5150

Congratulations to the following Omaha Endurance Group athletes on their success at the 5150 Kansas City Triathlon last weekend:

Sara Garcia, Javi Garcia, Michelle Reitz,    Brandon Fenster, Anne Anderson, Lou Anderson, Polly Faltin,     Michelle Bandur, Amee Rief,  Molly Pearson, Cade Pearson, Bill Weeks, Danielle Galvin, Steve Stender, Lisa Martone, Katie Cordes.  Enita Larson took 1st in her age group, wow!   Lots of prs and hardware and even more fun and fitness for all involved.  Lisa Martone summed it up best: “Thanks to wednesday track workouts I had a personal best run today”.

Hot as the dickens out there this morning.  What should have been an easy set of quarters turned out to be a half-fast set.  The first 5 well under the target of :90, then quickly crept up as the temps blew above 80.   The wind was blowing 30+ too, seemed to sap the life out of the legs in a hurry.  Listened to the body and will be recharged for an early morning effort manana.

The Boystown 5 Mile and 1 Mile races are going to be fast this year.  David Adams will be running the mile as will Amanda Lee.  I’m going out on a limb and predicting new event records for them both.  Peter Falcon will run the 5 Mile and he’ll be tough to catch.   We’ve pulled Luka and Matty P. and will save their legs for Hospital Hill just six days later.  The women’s 5 Mile is always a big surprise.

The Kids Fit Program has been canceled for tonight due to the forecast of sever weather rolling in around 5 pm.  I’ll keep an eye on the radar and will post on our OEG facebook page if there is a similar change to our plans for the adults.

Our OEG Mates celebrate their accomplishment.  Triathletes never cease to amaze me, I’ve never even tried one.  A tip of the sombrero to all of you!
