Website Maintenance July 27, 2017 ()

To improve steeplechasers.org website performance, starting Thursday July 27, the website will be moving from godaddy to the DigitalOcean server which hosts scoretility. We plan to leave the current service live so people can view the website during the transition. There may be some interruptions during this process, hopefully short-lived.

To prevent store purchases on godaddy during the transition, the payment gateway will be disabled so no one will be able to check out their purchases. The new “Add Event” feature we’ve provided so local race directors can add their own events will also be disabled. There will be a message at the top of each page indicating this transition is taking place, and that the store and Add Event are unavailable.

Once you see that message at the top of the page and this announcement post disappear, this will mean you have access to the website on the new server.

Decathlon Update: Remaining sessions will be at Brunswick High School ()

Unfortunately Linganore High School track was not available for the remainder of the season. So it looks like we’re back to Brunswick High School starting July 5. Brunswick High School is at 101 Cummings Dr, Brunswick, MD, about 20 minutes or so from downtown Frederick. Not optimal but this is what we could get. Thanks again to Tim O’Keefe for bringing us the decathlon, which is in its 27th year, and for his diligence working with FCPS on the scheduling.

Summer Solstice Twilight 8K photos ()

The Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club is trying a new service called FLASHFRAME to collect photos of the race. It’s a little rough around the edges, but the cool thing about this service is that it automatically tags the photos with the bib numbers. It seems to be working most of the time. Head on over …

Notes from the Pack – I’m Not Alone ()

by John Godinet

I wrote this story for the ALS newsletter, and I wanted to share with all my friends…

ALS has not really affected my running, if anything, I’m welcoming ALS. See, we all go through life, skipping right along; nothing in the world is going to get you down. Then one day a …

Stay Tuned with Nicole – Time on Your Feet Matters ()

by Nicole Davis, DPT

I am a “take-my-time-and-enjoy-the-scenery” type of runner.  I can run to that finish line 50 kilometers away; I’m just not going to get there particularly quickly.  I’m okay with this, and enjoy the journey anyway.  The problem arises when I’m trying to find a training plan for that 50k race.
