Sports & Outdoors 124 Rml)Jur, lmw3o-JUmE Z,]om | Cape Gazette 8,000 runners will hit the road this summer One runner succumbs to heart condition By Dave Frederick Twenty-two years ago Dennis Williams and Mandy Falk, who split time between homes in Maryland and Lewes, ran their first race together, the Bay to Breakers in San Francisco, along with 7,000 other runners. Last Sunday, May 25, the long- time friends ran their last race to- gether, the 15th annual Masser 5- Miler in Lewes. "Malady and I ran two miles on Saturday and biked 12 and every- thing was fine," Dennis said by phone Wednesday from Kent General Hospital in Dover short- ly before Mandy, 58, was taken Continued on page 125      and completed the Masser 5- Miler on Sunday, May 25. But during a post-race cool-down, she felt chest pain, DAVE FREDERICK PHOTOS was treated by paramedics and later transported to the hospital where she suc- cumbed to a heart condition she was unaware of. Dave Frederick Putting it on the line and getting things done he athletes are the al- pha dogs of high school. The Alpha males and females are the leaders of the social group of students. Cape athletes ap- proaching 400 put on the uni- form and protect the house all school year long through blood, sweat and tears. The athletes are the ambassadors to the com- munity, the ones written about. Athletes represent energy and ambition, pride and teamwork, and all things admirable. And they shouldn't apologize for lov- ing their teammates and being proud of their school. These kids are out front putting it on the line and getting things done and Cape should ride their coat- tails. Every resident 18 and older can vote in the upcoming refer- endum that will allow money al- ready approved to be used for a turf field that will support field hockey, soccer and lacrosse and give all our athletic ambassadors first-class facilities to practice and play on for generations. All athletes past and present and their families need to get on out there and protect this house! TRAINER DAVE - Dave Ker- gaard left the fraternity of life- long linemen to become a full- back because he likes carrying the mail and pushing his game beyond the glory. But he is my personal resource in matters of health and fitness. Dr. Jeff Heck- ert is the guy charged with fix- ing me. Dear Dave: Last Wednesday morning be- fore hitting the gym and step- ping on the dog I took the fol- lowing medications on an empty stomach: ibuprofen 3x200 mg, giucosamine 1500 mg, chon- droitin 1500 mg, multi-vitamin for 50+ women, flaxseed oil 1000 mg and Co Q-10 400mg. Let me add that most mornings I take none of these things. I chased all these with two mugs of cof- fee, one yellow vitamin water and two peanut butter Kandy Kakes. So, like what happens when this all balls up as a single mix- ture in your stomach?

Fredmam First, as a lineman you know what rou have put in your stom- ach for 62 years, so do you think a few vitamins and Kandy Kakes are going to affect it? I don't think so! Second, if the listed supplements work they suppos- edly take 6-8 weeks to get in your joints to help but, honestl,. they may all have a placebo ef- fect. If the mind tells you it works, then it does. My opinion, once the cartilage is gone, it's gone. IT'S ALL STUPID - The Blue/Gold 5K race starting from Irish Eyes in Lewes at 7".30 a.m. S/turday, June 14, is for a great cause which raises money for programs benefiting Delaware's mentally challenged citizens, al- though I've never gotten a check. All the Saturday traffic draws grimaces from lots of an- glers because down that road it's all their world and many look at runners like "how stupid is it to run for no reason other than to fmisb_" It's hard to argue with that, but what is fishing all about? Fish- ing is a fever, said to be relaxing, perhaps even a sport, but if you run offshore and "get into them" your fish filets in the freezer will have cost as much as a used car from the Sussex Guide. We're all stupid - it's how we relax. FISHING SHOWS - I watched 10 minutes of a freshwater fishing show and I wanted to jump into the boat and start smacking peo- ple. It's just a freaking fish! Swim with the barracuda then come talk to me. There is no doubt some an- glers just know how to catch fish while I'm so dumb I just go any- Continued on page 126
