1 Hour Run (Welch Pool)

There was a small turnout for our breezy and chilly workout this evening.  Newcomer Alex was getting tired of running alone, so she decided to come out and join us.  Welcome to the group Alex! We had Pam Scott, Sarah Reinhard, Dave DeGroote, Alex (?) and Denise Weaver. The plan was to run for an hour, but since the Mountainback is just around the corner Denise and the group decided to run 4 miles.  The group ran out on the bike path to Prospector's and back. Dave cut out on us after the first mile :)  He needed to take it easy due to the fact that he is running the Tussey Mountainback as a ultra runner. Good Luck Dave!  Next week will be 1/4 relays from the Waffle Shop (W. College Ave.).  And also a reminder the NVRC will be having their bi-monthly club meeting beginning at 6:30 pm at the Hi-Way Pizza on Westerly Parkway.  All are encouraged to come eat some pizza and maybe drink a little beer.  We ask that everyone puts in a few bucks towards the pizza.  See you all next week!

Missed The Rain!

This week Jerry was off busy with the State College cross country team, so Denise Weaver took charge of our workout.  Runners met at the Circleville Farm.  Jerry was kind enough to drive up the trail and do a burn out so we'd know where our turnaround was.  We had 5 runners last night Sarah Reinhard, Jessica Savrock, Janice Dauber, newcomer Elena Enache-Pommer and Denise Weaver.  We ran up the trail which was suppose to be a mile, but was only half a mile and back to the parking lot, so the girls decided to head another direction on the bike path towards Blue Course Dr. out on Teaberry heading towards the golf course, but we just looped and headed back out Teaberry to the direction that we came from.  Luckily we missed out on the bad thunderstorm that came thru the area earlier.  Our total mileage was 4 miles and I want to mention on the way back that we spotted a certain someone in his red pickup truck (Jerry) who didn't see us waving to him at the traffic light on the intersection of  Blue Course /Circleville Rd.  Everyone did a super job running last night!  See you next week.

Penn State Track Relays

We had 8 teams last night at the Penn State track.  We did 2 person relay ladder's of 200, 400, 600, 800, 600, 400, 200.   Dave DeGroote and Kate Ryan came in first with 25:55 (Kate came back to run with us again).  Mike Weismiller and Michell Swopes were second with 26:45 (this was Michell's first time with us and we hope she will be back next week).  Eric Fillerup and Jana Emmer were next with 27:15 (Jana has been with us for two or three weeks - nice to have her with us).  Lori Miles and Beth Pfahl came next with 27: 54 - they won the last two weeks but not this.  Michelle Christtensen and Jessica Wekke finished next with 29:00.  Jessica is back with us - it's great to have her back.  Janice Druber, Pam Scott and Jerry steffy ran as a team - Pam was working on coming back and Jerry jumped in to get a couple laps in - they ran 30:25.  Jan Greenland and Denise Weaver ran very well and finished seventh with 32:15 (it was the first time for Jan last night).  We also had two more new runners last night, Smitha Shetty and Satashu Goel and we didn't scare them off we hope.  They ran the whole work out and finished well for first timers at 36:40.  We had a great time, the warm sunny weather helped.  Next week we are at the PSU track, but not for a track work out - we are doing our annual creamery run.  So bring a little money for some Ice Cream after the work out.  This is the Fox and Hound run.  See you next week Jerry

Poker at Sunset

We had 11 runners for the 3rd annual Poker run.  We had some very bad hands this year.  Half of the hands were nothing but high cards the other half were pairs with a high card.  The winner was two pairs Ace's and Kings, Eric Fillerup had that hand.  Liz Compo had a pair of ace's, Lorna Arocena had a pair of two's with King high, Jessica Saurock had a pair of twos with ace high, Paul Ruby a pair of Queen's, Marta Halzell, Denise Weaver, Michelle Christensen, Joanna Kozel, Janice Dawber, were the other runners who only had high cards to win with. Jerry Steffy was there to make sure that no one dealt from the bottom of the deck. The 5 laps around Sunset Park was an easy run, and no one got hurt.  Next week we are at Spring Creek Park for more Indians. We are meeting at the Houserville entrance. see you next week. Jerry

1/4 Relay's on the Track

We had 10 runners showed up last night even with the threat of rain to do 2 person relay 1/4's. Pam Scott was with us to help time. Janice Dawber/Mike Weismiller with a 9:39 for 1 1/2 mile, Lori Miles/Beth Pfahl with 9:35 for first place, Jerry Steffy/Marta Hatzell was a close second with 9:37, Michelle Christensen/Liz Compo was Fourth with 10:38, and Denise Weaver/Sharon Lester-fry fifth with11:23. We had a great time, we had to run fast because the Nittney valley youth track club was having a meet. This week Lori would not let anyone get close to her so no one could cut her off. Next week we will be at PSU track doing short latters 200,400,600,800, and back down. See you next week Jerry.
