The Marathon Maniacs…at the Races
Guldensporen Marathon: Kurt Lauer
Foot Traffic Flat Marathon: Minh Dang, Pete "Hippo" Nicholson, Van "Pigtails" Phan, Cheri Pompeo, Sam Thompson, CJ "Hollywood" Warren
Chuck Engle won his 15th marathon of 2006 (in 27 outings), completing the Foot Traffic Flat Marathon in 2:32:28. Taking second place, and finishing as first woman was Wendy Terris in a PR of 2:44:30. Unconfirmed reports tell us that Terris arrived at the Foot Traffic Flat Marathon looking for the overall win and seeing Engle at the start walked to him and said disappointedly, "oh, you're here..." Terris was second woman at the 2005 Portland Marathon in addition to many other running exploits. Eugenio Vidales was second man, third overall in 2:47:12; while Gregg Walchli was third man and fourth overall in 2:52:35.

Seafair Marathon: "mph" is still on a roll…from
marathonguide.com: In the women's division, Trisha Steidl, took first place in
2:59:52. Kristin Veal of Seattle WA finished second in 3:10:21. Mary Hanna of Maple Valley WA, who
finished third in the 2005 Seafair Marathon, repeated her third place finish in
The weekend began with a flourish with the arrival of the "Rev" for his first-ever visit to the Pacific Northwest. His duties included but not limited to 1) running a marathon, to once again re-enact those famous last words "a marathon requires pacing, a marriage takes patience", meet up with old Maniac friends that he'd seen during the past few years and to enjoy the magnificent scenery that the great state of Washington had to offer, though he'll tell you, not necessarily in that order. On Saturday, friends, family and Maniacs Christel Elliot, Bill Barmore, Alex Juchems, Bob and Lenore Dolphin, Rob Willis, John Kokes, Sue Fauerbach and the Prez were present at the humble abode of Meridith and J. Ellis for the Tampa Marathon post celebration, version 2.
The wedding party: John Kokes, J and Meredith Ellis, Shelby and the "Rev" Rob Willis and Family
After performing his "Maniac functions" the Rev got to "relax" Sunday morning by running in the "hillier than thou" Seafair Marathon. They don't have these kinds of hills in Pennsylvania! So after meeting most of the 40+ maniacs whom were present in Bellevue that morning, the Rev was again the "star attraction" back at Meridith and J's place for a backyard barbeque for all Maniacs. But he saved the best for last. On Monday morning, he "prayed" that the skies would open up so he could finally see his beloved Mt. Rainer close-up. His report…he got as close to "Heaven on Earth" by the "Grace of God" parting the clouds a mile high as he strolled majestic trails at the Sunrise area and capped off his day with a much-awaited dinner with Maniac legend Annie Thiessen and her husband Phil. I'm sure on his way back to Philadelphia he was singing…"the Bluest skies you've ever seen are in Seattle"!

A message from Race Director Tony (*tc) Covarrubias
The Auburn MountainView Cross Country Team would like to thank all of those who came out to support this event. The main use of the money we made will go towards sending the kids to cross country camp this summer. This will allow some who might not otherwise have been able to go to join in on the team building and unique training experience they will gain on the trails of Cle Elum.
A huge thank you to the Marathon Maniacs (Steve, Chris, and Tony) for providing water and Gatorade for the event! We drank almost all of it ... after Friday's temps, I wasn't sure the water was going to hold out. But the morning cloud cover provided the sun block we needed.
Also, thanks to Paul Morrison for donating water bottles and race numbers for the event. Paul also joined us for a couple of laps around the lake.
Nathan Greene, running in only his 2nd ultra, decided he would attempt to run 4 loops. Well, Nathan got the best of the heat and did in fact complete the 4 loops for a total of 38.4 miles on the day. That was a great accomplishment with the weather we had. The sun was out for quite a bit of his last loop so he definitely showed the perseverance of an ultra runner. I'm looking forward, as I know many of you are, to seeing him at future races.
Van "Pigtails" Phan wasn't sure what she wanted to run so she opted to leave a bit early, find someone and turn back, and start all over again; do a couple of loops; turn around with me; and finally ran her 3rd "complete" loop. Our best estimate is 35 miles but was probably more (who's counting). I wanted to mention as Van did in her report that this was her 30th marathon of the year. She did her 31st (a road marathon) the next day in 90+ degree heat.
Most ran 3 loops (28.8 miles) - 16 runners
There were a lot of first time ultras completed this day lead by Rich "I may only run 2 laps" Nelly, and included Cliff Richards, SR Lopez, I believe Val Beyer and others. Rich, not having had ultra experience, thought these were supposed to be run fast and took a commanding lead from the start and held on to finish. Rich completed the 3 loops in a very fast time of 3:41. Gayle Zorrilla followed posting another fast time of 4:08 - extremely impressive considering the heat. Joseph Tompkins rounded out the top 3 with a time of 4:19. A total of 16 runners ran the 3 loop option.

Gateway to the Pacific Marathon: Barefoot Jon, Barefoot Todd, Jim Boyd, Dave Bridgeman, Christina Bruce, Tim Bruce, Dave Conger, Jason Gordon, David Jones, Robert "srlopez" Lopez, Larry Macon, Cheri Pompeo, Bruce Quam. A few Maniacs in the top three, as summarized in marathonguide.com:
In spite of oppressive heat in the 90s and a marathon course
reported to be long, Chuck Engle
added one more win to his streak at the Gateway to the Pacific Marathon,
finishing in first place in 2:54:54 - a repeat of his 2003 win at the same race
and Engle's 17th win in 30 marathons in 2006. Kevin Prentiss, 43 of Edmonds
Washington, finished second in 3:14:58. Last year's winner Gregg Walchli, 44 of Seattle WA, finished in third place in
3:19:17. In the women's race, Van Phan,
35 of Maple Valley WA and past winner of the Green River Marathon, finished
first in 3:46:53. Jo Zucker, 43 of Bend Oregon, took second place in 3:51:20. Janice Moyer, 40 of Wellpint WA, eighth
female finisher in 2005, improved her placement this year finishing in third
place in 4:58:38.

Biography and Aspirations from our youngest Maniac…14 year old Christina Bruce
Christina was born in Monterey Park, California and lived in Montclair, Ca until the summer after 4th grade (2001) when she moved to Sequim with her dad and older sister (Jennifer). The first five years of her life were spent in and out of hospitals (primarily Loma Linda U.) due to immune disorders and other very serious health problems. But she has not had any significant difficulties since age 5.
Christina Bruce…with her fan club!
She will be a sophmore at Sequim High School this Sept. She competes in Cross Country and Track. The girls' XC team finished 7th in State last year at 3A level and look to do better this year on 2A. She still holds at least 2 middle school cross country course records on the Olympic Peninsula. Her room is full of trophies, placques and ribbons. Her pets are a Husky and a tarantula. She is an Honor Roll student on a college prep track. Her goal is to become a sports/health psychologist and earn her PhD. She is involved in her church youth group and helps with weekly worship services at local nursing homes.
Her goal is to keep getting better at running distances (she does not like short races) and wants to continue running many years. She wants to run with her kids and me twenty-five years from now. Her dream is to some day run in the Olympic Marathon. She is well aware that many women distance runners start peaking at later ages so she is usually OK with not pushing herself or beating herself up around her "times".
The hardest thing to do with her is to keep her from running
constantly or an extreme number of miles. At the present time, we run alot on
trails (off pavement) and do cross training (cycling and machines) to protect
her legs. We also weight train to build bone density. Injury prevention is key!
And she loves running in her singlet because people ask about the Marathon Maniacs!
If you find a discrepancy or are missing any information that should be in the scorecard (number of marathons/ultras, total count and states/countries/provinces run, please contact Chris, Steve or Marc (#7). They will be more than happy to make the corrections. Also, if it's your Maniac anniversary date, please help Main Maniac out by renewing your membership. Dues collected help pay for website fees and maintenance, cat food, purchasing of additional Maniac wear and…future surprises. Keep your Maniac Seniority Number!

New Members for the Month of July
7/03 - Bill Powers #323 (Bremerton, Washington): Bill recently qualified for Bronze Maniac induction by completing the Coeur D'Alene and North Olympic Discovery Marathons 2 weeks apart. Having run 12 total marathons in 5 states, Bill teams with daughter Stephanie (#273) Day to become the third set of Father-Daughter Maniac combos.
7/03 - David Wang #324 (Portland, Oregon): Speedster David recently broke 3 hours in just his third marathon at Newport and is craving for more now. Having run Napa, Boston and Newport allows David to be certifiably insane at the Bronze level.
7/06 - Mauriella DiTommaso #325
(Edinboro, Pennsylvania): Out of all of the
East Coast states, Pennsylvania is the one with the most Maniacs represented,
so here's another one. Mauriella has run 5 lifetime marathons in 4 states and
recently completed the Buffalo and Hatfield-McCoy Marathon two weeks later to
be deemed a Bronze Maniac. Mauriella found out about the Maniacs from none
other than the Marathon Junkie himself.
7/06 - Keith Wright #326 (Palmyra, New Jersey): Keith has completed a total of 18 marathons in 10 states and DC and not too long ago ran the New Jersey Marathon on April 30th, and the Pocono Marathon on May 7th to qualify for Bronze Maniac status.
7/06 - Jim McGee #327 (Fishers, Indiana): Jim has run 9 lifetime marathons in six states. By running the Walt Disney World and Houston Marathons in consecutive weekends this year, Jim qualifies as a Bronze inductee in the Insane Asylum.
7/06 - Mark Dix #328 (Bellevue, Washington): Mark ran the Coeur D'Alene and North Olympic Discovery Marathons a few weeks apart to qualify for Bronze status in the Insane Asylum. He started his marathoning run in 2006 as his 4 total marathons/ultras also include this year's version of the Yakima River and Mt Si 50km ultra.
7/10 - Dane Rauschenberg #329 (Arlington, Virginia): You may have read about Dane's exploits in marathoguide.com, your local papers, or even on his own website…www.fiddy2.com. He's now over halfway done on his quest for completing a marathon a week in 2006 and he's still going strong. Currently Dane qualfies at the Ruthenium level but that will definitely change at the end of 2005. Keep on running Dane, you're quite an inspiration!
Dane Rauschenberg Fiona and Wayne Wright at the Great Wall Marathon
7/17 - Anne Scarazzo # 330 (Doylestown, Pennsylvania): Having started running in February 2005, Anne recently completed three marathons (Pocono, Lake Placid and Paul Bunyan) in three months to qualify for Bronze induction into the Insane Asylum. Her hope is to complete nine marathons in 2006. At the Paul Bunyan Marathon, Anne met up with a few "Maine-I-acs (the correct spelling of the organization according to Maine native Gary Allen) and said they could not have been nicer!
7/17 - Will Jackson #331 (Wauwatosa, Wisconsin): Will qualifies for Bronze Maniac induction by virtue of running 4 marathon in a little over 2 months a few months ago (Trailbreaker, Louisville, Ice Age 50km and the Sunburst Marathon). He has completed a total of 11 marathons in 5 states.
7/21 - Larry Herman #332 (Frederick, Maryland): For someone who didn't even run more than a mile in his lifetime, Larry sure has made up for lost time. Three years ago, he lost 110 pounds and started running. Seven months later, he completed the Miami Marathon. Now the assistant race director of the Frederick Marathon, Larry has run 12 additional marathons and 1 ultra in 9 states since that time. Having run the Potomac River and NipMuck Trail Marathons in May qualifies Larry for Bronze membership. Plus, he's a friend of the Dolphin's, but then again, who isn't?
7/21 - Dave Miller #333 (Tacoma, Washington): On the "advice" of Maniac #3 tp!, Dave qualified to join the Maniacs at Bronze level by recently completing 3 marathons in 2months (Capital City, Pacific Crest and the Lake Youngs Fund Run). His lifetime totals include 11 marathons in 2 states and Canda.
7/22 - Geri O'Krepki #334 (Hammond, Louisiana): Geri ran her first marathon in 1984 and then took a 13-year hiatus before she resumed her "insane schedule" of averaging around 9 marathons a year. She has 90 marathon completions, including an Ironman, to date and her best streak includes running in 14 states in one year, thus achieving the coveted 5-star Ruthenium status.
7/24 - Thomas Seng-Lai Tan #335 (Fishers, Indiana): Could it be coincidence that Maniacs #327 and #335 know each other? After all, they both list Fishers, Indiana as their place of residence. Thomas' best streak includes running 4 recent marathons in 3 months (Big Sur, Flying Pig, San Diego Rock and Roll and the Seafair Marathons) and is a bronze member in the Insane Asylum.
7/25 - Scott Sebelsky #336 (Camano Island, Washington): Scott has completed 35 marathons and ultras in 6 states to date, but his best streak was also a "fast one". Back in 1998, he completed the Dutchess County Classic, the East Lyme and the Hartford Marathon in 4 weeks, all in under 3 hours…Amazing!
7/27 - Bruce "Moose" O'Krepki #337 (Hammond, Louisiana): Since his wife Geri (#334) had just joined the Maniac clan, "Moose" had to follow suit, making them the 7th husband and wife Maniac combo's. Like Geri, they almost have the same stats…80 marathon completions, all 50 states completed, best streak of 17 marathons (14 states) in one year and a well-deserved 5-star Ruthenium status.
Rhetorical Revelations and W(Rites)…from the Rambunctious Rev
“A MarathonManiac is good at endurance running.
A MiniMarathonManiac is good at enduring running.”
Hiya Presidente Yee! Master of Multiple Marathons! (that “paper President” phrase you used this month was WrongO! You are Supreme MarathonManiacMonarch for Life!!!)
Know what this Pennsylvanian discovered in July? MarathonManiacs are all OVER the place in Washington State. Sheeshkabob, I had no idea until the SeaFair Marathon, not the world’s flattest mArathOn roUte, sigh. But the ice cream and watermelon at the finish were a nice touch, though not nearly as impressive as the best part: the company you folks are. Wow!
You people are downright Friendly.
One can’t help but notice. We each have relatives and friends who think we manifest some sort of psychological disorder, and shy far away from joining us. They do not comprehend the deep, wonderful rewards of endurance running. Consequently, we have experienced wandering about at races alone, until one day when we find that, by golly, there IS another foolhardy fellow or female friend to be found at these 26.2 mile extravaganzas who “gets it” about going long more than once a season. We chat a bit, jog a few miles together, and find a mutual regard for one another’s feats of the feet, incredible or silly though we may be.
But those chance meetings multiply by the hundreds with you! This fellow from far-flung Philadelphia flew to the far west and found phenomenally friendly folks who frolicked for fun like family for four days, folding him favorably into their flock! Friendly? Tours and hikes and barbeques and steak dinners and a score of “hey, come over here and meet Miller…and Fenstermacher …and Shoup…and Yanni…and …”, and I never before had a treat quite like that fresh ice cold bottle of water from the back of a support vehicle at mile 19 from an almost total stranger, but actually the husband of a Maniac I had met three hours before. And a second bottle at mile 23? Thought I had been transported to the cool breezes of Mt. Rainier itself.
You Maniacs describe respect in your smiles, your welcomes, the swapping of stories, the chats in the runs, the hugs at the ends of the runs, the zany photographer at the finish, the Hooters lunches and Red Robin desserts. The grasp of the marathon accomplishment seems to breed a connectedness of a most fraternal/sororital order. Most of my running sisters are far superior scamperers than I, but teaseth me not at all. (They’ve got too much other material.) Friendliness was in 3-D in Washington.
If You are a Marathon Maniac and you ever even once hesitated to walk over to anyone wearing the ugly cat singlet to say “Hi, My Name is Charlie Brown, # 765, who are you?”, then here’s the Thought of the Month: Have at it, Matey.
These folks are delighted to meet you. Even better, they are impressed with you ALREADY. You are a MarathonManiac, which means there was a period in your life when you took on the ridiculous, scaled the absurd, lasted to tell the story, and have come back for more. You are their kind of people, and they already like a whole lot about you! (No, not everything, of course. Matter of fact, next month’s topic right here: “The Characters among the MarathonManiacs”. ….. Nah. But scared some of you, eh?)
What is cooler than a light green wind shirt is that you, dear reader, have an easy role to play in this scheme of things that actually might make the planet a whole lot better for somebody out there yet.
Have you ever encouraged someone to enter a serious organization? That can be tough stuff, controversial, unwelcome even. Need to do some selling there, right? Or have you ever taken the wrong approach and gotten the ol’ rejection? (e.g. “Hi, Sugarlegs, run marathons often?” will pretty much do it.)
But in Maniac world, inviting anyone at a marathon to consider the Maniacs someday is easy. MM is a friendly club, simultaneously unconcerned about “times” and devoted to “good times”, all with people who know the warm fuzzy of finishing yet another marathon.
I asked Chris and Steve what their goals might be for the club. They shrugged, smiled, and said virtually simultaneously, “Yeah. To be the biggest marathon club in the world.” No particular reason why, just that that’d be fun.
Don’t see any reason why it won’t be.
Unless we start taking this stuff too seriously. So? Don’t. We’ve won the wonderful role of encouraging people to get fit, stay healthy, be happy and have boatloads of fun along the way.
Now, please excuse me, I gotta go back out and try to get to 8 miles in 5 seconds per mile faster than Wednesday, or I’ll be 13 weeks behind my Boston schedule instead of 12….
