Freedom's Run Post Race TentSeptember 30, 2017, 10:00amBavarian Inn, Shepherdstown WVHard to believe, but the Freedom's Run Races are less than 2 weeks away. This is the goal race for the Half Marathon Training Group, so we are expecting a big turnout from them. We also have a few from the Marathon Group running, as well as other members running either the 5K or 10K.

Please join us at the After Party at the Bavarian Inn. Just look for a white tent with the Steeplechasers banner on it. We will provide cookies, chips, water and other beverages. If anyone wants to bring their favorite post-race food, please comment below with what you are bringing.

We are looking for a few people to volunteer to man the tent while some of us are getting in our miles or taking pictures at the finish line.

We hope to see lots of the Freedom's Run participants, as well as other Steeps.

FYI . . . I saw two runners on Yellow Springs / Rosemont this morning around 6:30. I don't know if they were Steeplechasers, but I wanted to put it out there . . . WEAR REFLECTIVE GEAR!!!! Not only were they running on the road because there's no sidewalk in that area, but they were not wearing reflective gear AND they were wearing dark colors. ... See MoreSee Less

 

Comment on Facebook

I think I saw them as well, and I actually see quite a few people in the morning without reflective gear.

was that the shirtless guy and the girl? i. see them every morning

I often see people out wearing dark gray or black in the dark or early morning/late evening. It's so dangerous as they are impossible to see until you're too close for comfort.

Good heads up. I'm pretty guilty of this.

I just don't understand people sometimes. I have brought this up to runner families, Wear Reflectives. OMG!!

I run in my neighborhood - no sidewalks. Almost all of the neighbors know I will be out there. But if it is a dark and gloomy day, I wear bright colors - some with reflective words and/or dots. I want everyone to see me πŸ™‚

Almost as bad as the kid riding a bicycle, on the highway, in the dark, no lights and wearing dark colors. I almost had heart failure.

This is exactly why my Rick O'Donnell would not run or even bike on the roads. It's just too dangerous to run or bike the roads.

I think about this every morning when I run on Market Street and see numerous people that aren't well lit (in the reflective sense). It also startles me as a fellow runner because there's some random person in dark clothes coming out of the shadows.

Amen, Tina Cole.

Yep I see this crap on Rosemont every time I leave for work at 5 AM. Guess they want to be organ donors

its a great way to thin the crowds :0

oh god effie we think alike

While we are at it. Run against traffic please.

Thank you for the reminder!

Speedy recovery Mark!

Apologies to those who have already heard my story, but I want to reach as many people as possible. 2 weeks ago someone stole my purse from my vehicle while I walked my dog in Ballenger Creek Park. I had no idea that I had just become victim to a national criminal network - just a mile from my house! Not only did I lose a lot of cash and gift cards, but my ID is being used for fraud - I have no idea what else they will try. This group targets parking lots in parks/trail heads and gyms because they know people do not want to carry their purses. Please stay vigilant - don't be naive like me.

You can read more about the 'Felony Lane Gang' here the article is a few years old, but they have hit our area a few times over the last few months:

Thanks for sharing. Sorry that this happened to you.

Thank you so much for sharing! Sorry that you were a victim 😞

Oh no. I am sorry this happened to you. yeah, yeah

where did you get them

Oops - wrong post -

I do try to be careful if I am somewhere like this.

And if I know that I am leaving my car somewhere like this, I try to leave everything at home. But I do forget sometimes ;(

Thanks for the warning! I'm so very sorry this is happening to you.

Thank you for the warning. It is kind of you to share.

Thanks so much for the warning. I bring my purse with me all of the time. No more!

So sorry this happened to you. One of my coworkers had this experience at a park near Hagerstown. It was about two years ago. They watched her lock her purse in the back and then broke in while she was at a family picnic.

I run over there all the time. Such a peaceful park... really sad to hear this. Thank you for the heads up.

As a Steep and a police officer who works these cases please know that they are usually already in the parking lot or nearby when you park. If you get out and put your purse in the trunk or tuck under the seat they see that. They quickly sneak up to commit the crime, often under 30 seconds. If at all possible only bring with you on your run what you can carry with you like a driver's license and a debit card. Leave everything else at home.

www.incipio.com/stowaway-iphone-6-case-with-card-holder.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cse&utm... This has helped me so much because I can have all the ID I need just with my phone which I take everywhere. Then don't have to take my purse with most places. Mine has room for 3 cards.

I hope they get caught if not they have a hard time telling it to the God in the sky.

They make shorts now so you can put your cards and your keys.

Another impt thing to look for is most of Felony Lane Gang utilize rental cars with FL tags and apply their own tint to the windows. Just something to be aware of, if you see someone acting suspicious. Never be afraid to call the police with information.

Looking for advice: been nursing recent knee pain w ice, ibuprofen, and taking runs easy. Was improving. Today I started a run and calf was tight, same leg. Tried to push through it, then about 3.5 miles in I felt my calf pop. Seemed like the muscle but that doesn't make sense. I immediately stopped running. It's sore to walk on, painful to run on. More ice, rest, ibuprofen? Anything else? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Compression socks. Take it easy. Foam roll daily before and after workouts when it's healed.

Feeling a sudden pop, then significantly increased trouble/pain walking/running.....that's when I generally recommend getting a professional evaluation. PT or Orthopedist.

Right on ..forget the home remedies and get professional evaluation and advice

Time for the Doctor.

Grrr. Was afraid of that. I know this comes up a lot but, any recommendations?

My knee "popped" in mile 2 of the frederick half years ago. Then the swelling and pain kicked in. Required ortho visit, X-rays, and PT.

Hope this is appropriate...

Looking for a running friend to join a Ragnar Race relay team.
Need to be available this coming Friday, 22 September through Saturday, 23 September 2017. Yes, I know that is in three days.

For those not familiar, this is a relay race that runs from Cumberland, MD to the Navy Yard in Washington, DC. There are 12 runners broken out into two vans. My van needs a person to join us. There are currently 4 guys as part of this van (if that makes a difference to you).

If you are interested, please let me know and I can let you know what sections you will be running There will be three runs that range from 2 miles to 6.7 miles. Speed is not of a concern, just the ability to finish a 6.7 mile run.

Also, if you know of someone that may be interested, please forward me their information so I can contact them.
Thanks!

Thank you to all who organized Rick's Run! As someone who runs in Lake Linganore, I thought I had mastered hills. I found out this morning that I most definitely have NOT! Although a little disappointed in myself for having to walk a bit on the hills, I had a blast!!!! Maybe next year I will do more than one loop??? Thank you! ... See MoreSee Less

 

Comment on Facebook

Um, everybody walks those hills, don't be too hard on yourself.

Im in linganore! I have a few good hilly routes

If you only had to walk "a bit" on those hills, you are crushing it.

I don't think I saw a single person run the whole big hill! I am sure some folks did but I didn't see it.

Just do hill repeats on eaglehead drive and you'll be fine for next year πŸ˜‚. Pinehurst also has some hills you can incorporate.

Ha, you ran the hills? Great job. But we even walk some of the flats.

I thought everybody walked those hills - at least a little.

If so please comment with a yes so I can get an idea of who's interested. We are also having bootcamp Friday at 5am. ... See MoreSee Less

 

Comment on Facebook

I would be interested in a Tues night bootcamp, but not this week. Already committed.

I would do either. I just wasn't able to this past Friday. 5 is early but I have the privilege of napping 😁. I'll be there Tuesday at 6. Should I bring anything?

5am is fine for me but Friday was a bad idea (for me). Run today was painful.

Yes

Would be interested for this evening time in general, but outta town until Thurs this week. Hoping there is interest! But I do tend to run on Tues's. Is this at Baker Park?

is this for Steeps members only?

I'd love that. Keep me posted.

Yes, 6 pm is better.

Is the boot camp in the am or pm ?

I'd join when I can. Just keep me posted

Tuesday pm and fri am is good but I'm just starting back from hip surgery.

I'd like to try your bootcamp. Evenings work better for me unless you want to do a 3am boot camp. Lol.

Yes Friday evening would work

Yes

Keep me posted, would love to come

Would love to try the bootcamp but Tuesday is the marathon and 1/2 group run at 6pm. Perhaps another day other than Tuesday may be better?

I like 6pm!

I'd love to do this but I'm a little confused. This week Tuesday at 6 and it will be Monday's at 6 following that?? I definitely can't do Tuesdays but Monday's are good for us.

Yes 6 pm is better

This sounds awesome!

Sure

i will be there with a friend!

will it be rain or shine? there is predicted t-storms

I'm with Josh. Boot camp before long runs I can't do. 5am is fine for time though.

Tuesdays are rst days!!!!!!!

Would anyone who runs at a slower pace 13mi/min be willing to run with me about 3-4 times a week in the mornings. I usually run at Baker Park around 8:45am. Want to start off with 3-4 miles and then work my way up to more. Let me know if you're interested. Thanks! ... See MoreSee Less

I'm around a 12-13 mm but can't do 8:45 because of driving the school bus.

Hi Erika Vasquez Terrel I can run with you. That's my fast pace! πŸ˜‚. I'm new to Running. I'm traveling for work but can meet up this Friday morning and most mornings when I'm in town. Let me know.

Im starting again too after a year break so I ill be slow. Just let me know what days you want to meet up.

I'd like to stay on your discussion for my daughter. She can't start for about another week or so due to a foot sprain. But she needs to get going for a half marathon in Jan. I'm not sure of her everyday schedule, but it would be great for her to join you guys if at 8:45. She teaches at a Before School for the Y until 8:30. She's going to join the Steeplechasers as well. Her name is Erin Hessong. Just tag me for now until we figure out if she can join? She's a tad faster, but it won't be long until everyone is faster. Thnx!

My schedule changes weekly, but I could drop in for occasional weekday morning runs from Baker Park!

Add me. What days will you be there?

I'm so glad that so many other ladies are in the same boat as I am and are interested in running together. I think I'm going to try and create a FB page for us to provide meeting times. I am trying to rearrange my schedule so that I can run Mondays, (some) Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8:45am. I will try and get that done today. I'm not the most technically savvy person so if I need help I may just reach out to some of you for help. πŸ™‚

So I created the group under the name FSRC Weekday Mornings Running Group, if you'd like to be included in the group please let me know and I'll have send you a friend request first and then add you to the group once you've excepted my request. So let me know if you'd like to be added to the group. Have a great day!

Would you please add/invite Erin Hessong? She lives in Whittier. I'll let her know it's coming. TU!!

I can do Wednesday through Friday evening or afternoon, but not morning because I work as a teacher/SEIA and Monday and Tuesday evenings I work as well

Hi. Can you add me? Mornings are good and I'm generally a 12 ish pace.

Hi all, I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to reply. It was my dad's birthday this weekend and we've had family in town so it's been busy. We are running tomorrow at Baker Park at 9am. We'll meet in front of the Tally Rec Center and run about 3 miles or whatever you're up for. Question - Billy Clem suggested that we can post our times on the FSRC Group Runs page where only those who are members can see the post. Would you guys rather do that or have a smaller group page where only our smaller group can see the post/meet-up times? I'm fine with whatever. The FSRC running page allows anyone to join in on our runs whereas the small group page would only allow those as members to join in on the runs. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks.

This is a small event, but demanding in that we actually time two events so it takes a little more time than the typical 5K They have a kids mile they ask us to time prior to the 5K. I believe Rick Albee and Tim O'Keefe will be there as well, so I only need a few. Chris and Erica for sure, but I'll let Ken and Becky fight it out to determine which of them will complete the group πŸ™‚ Thanks everyone. Last finish line on old knee 😣

Of course if Ken and Becky both come, I'll sit in a chair πŸ™‚

See you Saturday Mark !

Mark, unfortunately my plans require me leaving home by 9am so I will not be able to help out Saturday

Hear that Ken Kotchenreuther?

Rick Albee ? You coming?

LAST MINUTE CHANGE!!! I've learned the event doesn't start until 9:00! Volunteers don't need to be there until 8:30! Erica Lynn McCann, Chris Chris VanSant, Ken Kotchenreuther!!!

Change in race directors seemed to hinder the promotion of this year's event resulting in a low turn-out, but our race support team provided the necessary expertise to ensure it was orchestrated smoothly! Thank you to the great team of Rick Albee, Tim O'Keefe, Erica Lynn McCann, Chris VanSant, and Ken Kotchenreuther for all coming out to produce results! It was great seeing Steeplechaser royalty Jim & Barb Lowry (creators of the Run for the Pie) out there along with the legendary Jim Becker! The 70 and over age group was stocked!

Christa Phillips Hannon

Are they looking to rent a house or an apartment?? When I first moved here I lived in the Apartments at Sunset up off of 7th street bear Safeway. I always felt safe there and they are very convenient to downtown (they also have a small gym, an outdoor pool, off street parking, washer/dryer in the unit).

There are a number of rentals available in downtown Frederick. How many bedrooms and what is her price range?

I seen you running this evening around the high school. I yelled run girl run.

See below for what I heard back from her. I would appreciate any suggestions as to where she can start looking. I feel like Goldilocks; an apartment is too small, a house it too big, a townhouse is just right. I don’t know if there are even very many townhouses in the downtown area, so that may be unrealistic. I just think I’ve outgrown an apartment, but there might be some that meet my criteria. In terms of size: ~1200-1500 sq ft 2 bedrooms (preferably also a study or 3rd small bedroom). 1.5 – 2 baths. Washer and dryer in unit Off street parking preferred First level so there is a way to step outside So, I think a townhouse is ideal for me (that’s what I live in now). But, I would consider an apartment or small house. I hope this helps and doesn’t make me difficult. I would just appreciate any leads on good management companies or private owners looking to rent.

To be fair, they totally warned us on our own Facebook page that a sellout would likely happen.

You snooze you looze. πŸ˜€

FYI: Next months GP race Spook Hill 4M has sold out in the past as well. The RD usually posts here to let us know when it is close to selling out, but it can't hurt to sign up if you are interested!

Comment on Facebook

I am not familiar with Frederick routes except the Baker Park 5k route. πŸ™‚ What type of terrain are you wanting/prefer? Hills no hills? Out and back or loop of sorts?

No hills if possible but I don't mind them. Loop preferred.

Road or trail?

Road: there's enough shoulder to be safe on 144 near spring ridge, there's also a golf course. Not sure where in Frederick you live.

I live in Spring Ridge. I thought about 144 but wasn't sure about the shoulder situation.

Hi Tony, this is a little ways out of Frederick but if you haven't, maybe check out the C&O canal or W&OD trail (Leesburg) for a nice weekend run πŸ™‚ I don't really know of a lot of good routes in Frederick but I'm still "new" here.

I ran this one a couple of weeks ago. It's 10, but you can easily extend with a loop around Baker Park in the middle there. www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/1747007093

Where is the best place to go and park to run on the C&O canal path? Thanks in advance. ... See MoreSee Less

 

Comment on Facebook

I like Point of Rocks. There's a big parking lot, and bathrooms.

Take New Design rd. south until it dead ends in a parking lot. There is a bathroom there also. Called Nolands Ferry.

Anywhere. But Point of Rocks is closest to DTF

Nolands Ferry is good.

I like Keep Tryst Road, but it's a little farther away.

Around Keep Tryst Rd/Harper's Ferry there are some good views of the river, and it's slightly less monotonous.

Point of Rocks, Brunswick, Nolands Ferry or you can look up the C&O on google and find other parking locations.

I run on the towpath a lot. My favorite spot to start is Noland's Ferry at the tail end of New Design Road. Head downstream and you cross the Monocacy Aqueduct (2.25 miles) for a beautiful view. Keep going another 2.75 miles and you'll pass a lock house at Lock 27, the Dickerson Power plant and kayak course and then down to Lock 26 to turn around. 10 miles round trip. If you run upstream you hit Point of Rocks at about 4 miles or so. If you go another 3ish miles you'll pass a lock house and eventually hit the Seneca Creek Aqueduct. 14 miles round trip.

Thank you everyone! It was a wet one out there. Point of Rocks this time.

I park at mile marker 69.5 three miles before shepherdstown and run opposite way of Harpers Ferry........towards Williamsport

Brunswick is nice, plenty of parking and easy walk into town for coffee or food. It's right at the train station.

Most parking? Brunswick wins hands down. POR is 2nd for parking and in my opinion the best location. It has good parking and good bathroom options. If you head from POR toward Lander you have access to 3 in under 5 miles. If you go POR towards MoCo, you have access to 3 in the first 5 miles.

I like point of rocks or Brunswick

Like others mentioned, Brunswick train station has plenty of parking especially on weekends. Even on week days when the commuters lot is almost full, you will find plenty of spots at the boats landing.

Here is a comprehensive list of all parking places a long the C&O www.canaltrust.org/plan/parking-along-the-co-canal-3/ You may find the newly released free app for the C&O canal useful for any activity along the canal. Here is a link for it on the App Store: C&O Canal Explorer by C&O Canal Trust itunes.apple.com/us/app/c-o-canal-explorer/id1242529905?mt=8

Ran across this picture this morning and had to come back to this thread. Taken from the Monocacy Aqueduct just after sunrise.

I think the "best" is the one nearest you. For me that's Noland's Ferry. I prefer Point of Rocks - bigger parking lot, better bathroom, northbound toward Brunswick has better river views, etc. Noland's Ferry has virtually no river views in either direction for miles except for the Aqueduct which lasts for approximately 60 seconds. Downside to Point of Rocks is that if you go far enough northbound you will pass the Brunswick sewage treatment plant on the left and that's the one spot on the canal path where you can actually encounter vehicle traffic (trucks). The prettiest route is from the Weverton Lock (via Keep Tryst road off 340) northbound toward Harper's Ferry. You get about 5 miles northbound in that direction of really pretty views. You also are more likely to see tourists and hikers in that stretch so it's a little less lonely feeling. (Don't go southbound toward Brunswick - it's an inland hall of forest). However it's pretty far out and takes me 30 minutes' drive each way so I usually don't go out there.

Shepherdstown is perfect! I live in Myersville so it's a little closer for me than Frederick but it's very scenic and it's not crowded but there are enough people to minimize any boredom! About 4-5 miles north is a little store at Snyder's Landing that's really cool and a fun place to get a snack in the summer!
