There was an added incentive to swim/bike/run as fast as possible on Saturday morning, Aug. 11, at the 10th Sharon Sprint Triathlon sponsored by the town’s recreation department and organized by Rec Director Matt Andrulis Mette.

The sky was cloudy and threatened rain (something new and different); anyone who wanted to miss the downpour was going to have to finish quickly.

A vacation that wasn’t what it was s’posed to be but, hey, that’s OK

Every year I take a week’s vacation at the family homestead in Phoenicia, N.Y. I try to time it for the end of September or beginning of October, the better to take advantage of early fall fishing on the Esopus Creek and tributaries.
It’s a happy time, especially since there is no internet at the house, no cable TV, and I have to drive 5 miles to get a cell phone signal.

So much to love at the 42nd Pumpkin Run

KENT — There weren’t only cold hands (and noses) at the 42nd annual Pumpkin Run in Kent on Sunday, Oct. 28. There were also warm hearts, as evidenced by the fact that one young runner proposed marriage to another young runner during the post-race awards ceremony. For more details on that, turn to Page A18.
As for everyone else: brrrrr. No one seemed to bunch together for warmth, although there were enough warm bodies there, with 574 runners registered for the adult race and 484 crossing the finish line.
