The group includes, From left, Alicio Waters, Jill Norby, Hurley, Miller and Wendy Johnson. Marathon runners aim for 50-50-50 club BY LOUISA BARBER SIDNEY HERALD They're part of the 50-50-50 club, participating in 50 marathons in 50 states before they turn 50 years old. And so far they're on a great start. Fairview natives Staci Miller, 40, and Patience Lam Hurley, 39, set the goal in Au- gust during a half-marathon in Spearfish, N.D., they were walking in, and now are four states down already. "We just decided it was a good way to see the United States, spend time with friends and family and just be healthy after turning the big 4-0," Miller said. To en- courage family and friends to join them in their endeavor, the two are usually joined by four to six others from around the country. So far they've completed marathons in South Dakota, Montana, North Dakota and Arizona. Their fifth one is scheduled for Sunday in Pasadena, Calif. Five more are tentatively scheduled during the summer with plans to go to Seattle, Wash., Laramie, Wyo., Brainerd, Minn., Virginia Beach, Va., and Portland, Ore. After Miller's first half- marathon in South Dakota when she didn't train at all, she decided it would be in her best interest to do regular workouts. The 40-year-old woman uses cross training and does core muscle work- outs, which she says helps immensely with running. "Most of it is mental, getting past your mental limitations that you have on your physi- cal fitness," she said. Her friend, meanwhile, us- es a 16-week training pro- gram by Hal Higdon, avail- able to the public for free at, which provides a sensible approach to training. Hurley works out thanks to my husband, sisters, adopted pesky little sister, niece, nephew and families near and far, my children and all of our dear friends who brought love, well wishes, gifts, cards & food. To the wonderful nurses, Dr. Bergin and Dr. Karanjai for the good care I received while I was in the hospital. We love you all and God bless your kindness, fill Kathy & Larry Garman three times a week with Sat- urdays having longer ses- sions on the eliptical trainer. "If I can do this at this age, there's no reason every other person can't do something," she said. "Get off the couch and do something." As a diabetic, Hurley says participating in the marathons, and the training that goes along with them, have helped her improve her health; she's lost some weight. For Miller, participating in 50 marathons is a good way to show her children it's always good to set a goal and go for it. "It doesn't matter at what age, you can still try new things and accomplish new things," she said. Before every event, Miller dedicates it in honor of some- one or a group of people who are close to her heart. In Ari- zona, her first marathon, she dedicated it to all the military troops overseas because her son-in-law was stationed in Afghanistan, and both he and Miller's daughter are set to be deployed later this year. Keeping that in mind really kept her going through the miles. Cramping up with just a few miles to go she recalled thinking, "You know, there's a 21-year-old kid that's in the military, and he's working 12, 15, 18 hour days in 130-degree heat. Meals are coming out of a bag, and he's away from his family So then what's anoth- er six miles when he's leav- ing a baby behind?" Coinci- dentally, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., was the emcee for the race. Miller has plans to dedicate Sunday's half-marathon to cancer survivors she's had in her life. Miller, who continues to improve on her times every time, said it's been inspiring to know that "just a normal person" can finish marathons. She advises peo- ple to just do it. "You don't have to be a track star. You don't have to be a huge ath- lete," she said, adding people should just train at their own pace and ability. Hurley admitted that she was unsure of her abilities to finish these races at first. Af- ter all, she used to serve in the military, and so she forgot just howmuch she enjoyed running until she started it again. Needless to say things have since changed. "Now I know's not how you finish the race, it's courage to take the first step," she said. If anyone is interested in participating in any of the marathons or just needs training tips, call Miller at 480-4633. Miller and Hurley say they are always looking for new people to join.
