Running Team: Rosie Miller, Dave Miller

Date: October 12, 1985

This unique 5 Mile Run started and finished in downtown Dayton. The race supported and raised funds for the restoration of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Each runner received a coin shaped medal (photo #2) made from materials removed from the Statue of Liberty National Monument during its restoration from 1982-1992. We ran the race with friends Donna and Jim. It was a beautiful fall day and Rosie ran a nice 34 minute 43 second race. I must have had a couple of Stroh’s before the race (or had to go to the restroom really bad because of it) as I was close behind her for once at 35:29, a seven minute 6 second pace. Very good for me. We also ran, three years later in September 1988, the Stroh Light Night Run V. Rosie won her womans 25-29 age group with a blistering 19 minute 29 second run.
