Christina King – Ran leg on Alumni 4x400m Relay Team Ran Leg on a 4 x 1 lap team in the Alumni Showdown

4 x 1 Lap Relay (Alumni Showdown) – 1st Place (Cheto Cerda, Nate Preston*, Lee Anderson, Matt Schneider) Here’s a link to a video taken on the backstretch of the track during the 4×1 lap. Can’t see finish too well but it’s still pretty cool. Coach Brink has a vidoe from up above the track hopefully will get that on youtube somehow as well. It was the highlight of the day for all of us, it was a ton of fun! Back and forth and pulled it out in the last 40m.[youtube]

Luka Thor has moved to West Omaha and has been doing some training out at the dojo.  Knocking his loops out in the 40:00 range while amazing the merely mortal.  He’s going to be a great addition to our Omaha crew.

Well I look a little goofy this morning after having my tooth extracted.  10+ years of eating with chop sticks and one bad bite ends a pearly white, drats.  Had one good last meal this past weekend at one of  Omaha’s Classic Steakhouses, Cascios.  The steaks were sublime and the accompanying sides were just as delicious.  Fried ravioli and house made blue cheese dressing just sent the meal over the top.  Chris Saub playing his incredible one man show, and Bill Weeks & Kelly Crawford treating was just so much a jus on the plate!  Thanks buds!

Found out that Kelly Crawford was instrumental in the design of the famous Clock Tower on the UNO Campus, a story that indicates just how many talents he has.
