Too skinny to be Mick Freeman.  Too handsome to be Craig Christians.  But I did my best impression of both over the last couple of months by hosting our Valley Forge Winter Series.  Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery fellas.  And in the process found a whole new running community.  I’ve referenced WECRAWL in previous posts, tongue in cheek, but have found that there really is a Weekend Closet Runners and Walkers League.  Fine folks all.  And Valey Forge gave them a venue.  No pressure, no fancy pants, no 4% body fat, just good people that like to get out of doors no matter the weather.

We’ll kick off the finale tomorrow morning at 9:00.  $5 entry for the 5 or 10K, $10 for the half marathon.  USATF Certified course, official times and maybe a door prize or two.

Getting the Ni-Bthaska-Ke Trail run under full steam too.  I can use a couple more volunteers, if you want to feel really good about yourself shoot me an email  You’ll receive free food, free beer, and a special race memento.  Thanks to those of you from the Omaha Running Club that have already stepped up.

I’ll ask this one final time for the 2015 campaign:  Why would you pay extra for beers if you’ve already paid an entry fee?  Popular selling point to this race for sure.  Thanks again to Zipline and Upstream Brewing Co.
