No other place on the planet to be this morning if you’re a runner, I’m there in spirit with many of you. I’ll have a recap later today with results from Boston.
For now plenty of other action from the mates over the weekend:
Andrea Rich ran 3:30:00 at the Salt Lake City Marathon on Saturday. This is the exact same time she ran at Chicago last October. I’m encouraging Andrea to select a marathon at sea level with great weather for her next try.
Jose Badillo finished 16th in the 70+ age group at yesterday’s London Marathon turning in a nice 4:13:58.
Jordan Tucker was first overall at the Maverick Stampede 8K XC Run in 28:33.
At the Sioux City Relays we had a good group including the following:
Matt Schneider ran his fastest Steeplechase in 2 years running 9:21.81. He followed later Saturday afternoon with a 5K pr of 15:32.04. Nice running Matt!
Matt Heesch made his barrier debut (hadn’t run a single practice steeple workout) running 10:07.98. Happy with that as it qualifies him for USA Club Nationals. He followed with a 4:224.12 1500 meters.
Andrew Jacob doubled in the 800 (1:59.24) and 1500 (4:11.00).
Megan Zavorka ran a pr in the 1500 with 4:47.49.
Another of my Boston Marathon memorabalia, Joseph Kamau’s 1997 2nd Overall Orefors Swedish Crystal Bowl. He didn’t want to carry it back to Kenya only to “feed the goats” out of it.
And a priceless autographed Leroy Neiman titled “Boston Marathon”. Leroy is one of the most famous American artists of the last 50 years. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed sharing some of my Boston collectibles, plenty more for next year!
