Red Bank Regional Class of 94


"Move On"

Well I been thinking Tbout the future
But I'm too young to pretend
It's such a waste to always look behind you
Should be lookin' straight ahead

Yeah, I'm gonna have to move on
Before we meet again
Yeah, it's hard
If you had've only seen

10.34: Flinders Street Station
I'm lookin' down the tracks
Uniformed man askin' am I paid up
Why would I wanna be that?

Yeah gonna have to move on
Before we meet again
Yeah it's hard
If you had have only seen
Take control
Don't be afraid of me

'Cause every once in a while
You think about if your gonna get yourself together
You should be happy just to be alive
And just because you just don't feel like comin' home
Don't mean that you'll never arrive

Yeah I'm gonna have to move on
Before we meet again
Yeah it's hard
If you had have only seen
Take control
Don't be afraid of me

The George Sheehan Classic

This weekend I ran in my second race.
The George Sheehan Classic in Red Bank.
"Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be" - George Sheehan
This was on the back of the medals that were handed out to everyone who ran.

There are a few other races I intend on running.
I had some goals (I didn't know how realistic they were because these were my first races)
I set a goal for under two hours in the half marathon and I reached that goal. My official time was 1 hour 57 minutes and 59 seconds.
For the George Sheehan 5 mile run, I wanted to run 8 minute miles for a total of 40 minutes. I reached that goal too. Official time 39 minutes and 49 seconds.

The next races I see in the future are:
7/12/08 - Belmar 5 mile run
8/10/2008 - Freehold 10 mile run Turkey Swamp Race Day
9/21/2008 - Philadelphia Half Marathon
10/05/2008 - Sandy Hook Half Marathon
10/19/2008 - Atlantic City Half Marathon

Also Long Branch has a Triathalon once a month:
7/13, 8/16, 9/21
I'm looking into swimming and biking now.

The 3 half marathons might be tough because they are so close together.
I really want to run in the Phili and Sandy Hook ones.
Atlantic City has a full and half marathon plus 5k and 10k races.
So I might do the 10K race in AC.
I don't think I will make the jump to a full marathon.
Maybe in a few years :)

Markham Place 1990

I have something to say about our late, Great Principal, Mr. Don Merce.
I will post a few words in the next day or two.

Michelle Branch

Marine Corps Marathon

So Crazy Sarah got me to run in the Marine Corp Half Marathon.
It was my first time running since running track at Red Bank Regional.
And of course I beat her!!!!! I only trained for a couple weeks :)
I only beat her by 2 minutes but I still beat her!!!!!
So this past weekend I was hanging out with my other sister Alison.
(Who likes to run in 90 degree weather in the Hot City)
She is Crazier than Sarah and I.
So we decided (After drinking whiskey, scotch and vodka all day) we are going to sign up for a tri-athalon.
The only problem with me is I can't swim. So I am going to try and start swimming this summer.

I don't even know if anyone will read this but who cares. I have some cool pictures to post.

September 25, 1917 - August 14, 2007
Phil bled Yankee Blue.
A True Yankee Forever!!!!!

"I guess heaven must have needed a shortstop. Phil Rizzuto's contributions to the Yankees and the sport of baseball were immense for a period of over 50 years. He was one of the greatest Yankees of all time and a dear, close friend of mine whose loss is enormous to me and to the entire Yankee family. He epitomized the Yankee spirit -- gritty and hard charging -- and he wore the pinstripes proudly. While Scooter may have been smaller in size than some, he was among the tallest in his stature as a Yankee. He was a favorite of fans both as a player and later as a broadcaster. His voice and "Holy Cow" will be part of baseball for as long as we play the game. No one deserved his place in the Hall of Fame more than Number 10. Our condolences to his wife, Cora, and the rest of his family.
George Steinbrenner"
