We’ll be out at Lake Cunningham tomorrow morning for the 3rd annual Handlebars for Habitat fundraiser. Kayak, Bike, and Run. Another great cause that Team Nebraska is proud to support, I’ll be handling the timing and results.
The Millard Public Schools hosts the Strides for Education 5 & 10K out at the dojo, starts at the Boat Ramps. We’re throwing a couple of the Good Mates in for some light speed work.
Bill Seymour Half Marathon anyone? $500 the overall win on a new loop course, flat and fast, you know we’ve got some mates drooling.
Good purse at the Omaha Corporate Cup too, our team is shaping up very nicely with Luka Thor, Eric Rasmussen, Matt Pohren and Always a Mate Peter vd. Westhuizen all eyeing the prize.
Continuing the 25/1.00 training regimen. Bike 25 miles one day, swim 1.00 the next, repeat. What I wouldn’t give for just a few miles of easy running.
Big thanks to Danielle and Vince Galvin for the gift certificate to Palmer Massage Therapy. 90 minutes of pure torture on the lower extremities, will certainly help loosen up the old bones and hopefully speed the healing process and return to what I pine for. Deb Palmer is as strong and intuitive of a therapist as I’ve ever seen, I would highly recommend her to anyone needing some work done.
My dear sweet Alli. For the last month has been making me so very proud. I have never pushed, encouraged, or suggested that any of my kids follow in my footsteps and become runners. Preferring rather to let them find their own passions in life. She has been averaging 30-35 miles per week on six days a week, all on the treadmill. Proud poppy indeed! She’ll be leaving for Oregon next month and I’m already finding myself reaching for the tissues.
Coach John Tully has been awarded his official Team Nebraska singlet. His service to our Wednesday Night Community Outreach Program has elevated him to the status of Good Mate. John also serves on our Road Race Management Committee, we are lucky to have such a giving individual. Good luck to all of our Wednesday night athletes that will be contesting the Pig Man Half Ironman and Olympic Ironman this weekend in Iowa. Amazing athletes one and all!
And Shannon Mauser-Suing of Lincoln has also joined the mates. Shannon finished 8th at the Lincoln Marathon in 3:12:24 and is looking to take the next step towards breaking the 3 hour barrier. Our Team Nebraska women are getting truly deep in the 3-3:15 range and that bodes well for them all.
Have a good and happy weekend!
