"Inspiration, Move Me Brightly" ~ Robert Hunter
It has been quite the month. The poet T.S. Eliot wrote in his famous modernist poem "The Waste Land" that April is the cruelest month. I would contend that as a Chamber Director, perhaps September is, indeed, the cruelest month.
Such a statement, however, would not be entirely accurate. The month itself was taxing, but it was certainly not cruel. It was a bittersweet month filled with long hours, a diet featuring too many fast food containers, and a general lack of sleep and exercise. For someone such as myself, a person that regularly exercises and appreciates a good night's rest, September proved to serve as quite the endurance test.
My endurance test, however, failed in comparison to those that participated in our now 3rd Annual Sault Area Chamber Chase. To date, I've spent a fair amount of time making certain I address the over 100 volunteers that participated in the planning and execution of the event and I certainly don't wish to discount them by not addressing their efforts in full detail. They were tremendous. While impressive and worthy of an editorial separate and distinct from this one, I want to focus on what inspired me above all else this past weekend: the runners.
I'm a jogger. On occasion, I pick up the pace and actually run. I last ran a 5K when I was 18 or 19 and haven't considered running a race in years. This past weekend changed that. I conversed with several runners that shared their stories of training, how they got into running, and why it is so important to them. Each story was unique, even if common themes about improving health and finding joy in the process were woven throughout. Those themes certainly don't discount any of the runners' accomplishments and efforts. One man's story, however, proved to be quite remarkable and, for me, the inspiration for this month's editorial.
As our races concluded at City Hall, I awaited along with our timing team for our final marathoner to cross the finish line. The course was officially closed at this time and our runner chose not to catch a ride with our course wagon back to the finish line. He wanted to finish on his own terms. When he arrived, the crowds had dispersed, the weather was still cold, and transportation from the finish line to the start line had wrapped up. He needed a ride and so I offered.
On our short drive to the finish line, this 76 year old from California shared with me that the Chamber Chase was his 20th marathon. Immediately, I felt a month's worth of fast food and sedentary office work rise up to the forefront of my consciousness. This runner is more than twice my age and he just finished his 20th marathon. I was impressed. I asked how he got into running and he told me it didn't happen until he turned 42. One day, he reached the top of a staircase and found himself out of breath. He knew he needed to make a life change and so he began walking. This turned into jogging and eventually into running. Today, at 76 years old, he indicated it's really a mix of all three during a race.
I was inspired. This past week, I jogged. I didn't quite run yet, but I'll get there and I hope to be able to run a 5K if not before the end of 2012, certainly when the weather warms up next spring. So although the month of September proved to be one that featured long office hours, a poor diet, and virtually no exercise, it also served as an inspiration to change that all in hopes of a future where I can share with someone my story about how I got into running one cool Saturday in September.

Thank you to the entire community of Sault Ste Marie, Chase runners, and our gracious sponsors for their wonderful support of this past Saturday's Sault Area Chamber Chase
! Despite cold temperatures and the looming threat of precipitation, a record 308 runners from across the US and Canada registered to participate in the Third Annual event. The flat, scenic course started at LSSU and proceeded over the International Bridge and back and then continued along Portage Avenue to Riverside and Nicolet with a return back to town and a finish on Water Street at City Hall.
The international course was a unique factor for the race and attracted runners from Florida, California, Colorado, Nevada, Kentucky, Illinois, Ohio, Texas, and Wisconsin. Nearly 140 of the participants were from Chippewa County with an additional group of just over 30 from Ontario, including Sault Ste Marie, Toronto, and Ottawa.
"Race officials did a very nice job with the organization, registration, course, t-shirts, awards and transportation," said Greg Mills, third overall finisher in the Bridge Run from Bellaire, MI. "Everyone involved makes visiting Sault Ste Marie and participating in your event a nice and memorable experience."
The race was made possible by a remarkable turnout of volunteers from area organizations and individuals. Over 100 volunteers participated in various aspects of the race, including service as course marshals, water station attendants, and medical personnel. Fortunately, no serious medical attention was needed for any of the runners.
Race results are currently available online at www.saultstemarie.org with photos available at the Sault Area Chamber of Commerce Facebook Page and at Picture This Photography. A user account (free to register) is required to access the over 1,000 photos, including several from the International Bridge and Finish Line.
Thank you once again, Sault Ste Marie,Chase runners, and sponsors for supporting this wonderful event in our community. Save the date of September 28, 2013 for next year's Chase and remember, run like someone's "chasing" you!
