With apologies to John Lennon. But surely Runners World writer Ali Nolan must be tripping balls.
Omaha ranked as the number nine city in the United States for running. Bwaaaahahahahahah! What a crock!!
Windy. Hot. Cold. Windy. Humid. Windy.
Friggin concrete everywhere. Call them trails til you fall over.
No Real Omaha Marathon.
My former dojo, Lake Zorinsky. Crazy bikers on the only asphalt trail in town. And dogs. And the general public 3-4 abreast. And the flashers, don’t forget them! Add in the constant break ins and you wonder whom miss Nolan spoke with.
Here’s how it happened. The heaviest weighted criteria (40%) for consideration was the presence of USATF and RRCA sanctioned clubs. We all know the reputation of the Omaha Running Club, supporting local running and walking. Warms me just a little to know that NRGE, Inc. and even Team Nebraska contributed to that score. Everyone else that doesn’t fit the joyful, social, aspect. The Competition, that’s all me. Aw shucks.
Congratulations to NRGE’s youngest mates. Sam Runde took the win at yesterday’s Labor Day Classic. Brother Jackson in the top 15 too!
Tom Whitaker has ridden herd over the Omaha Running Club for the 15 plus years I’ve lived in Omaha. Starts at the top!
