SPLITS - Local runners Melody Fargo and Tia Bunting are training for the Philadelphia Marathon, which will be the first marathon for both of them. The girls, under the direction of mini- Papa Clyde Lance Fargo, just RUNNING completed their first 21-mile training .run this past Saturday and Lance said they will be ready. And who wants to d!sagree with the 240-pounder who was last summer's state Clydesdale cham- pion? Not me! I spent my lunch break Oct. 17 setting fifty cones out on the cross country course at College of Ma- rine Studies to help with the Cape, Lake Forest, and Caesar Rodney meet to be held later in the day. Up walked my choice for the next mayor of Lewes, Hank Brit- tingham, who explained to me how I can run the finish chute be- tween the 18 wheelers at Lewes Dairy if I chose to do so. Hank and I started talking about marathoning technology, chip time versus gun time, and how Chicago hosted 37.000 runners last weekend. I used my running knowledge to explain the chip time versus gun time to Hank as he took it all in. He then took it a step further to in- tbrm me that after each finisher crossed the line. a courtesy phone call was made to their contact to tell them they crossed the finish line. "'All 37,000 finishers." I asked'?" Hank also buried me by telling me that EZ Pass customers that travel the i 3-mile stretch of Route 13 can receive a speeding ticket m the mail without ever being stopped. Hank explained thata chip takes your time entering and exiting the bypass and figures out your time and miles per hour. Those drivers averaging more than 65 mph can expect a little something in their mailboxes. Hank showed up later in the day and because he's so interesting, I quickly recruited him to work the end of the chute hoping for more of his knowledge Most people tell me physical education teachers can use some extra knowledge. Hank did a great job and he can even tell you the ocean temperature if you ask him. Thanks again, Hank!
