The event will be low key-essentially an extension of oweekly "pump house" runs, with the added wrinkle that we plan certify the course, thus making it usefiil as a Boston qualifier. Thmarathon will start at Baldwin Place (at TRRC World HeadquarteP.O. Box 99) proceed down the recently opened bike path to Yorktowout to Route 118, South to Route 134, then, after a turn or two, Croton Dam Road to Croton Dam to Route 129 to Croton Avenue Maple to Montrose Station Road to Washington Street to BluMountain Park. The field for this inaugural event will be limited, sincthe race director also plans on running in it.</p><p>The Mother's Day race and walk brought out a good crowThe weather was not as inviting as past Mother's Days, but thvolunteers and participants warmed things up. It was a great eveA few comments on North County News: the change in thcourse came as a surprise-probably too much of a surprise. Let's hosuch changes will be made known prior to race day. The reversalthe course proved to be considerably more difficult than most wouhave thought. Compliments to Doug Miller for trying to stimulate neinterest in an old event, it's always difficult to pull all the piece</p><p>together, and he managed to do that and also come up with outstanding T-shirt. (He got help for Karen on the shirt, obviouslyThe Lincoln Hall 5-Miler produced excellent performanc</p><p>by the Taconic men's team.

The finish line proved no match for Mother Nature (she didn't race) as it became the first and only casualty of tday when the clock was blown off its stand and the banner bent shortly after our crack finish line crew completed their set-up. Everresourceful, a volunteer was enlisted to yell out finishing times as the competitors crossed the line.Tara Maguire crossed the bandaged and bruised finish line first, over a minute ahead of second place finisher ChristineGarger. Tara continues her strong running, as she was the only competitor to break the 20 minute mark. Christine's second place finisalong with a strong performance from her mother Roni (who won her age group) enabled them to win the mother-daughter teamcompetition. 1995 Runner of the Year Debra Kenney rounded out the top three with her usual strong performance.</p><p>Despite Mother Nature's worst performance in recent Mother's Day history, a large number of runners were joined by a verywelcome contingent of walkers. Due to the growing interest in the walking segment of this event, we are planning to provide officialfinishing times for all walkers in 1997. In addition. Mother Nature will be invited to officially participate next year and will be assignedprestigious elite number "I" in order to avoid any of the problems she presented this year.</p><p>Hooray for the volunteers and runners that helped make this year's Mother's Day race so successful. A very special thanks toKevin Lenahan for the T-shirt design. Also, special thanks to our raffle prize donators: Court Sports, Club Fit, the Premier Club, TRamada Inn, Rattlesnakes, Denise Borgeest, Pasta Plus and last, but definitely not least, the Daily Bagel and Dan Moffitt, who givus constant support.</p><p>The Humpty DumptyAward. . .</p><p>Goes to Brian Wheaton,who is often behind the scenes, doing</p><p>what needs doing.This time,</p><p>we gratefully acknowledgehis skills in putting</p><p>the clock back together againafter its fall.Too bad Humpty Dumpty</p><p>n e v e rmade Brian's acquaintance</p><p>Mother/DaughterT e a m A w a r d s</p><p>1.

Iam pleased that he has taken me up on my invitation to put together some runner's travel-log notes. I hope you enjoy them and I inviteyou to share your experiences.)</p><p>Running opportunities in San Francisco reflect the diversity which characterizes this vibrant city. As a runner, my favoritelocation is the financial district, due to the easy access to the waterfront which provides some of the best running routes in this vehiclechoked city. The Hyatt Regency at the Embarcadero Center is a good hotel choice in this part of San Francisco. Every Wednesday at 6:0p.m. runners meet at the hotel for a group run.On this morning, I started my run from the Hyatt which is 10 minutes from the waterfront. The Embarcadero (Spanish for wharis a boulevard that provides access to the waterfront area of San Francisco and draws many runners in the morning. I turned left at theEmbarcadero and ran on the sidewalk toward Fisherman's Wharf which is the first destination at 1.5 miles. I strongly suggest a brief stoat Pier 39 to see the sea lions. Some years ago, the local sea lion population decided that the boat docks provided a desirable gatheringspot. The city's guiding view of tolerance enabled the sea lions to adopt this spot on a permanent basis. This morning there wereapproximately 250 sunning and barking on the...</p></li></ul>
