursday, November 09, 2006
Click the logo for the Team Page or to simply donate to the Arthritis Foundation.
Additionally I thought I’d add a picture of the route the race takes…as you can see we run this route regularly!!
Andy asked that I point out that the DEADLINE IS NOVEMBER 16th, so please sign up if you are interested.
He also wants everyone to know that we can also submit a logo for our shirts (must be Adobe Illustrator .eps file) up to 12” wide x 3” high. If not, it will just be printed with our team name.
Thanks Andy for doing all the leg work on this. If you have any questions e-mail Andy and he will try to answer them for you.

Time: 7:00 AM
Route: Colonial - 5.67 miles
Congratulations to Rich, Kristin Jody and Bill for completing the Marine Corps Marathon and to Steph in completing the 10k.
Was the weather as bad as the prediction? Nothing like running in high winds.
Wednesday, October 25, 2006
Two weeks before the big day, I injured one of my ankles while running. I’m not even sure how it happened, but it was a set-back that I didn’t anticipate. Why now? I had been running all year and didn’t encounter any major problems. Suddenly, with the marathon right around the corner, I get an injury like this? For the most part, I played it safe and kept the running to an absolute minimum. My thinking was that if I gave myself enough time to rest and recover, everything would be fine during the race. By the time the 22nd arrived, my ankle was feeling much better. The marathon was finally here and there was nothing more that I could do besides relax and finish the race.
When I woke-up on the day of the marathon, I was relieved to find out that it wasn’t raining. For the past few days, the weather forecasts had been predicting rain and snow showers with temperatures ranging from the high 30s to low 40s. It was definitely cold and windy that morning, but it was dry. I didn’t even want to think about how miserable it would have been to be cold AND wet as I tried to run 26.2 miles in gusty winds. Things were starting to look-up and my excitement was building.
The race began at 8:00 am, yet I was so far back that it took me 22 minutes to even cross the start line. As everyone began surging forward, my adrenaline really kicked-in. I kept telling myself that I needed to go out slow, but if it wouldn’t have been for all of the other runners in front of me I probably would have taken-off in a full blown sprint. Despite the slow start, I began to make-up time as we snaked through downtown, up through Lincoln Park and Wrigleyville, and back into the Loop. The race was going by much faster than I anticipated. At this point, I began doing some quick calculations in my head. If I continued at the same pace for the rest of the race, I was on track to finish in less than 5 hours. Although I told everyone that my only goal was to just finish the race, I really wanted to prove to myself that I could do it in less than 5 hours. At this point, everything was going as it should and I was a very happy runner.
Around mile 13, I started to have some pain in my ankle but pushed on as I was making good time and didn’t want to slow down. At mile 15, I decided to walk for a few minutes while I ate an energy bar and munched on some Jelly Belly energy beans (I scoped-up several handfuls of these at the Health Expo the day before since they were free!). When I started to run again, the pain in my ankle was so bad that I quickly went back to walking. I continued a jogging/waking routine until I hit mile 16. By this time, the pain was so bad that I couldn’t even jog anymore. I looked around at the crowd and saw someone holding a sign that read, “Pain is temporary. Quitting is forever.” How true. The marathon was already half-over and there was no way I was throwing in the towel at this point, even if it meant I would have to crawl across the finish line.
I continued along at this pace until mile 20. As I limped along, a woman named Sarah came up to me and asked if I was in a lot of pain. Apparently, it was that obvious. Sarah told me that her knee was giving her some problems and she could no longer run. Like me, it was her first race and she was a little disappointed on how things were unfolding but was going to tough it out. Then she did something truly amazing. Instead of continuing at a faster pace, she said that she would walk with me the last 6 miles to ensure that I completed the marathon! I barely even knew this person, but was touched by her support and encouragement. With a renewed sense of resolve, I was determined now more than ever to finish the race.
By the time I turned onto Michigan Avenue to begin the final leg of the race, I only had one thing on my mind: the Hilton Hotel. I knew the hotel was directly across from Grant Park. If I could just see the hotel in the distance it would hopefully give me a much needed push to get to the finish line. Yet, as I looked towards downtown I couldn’t see the hotel! My God, how far away were we! Was this someone’s idea of a cruel joke?
As it turned out, the finish line was not far away at all. That was good as I was in really bad shape by the time I finally got to Grant Park. My ankle was killing me. It was cold and windy. I was exhausted. Sarah was gone as I encouraged her to go ahead and run across the finish line. Did I mention I was exhausted? No one was by me as I turned the corner and began hobbling straight for the finish line. Suddenly all of the spectators were calling-out my name and bib number and were cheering me on all the way to the end. I closed my eyes, took a deep breath, and began running (even though the pain was nearly unbearable at this point). I crossed the line, got my medal, had my chip taken-off of my shoe, and then grabbed a beer and downed it immediately. It was free and by that point I needed a drink badly! Even though I walked the last 10 miles, I still completed the race in 5:42. It wasn’t a complete catastrophe after all!
The marathon is an experience I’ll never forget. Despite all of the hard work and set backs, I still had a blast and that’s really all that matters. With the race behind me, everyone wants to know if I’ll do another one. It’s a hard question for me to answer at the moment. I need some time to recover and reflect on how things went before I commit to another marathon. However, I do want to say that there is no way I would have been able to complete the marathon without the support and encouragement of the entire running group. I only wish it would have been possible to share my joy and agony with everyone! Thanks everyone!

Start 7:00 AM
Colonial Route - 5.7 miles
Colonial loop - 8.3 miles
Colonial to Jud’s house - 11 miles
I know that a few people were going to run really early and I didn’t know if you had thought of a route yet so I created the following route for reference.
Long run - 14.4 miles
If anyone has an idea for a route please send me an e-mail and I’ll post it!
Wednesday, September 13, 2006
Usual start, 7:00 AM (Start Here)
Water? I can have water o my porch as usual. I don’t know where the marathon build group is going, but please remember water. You are getting our mileage up now.
Lighthouse Route – 10.2 miles
Alternative Long Route – 10.26 miles
Jud’s House Loop – 5.47 miles
Tuesday, September 05, 2006
Start: 7:00 AM
I’m in the Teton this weekend so I will miss this run but see you all the following week.
North Bike Trail - 7.21 miles (South to Layard; North to 5 mile; South to 3 mile)
Around the point – 6.37 miles (East on 3 mile around the point to 4 mile West; Bike trail South to 3 mile)
The bike trail appears to be open to 6 mile (the no trespassing sign was removed this weekend) but it is larger gravel than the rest of the trail so proceed with caution if you go further than 5 mile road.
Monday, August 28, 2006
Next Saturday’s Run will be UW Parkside XC Course. (Map here)
Start time: 7:00 AM
The course is particularly good for the marathon build up group because you need only set water out at the around the start line and fill up as you come by on the various loops of the course. This looks like a good week for some running. The prediction is cooler and dryer air.
Here is the 5k route and the 10k route.
I will be running from home to Parkside. Here is my route.
Monday, August 21, 2006
Start at Lakeshore Towers (Map Here).
Here are a few routes:
Zoo Trail – Jud’s house loop 5.5 miles
Tower’s South Route 4.9 miles
Tower’s Loop (via Jud’s house and the Zoo) 10.25 miles
This Saturday we hope to break in the new bike trial to the zoo. This adds to our collection of inaugurations of new sections as the bike trails as the first organized run. We started this a couple of years ago with some winter runs through Island Park.
For the marathon build up group (or any one going by), I will leave water and Gatorade on my side porch. If I forget, knock on the door and ask for some water. The last time I offered this, I forgot the water. I will let Mary know as so she won’t be surprised if I forget and you knock.
Wednesday, August 16, 2006
Meet at the K-Mart parking lot. (MAP HERE)
Usual start time: 7:00 AM although the marathon build up group will doubtlessly start earlier. I have no idea where that group may run so I don’t know where water should be set out. The temp call for a high of 74 w/ scattered t-storms. Even though it will be mild, water is an issue.
M.I.A. these past weeks: Bob O. Jeanne and Terry H.
Standard Culver’s Route
Thursday, August 10, 2006
Last week we decided upon the Cemetery Run because so much of that run is covered by shared. It looks like it will be milder than we thought, but we wil run this location anyway. The marathon build up group can run the bike trial south and we can loop back to the parking lot for water.
Regular start: 7:00 AM
Start Here (MAP)
Cemetery route 5.85 miles
For directions check the blog.
Wednesday, August 02, 2006
Coffee location to be determined.
Since the place is the same (and Runstopable satellite maps are working again) I came up with a few different routes…all but the last one stop by Jud’s house.
Colonial alt route north 5.7 miles
Colonial Loop 8.3 miles
Long Colonial 11 miles
Colonial Route 5.7 miles
Thursday, July 27, 2006
Perfect - if you put water where it usually gets placed that would be great - it is my intention to start at 6:00 - run some miles and then meet back at colonial for another 6 miles if anyone is interested. I am hoping to get 12 miles in this day.
I'll put several water bottles at the top of the hill (I'm not sure where the regularly are placed) before I go to Colonial (at approx 6:45 am) so you might not have them available for your first pass since you are leaving at 6.
Tuesday, July 18, 2006
7:00 AM meet at the parking lot of the old Piggly Wiggly on West Blvd. just north of Washington Ave (MAP HERE.)
This should be a shady run and the parking lot can be the water stops. Those preparing for the Chicago or the MCM can extend the run along the bike path.
I will be in N.C. but I will see you all the following week. I hope we keep the mild weather for the running. This weekend was difficult to say the least.
If someone lets me know what you select for the week after next, I will get the notice out next Tue.
I will try to get a few routes up when I can properly access runstopable.com

Kristin will run early for anyone who wants to run with her. Let her know at email@example.com
Congrats to Jodi and Jarrod on their new son. I think we can let Jodi take next Saturday off.
We should have a little cooler week which is good for those preparing for the CMCM and Chicago marathon.
Tuesday, July 04, 2006
(map here - meeting point/parking lot)
Sad to say, but I think the MCM and Chicago Marathon build up starts this weekend. In fact we are two weeks late to start the Hal Hingdon program. The joy of training in the heat to race in the cold. Actually, I wish I were joining all of you.
Have a safe and happy 4th.
I forgot to mention. Carol says to bring a lawn chair. She has a 30 cup coffee maker and we will just have coffee in the pavilion.
My apology to all. I will NOT be @ the Armstrong Park 7 a.m. run and therefore will not be able to provide coffee. Perhaps someone else has a lg. capacity coffee maker or someone else could pick up mine to us for the a.m. OR maybe it will be an alternative coffee site.
FYI-I will not be sleeping in on Sat. Rather, the Bellweather Communications-Paddle Pullers group will be competing for Dragon Boat bragging rights @ 8:30 a.m. Let's go RALPH, KRISTIN, RICH and ME!!!!!!!! And thanks Mike for your generousity.
See you all next Sat.

Andy Hay (5:25:55) and Liz Logan-Hay (4:15:38) ran the Green Bay Marathon the week before last. Andy had planned on only the half, so I am told, having only run a 10 mile preparation run.
John Becker (2:24:45), Norris Richardson (2:30:24) and daughter Meg (2:30:24) ran a very hot and humid Mad City Half Marathon on Sunday.
Congratulations to all our finishers.

Next Saturday’s run will start from Culver’s on 21st St. just east of Green Bay Road. (LOCATION HERE) The run for the following week (June 3) will be the Panera’s run. I was reminded that Kristin had asked for us to run from Panera’s on June 3.
Time: 7:00 AM
Here is the CULVER’S ROUTE.
Someone please call me and let me know where you select for coffee: 639-2103. I like sleeping in, but be assured I much, much prefer to run.
Next Sunday is the Madison Half Marathon and Marathon (LINK). I think John Becker is planning to run the Half. It is a fun run, if a little hilly that I always enjoy. Most of the run is shaded and the part that isn’t is through the campus. You might want to email John at JABecker@beckerfrench.com if you plan on going so you can share a ride.
I just received an email from the Chicago Marathon. More than 30,000 have registered, so if you are considering that marathon you better get serious about that decision. Chicago Marathon Link

Start at 7:00 AM
With all this rain, you may get your feet wet. When the river is high, the trail just past the bridge is sometimes under water. If you, just turn around and run north to high ground.
It was a hearty bunch last Saturday, but the rain stayed up for the run—mostly.
Keep ChesterLynn in your thought and prayers. We want her back with us as soon.
Have a good week and get out for a run in spite of the rain.

Saturday is the Crazylegs Run in Madison. John Becker plans on going so if interested let him know. I think it’s about 5 miles or so. His address is:
He will go up Friday night if that is the preference.
Remember that the discount fee for the Lighthouse Run ends April 30. The website to get the application is: http://lighthouserun.com/
Bill Folk notched up another marathon in his 50 state marathon quests, completing the Wenatchee Washington Marathon. It looked like a cozy field of fewer than 200.
Wednesday, April 26, 2006
Bill and Steph are back and here is the recap:
Steph and I flew into Seattle on Friday to an overcast rainy day...no surprise for Seattle I guess. We spent the night there and discussed our run with a few of the locals who informed us that Wenatchee happens to be the Apple Capital of the World.
Saturday morning we walked to coffee and admired the Seattle sights before driving through the mountain passes heading for Wenatchee. As we approached the city we saw orchards and orchards of apple trees coming into blossom. The town of Wenatchee is located on the Columbia River and has a population of 60,000 it is very quaint. We stopped by the local sporting goods store to pick up our race packets...Steph's number was 423, which was the date of the race. She's very numbers-oriented and the combination of this 'sign' and the fact that 23 is her lucky number made her even more excited that this was her first race! With the help of the hotel clerk we found a nice Italian restaurant in East Wenatchee where we enjoyed a nice early meal and then got a good night sleep.
Sunday morning was sunny and 44 degrees. We walked from the hotel to the starting line for the 8am start. We then found out that the race wouldn't start until 8:15 (after the kids' run), a little more than 30 min away. We waited patiently making sure that we were in the sun just to stay warm. At 8:15 the group was off.
Steph and I enjoyed a fantastic 6.2 mile run. Steph completed the 10k course in 1:08:19. I think she's got the running bug now. She was elated at finishing the run and I was proud as can be.
My run turned ugly after mile 10. On the East side of the Columbia River the trail we were running on was a bit hillier and the stiff 20 mph headwind really caused me to lose focus and not run as much as I should have for this 5 mile stretch. To make matters worse I would have to do this section twice (loop course)!
With a mile and a half left I met the sweep crew, a one man biking machine who I later found out had done Boston just the week prior. My only concern was finishing with an official time, he assured me that I would definitely make the 6 hour cut off and he would call ahead just to be sure that the finish line did not pack up.
I arrived at the finish line at 5:53:41. Definitely not my best showing but it is official so I have my 5th state in the bag.
Steph and I both had a wonderful time, the views were spectacular with mountains in the background at every turn, and the people were very nice. We would both recommend this race to any one who wants to go to Washington but I would remind you to practice running 5-10% graded hills and into the wind!
Monday, April 17, 2006
Good group last Saturday. 25 were looking for a warm spring run and were not disappointed. Sunny and just the right temperature for running. With the warmer weather we have to start paying attention to water stops. If anyone need water bottles let me know and I will have some with me next Saturday.
Next Saturday, April 22nd: 7:00 AM.
Meet at the Piggly Wiggly parking lot at West Blvd. and Washington Ave (MAP). We will run the bike trail south. I will have Norris put water out at KR and the bike trail which will be about 3 ½ miles out.
Since I don't know how far everyone is going this map takes the bike trail south to 12th Street. The mileage is one way!
May 13th is the Ice Age 50. They are looking for help at a few of the aid stations. Anyone that is willing to help out please e-mail me so that I can forward your name on to my contact person.
Monday, April 10, 2006
Start 7:00 AM.
Take West High Street west off Northwestern Ave. Meet in the parking lot at the bottom on the hill. West High Street is the street south of Sacred Heart School (across from the Unified office). There is a BP service station on the corner.
MAP OF STARTING LOCATION
Colonial Park Route
Well, I guess I really didn’t need to go all the way to Sanabil Island for warm weather. I saw the game time temp. for the Brewers game on Sunday was 60. Weather.com also shows it will be warm all week. Tom and I had a couple of nice runs but had to start early because of the heat. Precursor to summer, I had to walk some.
I hope all of you who ran the South Shore finished and were pleased with your time. That half marathon usually brings on dreadful weather. This yr. I’m in Fla. and the weather looks like it was pretty nice. To guarantee good weather for next year, I’m taking up a collection to send me back down here next year. For far, I haven’t even been able to get Mary to donate.
Is next Sat the Sat. Bill and Steph are in Washington? I can’ remember. If so, best of luck to both on your run.
Tan, rested and ready to run.

Run is the Culver’s run. Meet in the parking lot across from the Timer Warner at 21st St. just east of Highway 31.
Time 7:00 AM
See link here CLICK ME for a map of where we are starting.
Additional notes from Judd:
Some of you asked for a resend of Peter’s travel blog. It is http://www.travelblog.org/Bloggers/pjwyant/
I received an email from him yesterday and he was in Laos. I am a little surprised. It wasn’t on his itinerary and it’s not like him to depart from travel plans. He gets easily lost even when he knows where he is going.
