Best wishes to our Good Mates this weekend.  Luka Thor, Eric Rasmussen, Matt Pohren, Cory Logsdon, and Lee Anderson will vie  for the Overall title at the Kansas City Hospital Hill Team Challenge.  Jen Viehrig, Amanda Lee, Megan Zavorka and Meghan Schneider will battle for the women’s crown.  Matt Schneider will have his first race back since being struck by a truck a few weeks back, his arms are out of the casts and his legs are ready roll the 10K, Linda & I will both use that race as our last tune up leading into Grandma’s.  York Thomas will kick the 5K, as mentioned before, he is So Serious.

Andrew Jacob, Shain Kephart, and Agustin Delgado will tackle the Dam to Dam 20K, also on Saturday.  Tough that both of these great midwest events are scheduled on the same day.  And did I mention there will be a combined 10s of thousands of prize dollars available between the two races?  Missouri and Iowa, doing it right by the elites and we sure appreciate the support.  Only the Lincoln Marathon in Nebraska has grasped this type of forward thinking for developing athletes.  I dropped a penny in the well, closed my eyes and wished hard, we’ll see if it comes true and other races start supporting our aspiring elite athletes.

Next Wednesday evening at Burke Stadium, 6:00 pm.  David Adam’s fundraiser for the Trials is turning into a big deal.  We will have a Bunch of door prizes to raffle off including a brand new Garmin 210.
