JAN ‐ APR 2010 NEWSLETTER

Hello Maniacs!

Volume 7, Number 1

My name is Steve Walters (aka Marathon Freak) from Portland,

Oregon, I’m Maniac #338. I’ve volunteered to take over the

duties of putting together the newsletter. Our president has

done a great job with the newsletter for so many years, but he

has fallen behind this year (and has asked for help). Since there

has not been a newsletter since December of last year, I’ve decided to put together one

newsletter for the first four months of this year. I’ve Ivepicked picked some of the big highlight

races from the first third of this year. I’ve collected as many pictures as I could and

hope you enjoy this newsletter.

Going forward, I have redesigned the newsletter with the hopes of making it even more

friendly and interesting. I will be adding some new features in the future and hope that

all will enjoy the this newsletter.

Our club has grown in amazing ways over the past few years years, and while this club began

in the northwest about seven years ago, we now have members all over the country

(and world). I hope that this newsletter will reflect the diverse nature of our club. If

you live in the southwest, northeast, southwest, midwest, great lakes, rocky mountains,

or anywhere else I need your help. Please send me your pictures and race reports

(please keep your race reports to about 150 words). Because without your help this

newsletter will not reflect the true nature of our club. I hope some of you will help me

in making this a special piece of the club.

Enjoy this recap and I wish all of you the best of luck in your upcoming adventures in

marathoning!

Thanks,

Steve “Marathon Freak” Walters MM#338

“Walking Diva” #638

Thank you all for your submissions to the Marathon Maniac newsletter for the past few years. I really have

enjoyed collating and putting all of your photos into the monthly newsletter but its gotten way time

consuming and I need to focus my attention on other Maniac matters. The club has gotten so large that I

cannot devote 100% effort into it anymore. It's still mainly the 3 wise men administering the club with the

help of gracious volunteers (Marc Frommer, Brian Pendleton, Robert Lopez) providing much needed

assistance. Now with Steve "Marathon Freak" Walters taking over the duties as Maniac Newsletter editor,

rest assured that he will do a top‐notch top notch job in putting together a high quality newsletter newsletter. We all like the

changes that he has made and has definitely 'spiced" up the newsletter in a more readable and enjoyable

format. To all whom have submitted me information and photos for the Jan ‐ April 2010 period...I promise

that they will be highlighted in the June newsletter. My sincere apologies but this change is most truly

welcomed, especially be me and the other two founders.

AND FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO TURN IN THEIR PHOTOS AT A LATER TIME

(I will ALWAYS accept your photos!!!) – 26freak@gmail.com

‐ Prez Steve Yee

Rhetorical Revelations and W(Rites)…from the Rambunctious Rev

Dear Mr. umm, Mr. President,

After much discussion on the bulletin board at the turn of the year, folks started a new strain of “Thanks, Prez” comments, to

you, Hollywood, and Mr. Phillippi, for all of your hard work starting and maintaining this club. Yes indeedy, much thanks, they

said.

And it has become become, clearly voluminous work work, and it is good that you are welcoming some help to get it all done done. For that that, I’ll Ill

grant you the accolade, “good thinking.”

But as for congratulating you for creating this club, for gathering together these people, so to encourage this 26.2 miles stuff

on a REGULAR basis…I’m not so sure. Oh, you have changed my life, there, Buddy, but really, I need to consider whether or not

thanking you for that is exactly the sentiment. Let me be straight with you.

Ahem.

Listen, Buster, I was a VERY contented golfer once upon a time. Very contented. And, it is true, outside of participating in my

real love of golf, I did earn substantial congratulations from folks when I first ran TWO marathons inside two weekends in 2003.

Briefly Briefly, I thought I was on the top of the world world, estimated I’d Idoccasionally occasionally run another marathon marathon, you know know, once in a while while.

And then I met? The three wise men. Wise men? You inspired me to change. Well, now look at me! I’m a skill‐less, plodding

lump of a “runner,” (yeah, right, “runner”), but I can’t stop trying! I can’t stop signing up for another 26.2 miles of “fun”! Hoo

boy. Ice baths and ibuprofen for all! And yet, man!, I can’t even log into my computer without re‐checking the marathon

calendars for some upcoming run I haven’t seen yet. This is rather like being on death row and shopping for a prison that has a

shorter line.

Who do I have to thank for this? Hopalong Yee and The Two Booster Rockets. I, of modest means, now have: 12 old pairs of

running shoes under the bed (we’re told that even though they look fine, at 400 miles they are no good anymore); a closet

sagging i with ith 63 llong sleeve l shirts hi t all ll “f “fashionably” hi bl ” mangled ldbby advertising; d ti i andd a bbox off multi‐flavored lti fl d ttoothpaste‐like th t lik packets kt

unsuitable for brushing.

I live dreading not drinking enough water to stay properly hydrated, while simultaneously having a nightmarish fear of dying

from drinking too much water. I shouldn’t eat salty foods (you know, ones that taste good) but should swallow these white

tablets to replace my salt!

And all of this while I get to meet smiley people who insist that I am the one who is nuts if I don't see the wonderful glorious

fun in, well, shall we review? (Each of the following I did not make up. Really.)

"it is only natural to run 26.2 miles of city streets in your bare feet"

or, at a Saturday marathon, at which I have struggled mightily to complete, and am proud – though nearly hospitalized ‐‐ to have

done so, I’m peppered with, "so, Rev, which marathon are you running tomorrow?"

or, "you've run 17 states? That's Great! I've run all 50...4 times..., and my buddy over here does all fifty every year. When are you

planning on Iowa?"

or, one of my all‐time favorites, "Ultras are easier than marathons."

or, "yes, running up Pike's Peak is a great fun (???), but coming down is harder.” (excuse me?)

or, "You simply must go on vacation to do the Bataan Death march through the desert."

or, "Well, I broke a bone in my foot at mile 3, so I took it easy and paced a friend through the last 47 miles... ."

Maybe it is time to launch a new "club" myself:

"Rev's Rehabilitation Center for MarathonManaicism." This 25‐week‐long program, no patch or gum involved, will be simple:

we will have, on consecutive week‐ends, organized runs of 25, then 24, then 23 miles, etc., one each week until we'll be able on

week 25 to jog one mile...and… Stop!

No Gatorade even. And we can show up at work on Monday walking without a limp! Fluidly!

Someday folks, you’ll thank me.

Meanwhile, anybody seen this new marathon in Wyomissing, Pa. on June 13 th ? It looks pretty cool…

Aw, I guess I still love ya, Yee.
