The two candidates for vice-president are Howie Solow and Rich Adamski. They may not be Jack Kennedy, but we think they're both terrific. Howie is our outgoing t r e a s u r e r .

She is our outgoing vice-president and was the person most responsible for keeping Owen on the straight and narrow.

DUTCHESS CLASSIC ROAD RACES

b y : M e l a n i e M u l v i h i l l

The "Travelling Taconics" did not have to travel far for this one, just upinto Dutchess County for this very pleasant and scenic race which is runby so many of our members each year.

Running the marathon were: Ed McLaughlin (3:19), Alan Marmor (3:37),Noel Lazarus (3:50), and Jerry Taub (3:55).

The half-marathon was completed by; Rich Fennelly (1:24), Dick Murphy (1:44),Jack Burns (1:59), Jim Hamilton (2:10), Laurie Simunek (1:32), Doug Miller(1:22), Rich Adamski (1:44), Jim Hager (1:26), Toby Reif (1:49), GeneGarlepp (1:29), Bob Hermesch (1:20), Sharon Chase (1:57), Vic Chase (1:38),John Hallinan (1:16), Dan Caffrey (1:28), Marc Oxman (1:28), Jeff Oxman (1:22),Howie Bashant (1:25), Frank Sabito (1:20), Pete Meisler (1:59), Don Villeneuve(2:10), Alan Kennedy (1:48), Brian Wheaton (1:45), Sue Then (1:45), Roy Zeeb(1:22), Gene Cadman (1:28), Carmelo Roldan (1:31).

If there were any others who ran, or there are any errors, please callMelanie at 276-3475 and 1*11 correct it in the next issue. The resultswere given to me in Brodie's by Harry (his handwriting isn't the best,p l u s B r o d i e ' s i s d a r k ! ! ) .

THE MEISLER 20 b y : M e l a n i e M u l v i h i l l

It was perfect running weather for the annual Meisler 20-mile run and party.A group of about 20 converged on sleepy Cold Spring early on Sunday, September 25.The stout-hearted men" (sorry, Susan!) who ran the very hilly (an understatement),scenic 20-mile course were Sue Then, John Hallinan, Jeff Oxman, Harry Neeson,Ed McLaughlin, John Voll, Brian Wheaton, Bob Furphy, Don Ettinger, Vic Chase,Steve Corvin and Jerry Miller. Some of us took the "short course" of 13 miles:Pete Meisler, Melanie Mulvihill, Alan Marmor, Carmelo Roldan, Chuck Smith, DonVilleneuve and Jerry Taub. Individualists Pierce Brennan and Brie Meisler ran8 and 3 1/2 miles, respectively. Pete Corsino, Alice Megaro, Peg Meisler,Lisa Vangor and Jim Sweeney biked, and Marilyn Ettinger arrived by car, "onlyto eat." (Mariljm, I admire you for admitting that!).

As the 13-mile finishers gathered around the table to partake of bagels, lox,cream cheese, fruit, pasta salad, juice, and several types of nutritious andnot-so-nutritious cakes and doughnuts, Carmelo sat in the window seat andannounced the proceedings, acting as the "Howard Cosell" of the day. Henoted that Sue Then and Don Ettinger, have finished the world's mostdifficult 20-mile run, actually had the energy to sprint for the finish!!The hit of the day, however, was Brian Wheaton, who used his Thumper tomassage sore musc les a f te r the run . ( I th ink Br ian i s fo r ren t on anhourly basis - see him for details.)Thanks, Pete, Peg and Brxe — we'll be back next year!!!

The Bedford Labor Day Road Races were well attended by laconic members, andmany c l a imed awards .

Brian and Kevin made it a "double-play" for the Wynne family, as Brian tookt o p h o n o r s i n t h e t w o - m i l e e v e n t i n 1 0 : 2 3 a n d K e v i n w o n t h e 5 - m i l e r a c e i na fine 25:14. Brian was challenged early in the race by Mike Gossett andPatrick Wynne, his brother (a new slant on sibling rivalry!). However,Brian emerged the victor, followed by Mike, and Pete Corsino came on forthird place with a time of 11:15 (Pete, are you still claiming to be outof shape??). In the five miler, Kevin was followed by Lou Guerra andDoug Miller, who battled it out with John Carron of Ossining beforeearning second and third, Lou besting Doug by a mere four seconds aftera back-and-forth battle. Other close races were run by John Hallinanand Howie Bashant. Although competing in different age groups, Johnand Howie had a "race within a race" with each other, each winning theirr e s p e c t i v e a g e g r o u p s ( J o h n , 3 0 - 3 9 ; H o w i e , 4 0 - 4 9 ) . B i l l W a l s h b e s t e dthe 50's after an early tussle with Frank Sabito of Peekskill, and, notto be outdone, Peekskill's Pierce Brennan ran a fine race, taking 1stplace in the 60's, outrunning his nemesis from down-county, Dom DiLauria.L a u r i e S i m u n e k t o p p e d t h e w o m e n i n t h e 5 - m i l e r a c e , w i t h s i s t e r L i n d aDeFeo not far beh ind.

Sunday, October 16th - a lovely day indeed for the 8th Annual Harry ChapinM e m o r i a l R a c e .

The re were few TRRC members the re , as P ie rce B rennan pu t i t , " t he mara thonstole everyone away." The pressure of doing long runs, plus the mid-afternoonstart of this race probably kept the crowd down, but nonetheless it was a goodday. The loca l res iden ts were ou t in fo rce , very en thus ias t i ca l l y cheer ing uson and offering us water. After the race, Harry's brother Tom sang a few ofhis own songs and a few of Harry's - a wonderful way to end the afternoon.

Taconicites were numerous in the awards ceremony - With Jim Meadows finishingfirst overal l in a t ime of 33:19, Doug Mi l ler 2nd, 34:38, Scot t Mosenthal 3rd,34:45, Bob Hermesch, 4th, 35:12, and Roy Zeeb, 5th, 35:18. Bob and Roy alsoplaced in their age groups, wi th Roy coming in first in the 20-29ers, winninghis "first medal since May" as friend (?) Doug Miller was quick to point out.Diane Wagner was 1st among the 20-29 women, and the over-60 group saw a Taconicsweep with Pierce Brennan 1st (43:45), Robert LaBelle 2nd (47:17), A1 Cappiello3rd (48:33).

PR heaven - that's how most of the runnersaround here think of the Guiding Eyes race. This isa lOK event held every year on the Sunday iniecedingColumbus day. It b^efits a program to provideseeing eye dogs for the blind. Wea&erwise, this wasthe day runners had been waiting for during the longhot summer - an ideal crisp autumn day. Thecourse, flat and fast, has be accurately measuredfor certification. Though, due to a techificality, it isnot yet officially certified. Class performances weretumed in by the winners. Kevin Wynne and LoriJorgensen both set course records of 31:11 and 35:32.Ruimers-up in the men's race were Jim Meadows,32:33, and Brian Wynne, 33:11. Second placewoman Mary Fanelli-Lund ran a very fine 37:21.

Honorable mention goes to the blind ruimerswho competed. Jeffiey Pledger, a regular competitorat many local races, tumed in a fine 41:05. A coupleof years ago, JefGrey started the Westchester diapterof the Ac^es Track Club for handicapped ruimers.Several ATC members accompanied Jeff. DanCoster and Richard Sweoiey, who are also blind,participated. Vince Bonacd, who has cerebral palsy,was on hand. Frank Lopez competed in the wheelchair division. Special thanks also goes to the guiderunners who accompanied the blind runners aroundt h e c o u r s e .

Guiding Eyes is one of the most popular racesamong club members, as evidenced by strong showing of Taconics in the winners' circle.

The attitude problem is common in U.S. athletes: hoping, praying, and"waking up on the right side of the bed," as silver medalist MichellMitchell says, is important, believing that a lot of luck is required

fo r a go ld meda l . Th is p roduces s t ress f rom compet i t ion un l i ke tha t seen inmost foreign athletes: "Competition makes me happy," says Chinese diverXu Yanme i , a f te r bea t ing M i t che l l f o r the go ld .

This excess competitive stress can, in an unhealthy athlete, cause harmbefore and during competition, dramatically affecting the outcome. U.S.skater Debi Thomas's unsuccessful bid for a gold in Calgary, is one suchexample of this problem. Thomas was unable to perform even near her bestdue to th is s t ress , los ing a seeming ly easy go ld medal . And in Seoul ,many foreign swimmers performed a personal best, while most Americansleft their best performance at the trials many weeks previous.

U.S. athletes and coaches, in their search for the reasons why foreignathletes are over-running international events, often cite the drug and"professional athlete" issue, and money problems as cause for the U.S.decl ine. In real i ty, however, our athletes are genetical ly and potent ial lyas capable as any populat ion in the wor ld . Morever, the so-ca l led moneyprob lem is bes t exempl i fied in the '88 w in te r games: the U.S . sk i teams p e n t 2 1 m i l l i o n d o l l a r s w i t h o u t p r o d u c i n g a q u a l i fi e r f o r t h e fi n a lround, whereas al l the medal winning countr ies combined spent less int h e i r p r e p a r a t i o n .

A more serious money problem, one which affects the health of our futureOlympians, comes from the very companies who are "official" sponsors ofthe U.S. Oljrmpic Team. These companies who sell such products as Coca-Cola, Snickers Candy bars, and Budweiser beer, spend mi l l ions to advert isetheir unhealthy products. And even though the U.S. Olympic Committee doesnot endorse these products as heal thy, our nat ion's young are more naiveand view these products as "foods of champions."

The dwindl ing of our champions is the resul t o f numerous other factors.Poss ib ly the most damaging one, both menta l ly and phys ica l ly, is thesoc ia l m iscons t rued emphas is o f "no pa in , no ga in . " The ins is tenceo n q u a n t i t y , w h i c h i s m o r e t h o u g h t t o b e b e t t e r , r a t h e r t h a n q u a l i t y ,w h e r e b o t h h e a l t h a n d fi t n e s s a r e s o l i d l y b u i l t w i t h e f fi c i e n c y, h a sunfortunately been a mainstream of American sports.

With an emphasis on bui ld ing heal th, and not just bodies, Amer icana th le tes cou ld m in im ize i n j u r i es , i nc rease t he i r ca ree rs and pe r fo rma t h i g h e r l e v e l s .

We can re-estab l ishour athletic dominance by the 1996 Games, however, it may not happenbecause o f t he s t rong t rad i t i ona l , unhea l thy t rends deve loped in recen tdecades.
