BAXTER SHINES

Aubrey Baxter represented on the biggest of stages this past weekend, and with distinction!  She tossed the Hammer 64.96 meters, good enough for 7th overall.  Can you say Giddyup to a Hammer Thrower?

Chris Tegtmeier took a number 6 seed into the 20K Walk but was felled by exhaustion with 1 kilometer to go.  He collapsed to the track and required an IV before medical released him.  Chris will be back and ready for next year’s Olympic Trials.

Our Elkhorn Girl Alice Schmidt made the Women’s 800 team,  was it the Run Guru Bump on Friday?

Jose Badillo competed in the Senior Games this past weekend.  Not a full report yet but he did earn a Silver Medal in the 1500!  Jose also competed in the 5K on Saturday and 10K on Sunday, results as available.   El Viejo Mas Rapido!

Kaci Lickteig continues her torrid summer schedule of  over mileage and racing turning in another 100+ mile week and finishing 3rd overall at yesterday’s Sienna Francis House 10K in 38:11.

The Road to Omaha 5K had a strong TNB showing with Matt Pohren (2nd, 15:52), Cory Logsdon (3rd, 16:40), and Ben Shultz (7th, 17:55) all running good races.  Kyle Custer was the overall winner beating Matt to the tape by a mere 5 seconds.  Nice racing!

Bad news in the HO front.  My trusty HP picked up a Root Kit virus and will be put down after retrieval of my documents and photos and inbox, the only three things they could save, sniff.

Good news is my technological genius of a son is building me an Uber Computer and I should be good to go by Friday.

Proud of my Dear Sweet Alli, she returned Saturday from her third Habitat For Humanity work trip.  Ohio, Wyoming and now Wisconson this year. Service to others, a chip off the old block and I could not be prouder.
