Hogeye Marathon: Tom Detore, Larry Macon. Maniac Tom shares this race report on his double:
Knoxville a couple of weeks ago I had a bone chip bothering the bottom of my
foot near the ball of my right foot. My Doctor, who is a runner, said "As
a doctor you need to stop running 4-6 weeks; as a runner
do what you have to do." He knew of my ambition to have Lincoln as my 200th marathon and I had only 194 marathons going into this weekend.
At Eisenhower things went well at first, 1:47 half and 2:50 at mile 20. At Mile 16 my foot started to hurt. Then at mile 21 my foot had swollen up. It felt like it would burst right out of my shoe. I loosened the laces as much as I could and did the best that I could. I finished with a 4:10 on a fast course. I was very disappointed and was not sure what to expect from my foot at Hogeye the next day.
At Hogeye I decided to wear my training shoes, which has a larger toe box and more cushioning. Hogeye is a much more difficult course than Eisenhower. Pain set in at mile 11, but it did not get as bad as Eisenhower. My foot swelled up some, but my foot did not feel like it was going to burst out of my shoe as it did the day before. This time at mile 21 I was doing great, then after mile 23 I picked up my pace some and passed about 8 runners the final couple of miles. I finished 1st in my age group by 40 seconds and third place was only about a minute behind me. I felt great.

Boston Marathon: For the past 3-4 years, Tony, Chris and I have made running the Boston Marathon an annual tradition. While our races don't go as well as planned, we never tire of the Boston experience. An added incentive this year was the competition of the Main Maniacs versus the No-Sandbaggers team (aka, the Evil Empire) whom claimed the victor's award last year while we wallowed on our beers and lightened the load in our wallets. We vowed that this was going to be our year. After all, didn't all of you vote for us in the non-scientific poll? But with Chris being injured, lack of training and whether or not he would run, we had to plead on our knees to allow a replacement Maniac to pinch run for Chris. After much debating, we were fortunate to have Annie Thiessen (3:10:44) join the team. And what a remarkable race she would eventually run.
Once again, the three of us volunteered our services (Saturday) at the official merchandise booth, with help from Alicia Britt (3:19:05) and Marc Frommer (3:31:42). The Maniac award for the most Boston Marathon paraphrenalia purchased once again goes to Alicia, whom must lay claim to this award three years running! The next morning, Tony and I encountered a few familiar faces at the Freedom Run, a short 2.6 mile jaunt through sections of historic Boston. Gunhild Swanson (3:44:43), Jack Swanson (4:47:54) and David Jones (3:53:18) were there, and we all took turns taking photos along the run. How I wish all runs could be like this! That afternoon, we returned to the expo where at the Mt. Desert Island Marathon booth stood Gary Allen (2:57:21), proudly publicizing the MDI. One day I will have to tackle this marathon. And of course our annual chat at the New Balance booth with the great Dick Beardsley. Evening at La Famiglia Giorgio, praised for their huge portions and reasonable pricing, was the site of the Maniac pasta feed. And what a gathering it was, with Dale Shoup (3:58:25), Eric Gierke (3:22:49), Ruben Contreras (3:23:22), Laura Bleakley (3:47:41), Don Mukai (4:05:36), new Maniac Amy Yanni (3:46:00), Jack, Gunhild, Alicia, Chris and Steve (with their respective spouses, kids and sister-in-law).
Monday…Patriot's Day. We board the busses (Chris decided to run) for the long trip to Hopkington where a pre-arranged meeting place was setup for the Maniacs at the Athlete's Village. One of our favorite Maniacs Lisa Spence (4:48:41) was there, as well as our first meeting with Ron Knecht (4:07:45). Then came Mark Looi (3:43:09) and Tom Detore (4:23:22). Tony had a chance encounter with the ageless Bob Dolphin (6:38:10). Heading towards 12 noon, we all made our way to the starting corrals. The race (and the Duel) was about to begin. As I headed to corral #2, I noticed a familiar face I first saw at the Pacific Shoreline Marathon. It was Andre Boulais (3:07:51). The gun sounded and we were off. From corral #1, Tony was having a solid race and Chris and Gregg Walchli (3:12:32) ran together for miles. Once again, the heat and the hills played a huge role in my race. One by one, I saw Maniacs passing me left and right. Early on, it was Andre and Ruben. Next came Annie and Alicia. Then Eric and finally Al Harman (3:30:50). For Team Maniacs, the final tally was: Tony Phillippi (3:07:36), Chris Warren (3:21:45) and Steven Yee (3:33:37). The WAVA adjusted times were tabulated, the crowd in a silent hush anticipating the combined results. Soon a roar of approval is heard on Boylston Street…the crowd is on their feet. They give a standing ovation to…Team Main Maniacs!!! And that's even using Chris' time rather than the Annie(mal)'s outstanding effort.
At John Harvard's in Cambridge, another great turn-out to relive race memories and to congratulate the victors in the Duel. Joining us were Spokane Maniacs Barb Bumann (3:59:10) and Chris Marr (3:37:58). Understandably late was Meghan Arbogast (3:03:10), whom just got back from the awards ceremony while receiving a crystal vase for being 8th overall masters.
Other Maniacs who ran the fabled course were Kevin Brosi (4:22:47), Bill Brown (4:09:37), Christine Humble (4:18:20), Larry Macon (5:37:37), Franklin Mason, Keith Panzer (3:56:30), David Reid (4:18:58), Greg Roth (3:59:04), Jack Thornton (3:40:22) and Cathy Troisi (5:20:07). Boston…always an unforgettable experience.

Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon: Marie Bartoletti, Sue Fauerbach, Tom Detore, Philip DeYoung, Deo Jaravata, Steve Monk, Ruben Contreras, Larry Macon and Steven Yee. From the Prez…a plug for one of my favorite marathons. What do you receive for your entry fee? You get a participant's shirt, a small but spirited expo featuring runners from the glory days (Bill Rogers, Frank Shorter and Maniac Dick Beardsley), a lovely, scenic course with friendly volunteers handing out water and Gatorade at more aid stations than I can remember. At the finish, you receive a handsome finisher's medal, a finishers shirt, an abundance of food (even for the 7 hour marathoners) and admission to the not to be missed Oklahoma Memorial Museum, which also served as the starting location for the race. On race day, a cool, crisp morning soon gave way to sunny skies and near perfect running conditions. I met up with Philip and we talked about race strategy…go out at ~7:30 pace for the first couple of miles, pick it up a little to provide some cushion and break the tape by 3:15 so he can achieve a Boston Qualifier. Ruben joined us at the start and soon Steve Monk was in the mix. Always toting a camera, Steve says, "let's take one for the website. The gun sounds…before we hit the first mile marker, I hear a shout, "hey Steve". It was Deo, running a 7-minute mile just to say hi. What a Maniac!
Maintaining a 7:15 pace through the first 10 miles, we cruise comfortably to the scenic Lake Hafner area. Philip decided to back off a little. Not far behind at the only location where runners pass each other was the familiar sight of a yellow singlet, running on cruise control. It was Ruben. Incredible in the fact that he ran Salt Lake City yesterday and was still running strong. At the half-marathon point, I wasn't sure where Philip was, but since I was feeling good, I picked up the pace and caught up to a few runners who were engaging in banter regarding their Ironman finish in Coeur D'Alene last year. After reaching 20 miles, I was feeling strong and maintaining a 7:00-7:10 clip. Running in honor of one of the victims, I was emotionally charged and didn't want to let up. Less than a mile from the finish, one could hear the excitement generated from the crowds. Sprinting in at 3:10:47, I felt a sense of relief and vindication from last week's below par performance at Boston.
Congratulations to Sue (3rd), Steven (3rd) and Tom (5th) for placing in their respective age groups.

Reflections (contributed by Maniac #39 Dave Vent)
I had a big flash of deja vu with Tony, Annie and Rob Hester's two 50Ks in one day. That eclipses my two
marathons in one day by about ten miles. It had some striking similarities in times of day and travel logistics. My
day started with the Mayor's Midnight Sun in Anchorage at 8:00AM Alaska Time (4:21:13). Then flying to
Juneau, getting in a four-seater and flying to Skagway, where I was met by a bush pilot with a VW Rabbit (bad
weather - couldn't fly), then driving the 100 miles to Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, arriving 15 minutes before the
start of the race.
I'd arranged with the race director to start with the half marathon, on their clock, because it began at 10:30PM,
and it was impossible to get there in time for the 9:00PM Yukon Gold Midnight Marathon start. Think of the
course as having the shape of a figure eight lying on it's side. The start was about a half-mile from the juncture
of the two loops, with the half marathon using the loop on the right only. I ran with the half marathoners to that
juncture, they turned right and I turned left to run the remaining 25 1/2 alone and with no aid stations. At about
18 miles the race director found me and gave me water while keeping pace with me. This struck me as amusing
because I was determined to keep my streak alive, of 16 marathons without once stopping or taking a walking
step, so I was pacing myself accordingly. When I glanced down I noticed that he was merely walking sort of

Confessions of a 5km Junkie (by Maniac #103 Sam Thompson)
I hesitate to recount the following tale for reasons twofold; one for the simple fact that I must admit wholeheartedly to running as a bandit in multiple races, the other for having actually participated in races of distances consisting of only 1 digit of kilometers. But alas, I’ll continue nonetheless. On a recent weekend I found myself in Atlanta, Georgia for a wedding (not my own). As I returned to my hotel room following the rehearsal dinner Friday night, I lamented the fact that there were no marathons in this fair town this weekend, despite idyllic weather. Upon returning to my room, I perused the Atlanta Track Club’s race calendar online one last time in a last ditch effort to find something interesting to run over the weekend. But alas, 5k’s were the only thing being served up, though I was quite surprised by the sheer number of 5k’s being held on one day in one city. As I looked a little closer at these 5k’s, their start times, and their exact locations, I began to formulate a plan. I dubbed it “the Atlanta Triple.” Three 5k races sandwiched between some decent mileage sounded like not only a great way to tour the city, but also an excellent opportunity for some feisty speedwork thrown into a long run. So I forged forth on my journey slightly before 7 a.m., leaving my hotel on foot on my way to 5k #1. I ran north on Peachtree Street for about 10 miles to reach the first 5k held at Oglethorpe University. I arrived just in time for the start, with only about 4 minutes to spare, lined up, and we were off. Since I knew this was only the first leg of my journey for the day, I didn’t go out too hard on this one and actually ran a decently smart race (a vast shift from my norm), and finished a conservative 5th overall (though obviously not officially…). I bypassed the finish line (as any good bandit would), ran directly to the car awaiting me, and was off to race #2. Unfortunately race #2 was 9 miles away from race #1, and since the first started at 8a.m. and the second at 9a.m., I was forced to rely on vehicular transport for that leg. Arriving at race #2 just a few moments before 9, I jogged up to the crowd and awaited the start. We continued to wait until about 9:15 until finally the gun went off. Normally I would not care that much about a bit of a late start, but as I had 6 miles to run right after this race to get to my 3rd race at 10a.m., this 15 minute delay posed a serious threat to my plans. Just as I was ready to throw in the towel on this race and hurry on to the 3rd race, the gun went off. The “running smart” phenomenon I experienced at the first race was thrown out the window as my frenzied body shot out of the gates. Amazingly no one ever caught me, and as I came in to the finish line area, the crowd was going crazy. But their glee turned to some form of bitter hatred when I didn’t cross the finish line, shouted as kindly as I could that I wasn’t registered and was not therefore the winner, and kept running off to race #3. Despite the late start, I was still confident I could make it to the 3rd race by 10, but I would have to take a short cut (bad move). Rather than sticking to the main roads on which I couldn’t get lost that I plotted out the night before, I decided I could make up some time by going through a neighborhood. In theory, my shortcut was accurate, but when I popped out of the neighborhood, I wasn’t certain where I was, went the wrong way and tacked on an extra mile or so (time I most definitely did not have to spare). Finally back on roads that I knew and getting very close to the 3rd race at Emory University, I hoped diligently that this race, too, would start 15 minutes late, as that was my only hope at this point. I arrived at 10:14, and alas, this one started on time. But I figured I had come all the way there, so I might as well go ahead and run the course. So off I went, and while I did catch up to quite a few people, this race I most definitely did not win, registered or not. By the end of this 5k, my body gently began to remind me that I had neglected to take in any fluid or food yet for the day, but as I was guilt-ridden enough already for having run the races without registering. I felt I certainly couldn’t partake in any post-race refreshment. So I struck out on the last 8 mile jaunt back to my hotel, with visions of food and water dancing wildly in my head. About halfway back, the sky (despite being blue) suddenly emitted a barrage of hail for a solid 5 minutes or so, but stopped as suddenly as it began, and the weather was again lovely for the remainder of the trek. I made it back to the hotel relatively unscathed, with a newfound familiarity with the city of Atlanta, and in completing my Atlanta Triple, I ended up with a grand total of approximately 35 miles, including 15k of races. I even made it to the wedding on time, though I must admit I was none too polite in my voracious devouring of food at the reception.
New Members for the Month of April
4/05 - Ron Knecht (Sunriver, Oregon): Here is a synopsis of Ron's marathoning history: Please let me join this group of marathon addicts. I hope I qualify. A week after my 60th birthday (in 2003), I ran my first marathon (Newport, OR) and qualified for Boston (by mere seconds at 3:59:14). Then I ran Portland and Tucson (under last name Knight) for a total of 3 marathons in 2003.
In 2004 I ran 10 marathons
in 10 states (all under Knecht). Those states were AZ (Lost Dutchman), TX
(Motorola Austin), LA (Mardi Gras New Orleans) - two weeks after Austin, VA
(Shamrock), MA (Boston), OH (Flying Pig) - two weeks after Boston, MI
(Bayshore), MN (Grandma's), UT (St George), and CA (Santa Clarita).
So far in 2005 I have finished NV (Las Vegas), CA (again)(Napa), and WA (YRCM - where I saw a strong contingent of Maniacs). The rest of my schedule this year includes Boston (again - moved up 800 places after 3:50 at LVIM), Newport OR again, Sunriver (my summer home and legal residence), SF CA, Crater Lake OR, Ashton ID, Billings MT, Durango CO, and Las Cruces NM. Although I haven't registered for the last three yet, you can tell that I like to commit as soon as possible: only one other person registered before I did at YRCM. Bob Dolphin (the race director) had bib number 1; I was number 3. To recap, I have finished 16 marathons in 13 states in less that 2 years - all run after age 60. By the time I turn 62 in May and start collecting Social Security, I will have a couple more - Boston and Newport.
4/05 - Cheri Gross (San Antonio, Texas): In 2002, Cheri completed the ultra-tough criteria of running marathons in 26 states in one calendar year, thus becoming our first 8-star (Platinum) female Maniac. In just 4+ years of running marathons, she has already completed the 50-states and D.C. circuit.
4/08 - Cathy West (Wilmington, Delaware): The first "Delawarian" Maniac, Cathy has run a total of 35 marathons (in 25 states and DC), with a best streak of 3 marathons in 3 weeks. During April/May, she will be shooting for 5 marathons in 6 weeks and plans on running 23 marathons this year!
4/14 - Rob Willis (Tacoma, Washington): Rob has this habit of not repeating states, as all 8 of his marathons have been run in different states. His best streak is 2 in 2 days, thus being initiated as an Iridium Maniac.
4/20 - Andrew Moore (Ambler, Pennsylvania): Like Rob, Andrew seems to find a different state to run in with each successive marathon (7 total) and is currently working on a streak of 3 in 3 months.
4/20 - Alex Juchems (Auburn, Washington): Alex really went gung-ho to get initiated into Maniacdom. He recently finished 3 marathons in 3 states within 8 days, thus receiving Ruthenium (5-star) status. Alex has 9 marathons under his belt and looking forward to carrying the Maniac colors.
4/30 - Charles Sayles (Glendale, California): Like some of the recently inducted Maniacs who don't want to start from rock bottom, Charles had completed 21 marathons and 20 states in one year, thus qualifying him for 7-star Palladium level. He has run 6 races this year and has completed 42 marathons/ultras.
