Need volunteers! Come support your local running community by working an aid
station, working the start/finish, handing out food, handing out water,
taking splits, placing cones, taking in the scenery, placing signs, driving
the pace car, working the start, working the finish chute, and yelling and
screaming like Wellesley Girls for your favorite runner. And remember, it
IS cool to stick around for the entire race! Going home early is very
loser-ly. Contact esandt@... and I�ll get you in touch with the
Larry Gray ran the Atlantic City Marathon over the weekend. Nice job Larry.
See Donald Trump? Actually Larry observed the marathon, and competed with
the table, sorry. Know how to play baccarat?
WHY GO TO ATGLEN?
To run the Covered Bridges 10 Mile Race on saturday. Another 10 mile-rrrr.
Maybe the format is not dead. Though I have not run the race, I�ve run some
of the course and thought it more than better than okay. Check out this
RANDOM mull over stuff
Received a $50 tuition voucher to my alma mater-Rochester Institute of
Technology (not RPI, not RTI, or the U or R;..........RIT). Technically,
this means the $50 application fee is waived to the applicant. Normally I
throw this type of thing out with all the other �You�ve given us 4-5 years
of tuition dollars, why not contribute to our trillion dollar endowment� but
this is actually something that saves the 50 bucks that�s required from
interested applicants. So, if you�ve got a child even thinking about
heading to RIT for the next 4-5 years, I�ll be happy to throw this thing in
the mail to the first person that shouts. Lemme know - esandt@...
I NOW KNOW SOMETHING I DID NOT KNOW
��RSVP = abbreviation for the french "respondez s'il vous plait" which
translated literally means respond (or answer) if you please. I knew 3
years for French in college would be useful some time.�� Thank you Bob from
HALLOWEEN HITS ELM ST
Does this have to do with running? Sure, we�ll be talking all about running
while drinking at 243 Elm Street, Lancaster PA, USA. Don your cap, gown or
any particular costume you care to don and ham it up on Elm St October 27,
6:30 pm. LRRC resident females, Karen Shiley (little, not big, Karen) and
Cyndi (don�t forget the i and the y) Dolgas will be putting on this little
party to celebrate the best holiday of the year, Halloween. Delightful
beverages will be available to everyone that attends. They do request that
attendees bring some semblance of potluck (defined, this means whatever food
is on hand without special buying) food. Everything else will be already
there-won�t have to eat with fingers. Everyone reading this little invite
is invited, even RATS. Come one, come all. Don�t be shy, even if one does
not know anyone, they certainly will on 10/27 in short order. Details?
esandt@... & I�ll get you to the right place/I�ll have my people
talk to your people/blahblahblahblahblah. Oh yeah, please RSVP (what�s this
stand for?-see above.

TUESDAY 10/23 LANDIS VALLEY/COVERED BRIDGES RUN
From Lancaster, take Rt. 272 north to Landis Valley Rd, make left at light,
turn right at Farm Museum, look for runners in very large parking lot.
Run the course that everyone runs. This is truly one of the most well known
courses in the running community. The course truly runs through the old and
new of Lancaster county � from the high rent Hunsicker/Butter road
compounds, and on through the Amish farmland. This is the run that bookends
the �away from Long�s park� fun run season. Come out and enjoy. Check out
the website�s rave run too-http://www.geocities.com/lrrclub/Snakehill.html
BTW: the course has many names including Snake Hill, Covered Bridges, Twin
Bridges, The Northbrook Strider homecourse and probably a fewmore.
THURSDAY 10/18 MT GRETNA Meet at Game Lands Parking Lot on Pinch Road.
Though Mt. Gretna is known for its trails, lots of nice roads are available
to run. Mt. Hope is very close, one could incorporate some of the October
27th 2001 (Mark Your Calendars Now!) Distance Classic Course into a nice
run, or make up a course from the parking lot (Cider Press Road for
starters). Or run the trails. Those apprehensive to trail running will
find Gretna to be a decent introduction-nothing too technical or vertical.
Just watch out for the dog walkers.
EVERY SUNDAY 7:30 AM at the County Park, Lancaster. Park in front of the
pool. Run the course that made Bill Smith even more famous. Run with or
without water crossings as fast or as slow as desired. Reset Bob Bergman�s
6 (or was it 7?) loop record by running 9 loops. Spend the rest of the day
