As we enjoy this holiday season and the merriment it's nice to know we have
given something back to our community. As members of the Jersey Shore
Running Club we are giving back to our local charities all year long. We have
some outstanding leaders in this club and they have worked tirelessly to
ensure that our races are not only the most smoothly run but also a lot of fun.
However, some of our race directors believe it is time to pass the baton and
give someone else a chance to get involved. I encourage you join one of our
race committees and play an even larger part in the amazing things this club
does all year round. Help our club and the dozens of local charities we support
stay strong. If you are interested in becoming more involved or joining a race
committe please feel free to contact me at [email protected]
~ Carly DePolo, President
JSRC NEEDS YOUR EXPERTISE!
Jersey Shore Running Club is a great organization and it is that way because of you—our members.
Many of our events have been run year after year without fail by the club. In fact, some of them have
been run by the same person or committee for years!
One of the problems we have had over the years is our Race Directors do such a good job, no one wants
to replace them—even when they want to “retire” from the position and move on to other races or hobbies. To keep this club vibrant and some of our favorite races continuing, we need to new people to learn
the ropes from the “old-timers” and prepare to take over the Race Director reins as they decide to
“retire.” from race directing.
Think about it, how many times were you running a race and thought “They shoulda…”, or “If I were in
charge of this race…”? Well, here’s your chance to make a change or improvement!
You needn’t be afraid that you don’t know anything about race directing, our current race directors were
newbies once upon a time, too. Plus, you will have an added advantage of their experience and knowledge as they train you for the race. They will be there to guide you on your first time, so you won’t be on
your own. If you’ve volunteered at races you already know something.
So why not make 2014 the year where you become more involved with the club?
Here’s where we urgently need help and new race directors:
RunAPalooza: Bob Both is seeking someone to become race director for 2015. He thinks it would be best
if a new person could start now to learn the ins and outs of a multi-race, multi-town event. Bob is willing
to break it into three race director positions, one for each of the three events: the 5K, the Half and the
relay. Bob says he would likely stay involved, but cannot do it all anymore. If you are interested contact
Bob or President Carly DePolo.
Bodman Run: This is one of the Club’s founding runs and one that helped to grow JSRC. It’s been going
on every Sunday morning for years. Liz Ireland has been “spoiling” the group for years, making certain
there was plenty of water and special treats for later, but she has moved farther away and would like to
pass the job on to someone else. Mary Moriarty has been placing amenities on the course, but no one is
pitching in at the clubhouse. It’s reached crisis stage, where people don’t want to come anymore since
there’s no one managing food & treats. Without Sunday Run, we would be the same as any other club. At
present, we have volunteers for a few, including Liz, Bob Both has volunteered for one or two weeks to
make it a “Hot Chocolate Run.” But we need more than just Bob & Liz to pitch in, we need the runners
who participate to also pitch in to help our club remain the best in NJ. If each person who participates in
the run, were to take a week, offer to bring treats, bring water, show up early to open the door, put out
amenities, open the restroom, and work as a team, it would truly be a team run and team event. If you
are interested in helping out, the commitment would be 8:00 a.m. to 11:00a.m. on Sunday mornings.
For more information, please contact President Carly DePolo.

CLUB RUNS
Bodman Sunday Run: The JSRC
Board has decided to do a “rebirth” of the Bodman Sunday
Run. Will begin with a Hot
Chocolate Run on Sunday, Dec.
8. Every second Sunday will be
hosted by the JSRC board. Refreshments there until around
10:30-11am. Liz Ireland had to
step down as weekly run host but
no one offered to take her place.
However, as a show of faith in the
Bodman run, the Board has decided to support one Sunday run
a month. We ARE still seeking
volunteers to take it back. You
could split it among other people
and not do it every Sunday like
Liz used to. We are also working
out some incentive offers to inspire volunteers (maybe free race
entries, maybe free JSRC gear).
Phil Hinck said it’s one of the
most scenic courses in the Monmouth County area. This is the
run that started our club, so we
didn’t want to let it go by the
wayside.
Thursday Run: Jim Murphy says
it draws 25-30 people every week.
Start and finish at bar A every
Thursday.

GOOD NEWS!
Dave DeMonico reports that Jim Robbins is recovering nicely. He
moved into a therapy/rehab center and is doing well. He os sounding
strong, already working on his therapy with the goal of getting back
home and eventually back to the races & club events.
Jim said he appreciates all of your well wishes, thoughts, prayers, emails,
etc. He respectfully asks for no visitors at this time. He and his wife would
like to make the most of the time he has in rehab—to stick to the busy
therapy schedule and really focus on that— and getting enough rest, in
order to make his efforts at recovery more efficient & effective.
He does access his email—feel free to contact him, that way. He'll be
able to read the emails, but will be limited in ability to reply (So, don't be
worried if you don't receive a reply) Jim's doing great & will be back to
his regular Jimbo self, in no time !
As Dave says - good stuff!
CONGRATULATIONS

Running in the New Year
BY BOB BOTH
The Jersey Shore Running Club’s 10th Annual New Year’s Eve Twilight Run
was held on December 31. 2013 in Sea Girt, N.J. It was one last run for
2013.
The runners gathered at Edgars for registration and bib pick up starting at
4:30 p.m. At 5:30 p.m. They walked over to the Sea Girt National Guard
Training Center which is next door for the start of the 3 mile run. Many
runners came decked out in New Year’s Eve garb for the occasion.
The 300 plus runners lined up inside the Center and Race Director, Dan
Napolitan gave them instructions and thanked them for coming out. Phil
Hinck of Monmouth Beach then gave the runners the command to start.
The runners made their way around the roads inside the Center and finished
near the start.
This was a celebratory run so there were
no formal results or winners.
All the runners wore the 2014 bib number. The runners came across with happy
faces and were ready to bring in the New
Year in Ireland shortly after they finished.
The celebration continued inside Edgars
where the runners were treated to a buffet and a celebratory drink for the occasion.
Also celebrating were Phil and Penny
Hinck who were marking their 15th Wedding Anniversary. What better way to celebrate than with all their running friends.
Happy New Year and have an awesome
year of great running in 2014.

BOB BOTH’S RUNNING TIPS
What are your running goals for 2014?
The year 2013 was a memorable one for runners. Many events
continued to be troubled by the devastation from Hurricane Sandy.
Sandy had an impact on many popular running routes along the
boardwalks and parks, but most recovered by the start of the traditional summer season: Memorial Day weekend. The Boston Marathon
bombing had an impact on events and created a need for additional
security and vigilance at races and baggage checks.
Now, if you haven’t already done so, it’s time to start planning your
running goals for 2014.
Goals and resolutions can be many categories such as:
• Yearly mileage. Many runners maintain meticulous running logs
and track their weekly, monthly and yearly miles. They set a goal of
running a specific target like 1000 or 2000 miles in the year. It’s a
good way to stay motivated to get out the door on some nasty days
and keep running all year round.
• Set a Personal Best. Pick a race distance and work toward a
personal best for that distance. Of course, as you get older those
personal bests might be harder to achieve. So you could set a goal of
breaking last year’s personal best or an age-group personal best.
• Run a longer distance. If you have been stuck running 5k’s set a
goal to run a longer distance race. Maybe set a goal to run a 10K, a
half marathon or a full marathon. Just be careful not to jump up
from say a 5k to a marathon distance too fast. That increases the
chance of injury and will set you back.
• Diversify. Do some cross training of some biking and swimming
and set a goal to do a triathlon or duathlon. . Don’t worry about finishing times if it is your first. Do it with some friends and do it for
fun.
• Travel. Find an interesting event some place and make a resolution
to travel to the race. It will energize your running and keep you motivated.
• Volunteer. Contact your local running club and offer to volunteer at
a race or in some other capacity. It’s always a rewarding experience
and a way to give back to the sport.
6 October/November 2013
Group running ettiquette
When running in a group, here are some etiquette suggestions to make
the run more enjoyable for all.
• Get there on time. If the run starts at 8:00 a.m., be there a few
minutes before and be ready to run at 8:00 a.m. It is impolite to
make everyone wait for you.
• Run with others who run at the same pace. Try to stay with a
group which runs about your pace. Sometimes in groups, I see people
running a few yards out in front of the rest. Just slow down a bit and
run at a comfortable pace with people who run about your pace and
stay together.
• It is not a race. It is supposed to be a fun run. It is not a race to see
who can make it back first.
• Avoid headphones and ear buds. It’s the worst feeling when you
are running with someone and you say something and they are
oblivious to your conversation. Remember it is a group run and the
conversation will help make the run more enjoyable and go faster for
everyone. Save the music when running alone.
• Be friendly and welcome newbies. When new runners join the
group, make sure someone who knows the route goes with them or
at least points them in the right direction.
• Empty your pockets. Don’t carry that big key chain and pocketful
of coins. The jingling on a long run can be very annoying to other
runners. Just take your car key and put it in the little key pocket of
your shorts or jacket or tie it to your shoe laces.
• Don’t crowd the path. We generally run two abreast. On running
trails leave room for others going in the opposite direction or others
to pass you. On the road, always stay far enough to the side of the
road out of the path of oncoming traffic. (Run facing traffic, too!)
• Be a windbreaker. On windy days take turns running in front to
help break the wind for those behind you.
• Conversate. It is good to talk but don’t monopolize the conversation. Let others chime in.
• Be helpful. If someone is having a problem or falls make sure someone stays with them and someone calls or goes for help. If it happened to you, you would not want to be left alone.

BOB BOTH’S RUNNING TIPS
A little snow get your running down?
Are a few inches of snow on the ground and winter’s cold weather keeping
you indoors and creating an excuse to skip your run?
In 2010, four somewhat novice runners attempted what is considered the
most challenging series of ultra-marathons in the world.
The races are held in some of the most extreme environments on earth.
These were in Chile’s Atacama Desert one of the driest spots on earth;
China’s Gobi desert, Egypt’s Sahara and in the Antarctic with temperatures
below freezing and blizzard conditions.
The first man to ever successfully complete the Four Desert Series “Grand
Slam” was world famous “Ultramarathon Man,” Dean Karnazes.
The four runners were 56-year-old Dave, an Irish marketing director; 33year-old Ricky, a former pro American baseball player; 25-year-old Australian
actress Samantha and 40-year-old Tremaine an English ex-military security
specialist.
The movie, titled “Desert Runners”, documents the four participant’s experiences in the races. According to director Jennifer Steinman the movie provides “a glimpse into the mindset of ultra-athletes, and the complex ways in
which human beings deal with both heartbreak and triumph.”
This is a movie that should inspire, humble, and entertain. Runners of all
ability will be able to relate to their experience at some level—and, after
watching this movie it may not be so easy to complain about the cold wintry conditions during your five-mile run.
The movie is now available on DVD or digital download at the Desert Runners movie web site (http://buy.desertrunnersmovie.com/). It would also
make for a nice gift for your ultra-marathon friend.
Winter running can be exhilarating!
The official start of
winter was December
21, 2013. Running in
the winter can be brutal
or exhilarating. As
we’ve seen, this first
week of January, there
can be brutal days with
driving cold wind, rain,
sleet and snow. There
are also sunny bright
days with the sun
warming you as you go
down your favorite path. It can also be treacherous with icy conditions
making for the risk of slips and falls. Here are some simple tips to help
get out and run this winter.
Clothing:
• Head. On those cold days wear a hat which covers the ears. You lose
a lot of body heat from the head and it is important to keep it covered to keep in the heat.
• Hands. Wear mittens rather than gloves. Mittens keep your fingers
warmer than regular gloves. When it is really cold, wear gloves and
then put mittens over the gloves.
• Core. Wear layers and don’t overdress. A wicking shirt as an under
layer helps keep moisture away from the body. Put another shirt over
that and on real cold days wear a light (unlined) windbreaker. Wearing tights are popular, but the looser fitting ones are actually warmer.
• Feet. Don’t wear cotton socks. Wear the moisture “Cool Max” or
equivalent type as they will help keep your feet dry.
• At Night. When running at night wear reflective clothing or a
flashing light for visibility.
• By Day. During the day wear your sun block. The winter sun can be
strong and cause damage to your skin as well as increase the risk of
skin cancers.
Running routes:
• Wind. On windy days try to run against the wind on the way out. It will
be tough going out, but you will be rewarded on the return. There is nothing worse than having to turn around and battle the wind after breezing
through a bunch of miles with the wind at your back.
On cold windy days running some trails in the woods really makes a big
difference as it breaks the wind.
• Traffic. Always run against the traffic—on the left-hand side of the
road so you can see oncoming traffic.
Find a lighted path to run in the evening when it is dark such as the
local boardwalks.
The best way to stay motivated through the winter is to run with some
friends or a group. When a friend or group is waiting there is a much
better chance you will not find an excuse not to run on that cold,
windy night.

Polar Bears get wet
The Annual Shore AC Polar Bear Races in Asbury Park started in 1964 with
Elliott Denman, an Olympic Race Walker who, at the time, was a reporter
for the Asbury Park Press.
On Sunday, December 29, 2013, Elliott and several hundred other runners
and walkers were in Asbury Park for the 50th running of the races.
With a cold driving rain and temperatures in the upper 40’s the weather was
not even amenable to polar bears. But these several hundred runners did
participate in the 5-mile race which started at 1:00 p.m. on the Asbury Park
Boardwalk on the south side of Convention Hall.
In the morning, a 10-mile race walk was held on the boardwalk. Later,
runners gathered prior to the start inside the arcade of Convention Hall and
waited until just a few minutes prior to the start.
Phil Hinck of Monmouth Beach gave the runners instructions for the race
warning them to be careful on the slippery surface. Elliott Denman of Shore
