  • Try Skating Barefoot

    I was walking through the garage and my eyes wandered to a large plastic can: protruding from it were a couple of metal bats and a defenseman’s lacrosse stick. I’ve walked by this container hundreds of times on the way to the car and ignored it: not today. As I rummaged through the can, baseball […]

  • Erie Canal Half: A Boilermaker Event

    If you’ve been following this blog during recent months, it should be obvious that the Boilermaker is undergoing a change. Let’s call it an expansion of focus. We are no longer content with being confined to the month of July but instead have ambitions to be a year-round change agent. Blossoming outreach initiatives like the […]

  • Looking Back, Looking Ahead

    So here we are in January of 2017, I must say I’m pretty proud of myself: wrote no checks with January 2016 (although my sons laugh at me that I still write checks- unless it’s to them). This is a big anniversary year for the Boilermaker- our 40th running! These are times when you remember […]

    How many of you reading this message have run the full 15K race course? Next question – How many have walked the 15K miniature race course in Butler Park? OK, final question – Do you know what Boilermaker Square at Butler Park is all about? With that out of the way – Here is your […]

  • Running – Cindy Dardano, Boilermaker Volunteer Coordinator

    I was never a great athlete. In my mind I was but in reality I wasn’t. I was just average. I tried many sports. I skied, skated, swam, played tennis and golf and cycled my little legs off but I never excelled. It didn’t mattered how good I was though, because I just enjoyed the […]

  • We Have Been Blessed

    “I’ll have a blue Christmas without you I’ll be so blue just thinking about you Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree Won’t be the same dear, if you’re not here with me” Elvis Presley The end of the year is marked with the inevitable lists chronicling: best songs, worst movies, sexiest celebrities etc. […]

  • Not Your Father’s Boilermaker

    In 1978, 876 runners lined up next to Utica Radiator in East Utica to participate in the first ever Boilermaker. It was a hellishly hot day. Among the masochists was my father, an area car dealer. He did not finish. He lost consciousness, fortunately near St. Luke’s Hospital on Burrstone Road. But to this day, […]

  • Sharing the Car

    There comes a time when you need to relent the steering wheel to others- at least on occasion. And so goes Tim’s Blog as it morphs into the Boilermaker Blog. There are a number of reasons. If you commit to blog writing it’s mandatory you commit to frequent posts: at best my input has been […]

  • A Month of Thanks

    November is one of those few months where we have two National Holidays- Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving (biggest running day of the year)-both days built around thanks. So I’m going to write a bit about thanks. This month I was incredibly honored to be nominated and awarded this year’s Road Race Director of the Year […]

  • The Currency of Caring

    I was honored to be asked to be the Keynote speaker for the 100 year celebration of the Utica Kiwanis Club, a terrific service-based organization. Below is the speech I gave dealing with that most finite of things- time. After I gave the talk I thought about our sport and time- we are one of […]

  • Complete Streets Make Complete Sense

    There was a recent article in the Observer Dispatch about the City of Utica adopting a Compete Streets policy. It piqued my interest as the Boilermaker ‘lives’ on the streets of Utica. I think it makes a ton of sense: but let’s back up- what exactly are Complete Streets? Well according to The National Complete Streets Coalition [...]
