The Prez apologizes for this way overdue rendition of the newsletter. A couple of reasons contributed to this late edition. First off, the month long sojourn to Europe with Maniacs #2 and #7, which by the way was an awesome trip. Many memories, lots of beer, 5 marathons and very limited FREE Internet access. Secondly, the all important Prez’ laptop crashed in Amsterdam, and with it all of the newsletter files which of course, weren’t backed up. So if I missed some of your star promotions, pictures or new member biography information, I’m sorry. I also highlight any race summary on marathonguide.com with any Maniac names attached to them, so after October 8, I don’t have them. If you would like to be recognized for these achievements in a future newsletter, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org

The conditions in Victoria were much more favorable for a
marathon than Chicago yesterday, although it did rain a bit. It started out dry
and was even sunny for a while with the temperature in the mid 50's. It started
to rain after about 2 hours so the leaders didn't get soaked much, but by the
time I finished in 3:53:18 I felt like a drowned rat.
As usual for me, I started out too fast. It didn't help that the majority of markers were in km instead of miles and I missed the first 4 of them (if they were even there). The first one I saw was for 5 km. I had trouble doing the mental conversion, but still figured that I was a little faster than I had intended to start. It did not compute till I saw the 5 mile marker at 40:59. That was obviously too fast for my goal of 3:45. I backed off my pace a bit but still ran the next 5 miles in 42:08. I got the third 5 mile split about right at 43:19; however I continued to slow down after that instead of holding the pace. My wheels didn't fall off, but they sure got gummed up. It didn't help that the rain started to get pretty heavy. Thankfully the wind was only light. I was sure glad to see the harbor come into view and finish. The 4th 5 mile split was 46:01 and the 5th was 49:15, which gave me about a 12 minute positive split for the 2nd half :-(
The whole experience in spite of the rain and my blow up was quite pleasant. My wife, Cher, and I really enjoy Victoria so we made a little vacation out of the event. We took the Victoria Clipper up from Seattle on Friday and stayed through today, Monday. It was only a 3 block walk to our hotel, The Embassy Inn, from the ship. However the best part was that the start line was practically right in front of our hotel. I went back to my room for my final potty stop instead of the usual anxious wait in line. In fact, the sign for the 3:30 queue was right in front of our hotel. I've never experienced a more convenient arrangement. I just shed my outer garments and handed them to Cher and was off. After collecting my goodies she handed me back my dry clothes, saving me the walk to the
drop bag collection site.

Changes to the Monthly Maniac Newsletter
I've read your messages and now I'm acting. Its much too lengthy, especially with nearly 700 members, to list all of the races and whom ran them, so to shorten the newsletter I'll try this. I'll continue to list races with the names of the Maniacs running only if it falls within the following criteria: 1) I have photographs of the race, 2) a member submits a race report, 3) the race director is a Maniac, 4) if your name shows up in the weekly marathonguide.com summaries, 5) if you win a race (you’ll have to inform me, especially if it’s an ultra!) and 6) give me any other reason to include it. I'd rather include more pictures of you, the members, in the newsletter so please keep those photos coming.

TRI – CITIES MARATHON
May Cheng Brian Pendleton, Monte Pascual and “Road Kill” Haase
10/01 - Mike Burke #653 (Torrance, California): Mike has an impressive streak of running the Los Angeles Marathon 7 years in a row and 14 times overall. Earlier this year he completed the Mercedes, Los Angeles, ING Georgia and the St. Louis Marathons within 3 months to qualify for Bronze Maniac induction. His lifetime achievements include 51 marathons in 25 states.
10/01 - Richard Sadowski #654 (Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada): Richard (and his wife Lorelei) were turned on to the Maniacs by “Coconutboy” Mahoney as they all reside in British Columbia. He has run 25 marathons including 2 trips to Boston. Since Richard ran the Stockholm marathon back in 2000, his wife wanted to run one in Sweden so they the entire family of 6 went to Sweden for a month this past summer for an unforgettable vacation experience, as well as a marathon. In fact the first North Americans ever to run this marathon. Richard is a Bronze Maniac with his 3 marathon completion in 3 months.
10/01 - Lorelei Sadowski #655 (Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada): When Lorelei and husband Richard aren’t busy attending to their four children (ages 16, 13 and a pair of 2 year old twin boys) or running marathons, she a schoolteacher (grade 4). She has completed 11 marathons and has a Boston marathon finish to her credit. But perhaps her greatest thrill was running (and placing third woman overall) in a marathon in Lottorp, Sweden this summer in Her 3 marathons in 3 months qualifies her for Bronze Maniac membership.
10/03 - Chris Baker #656 (Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada): We knew we'd get a few new members after the tough Tahoe Triple and Chris is the first of those. No stranger to back to back marathons (New Hampshire and Maine in 2006), he needed a greater challenge and completing Tahoe was the ultimate in his pursuit of adventure. So Chris, welcome to the Insane Asylum as our newest 5-star Ruthenium member.
10/08 - Jeff Hendler #657 (Toronto, Ontario, Canada): The next of the Tahoe Triplers, Jeff also ran the Quebec City marathon as a tune-up a few weeks before the triple. He has run 11 marathons to date in 5 states and 2 countries. He too joins the Insane Asylum as a 5-star Ruthenium member.
Chris Baker Lorelei and Richard Sadowski
10/08 - David Brent Clark #658 (Northglenn, Colorado): Having recently completed the Top of Utah and Boulder Marathons a few weeks apart, David is a Bronze Maniac. A relative newbie to marathoning (2 years running), he has 4 lifetime marathons. While running countless numbers of shorter races, he has now focused his priorities on marathons and ultras. But his biggest accomplishment…he used to weigh 320 pounds and he's currently at 180 pounds. Way to go David!
10/08 - Daniel Sears #659 (Bellevue, Washington): No Dan, you don’t need a special handshake, secret password or even sacrifice a body part to become a Marathon Maniac. All you have to do is run 3 marathons /ultras in 3 months, which you have done (Haulin’ Aspen, Grand Teton and the North Face Endurance 50 km). So yes, you passed the test and welcome to the world of Bronze. Check out Dan’s blog at http://swallowedabug.blogspot.com/
10/08 - Andy Fritz #660 (Olympia, Washington): When Andy ran in the furious gusty winds at the inaugural Bellingham Bay Marathon this month, he had only one goal in mind; to complete the race which would fulfill his Maniac entry requirement and enable him to purchase the coveted yellow singlet. With his previous marathon completions at San Francisco and Skagit Flats, he is a Bronze Maniac. He has run 14 marathons to date in 5 states.
10/11 – Richard White #661 (New York, New York ): Numerous times in previous years, Richard has completed 2 marathon in either 2 or 3 weeks to qualify for Bronze Maniac membership. Included in Richard’s lifetime marathon resume (his first was in 1997) include the Paris and Copenhagen Marathons and the Knickerbocker 60km.
– Russell Cheney #662 (Torrance,
California): Russell had a banner year in 2005, running marathons in 23 states
thus earning him 8-star Platinum status in the Insane Asylum. His lifetime totals of 196 marathons and 41
ultras are impressive. He has completed marathons in every state except Hawaii,
Alaska, Oklahoma and South Carolina.
10/15 – Chris Labbe #663 (Longmont, Colorado): Chris is one runner who seems to enjoy ultras as much as marathons. He’s completed the Leadville 100 miler twice and the Copper Canyon Ultra in Mexico. Earlier this year, Chris ran back to back marathons (Helena and Casper) to qualify for 4-star Iridium status. He has run in 9 states.
Russell Cheney Travis Self
10/16 – Travis Self #664 (Birmingham, Alabama): Ironman Travis (he’s completed 4 of them) qualifies for Bronze Maniacdom when he completed the CDA Ironman, Bartlett Trail Ultra and the Tupelo Marathon within 3 months. A friend of Alabama Maniac recruiter Phil Min and Meredith Farrell, Travis has 18 lifetime marathons to his credit in 8 states.
10/17 – Gail Goldstein #665 (Coral Springs, Florida): Gail’s family and friends think she’s a Maniac and after completing marathons in Bismarck, North Dakota and Billings, Montana on back-to-back days, she’s a certified 4-star Iridium one. Her lunacy in that quest included having to take 3 planes to arrive in Bismarck and then having to drive 400 miles to get to Billings! She has run marathons in 20 states so far.
10/17 – Andrew Readinger #666 (Lubbock, Texas): The Maniacs were worried when #666 was about to come up…would any new member want it or should we just skip it? Well, have no fear, Andrew came to the rescue and was happy to have the number. In fact, he requested it as he’s not into the devil but says that its easy to remember! Having done 3 marathons in 3 states in 8 days recently (Twin Cities, Baltimore and Atlantic City, with his cousin-in-law Maniac #430 Marius Hansen) makes “AndrewR666” a 5-star Ruthenium Maniac. He can thank his uncle Maniac #430 Craig Swanson for starting him on this madness!
10/17 – Ross Kinney #667 (Aurora, Colorado): Last month, Ross completed the Twin Cities and the Denver Marathons to fulfill his Bronze Maniac requirement of 2 marathons in 2 weeks. He has 15 lifetime marathons to his credit in 8 states.
10/18 – Alan Redmon #668 (Greenville, South Carolina): Twice in Alan’s marathon history he has run 3 marathons in 3 months to earn him Bronze level membership . With a total of 10 marathons run in 9 states, Alan offers a better reason for deserving to be a Maniac…anybody who ran the ING Georgia or the Twin Cities Marathon has GOT to be a Maniac!
10/21 – David Nevitt #669 (Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada): Back in the year 2000 David had an impressive marathon “speed” streak where he ran a marathon a month for 7 consecutive months, all under 3 hours! Flash forward to 2007where up to date he has run 56 lifetime marathons and 2 ultras, in 9 states and 6 provinces. David, you’re a certified 2-star Silver Maniac.
10/21 – Faye Britt #670 (Everett, Washington): Faye enters the Insane Asylum as a Bronze Maniac by virtue of completing the Portland and Halloween Marathons within three weeks. So Faye, you’re in and we’re excited that you’re excited about joining the club!
10/21 – Brian Pilgrim #671 (Rio Rancho, New Mexico): Brian was volunteering at the Duke City Marathon when someone told him about the Marathon Maniacs. He looked up the criteria and lo and behold, he had already met the Bronze level qualifier of 3 in 3 months Tucson, Ghost Town Ultra and the Flying Dutchman) . He has run 7 lifetime marathons and ultras in 4 states.
10/22 – Elaine Lavalee #672 (Toronto, Ontario, Canada): Another 2007 Tahoe Tripler finisher, Elaine reaps the reward of attaining 5-star Ruthenium status, and well deserved. She has completed 15 marathons and has competed in numerous shorter races and has a few triathlon finishes to her credit.
10/22 – Cindy Wetzel #673 (Paradise, California): When it rains, it pours for those Tahoe Triplers, as Cindy is the fourth new member to join in October after accomplishing the 3-day Lake Tahoe event. Like a broken record, it’s a 5-star Ruthenium status for you Cindy.
10/23 – Haley Siggers #674 (Fort Worth, Texas): Haley recently completed 3 marathons in 3 weeks (Marathon to Marathon, Duke City and the Rio Grande Marathon) to qualify for Bronze level in the Insane Asylum. She is also one of the few Maniacs to have completed an Ironman Triathlon.
10/24 – Lia Moldovan #675 (Albuquerque, New Mexico): Lia, aka “runliarun, is a “reluctant runner” and yearns for the yellow shirt. By having completed the New Mexico, Royal Victoria and the Duke City Marathon qualifies her for Bronze Maniac induction. And be sure to check out her blog at http://smileatmile20.blogspot.com
10//30 – Tim McGinty #676 (Cleveland , Ohio): The “judge” is a 3-ster Gold Maniac by running in 13 races so far in 2007. Tim has been marathoning for quite some time, his first being in 1982 at Cleveland. After 60 marathons and 9 ultras in 15 states and DC, his eventual goal is to keep running marathons until he’s 99, then switch to Ironmans. That’s the Maniac spirit Tim, YOU CAN DO IT!

Rhetorical Revelations and W(Rites)…from the Rambunctious Rev
October 31, 2007
Hiya, Mr. President!
News, Stevie, BIG news. I hit two new maniacal milestones in one race in October! You haven’t gotten the programmer to craft columns for these yet, and you know I don’t like braggin’, but I can’t wait to tell you!
At the St. George Marathon…I qualified….for my first run as a Clysedale!* I know there are many of you at the forefront of our club who just aren’t likely to ever follow in those footsteps, so I’m feeling pretty large about that! And second? I actually pulled off a new Pacing Plan that worked to a tee, with Korecki, who deserves a minor portion of the credit. See, I came in across the finish line at the same time that he was getting back from the hotel, where he had showered and dressed after he had crossed the finish line. Man, the discipline I showed, huh?
Unfortunately, the Marine Corps Marathon later in the month … we’ll just say that when a Marine tells me to “Go for It Now, Sir,” I may have gotten a little too patriotic, shortened my stretching exercises to nil, and something called a soleus (calf muscle) pulled when it should have pushed, early. Came home medal-less, and here I thought that the stretching I did two weeks ago was plenty.
Ahh, the contrasts in this club, where the likes of me can jog these lovely 26.2-milers with my Thirty-times-a-Year Pals and my 2:40-to-3:15er Buddies. I’ve heard your conversations: your injuries seem rare; the need to buy a larger belt is unknown. Ice cream you devour when you like, and nary an ounce you add. You’re all svelte, and you do impress in the pictures.
TP and Runningguy, Action Jackson and my buddy Larry Macon, the ever-smiling Janet B. and others may wish I could remain bubbly about all the many successful marathons we laborers continue to run, Steve. Our club grows by thirty, forty freshly enthusiastic members a month, all aiming for a new star level in no time, by golly! I bet they will get them, too. And to all of the Wonder Members, we think, “WOW!” Your bulletin board stories drop our jaws justly. We’re proud, amazed, and delighted to rub elbows with you, even if perhaps only during the Star-Spangled Banner. So we’re going POSITIVE!!!!
But my take? You guys make it look easy, but back here, WOW, every time I run (HA!) one of these things, I get more impressed. In a recent statistical study of our Maniac membership, for a plethora of good reasons no doubt, maybe 300 of us, though having previously acquired Permanent Maniacal Status, were about like me in ‘07. (Not a problem…an embarrassment maybe being like me, but not a problem. This is supposed to be fun, and life happens.) See, we hit bumps in the road. For me personally, the biggest bump is that Wall bit, except with me it is the wall at mile Nine. (I know, you’ve never heard of that Wall, but that’s why God introduced us, Prez.)
Back here, we’re not discouraged,we’re in awe, mostly. Admittedly, I’ve heard some whispered suspicions that you have some secret Wheat-Barley-Couscous-Tofu Gu. But I squashed those for ya, Prez! Besides, I think your secret is cross-training by swimming in the Bite Sandals, not some secret Gu.
Now, for my Mini-Maniac buddies, we’ve got to rally. All for one and one for all and all that! Pick your own target for ’08! Revpokeyfeet himself proffers an example.
I’m 52, at 200 pounds on Nov.1 (I’m 5’9” and startled), and tomorrow Mr. Soleus and I must limp forward and postpone my NYC Marathon eligibility one year. So what to do? If two short years ago I could personal best at 4:07, then one year from now (and thirty five pounds removed?) maybe I can scoot around NY in chase of Boston’s required 3:35!
Ahh, Boston! Beantown. American Liberty, three-cornered hats, flower-covered parks, ivy-leafed colleges, and the occasional 42 kisses from Wellesley girls.
Me? The required 3:35? Of course it’s possible! Well alright, not by me, certainly, but Korecki told me to be up in these articles! So I’m going for it…and I want to leave him in the dust too.
Mini-maniac buddies? Maybe you want to get 2 Halfs and 2 Fulls done in your comeback year…terrific. Or see a new state, or five. Whatever it is, fellow-MiniManiacs, pick your goal, play it a little safe, get there slowly, steadily, and determinedly (cue the trumpets and French horns), and Rally! Sure, keep serving friends, families, churches, and communities without interruption. But boy, we can plug away at the crazy goal, too. We’re Maniacs.
And more than that, we’ve got this:
We’ve got All-Stars for friends: the Mega-Maniacs. Their support and enthusiasm are like no other. When you’re lucky enough to meet them, ask them their story, and you’ll find? They are way beyond description, but they’re just as wrapped up in believing that this is all about the rest of us, the mini-Maniacs.
And that’s why an overweight, slow-footed Reverend from the other side of the country was asked to write, and why I keep running. I’m not the talented one. I’m the lucky one.
Love ya Stevie,
AND STILL MORE PORTLAND MARATHONERS
