Virtually every morning, Robert "Doc" Rappole arises early and heads for the Bemus Point Market.

Once there, the Ellery resident usually finds some combination of John Marsh, Pat Green and John Zuroski waiting for him, and together they begin a 6-mile run.

"There's always at least one of them who will run with me," Rappole said. "Truthfully, I run every day. If it's 30-below, I go run, and happily."

This year has been especially gratifying for the 66-year-old.
