Weekly Recap: 9/19/2016 - 9/25/2016

This week it all came to a head.  Like a big old pimple.  I was re-living High School, the boys only paying attention to me for my friends...  

Anyhoodles, on with my weekly update....

Monday (0/6/0) - Wow what a day, it totally got away from me after Dave called, buying a new truck keeping the old one.  But that's neither here nor there, two car payments, again, after a 5 year break, kinda sucks....    Anyhoodles, I ran in to Mikey in the hallway, literal as he was walking distracted while I was walking distracted, collision in the gerbil tube.  He was lamenting he couldn't run till later, and hadn't run over the weekend and he couldn't take three days off and he didn't want to run in the rain.  I smiled.  I knew EXACTLY what I was looking forward to: 6 miles in the rain.  The usual calling of crazy ensued.  That IS a compliment, right?

The initial downpours were pretty strong, but I was out in the nice medium speed soft warm rain for a lovely 65, minutes, 5 minutes faster than I ran the same course on Friday.  Whoo hoo.  Totally loving the ON Cloud Cruisers, finally got the replacement shoes after a few months.  Nice company to deal with.  I believed them on the suggestion to order a 1/2 size larger than you normally do and they were way too big.  I went with my usual running shoe size and they still feel a little big I can wiggle my toes all around and that is rather lovely so I'll go with this size for now and see how they wear once I get a few hundred miles on them.

Soaking wet and very happy with this run.

The evening was spent dealing with vehicles and ignoring the dogs.  Jax was not pleased!  He was also not feeling well.  Probably had a little paper snack and this upset his tummy, but he had a funny cough, so neither of us were sure what was going on in the middle of the night, because no living thing ever feels that off during daylight hours so no one, but Gus slept well.  Well that's not entirely true, at 4 a.m. Jax decided he'd feel better if he slept in The Gus Hut and Gus was not in the mood to share, so he slept where Jax usually sleeps, on me.

Dave learning how to take selfies

He likes the first one better


Tuesday (0/0/0) - NYC for the day.  Dress, heels, and not much outside time made me a little stiff and bloated and cranky...  that and the lack of sleep due to my 'family' and having to get up early...


Dave took the pups for an adventure and they seemed fine, ok so maybe this was just a little blip with Jax.  We are on pins and needles worrying that he is going to get cancer like Diesel, yet doing everything we can to enjoy every day with both of them.


The rock pile is an interesting story.  Quite a nifty machine!


Wednesday (0/8/0) - My first double run.  5 grueling miles in the heat, is summer ever going to end??  I nearly turned back and made it a 3 mile run and said the hell with it.  My beer gut giggled and I knew I needed to keep on keeping on.  Christ, why is it so easy to gain weight and so hard to lose it?  Well I've only really been at this a week and I haven't been trying very hard, but still...  The second run was the Stavros Memorial Race at the Westerly Town Beach, 3 miles.  This was the 23rd year and the 23rd anniversary of Charlie Stavros death during a race, probably a blood clot.  Those buggers get so many people, terrifying, actually.  To die during a race.  I know we've all felt like it.  I pushed the pace, for me, for barefoot on the sand.  It felt good and nothing hurt while I was running, my calves, well as the night progressed they may tell a different story.


I've been bugging Dave about a Mountain bike.  I'm ready to ride trails again, I have the confidence I needed to get back out there after a long hiatus.  He said I could with my ancient mountain bike, but let him talk to a few of the guys and see what they think.  So looks like I'm in the market for a 29" hard tail, with 3" tires.  Yippieee!!

Thursday (3.6/0/0) -  Ok so I got in a dog walk...  ok two, the faces break my heart.  I walked them together!!  I couldn't face leaving one alone and walking the other and reversing the process. Skipping to the punch line: They were excellent. They figured out someone was going on a walk as I muttered, where is my damn watch.  Jax started his spinning in wild circles and Gus started his pout. They are so very different.  I put the harness on Gus he was all WHOOP! I'm DA DOG!!! and strutted around.  Jax looked on the brink of tears.  I put the harness on him and he was spinning so fast he spun the harness off!!  So we had to repeat the process and get it on correctly.  Off we went, me thinking I am going to regret this.  They were good, a couple quick reprimands and they focused on walking and not being annoying.

I can enjoy my beer in peace!

Friday (5.8/1.8/0)  - Tuesday with Faith became Friday with Faith because of me being in NY.  She was off on Fri and I worked at home so we met at the Westerly Y for a 5 mile run with a HUGE HILL ending mile 2.  That got a little turned around as we made a quick detour to my house, Jax needed to slobber on a new person.  He did exactly that and we skedaddled on to our appointed route.  Damn it is hard to get back to running.  My breathing is all over the place and my form is off.  Faith was in it for the company not speed.  THANK YOU!!!  I plodded along nearly on death's door and she chattered endlessly, THANK YOU!!  Mostly kept my mind off the gasping for breath and the fat jiggling.  It was a warm run, we walked a couple times and ended with a walk, over all 11:28 pace with walking nearly a mile of it - Faith had 11 so I'm good with that. I have to be, it is what it is at this point.


Saturday (8/0/0) - Westerly Heart Walk kicked off the day.  5 miles in scenic Watch Hill.  I signed up with my Physical Therapy group and enjoyed a nice 5 mile walk with another woman who was on her second hip replacement, well they were replacing parts, she was 57, holy crap.  She kept up a good pace and chattered the whole time and I was relieved.  I wasn't in a chatty mood and really suck at chatter with strangers.  People who know me, well they know me and kind of expect the unexpected to come out of my mouth, people who don't, well I think this is an off putting trait.  My filter is broken.


Took the boyz for another double walk and while that had it's challenges it was good.  An hour massage to work out more of the kinks in my legs and back, still not there, yet.  And my day was pretty much over.  Quite content to call it a day and flip on the TV, a rarity for me and catch up on recorded shows, Gotham and Blindspot, and binge watch Vikings!

Sunday (0/4/0) - The test drive of the Stashe Mountain Bike doesn't actually count as biking, but I was on a bike and it was FUN!!!  NBX has a nice little course, and I mean little, to test the bikes on.  It felt good and comfortable and it only took a second to remember how to shift the mountain bike versus a road bike.  Weird with such a wide handle bar and front shocks and big tires.  Thinking there will be one of these parked in the dining room soon.   I want to be out on the trails, and this will get me there until when my  hip can't.  

Took the boyz out for an evening constitutional to wrap up the week.

Mileage:

Feet:  37.2 for a total of 1,313.8 against a yearly total of 1,482.2
Saddle:  0 for a total of 1,247.8 against a yearly total of 1,482.2

Sincerely,
Beth, happy the harassment has ended.

Hey Beth, What's going on with your Blog?

Michael Weinberg, stop, stop now.   Or maybe read on and see what's happened the last nearly 10 months...  Really, stop commenting on my blog and leave MY friend alone.  

Enough.

To the rest of my readers - 

As many people who have known me a long time will say "She has the patience of a saint, until she doesn't."

In the event you were tuning in to this drama recently, and missed the previous episodes...  Here they are, enjoy a good binge.  I changed names to initials, well MOST names, the object of Michael Weinberg's desire and those associated with her, since I also know most of them and they wouldn't appreciate getting dragged into the miasma as I have been. Oh yeah and a few innocents who really don't need to get mixed up in this mess, because really who needs to deal with one more annoyance?

And this is how it started.  I had no idea who the hell this girl (we will call her ML)  was, I ignored things for a bit, and deleted some comments and marked some as spam and this seemed to tick off Michael Weinberg...

Have fun, I admit I have not read every word, it was beginning to feel like reading Cooper and I never could get into him.  As much as it pained me I didn't correct grammar, spelling, or punctuation.  I know I'm not perfect at these things either...

Bad news Beth! Current NH runner of the year ML is pregnant and very upset. There has been very consistent daily screaming and barking episodes between her and her dog Spot. She has no outlets at this point and her Doctor told her she can't run. We really need the running community to support her and her baby. A phone call to ML ASAP would be greatly appreciated. Take care and hope everything is going well.

Indeed, you can never reap enough data, especially about New Hampshire! I can relate with you because even THE REAPER gets warm and fuzzy about NH data. Yup, I guess we all have a soft side. I hate to admit it. Yes I love NH runners, maybe, maybe not. You never worry though as Rhode Island people are actually cool. It's those mountain people.

I know who Danger Girl refers to, this freaked me out a bit because of her history, and who the hell is this ML? Is this about Danger Girl or is this about ML? WTF

THE REAPER has left a new comment on your post "Three Things Thursday":

Definition of Dangergirl- 1. An actual fast GIRLY GIRL runner who considers breaking a nail extreme danger. 2. A runner who most recently BABYSAT my love ML through a workout and I owe her 30 dollars because ML has been a bit of pain lately!

THE REAPER has left a new comment on your post "Three Things Thursday":

Yup! ML is certainly a brat and a pain after all. BUT SHE IS MY PROPERTY. This is the thing. I worked my bum off for years and won many road races in the past and future coming. When a MAN wins races he gets the woman he desires.Thus, ML is my very, very sweet and precious lil Bitch, MY PROPERTY! And if any feminist groups have a problem with that then they can wash my sweaty running clothes because we're talking about MY KITTEN so shove it!

And guess what Bethie, I obey laws but if they allowed stalking I would stalk ML for the REST OF HER LIFE, 24 7. I would consider THE GREATEST JOB IN THE WORLD! So there! But, I obey laws and I will not stalk her.

Feb 7, 2016  
I figured out WHO ML is and let her know about this, I was getting a little disturbed. She was quite nice about the whole thing and really seemed like a person I wanted to get to know.  But how in the HELL did he think we were even remotely connected?

 THE REAPER has left a new comment on your post "Three Things Thursday":

Hey Bethie! ML thinks that I am going to Crack and make a comment on her blog. Nope. I have an MD in cat and mouse so let her know that I AM HER MASTER AND WE'RE PLAYING MY GAME, MY ML! I ENJOY PLAYING WITH WITH HER MOST VERY SWEET LIL FOOLISH MIND. It's been one hell of a ride let me tell ya!

I don't even know what to do anymore Bethie Sweet Pooh. A lot of people are telling me to just go and get her GOOD because she deserves it. My 16 year old Daughter who is a socialite even recommends it and I am not kidding. What to do? I just don't want to be an old man one day and tell my Grandchildren that I was too scared to spend a few days in the slammer when I could surprise the hell out of when she least expects it at my favorite time of the day which would be midnight. When I am breathing my last breathes I want the satisfaction of knowing THAT I HAVE ACTUALLY LIVED WHILE ON THIS EARTH!

BETH! I actually thought you were all sweet because your blog shows you running away from the screen and KNITTING which is actually very nice and feminine. So guess what? I DON'T WANT TO SEE ANY ALCOHOL ADVERTISEMENTS OR ALCOHOL TALK ON YOUR BLOG ANYMORE.I am here to clean things up and make people run faster through my holistic morals and values. I truly believe it is the only way to go. YOU MUST LISTEN. IF YOU TRICK ME ANYMORE AND POST ANYMORE STUFF ABOUT ALCOHOL THEN JUST MAYBE I WILL GET ML JUST FOR YOU BABY SO YOU BETTER CLEAN THINGS UP IF YOU LIKE HER. ML WOULD CERTAINLY HOPE YOU WOULD. I thought we were friends but when I looked deeper into your blog I saw more beer talk than knitting. We're not friends anymore BETH. Another words, THESE ROADS ARE MINE! Guess what too, If you check out on coolrunning the results for Mystic runners Lake Q recent results this past wednesday in Wakefield Ma on coolrunning I got 2nd place. I DON'T FOOL AROUND LADY AND I NEVER, NEVER, NEVER DRINK BEER. FULL COOPERATION IS YOUR ONLY CHOICE! I DEMAND IT!

Step right up and don’t be shy
Because you will not believe your eyes
She’s right here behind the glass
And you’re gonna like her,
Cause she’s got class
You can look inside another blogger’s world
You get to talk to a pretty girl
She’s everything you dream about
BUT DON’T FALL IN LOVE

She’s a beauty
One in a millon blogs
She’s a beauty
Why would I lie?
Why would I lie?

So Beth, I hope you and your husband are doing great. Just having a lil innocent fun. Nothing less, nothing more. Back in high school in Webster, MA my friend Arthur and I got extremely lucky and had our own show at Nichols College in Dudley, MA,WNRC 97.5FM a couple times a week for a couple years and it was Funnnnnnnnn! Arty the one man Party and Crazy George. Arty screwed it all up. He started hanging out with these really loser chicks. I could not stand them. I started hanging out with them and being extremely cautious because there was one that seemed interesting. Well we lost the show because he got really depressed when the girl he actually went out with dumped him. I lost money because the girl Deb Para who I thought liked me asked me to her Shepherd Hill Prom so I went and I thought she liked me but when I called her the next day she ignored me and that was that. But she screwed it all up because because this really sweet girl named Bonnie Webster, a nice, nice, girl who graduated with me at Bartlett totally shocked me when she asked me to go to our own senior prom but my mom said no because we just didn't have the money, and we didn't. I had no idea Bonnie wanted to go out with me because I picked on her for 8 years, ripped up a lot of her homework for the fun of it,,threw all her lunch coins around the classroom floor and told her now eat, dumped her books all the time, dumped her desk, sent her threatening notes, called her names, beat up her brother quite a few times,Joe Webster, who actually runs road races on the cape. God, this went on for 8 years. She was in front of me in class because of our last names. I would write her a note asking her to go out with me and stated that she had the right to say no but if she told anyone that she denied me their would be real consequences. She always said no. She scratched my arms a few times pretty good and stabbed me with a pencil once. I still have the graphite in my face and you can see it more every year, very visible,and I am actually thinking about getting it removed because of that reason. That's all she did though in those 8 years. I dominated the years totally just by all the stuff I broke of hers alone when I would dump her belongings on the floor.

Actually now that I'm writing all of this down it makes me feel bad. I never hit her or swore at her though. She ain't doing that great though I heard and I haven't talked to her in years but her facebook page says something like trying to survive another day or something like that. She's in New York. Swear to God, true story. I am actually too scared to talk to her but would love to. I have never had the courage to contact her but years ago she contacted a friend of mine while I was in the hospital and said she wanted to see me. I hope she lives happy forever. Arthur screwed up that show totally.

CORRECTION! Facebook Bonnie Webster, Oceanside New York, it says something like "friendly and nice, been told I am a survivor we'll see". Well I certainly did a number on her and me just staying away from her is probably the nicest gift I could ever give her. I really pray for her! Go Bonnie!

Also, it's just good to let everyone know I am definately not mean. I never touched a lady nor ever even swore at one and I dated a fair amount while having utmost respect for the soul. I lived with nuns for 3 years after college at Nazareth home, only dude there besides the Priest, and all the summers with my family were sent in Bethlehem and Franconia New Hampshire and selling my baseball cards at the town common flea market in Bethlehem while glaring at the mountains and then going back to Franstead campground in Franconia playing basketball and running. We were gypsies. Unfortunately, even though my Daughter Katherine aced her SATS and is captain of the Shepherd hill math team she lived in a camper this whole summer with her girlfriend way in the woods, we met up many times though, she sleeps over when she isn't working 40 hours at KFC in webster, ma, we get along great, while I spent days hiking the trails around New England for miles upon miles and doing speed work 2×week to keep the running dream alive but every day it is getting darker and darker and darker and the hikes are shorter and shorter and shorter and I don't want to get myself in trouble so bye for a while. Family had 3 cats growing up and there names were Gypsy, Gypsy, and Gypsy. By the way Beth one of the best ways to clear up your injury is hiking! It was a tough summer as 3 hikes ended in disaster because I am allergic to hornets and got really, really sick eating rasberries. One of my favorite things is going off trail to find berries and grapes and I spent the whole night lost in the woods with nothing. Morning was a blessing. I had bug spray, the best, no food nor water. I push it to the extremes out there sometimes purposely getting lost. UNBELIEVABLE HIGH!(UUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRR, WHAT DID YOU GET YOURSELF INTO MIKE??? A telephone, watch, or compass, or anything electronic is considered by me trash! I love my 2 epipen. Take care!

Oh 1 more thing and then I will blog back until October 8th. ML does not believe in forgiveness. When you google my name and Worcester I feel ashamed and it bothers me all the time and she will not take it down even though I stopped blogging for months?????I accept that. I am not a mean or vindictive person like her. I was nice and warned her that if she keeps drinking she will get sick and run slower. I DON'T WANT HER TO EVER GET SICK but slowing down is sweet!. Her dangerous behavior has got her slower marathons, Boston 3:06, Vermont 3:07, and her new tattoo on her arm which I now find very appealing 8 trees. Well Hartford marathon soon 3:08! So when your training for this marathon ML please think of me cause for 26.2 miles my spirit will DOMINATE YOU! Ha Ha Ha! If you take down the picture of you with the gun and my name on it I will stop ML. Swear to God! I don't believe in guns nor violence. Also on your blog could you please stop saying the F Word it really isn't cool. Enjoy your 3:08 and remember there is room for change,ha ha ha!

Why am I so upset. Because this girl named DB, now DBS who I dated off and on at Anna Maria College in Paxton, MA went on ML's old trashing section on me and made a comment. I saw DB for 3 years. I basically lived on campus for 7 years and worked at the Xmas tree shop in Shrewsbury MA for 7 years and dated about 1,000 chics I am not lying. I was not running nor hiking. I was depressed. Please tell her to take it down Beth. Please Beth. I stopped blogging for 5 months but when I saw that it hurtttttt. I don't even like blogging anymore! I want to live my life. Pleasssssssss! I would tell DB to go jump in a lake but she is in Austin,Texas, and I do not want to be hauled over there so I bite my lip. What a cheap shot. 18 years and no forgiveness for that one. I had so many girlfriends at the Christmas Tree Shop that I was actually bringing them back to Anna Maria and giving them away. 99.99% are still my friends. I would take the college girls shopping at the tree cause I got a 20% discount. Trust me. Everything wasn't as wild as this girl states. Thanks!

I am sorry that I offended you in the first place ML. My reputation is peanuts now. It hurts. Please end this ML. I hurt. You know what, I ain't even going to blog anymore because you hurtttttt me soon much. I would never put up anything permanent about you. Never. I am sorry I hurt you ML, please forgive me. I don't cause trouble on blogs anymore ML. Have I? I want this to end ML. It just cracked me ML and I was doing so well and I just don't want it to make anyone unhealthy or depressed, you or me ML, please, begging. This is not me.

Definately done. Don't want to be foolish again. Tired. Only wish the best for her.

I am truly sorry ML. I do deserve the punishment. I will accept it, always will. Only the best, bye.

Well Beth, I am sorry your weekly blog is getting boring. Things are starting to get a little boring and frustrating for me to. This summer I was doing speed work on a rail trail and I met this really sweet,cute, and pretty member of the Central Mass Striders. It was really great times but for only 3 days. I miss this girl bad and I want her back! ML's blog info ruined a relationship because I had difficulty telling the girl my true name. ML punished me good. I guess I deserve it. I have not seen this girl since. I will probably end up going crazy. Maybe I deserve it. I hurt, swear to God! I am getting my punishment. I deserve it. True story, I would say it over my parents grave.

Believe me the best recipe for meeting the chics on the rail trails is speed work. When I go out there and run a 5:00 mile and blow by these chicks with a sweet lil subtle smile then die jogging in place for a lil, then repeat. Well at the end of the path when I am already stretching my hamstrings sitting on the ground I just pray to God that an Angel will arrive soon and initiate conversation. It worked for years but I don't have confidence anymore. Nowhere to Run, Nowhere to hide! Nothing I can do will repair this. By the way my best event in high school was the 400. I have won over a hundred road races in my life but never even attempted a marathon. Never will. No patience for that. I save my heartbeats, only so many, but everyone is sacred and beats life let me tell you.I love 5k endorphins. I deserve what ML did. No one ever got me that good. Put me in a standstill. I deserve it. She's enduring. Never experienced this.

Beth, I need some help here. This summer I met another CMS runner at the trails. This girl is so very cute and so very pretty and I WAS AFRAID TO TELL HER MY NAME. I don't know much about her even though we talked for a long time. In fact we were actually going to go on a run before I just got disgusted about what ML did to me so I just left. Days before I actually started talking to her I ran past her pretty fast and she yelled "showoff" and when I finished and started jogging back she gave me a sweet smile. A couple weeks later I saw her and she came up to me and the cute lil thing was just blabbing away and she told me that she ran the ( the clue) CMS once a year members only race recently she was telling me and hurt herself so bad that I believe the ambulance came and I felt really bad because she is just the cutest most innocent thing that I have ever seen. I told her she needs to take care of herself better and get rest so the injury heals right and she gave me this look that I thought was so cute. She is a really special girl and I haven't seen her at the trails. ML's punishment worked great because I was afraid to tell her my name and races I ran. Few days ago I almost, almost went on ML's blog which I am not allowed to do and almost told her because this is a rough punishment ML should at least meet me at a pub or tavern in the mountains once a week for the rest of my life and I would buy her food and drinks and that would be fair if she wants to keep the stupid thing up. I respect her, if she wanted a few hugs or kisses after a lil hike at night it would be nice. But if she didn't that would be fine too. I respect the soul. She wouldn't need that nightlight device to see in the dark. I would treat her sweet and light up her life! She wouldn't need the 3 pups cause I would protect her. She may not have a choice soon because I am starting to feel her punishment may not fit the crime.

Forever, trust me! No where to run, no where to hide. I won't need another girl. My birthday is January 1st. You taking it down by then would be a nice present. You not taking it down will be a nice present. I am giving you time to think. Bye ML! See you next year, possibly. I got tired.

So Beth, hope you and your husband are doing well, so I just want you and everyone to know that swear to God on my Daughter's life I would never be mean to ML or even swear at her. Today I actually had a great day, the sun came out later and I hit the rail trail in Rutland Ma for a nice 6 miles at 7:30 pace. You guys should hike Hopeville State Park in ct, not bad, I forget the name of the first trail but then it hits the Quinebaug then I turned back. OK, so on my birthday which is new years, yes I was the first baby born in southern worcester county and yes I won a lot of stuff!, I am going to go on ML's blog if she hasn't taken down the stuff and tell her how I feel that it's not that fair. Now she may call the police and get a restraining order on me. Well that will actually make me extremely scared and it really will swear to God but who cares when your life is ruined anyhow. So then 2 weeks later I am probably going to go to her house and knock on her door and just ask for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. If she says no fine, I will leave. But Beth do you think she would actually shoot me? If she did shoot me would she even try to help save me? It's scary to think about. I know she is an atheist she declares. Would she even be sad? Why doesn't she just take the bologna down and avoid me getting hurt or arrested. I would not hurt her. If she started crying and said I was scaring her because I knocked on her door I would leave and get off her property, because I don't like to make people sad. A lil pissed off sometimes but not sad.

Hey ML, yup, googled myself and Worcester and I look like and I don't like using this phrase but "a retarded fool". So ML January 1st, my birthday, I am probably going to run the CMS FREEZER 5 MILE RACE in Sterling , Ma, then I am going back to my house and take a nap, eat, shower, then your house. I will knock on your door and I want you to hand me over a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in a brown bag and I will eat it in my car then leave. I don't want to get shot by you and I don't want to waste the police resources. They have more important things to do than worry about this situation. I will come in peace,and leave in peace. Don't get me arrested on my birthday please. Your my Soulmate ML. I love you like I never loved a women before. When where together you can drink all the beer you want because I know in my heart that I can't change you. And I have given up control. But if your going to destroy me like you have been I am sorry your going to be my woman forever. Your a keeper. I WILL NEVER LET GO OF YOU ML. When Jan 1st comes, you may never be alone again. By the way I don't want you to think I date woman just to blah them. That is not me and I actually have chosen to refrain from that activity the last 12 years. Swear to God. You know absolutely nothing about me ML. You just enjoy turning a really nice guy into meanie. I am really tired of writing to . Just have the sandwich ready. I will have some flowers for ya. Maybe even a stuffie. You say you don't like bears and all that stuff but then you had a doll on the bed in one of your blog posts. It was cute! Bye, I love you ML! Hugs and kissies! Been a long time, you are a good girl ML.

Well, one day when I have my arm around ML's body and she's singing to the stars feeling her very first glimpse of heaven because she is with a man that actually loves her for who she is, that will be pretty exciting! The only boring is those long arduous trips from New Hampshire to Rhode Island to hang with guys like RJ setting up races designed for ML specialty and H (who the hell is this guy, actually sounds like the best bar drinking name of a person to drink with at a bar and it drives me crazy, I think she enjoys saying his name ) and going boating alone in the ocean trying to impress people because M's house was empty and my princess didn't know what to do with herself. I don't mind when she sits near the seemingly invincible G, as he's cool. ML Baby, I will shut up. You can drink all you want and you can run the show. There will be a show to run by January 1st I believe.

Excuse me, RJ's all right. Good guy. I was looking at trail races this year and he had a good one and he offered a beautiful trail race in Rhode Island which was pretty long but what was very intriguing about it and wonderful was that it was actually very AFFORDABLE. Now I was thinking about going to this race because let's face it it is almost impossible to find a trail race like that around for that price but of course guess who was going to be there? And I don't like awkward situations and I just did the best thing and didn't go. I bet you even RJ wishes she would just take it down. I bet you a lot of people have even told her. She doesn't care. She says stuff on her blog like I was so drunk I don't even remember the night. She doesn't know if her parents could be reading her blog. I check up on my Daughter and if I see something she puts up and I feel it's negative we have a fair talk, and she usually listens. Just being a parent. I am fairly liberal believe me. Believe me. I always got her to go on hikes with me. But now she is so busy. I would buy a pack of sour patch kids and a pack of Swedish fish and would tell her that once we hit the turnaround both the boxes were hers. First I wouldn't get any candy as we were hiking back but then she would start getting in a good mood and start dispersing them to me but on each hike you never knew what to expect because sometimes I would only get a couple and she would take the boxes home and I always had this feeling that her mom got to that candy and really enjoyed every fish and sour patch. Take it down ML. I thought I could joke with you because ambulance workers are nice and you were a bartender once and they usually just listen to people, and you worked for Starbucks and put up with goons concerned about small problems with there coffee. You have small dogs which are cute and loveable. You don't like big mean dogs. You like happy stickers on your truck. You seem like a really nice person. I sometimes wonder about you though because you like to go onto trails with your ambulance uniform and have people think your the police. You said you did it once but maybe you like doing that. You may love controlling people and hide it oh so well. You probably tell people that your keeping it up for general safety issues for you and others. 99.9% of people probably believe you and then you have a good laugh to yourself. But I am not stupid and I will never give up and when you take so much from a person you got to give back more. And I believe me coming up and looking you in the eye is the right thing to do. If you get scared and start crying I will leave so don't worry about anything ML. I am not going to hurt you. But I will be back a week later. It's going to be really cold in January and I drive a white Hyundai accent and it really isn't that great of a car for mountainous terrain. It's going to be really cold and icy and dark and I don't want a scene or to get arrested. I want the sandwich and I will exchange the gifts. I will eat the sandwich in my car and leave and then I will be back and if it isn't taken down by then I would like a peanut butter sandwich and a glass of milk a week later. I will have some sweet gift and return the glass when finished. Remember I am going for a run or race most likely in the morning to relieve tension and my legs are sure going to be tight and tired from maneuvering my car on hilly icey roads and of course the cold. It is really going to be the adventure of a lifetime bacause I will not know what to expect. I am up for it though. One life to live and I will never be old and have regrets.So please have a small bit of compassion and cooperate please. I don't want to be tired from running, have sore legs, get arrested, be scared the whole night in jail and probably have a seizure or something worse, shot by you. Your a Healthcare worker who has done a boatload of harm to me so please maybe be nice.

Well I just read her blog and she seems a little stressed out and I don't like to see her that way so I will give her a break. I will be back Saturday. She is talking about scary stuff and I am not here to make her paranoid. Actually scares me. Hopefully this will work out because eventually she will see something that she hasn't seen before. No worries, way down the line, possible. I am a patient man. Good night and oh God Bless. This is very real. By the way, she's lookin prettier than ever and I am giving her a break for a couple days because she is a great Mom. I don't consider myself a freak. Just different which is good and I like to make things fair. Take care

One more thing, if she calls me that freak from Worcester again on her blog,then I am going on her blog and going to make only ONE statement that says, "That isn't very nice ML." I would never hurt ML because she's a woman. Love her to death.I am not going to dominate her blog. That is fair, 6ft and bulletproof for life! That's the only thing I know, true survivalist. She date's me no one will ever bother her again I will promise her that. My Daughter won't let me meet her boyfriends. I have a nice talk with them, sometimes I like to tell them stories from my past and how well this guy named Shahram did when he messed with my woman. He didn't do very well at all Beth. Took 8 cops to get me off that boy. SWEAR TO GOD, it was in the paper over 20 years ago. Hellraiser Sister!

Yup, Cyn she met this Muslim guy about a year before she met me in college and got raped and brutalized by him. Well we started dating and she got pregnant and while pregnant she was having flashbacks about that moron and miscarried. Went to court and tried pressing charges and had no luck. I took justice into my own hands and about a week later I was no longer a criminal justice major, no chance, forced out. Became a social work major and things have been great since as long as my Daughter dates nerdy guys which I like.

Have only 1 fear! Hiked thousands of miles. Hiked up mountains but never ever made it to the top of one ever during daylight. Once the trees disappear during daylight I disappear! At night when it's pitch black and dangerous during the winter I am at my best. Years ago I ran in a road race and had a commanding lead only to walk away because that damn bridge looked too high and the endorphins couldn't compensate for my general fear of heights and agoraphobia.

Sorry,I quit. Leave me alone ML and please don't get me in trouble with the police. I don't want to get in trouble. Now I'm just going to sleep and minding my own business. Please forgive me. It's just hard to get it out of my mind that when you google my name and Worcester, It's embarrassing and well I could probably get attacked someday WHEN I AM OLDER because of it. Sorry, I quit!

Guess what? True story ask the man. This summer during a nasty thunderstorm, when I am at my best,nearing darkness while traveling on a very dark and whindy wooded road there was a huge tree down across the whole road. I saw it and luckily braked in time. Well I turned my car around and incessantly cautioned the next driver because it would have been ugly. That driver happened to be the President of the Central Mass Striders to my surprise who was traveling at a pretty fair rate. ML, please ask the President. Would you take down your blog about me because of this good deed. True story. I also got hit by a car once trying to save a snapping turtle and I was hurt and the car drove off. True story. Please think about the nice things I do. I am on the bone marrow registry. I give blood and at the same time I don't accept the Cross's food nor gifts. If you were my girlfriend I would let you drink as much as you wanted because in my heart I do know that I don't have any control over another person's fate. You don't have to be my girlfriend, but I admit I have a peaceful crush on you that is only innocent. My true only power is to only ask you to consider taking it down and let me be free. I am letting you go. It hurts what is written about me. Peace

Most important. Hey ML. You know this. After your divorce you reunited with your love for running and ran your best ever and felt a freedom that you never probably felt in your life.You were your fastest and you were free. NH runner of the year. Got injured and when that happens a runner who rises so fast usually recovers and runs a fair amount or even more faster. I hit on you pretty hard on your blog which was wrong. Your mistake was when you sent me those sexual degrading emails to me. Whether you know it or not when you had your most freedom in life to heal and recover for the best and fastest of what was yet to come you opened up your soul to me. Yes, ML, though not physical you gave your spiritual soul to me just before you were ready to have your greatest run and it is very true. You may never believe it. Some would. You may never see a fast marathon like your 2:55. Trust me ML, Hartford won't even be close. You will continue too see fast short races for a while as your anger will continue to grow. Anger adds no benefit to the marathon and health and endurance. You gave yourself to me when you were your best. It was your way of expressing love to me. It was a pleasure and the greatest of gifts. I truly loved it. I hope I gave something back to you. I believe I did. It just wasn't take take. I glared into those mountains while on the town common in Bethlehem, NH, the highest town in the Northeast all the years growing up while selling my baseball cards for years there. Old ones would remember me. Had the time of my life as that was the only time my alcoholic parents stayed away from it. I had clarity. I have a million pictures to prove it.Yes I had visions. I believe you gave yourself to me when the best was yet to come. Sorry, time will tell through the years, bye

I'm at peace Beth but let me tell you that tree that fell straight across the road, well, it was huge! A bicycle could not make it across. Just missed me by a little. It was getting dark and oooohhhh. My kind of road, no lights, best rural road that my vicinity has to offer. I don't think he believed me at first but it was a monster. God, he inspected it, though.He wasn't driving that fast but it wasn't going to move. Not saying I saved his life but small destraction is all it would have taken because the guy across the tree had his lights on and not good.Descent storm, hoping we get a great hurricane this year that hits the Cape for an adventure. I like to see a lot of destruction of material things, makes you stronger, but hate to see anyone get hurt. Again, dangerous road to run on. I believe it's reservoir rd.,Worcester to Holden, cars fly and sometimes the embankment is so high that when cars come you pray and if you got the legs still and it's not a semi, high jump is your best option. I always keep that in mind. 15 years from now, not an option. Stay safe!

I am sorry Beth about all this meandering but I haven't been the same since my Brother Matt died a few years back. You have not seen nothing like this guy. He did great in the Marines but when he got out it was hell. He was a monster. He actually had the former head of the Northampton, Ma Veterans Association as his guide for many years. His name was Bob. Great guy. He basically lived with Bob. Tried committing suicide many times, jumped from the Connecticut river bridge once in Northampton. He was a mess but he was fine. Activities in the Marines were beating up his drill instructor and Navy Seals that were sometimes on his boat. Ask Bob. Drank diesel gasoline for it's alcohol content. Bench Press 510 lbs, but took lots of steroids. He was bigger and taller than me.Never watched me run in a race. Seeing me win wasn't going to happen. Known to this day in the most liberal city in Massachusetts as the guy who was handed paraphernalia from peace happy people on the streets and ripped it up in their face. It was embarrassing because I believe in peace and he would get very angry at me. Last time I ever saw him was at a Christmas church supper that went very wrong in New Hampshire and he got extremely mad at me because I was searching around for clean utensils and I got so scared so I ran about a mile to my car and that was the last time I ever talked to him or saw him again. I got some scary messages on my phone that was for sure. He called me a Sardine. He made me have a bumper sticker on my car 15 years after he got out of the Marines that said" My Brother is a Marine." One time he liked this girl and the girls boyfriend didn't like him and 3 guys with bats did a number on my Brother and broke his leg. He never told me who they were. He got each and everyone of them back and to this day I believe the city of Northampton, Ma covered it up. True story. Bob had power believe me and Matt was his boy. Matt could do no wrong even though the swat team was at his house on 2 different occassions. Kennedys were over Bob's house a lot. Me and Bob didn't get along because I thought Matt should have lived more independently. When he lived in the woods he was strong, but once he got that apartment and his cat died that was it. The cat is buried right off the Northampton rail trail where Bob told me Matt laid him to rest. I ride there on the rail and always wonder where the cat is haha, because The cat survived as a stray for a couple years in Rutland when I lived there and this lady fed Kevin and she told me to bring Kevin to my Brother. Take care, I am done writing for a long, long, long,long,long,long,long time. Your blog is yours Beth, take care,swear to God on my Daughter's life!

One more thing cause I forgot when .I finished up a second ago. The last time I saw him we walked from Bob Cahillane's house to main street and he carried this huge bottle of beer. A huge bottle for the WHOLE CITY OF NORTHAMPTON MA TO SEE AND HE DRANK THAT BOTTLE IN THE OPEN DOWN MAIN STREET AND COPS SAW IT AND THAT'S NORTHAMPTON,MA WHERE IT'S SO FUCKIN LIBERAL NO ONE CARES IF YOU DIE! HE WAS PROUD. I HATE THAT TOWN LIKE NO OTHER. I WASN'T JUST ABOUT UTENSILS. I DROVE ALL THE WAY FROM RUTLAND, MA AND HE COULD NOT RESPECT THAT. MY FATHER WAS NEVER PROUD to be alcoholic.

Update Beth and emergency conditions! This storm is too powerful. It's too cold. My wiper blade just fell off. I am screwed. I am tired. The wind almost drove my car in the woods and now I am in a ditch stuck thinking. There is snow everywhere. No one to talk to. I am getting thirsty and hungry. The hike is short though it could end in disaster. I will stay in my car tonite till midnight exactly when I am at my best and when I google my name and address, well if it is still up, I am going on Evil Nature's blog who controls my fate and for some reason I believe this storm will end up consuming me and recovery will be slow. I will survive sure, but I will be too weak to survive the big one which will come in less than 20 years I promise. I will be directly in her eye. I want more than a tainted peanut and jelly sandwich. I am thirsty. I have never celebrated something like this. That night could be the first night I have a drink in 20 years. True story. She drove me monkey bananas,true story.

Listen. True story. And I want the police to know this. The beer flowed from that sky and it was too much. It drenched me and pored into my mouth. Honest to God I would never hurt ML. I love her. I cannot challenge evil Nature and her elements. I know I cannot change the forecast.I am no match for her. I give up. She will never back down officers. She will end up killing me. She will survive, of course, as I would be way to scared to venture into New Hampshire. If I got hurt the ambulance would be a mobile horror train for me even just vacationing in the vicinity. I will never look into my storm's eye in court though.She was put on this earth to completely abolish my mind. She was never afraid of me. I am more afraid of her, but I admit I Love ML. Officers please let me go on her blog once and I just want to call her a "Sweet Lil Bitch" once and then I promise to stop going on her blog forever. I am going to do that right this minute. Just let me do it just this once. When you are in the middle of a storm it is just natural and that will be the end officers. I promise. I don't want to get in trouble with the court's and stuff but when you google my name and Worcester I look like a fool. So I am going on her blog and leaving her that one stinky message. Please forgive me officers. I am sorry.

We better be lovers, we'll marry our fortunes together
I've got some really sticky tape here in my bag

So we bought a pack of gummy bears and Mrs. Beth Smith's crummy apple pies
And we ran off to look for tranquility
"ML", I said as we boarded my Hyundai in Albany
Worcester seems like a place I don't want to be in now
It took me 4 days to find you on heavenly hill
I've found ML
Laughing, screaming, and crying in the hyundai
Playing games with the faces,
She said the man in the gabardine suit was a state trooper
I said be very, very, very careful
His bow tie is really a crumpled up kleenex

Toss me a cliff bar
I think there's one in my bulletproof vest
I chowed the last one an hour ago

So I looked at the scenery
She read her last rites
And the moon rose over an open grave

"ML, I found myself I said
Though I knew she was sleeping

I'm Mohegan Sun full of life and as loose as a goose and I know why

Counting the state troopers on the New Hampshire Turnpike
They've all come
To look for ML
All come to look for ML
All come to look for ML

Hey
ML, could you make it so you can't get any comments on your blog for a long time. Because, I know I wouldn't do it but the thought alone makes me cringe with embarrassment and I don't want to go on your blog and tell you how we are going to do things and get all steamy and bossy. I KNOW I WOULD NEVER DO IT BUT THE THOUGHT MAKES ME CRINGE WITH EMBARRASSMENT. Please just take down my name and address from your blog Barefoot now. Though I know I wouldn't do it, there is a chance I may totally, totally school you. It would be your fault. Yes ML, however, really sweet and most gentle. You won't know what hit you and your blog. Sorry, also if I do it please quiet your mouth about it and everything will be fine even if you keep the blog up for a while. People will think you actually are bragging and nobody is making to many comments anymore on your blog anyhow. True Story. I will be gentle. Promise. No one cares anymore what's going on with us ML. For them it got old. I care about you more than ever Love. Don't do this to me. Take that blog section down Love.
