Eric and Karen with Scott Jurek

Congratulations to Karen, Eric, Matt, and Chris for tracking down Scott Jurek on different portions of the Appalachian Trail on his historic run to set a new course record. I’ve seen a few of the photos and it looks like you all had a great time and I’m sure he appreciated your company. We’ll continue to monitor his progress and if anyone wants to plan a road trip to Maine, maybe we can catch him again.


April 26, Leatherman’s Loop

I look forward to seeing many of you at the Leatherman’s Loop this Sunday. Good luck to you all and we’ll run together next week.

Important notes from the Leatherman’s Loop team

Race organizers Mike Paletta, Tony & Judy Godino, Rob Cummings and the dedicated Leatherman’s Loop volunteers have been working hard to set up this year’s event. All we need is YOU!

Below are some important instructions regarding the Loop. Registration is packed full. We will need your help to ensure that loop day goes smoothly.

Here are some tips that you can incorporate into your plan for the morning and the day:

1.) ARRIVE EARLY! Please plan to arrive at the park before 8:20. Car pool if you can. Traffic will back up considerably at the park entrance as race time approaches. Please be patient. The regular $10 parking fee is incorporated as part of the loop entry fee so entry will go more quickly. It is always wise to arrive earlier than you think you need to in order to make sure you are all set by race start time (9am). This is especially true if it is your first time running the Loop.

2.) DRIVE SLOWLY and CAREFULLY in the Park! Watch the volunteers who are directing the parking. PARK TIGHT! Plan ahead – Car Pool if you can!. For a helpful overview of the race location (parking, start, bib pickup), check the logistics page on the website.

November 22, Zofnass Family Preserve

Help Us Restore Zofnass Family Preserve

The folks at Westchester Land Trust need our help. Toward the end of the summer, Zofnass Family Preserve was vandalized by someone “marking trails” using florescent paint on rocks and trees. Since much of Zofnass is a wetland area, the paint needs to be removed without using harsh chemicals. Fortunately, greater minds than mine have come up with a solution that works without harming the environment. What we need now are some people who can spend a little time implementing their remediation plan. Come out Saturday, November 22, at 9:30 a.m. for whatever time you can and help restore the preserve.

Meet at Waterbury Way where the trail crosses (see map here), bring work gloves, a heavy nylon or wire brush, and a gallon or two of water for rinsing. If you have Fast Orange (preferable) or Simple Green cleaners, bring those as well although David Emerson from Westchester Land Trust will be picking some of those up—and dress to get dirty. Barry Fagan, Eric Wilson, Alan Wegener and family, an I spent a couple hours remediating some of the park. Now let’s finish the job.

Can you help restore Zofnass on November 22, 9:30 a.m.?
