President’s Column

Festival of Miles, Pace series coming up! St. Louis Track Club Members, June is here, and we are almost at the midpoint for the year. The St. Louis Track Club wrapped up its inaugural Spring Thru St. Lou race series. Congratulations to all award winners and participants, especially those who braved the rain shower during last race at Creve Coeur Park! Additionally, thanks to the sponsors, Dunkin Donuts, Liberty Mutual Insurance, Running Start, and True Runner for helping the Track Club put on the races. Lastly, the races could not go on without the volunteers. Special thanks to all who came out to volunteer their time each Sunday morning, a few members even had the privilege of wearing the Dunkin Donuts costume! Jen and Jake, you guys were rock stars! After the last Spring Thru St. Lou race at Creve Coeur Park, the St. Louis Track Club

held its annual picnic. Despite the early storms, many showed to socialize and have a great time. Excellent job by Rae Mohrmann for organizing the picnic, and also Brian, Jake, Jen, and Mark for helping out and grilling at the event. Next year we will have a grill master award! As for this coming month, I look forward to seeing everyone at some of the upcoming events like the Festival of Miles and some of the Pace Series runs. Don’t forget, this month’s open Board Meeting is Monday, June 16, at Schlafly Bottleworks. Please check the website for the latest details and time. Well, that’s all for now, I’ll be looking for you on the streets and trails! Mike Huelsmann, President St. Louis Track Club, est 1970

Condolences to friends and family of David Wayne Black

The Saint Louis Track Club extends its sympathy to the friends and family of David Wayne Black. David, 44, diagnosed with metastasized cancer November 2012, passed away May 3. David extended his greetings to the Saint Louis Track Club in February of 2013. “I don’t like it, but I have accepted it,” he said of his diagnosis. He expressed desire to regain sufficient health to volunteer at races. David’s running accomplishments include eight marathons, three River-to-River relays, three Tour de Donuts, two Wood River Triathlons, a 100-mile week, and “countless races” between 1995 and 2011. In 2011, he was sidelined by what he thought was a bone spur but was eventually diagnosed as a bony metastasis. His “countless races” included the Saint Louis Track Club’s Track Series. The “The elevation is an issue at 5,280 feet. Denver is the mile-high city,” Rae said. “The Alton Road Runners awarded him a “most mileage one year” award. His sense of humor race starts and ends at their zoo. Much of the race is on Colfax Ave., the longest run- showed when he was part of Metro Tri Club’s multi-person running “Zillapede” at the Saint ning consecutive street in the U.S., but I Patrick’s Day Parade Run. have not yet learned how long it is.” She David’s smile, long curly red hair, and pink described the events as very charity runner-friendly.

His writing extended into Congratulations to Rae Mohrmann. Rae completed the Colfax Kaiser Permanente Marathon on May 18 in Denver. Her 4:35:21 time rated first place in her 60-69 age group. “Very well organized; good crowd and great volunteers,” Rae said. “Quite a bit of snow the week before, but for our race day, the temp was upper forties for the start, but in the 80s — it got hot — for the finish.” Rae reported that there were 17,000 for the combined events. The marathon and five-person relay started at 6 a.m., the half marathon at 6:45 a.m., and the “Urban 10Miler” at 7 a.m. There was a 5K and children’s events the day before.

mystery, horror, and fantasy and included at least three published books. He wrote for three running publications, and won a regional award from the RRCA as a “Club Writer” in 2002. David is survived by his daughter, Sierra, his son, Lars, and partner, Kim Bartholomew.

Divas Half Marathon adds feminine touch to racing scene Alison Bourey and Adrienne Rosen traveled to the Divas Half-Marathon and 5k and reported a good time at the races and in historic Branson. “They treated us like princesses, and it was really fun. I recommend this race to other ladies who would enjoy all the feminine frills and gifts,” Adrienne said. “We all received hot pink race shirts that were really cute. At the finish line, they handed out hot pink feather boas, and a tiara crown for all the lady finishers. When we crossed the line, they gave us a beautiful long stem red rose. Refreshments included a drink of “bubbly,” which is sparking apple cider that tasted like champagne. Photographs were taken at the finish in front of a large poster with Diva logos all over it. We received finisher medals, as well at our award medals.” “Our medals were huge and glamorous, and the boas and tiaras were fun,” Alison said. “The rose I received lasted almost a week. The only downside is that the hills in Branson seemed never to end.” Alison placed first in her age group in the half-marathon; Adrienne placed second in her age group in the 5k. The Divas half-marathon and 5k events are part of a national series that had its inaugural race in Branson this year. Partici-

NAMI walk raises money for mental illness education Saturday, May 24, brought good weather for the runners and walkers “walking for mental health” in the in the 12th Annual St. Louis NAMI Walk. The Upper Muny lot in Forest Park teemed with teams and individuals honoring loved ones, and aiming to help “erase the stigma” of mental illness. Money raised supports mental health educational programs in seven counties throughout the St. Louis area. As of May 29, the unaudited estimate, raised by teams and walkers, was $108,000. Deanna Orf, director of development for NAMI St. Louis, organizer the event, estimates 1,300 people were in attendance, making this year’s walk the largest to date for NAMI St. Louis.

Tradition continues with 40th annual U-City Memorial Day Run The 40th annual University City Memorial Day Run saw 645 runners complete the 5k, 549 the 10k and over 200 children of all ages the youth run. The University City Memorial Day Run has been a staple of the Saint Louis running scene since the start of the “running boom” in the 1970s. “Summer officially kicks off on Memorial Day, and there was no better way to celebrate than at the 40th Annual University City Memorial Day Run,” said David Nischwitz of Big River Running Company. Proceeds from the race benefit the U City Public Library and U City in Bloom. New this year was the downhill finish for

both the 5k and 10k courses. Runners sprinted east on Delmar Boulevard toward the finish line in front of the University City Library. Also this year, two new awards for the 5k, recognized two early University City Memorial Day Run participants. A female masters award recognized the late Mary Fahey, who competed in the University City Memorial Day for many years. Kelly Slater received the inaugural Mary Fahey Award with her 24:04 time. The male award recognized Jack Frolichstein, one of the run’s original organizers, and stalwart of the Saint Louis Track Club. Jack assisted with presenting the award, and was highly visible from the parking lot of the University City Library. Jim Behrens won the award with his 19:50 time. The overall 10k male winner was Michael Kettler, time 32:53; the overall female winner was Kate Schwetye, time 41:09. The overall 5k male winner was Najim Udchachon, time 16:46; the overall female winner was Tricia Frisella, time 19:47. “Congrats to all runners,” said David Nischwitz. Whether Diva, Zillapede, walker, or runner, the Saint Louis Track Club wishes you the best. Please share your news and accomplishments with, or the Saint Louis Track Club office.

Join us for open meeting, group run, & social

The next quarterly open meeting will be Monday, June 16 in conjunction with the monthly club group run and social at Schalfly Bottleworks. The run will begin at 6 p.m., and the social and business meeting will be in the Crown Room immediately after, at approximately 7 p.m. Group runs and socials are held every third Monday of the month at one of Schalflyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s locations. Schlafly, our corporate wellness partner, will provide each run attendee one complimentary beer each! These events are open to current members only, but a free beer every month makes your $30 membership a bargain. We hope to see you there!


Team SLTC participants are running strong through spring and the end of the Spring Through St. Lou series. Congratulations to all racers so far this year! The points have been updated and the status can be viewed on the website. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not too late to join in. Every time you run in an SLTC jersey, just email the office to let us know. Every mile you race translates into points toward a reward at the end of the year. Last year, all participants received a custom, limited edition T-shirts, and top mileage winners received gift cards to local running stores! Page 17

Bruschetta: an excuse to eat tons of tomatoes

Summer is upon us! I don’t know about you, but when I think of summer cooking, tomatoes instantly come to mind. In-season tomatoes are far superior to their sad winter counterparts, and this bruschetta recipe will give you a great excuse to pile ’em on. Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as folate and potassium. They also have a hefty helping of beta carotene, which can help protect skin against sun damage – definitely important when logging all of those hot summer miles outside! Toss the freshest, reddest tomatoes you can find with sliced basil and balsamic vinaigrette, spread a thick layer on some crusty bread, top with mozzarella, and inhale. The tomato mixture is perfect for making ahead of time, as the flavors meld and grow stronger the longer it marinates. Serves 2 for dinner, 4 as an appetizer. ·3-4 fresh, ripe tomatoes, chopped ·8 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced ·2 French baguettes, cut lengthwise ·1 handful fresh basil, thinly sliced ·½ cup balsamic vinaigrette + more for garnish 1. Wash and dice your tomatoes into bite-size chunks. 2. Wash your basil, then tightly roll it into a tube and

thinly slice. 3. Combine tomatoes, basil, and vinaigrette in a bowl and cover. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Mixture will keep in fridge for up to 3 days. 4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice baguettes lengthwise, then into manageable pieces, and top each

piece with a heaping spoonful of tomato mixture and a slice of mozzarella. 5. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees, then turn up to 400 degrees for another 5-10 minutes, until cheese is melted and bread is crispy. 6. Drizzle with additional vinaigrette and enjoy! -Sallie Story
