Howdy fellow Striders,

What a summer. It began cold and rainy... then we had more hot

and humid days than I can count. Another week of cold, rainy

weather, and now we’re back to the 90’s. Now that’s a roller coaster

ride.

Likewise, that can happen to our running, and even out lives. We’re

up, fast, swift, fluid, then we’re down, slower, feeling like lead,

struggling to get out the door, and maybe even injured. It is all of

these times that make our running family so great! Who else would

understand how you feel after a race, weather we’re satisfied with

our time, or a bit discouraged. Who is there to understand and help

you along? That’s right, your running club, and friends.

What better club is out there than the Gate City Striders! So many

varied people, all with one thing in common: Running. (Well, and

Beer and icecream are also largely in common too.)

Speaking of running... there’s only one New Hampshire Grand Prix

race left, and while I cannot be there myself, I strongly encourage

everyone else to go and run! You don’t have to be first, you just

have to be! It’d be a shame to lose to our friendly foes, Greater

Derry.

Along the same lines, it is never too early to start thinking about the

Mill Cities Relay! Do I hear Threelaypeat? (Hey, the other word

was copyrighted by Pat Riley, so I think I should now hold the

creative copyright of Threelaypeat.)

I hate to remind us all of the darkness that seems to be coming

earlier and earlier, but be careful out on the roads at night. Keep

visible, and if you wear headphones, keep them low enough to hear

your own footfalls.

Don’t forget Applefest on September 25th!!!

Until next time.... Richie Blake.

Don’t forget to send me your photos and articles for the next issue.

PRESIDENT’S COLUMN BY MICHELLE POUBLON

Dear Striders,

I hope you have all enjoyed a healthy and relaxing

summer. I’ve lived in New England for 20 years,

and this is the best summer I can remember in a

long time! My apologies to anyone with an

outdoor job, or to those of you who can only run

in the middle of the day on your lunch break, but

hasn’t the weather been GREAT?! Hopefully, you

were able to find ways to beat the heat. Maybe

you even had a chance to get away and enjoy a

new trail, a unique road race, or enjoy some other

interesting adventure. (If so, we’d love to hear all

about it in a future newsletter!) I personally spent

a week in Acadia National Park with my familywhat

a gem! It’s an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise,

with hiking, biking and kayaking galore and much

more. If you’ve never been there, I suggest you

check it out!

It was great to see everyone on August 4 th after a

three-week break from the regular coached track

workouts. It was another beautiful evening, which

meant we didn’t have to cancel the ice cream truck

(remember last year when we had to cancel Ice

Cream Night, not just once, but two times?) We

also welcomed back Dave Dunham to the

coaching staff. Joining Dave C, Jim, Richie, Justin,

“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go,

instead, where there is no path and

leave a trail.

—Ralph Waldo Emerson

Keith and Brian for our second session, Dave D

will coach the half marathon/marathon group on

the track. If you are training for a fall half

marathon or marathon, you’ll want to consider

running with this group.

During the break, we had a great turnout at the

Ultimate Runner Night. A huge thanks to all who

helped make this a fun evening, especially Steve

Moland, who timed the races again this year.

Volunteers are the backbone of our club. We have

so many great volunteers, and it’s a good thing,

because we sure have needed you this year! As

I’ve mentioned several times in previous

communications, our programs have been

tremendously successful this year. Fitness

University, which concluded with another

outstanding Finals Day, drew record numbers of

kids at all of the clinics this year. Likewise, the

Summer Trail Race Series saw a significant increase

in average participation. Thanks to all of you who

have stepped up to help manage these increases.

(There were 98 volunteers alone at the Fitness U

Finals Day – incredible!) We have outstanding

leadership for both of these events, which there’s

no doubt in my mind has much to do with how

successful they have become. Leeann and Trevor

Ward did another excellent job as Directors of

Fitness U, as did Michael Wade for the Summer

Trail Series. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Continued from page 4

Our biggest event of the year, the Applefest Half

Marathon and Relay, is just around the corner, and

we are already recruiting volunteers for all sorts of

duties. George LeCours is coordinating the

volunteers this year. If you have not already

committed to helping out, please contact George

to see where he still needs help. Most runners can

appreciate the vast amount of effort that goes into

planning and running any event. The Applefest

Half Marathon repeatedly receives high marks for

putting on a well-organized event- one which

delivers many personal touches that make it a

memorable experience. It’s our volunteers,

including the race committee, who deserve most

of the credit.

There’s plenty of excitement still to come. Besides

Applefest, we have a few more club races left in

our schedule. Please take a look at your calendars

to see if you can help us out at any of these

events. We head into our final race in the NHGP

down 24 points behind Greater Derry. The

Pawtuckaway 5k on October 16 promises to be an

exciting race to see who will end up on top! Will

you be part of the action? In the NEGP there are

two races remaining. The women will compete for

points at the PRMH Classic 5K in Providence on

October 3, and the final race in the series will be

the Baystate Marathon on October 17. Good luck

to everyone and thanks for racing with us!

GCS Icecream Night!

THE REARVIEW MIRROR

A LOOK BACK AT SOME RECENT TRIAD RACING TEAM EVENTS BY MICHAEL WADE

On the weekend of July 17th & 18th, the

GCS-Triad Racing team had a rare

“double-header” weekend. We had 26

runners toe the line at the 43rd Annual Bill Luti

5m in Concord on Saturday. And, another 38 hit

the mean streets of Stowe for the 29th Annual

Stowe 8m in Vermont on Sunday.

The Bill Luti 5m is one of the oldest road races in

New England and a fixture on various local road

race Series’ including: the NHGP, the CARS and

the Summer Swelter Series. Ok, the last one is

made up but it’s completely appropriate because,

as a mid-July race, this one always seems to be unbearably

hot. And, with temps in the upper 80’s

and stifling humidity at the start, this year’s edition

was certainly no exception!

At the Bill Luti 5 miler our fastest Male runner

was Kevin Collins who ran a 29:39 (5:56) and our

fastest Female Runner was Amber Ferreira who ran

a 31:02 (6:13). Amber Ferreira, Tammy Gaffey,

Denis Tranchemontagne, Aline Kenney & Barbara

Robinson each won their NHGP age groups! We

had 21 (of the 26) runners score points for the

club led by Denis & Tammy who each scored 10!

And, the club scored 128 total team points in the

battle to defend our title against that scrappy team

from Greater Derry (who scored 133).

At 29 years (and counting) The Stowe 8m is also

one of the older road races around. And, this year,

the race was being directed by Loco Running out

of Newmarket, NH so that meant we were in store

for some great little perks like: A cross-country

style start with pre-race team introductions, well

organized and evenly spaced water stops, and a

fine post race party including craft-beer and homemade

ice cream.

At the Stowe 8 miler our fastest Male runner was

Rich Smith who ran a 45:47 (5:44) and our fastest

Female Runner was Cathy Merra who ran a 53:41

(6:43). David Herr, Len Hall, Joe Noonan & David

Pember each finished in the top three in their agegroups.

And, Cathy Merra & Milt Schumacher won

their respective age groups outright! Our Womens

Open Team finished 9th, the Open Men finished

7th, the Senior Men finished 6th, the Senior

Women finished 5th, the Masters Men & Masters

Women each finished 4th and the Veteran Men

finished 3rd.

Our next New England Grand Prix race is the

Bridge of Flowers on August 14th. It is another

great New England destination race. Between the

picturesque setting, the live bands along the

course, the cool t-shirt designs and the abundant

prize money. This race is one you definitely don’t

want to miss. And, on top of that, we’ll be doing

our awesome team carpool from Nashua! More

info on Bridge of Flowers (including course map

and driving directions) can be found here:

www.bridgeofflowers10k.com/

Any current club member can run any of the

remaining New England Grand Prix races free of

charge regardless of the number Grand Prix races

you’re able to run. And, the race entry fees will all

be pre-paid by the club so that there are no upfront

costs for you. Just show up and run! It

couldn’t be easier! If you would like to join the

Team for another great GCS-Triad Racing event

please e-mail me right away and let me know.

RACING AHEAD

A LOOK AT SOME UPCOMING TRIAD RACING TEAM EVENTS BY MICHAEL WADE

PRMH 5k - Sunday, Oct 3rd - 10:00am -

Providence, RI

The 3rd Annual Providence Ronald Macdonald

House Classic 5k is the 7 th (out of 8) races in

the 2010 New England Grand Prix series and it is

the second visit the NEGP makes to the Ocean

State (Rhody 5k on June 6 th ). This event is a

Women OnlyRace on a certified, flat and fast

5k course from the Brown University Stadium

through the scenic and historic East Side of

Providence, and finishing in Olympic style on

the Brown University Track.

Other events surrounding the race include Free

Kids’ Races: 9:15 am (100-400 meter dashes on

track, open to boys and girls ages 4-12) and a

Women’s Wellness Fair from 8am - noon on the

grounds of the Brown University Stadium where

you can explore traditional and alternative health

care service, learn about non-profit organizations

providing social services for women and receive

free health screenings

Proceeds for this race go to the McDonald House

of Providencewhich provides programs that

directly improve the health and well-being of

hospitalized children and their families. The

programs allow families to spend additional time

with a sick child, help ease financial burdens,

provide a sense of normalcy and keep families

together during times of medical crisis.

“I’d rather run a gutsy race, pushing all the

way and lose, than run a conservative race

only for a win.” --Alberto Salazar

Pawtuckaway 5k - Saturday, Oct 16th – 10:00

am - Nottingham, NH

The CMN (Pawtuckaway 5k) Run for the Kids

Event was conceived by enthusiastic Wal-Mart

Associates in 2001 volunteering on the CMN

Committee at the Wal-Mart Distribution Center in

Raymond, NH. The management team and the

CMN Committee Associates there, in coordination

with the local Wal-Mart stores whole-heartedly

supported this idea and vision and the event took

off the 1st weekend of August, 2002.

The 5k Road Race starts at the upper part of

Pawtuckaway State Park on State Park Road (A

scenic and challenging road race through the

beautiful Pawtuckaway State Park) and finishes

back just before the starting line on State Park

Road. The Kids Fun Run will begin at 9:00am

and will include fun runs for families and kids of

ages up to 12 years old. Every participant will

receive a ribbon. The individual boy and girl

winner of each race will receive a trophy.

Proceeds from this race will help sponsor the

Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) which is an

International, non-profit Organization dedicated to

helping children and their families by raising funds

and awareness for over 170 non-profit children’s

hospitals through North America.

“There is something about the ritual of the

race-putting on the number, lining up, being

timed-that brings out the best in us.”

-- Grete Waitz

THE MARATHON OF A LIFETIME

THE VIET TRAN STORY BY: GEORGE LECOURS

Longtime running club member, Viet Tran,

recently lost his battle with cancer on

Tuesday, August 24 th . This is a summary

of his extraordinary road through life.

During the last few days of the Viet Nam conflict,

the US allowed a limited number of refugees to

board US ships to come to the USA. Viet Tran, a

helicopter pilot who fought alongside US soldiers,

loaded two helicopters with his countrymen.

Shortly after takeoff they received a radio message

giving them the okay to land on a US aircraft

carrier. During the flight he received word that the

aircraft carrier was too far away to reach with the

limited amount of fuel on board. Viet radioed the

second helicopter to land on an island to get fuel.

They radioed back stating that there was no jet fuel

on that island and continued on.

Viet had a photographic memory and recalled

reading a manual which stated that the helicopter

would run on gasoline, but it would cause the

motor to seize up after one hour of operation; the

aircraft carrier was ½ hour away. Tran landed on

the island, fueled up and flew to and landed on the

aircraft carrier. The other helicopter ran out of

fuel and perished in the ocean.

Like many Vietnamese refugees, Viet was taken in

by other Vietnamese families in Lowell,

Massachusetts. He first had to learn the English

language, and then secure a job. It took one year

to accomplish both. Next, he enrolled in Lowell

Technical Institute, now known as UMass, Lowell.

Somewhere during that time frame, Viet became a

US citizen.

Viet Tran with Ryan LeCours

While in college, he took up the sport of running.

He met his soul mate, Kim and soon afterwards

got married and settled in the Hudson and Nashua

area. Viet made an immediate impact when he

joined the Gate City Striders, demonstrating a well

thought out disciplined training routine. He

volunteered to host long runs from his home.

Viet was a discipline fanatic. He often hosted 5:30

am 10 mile runs from his home. He would scream

at you if you arrived one minute late. “You got to

have discipline”, he would say, as he smiled at you.

His Asian culture came through loud and clear. He

would preach that the American people were

wasteful. He was right. One time, when the GCS

volunteered to work at the Chase Corporate

Challenge in Boston, Viet and Kim helped with the

starting line water. After the start of the race, a

race official from Conventures, came along and

August - September 2010 Striding Along 14


Continued from page 14

told us to open the remaining 20 cases of unused

water and pour the water into the storm drain and

leave the empties there for the trash guys to pick

them up. Viet went nuts. He couldn’t believe we

were going to waste that natural resource. He

quickly went into the underground parking garage

and brought his Honda Civic to the starting line

and loaded it with cases of water. He even had

two cases on the floor in the passenger’s side of

the front seat. Kim had no place for her feet.

While many of us joked about his actions, he was

right. Viet always had spring water at his home

when he hosted runs.

Mike Ward, Viet Tran and George LeCours celebrate

after the 100th Boston Marathon.

Another example of a clash between his culture

and the US culture was when he worked at M.I.T.

Lincoln Labs in Westford. Viet was given a

$10,000,000 government contract to manage. He

reviewed the details of the contract and told his

boss that he could complete the contract for

$8,000,000. He further stated that the $2,000,000

savings could be used to feed needy families. His

boss told him that he had to spend $10,000,000

because it was the amount of the contract. Viet

had trouble understanding that way of thinking.

Viet, against his boss’ direction, completed the

contract requirements spending $8,000,000.

Ultimately that cost him his job at MIT Lincoln

Labs because when it came time for Viet to be

assigned to a new project, they didn’t have one for

him which resulted in him getting laid off.

Several months after

working at MIT,

Lincoln Labs, Viet and

Kim decided to move

to Florida, where the

climate was more in

line with the climate

in Viet Nam.

Viet ran 35 marathons

and two ultra

marathons. Many of

his marathons were Kim and Viet Tran

under the three hour mark. His running career was

similar to his life—he methodically planned and

executed his goals . . . truly remarkable.

Those of us who came in contact with Viet Tran

look back and can say that they knew a special

person. We have taken some of his habits and

cultural beliefs and can honestly say that we are

better people, thanks to him.

Erica’s 5K Run to

Sat. Sat. 09/25/2010 09/25/2010 START LINE - Tennis Courts at Merrimack High School


Race Start Time-8:00 am Entry Fee $20. Day of the Race $25 Family Pricing Available

Participants may pick up race numbers on Friday 09/24 from 6-8pm at

Strikeback Dynamic Defense, 454 DW Highway, Merrimack or on the day of the race at 7am

Enter Raffle for prizes donated by local companies. Monetary donations appreciated

Last September, Erica Pombrio, 23, an attendee of Merrimack High School and the daughter of

local business owner, Lisa Pombrio (Strikeback Dynamic Defense Systems) lost her courageous battle

with cancer. Throughout her fight, she never asked, “Why me?” It was always more painful for her to think

of others suffering with this disease.

Our goal is to create Erica’s Run as an annual event to honor our angel, Erica Nicole Pombrio and

celebrate her life and ALL our loved ones lost to cancer. With each step we take, we hope to help ease the

pain and suffering of a local family affected by cancer by donating the proceeds from this event.

Thanks so much to Michele Poublon for all of her hard work the past 4 years as Food Coordinator. Due

to Michelle’s busy schedule and family committments she has decided to step down as Food Coordinator.

Emily Strong has stepped up to the starting line as her replacement and I am back as her assistant.

Every year we get an unbelievable variety of all sorts of baked goods from our members; hopefully again

this year your generous donations continue. Cookies, brownies, banana breads, etc. are a few suggestions.

Please drop off baked goods at the food tent before 10 am on race morning. Please no fancy packaging or

containers that need to be returned, zip lock bags work the best.

Volunteers are needed to help out in the food tent on race morning. Be part of this great event, there will

be sign-up sheets at the weekly track meets. You can reach Emily by email at estrong2349@yahoo.com or

me at p.kiessel@yahoo.com

Looking forward to seeing you at APPLEFEST 2010.

WAIVER,

I know that running, volunteering at Gate City Strider (the “'club”) races and participating in club events are potentially hazardous activities. I should

not enter, run or participate in club activities unless I am medically able and properly trained. I agree to abide by any decision of a race or club

official relative to my ability to safely complete a run or take part in any event. I assume all risks associated with running and volunteering in club

races and activities including, but not limited to, falls, contact with another person, high heat and/or humidity, the conditions of the road and traffic

on a course, all such risks being known and appreciated by me. Having read this waiver and knowing these facts, and in consideration for the Gate

City Striders accepting my application for membership of a renewal of membership, I, for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and

release the Road Runners Club of America, the Gate City Striders Inc, and all sponsors, their representatives and successors for all claims or

liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation in these club activities even though that liability may arise out of the negligence or carelessness

on the part of a person or entity named in this waiver.(Parent/Guardian must for those under age 18)
