For our mate Pete Kostelnick anyway:
“Saddled up with the wife last Thursday morning and flew out to the North Carolina shore. Took a ferry out to Bald Head Island, the pristine and beautiful site of Badwater Cape Fear 51.4 mile and 50k races on Saturday. Stayed two nights in a house on the beachfront with several other runners and their significant others/family. The race started at the lighthouse and swerved around the paved golf cart roads on the island for 10 miles before hitting the trail and then the sand for the majority of the race. I went out fairly conservatively in 5th or 6th before picking it up on the sand in 3rd by my lonesome. I found myself about 12 minutes back of 1st and 2nd at a turnaround on the beach before picking up pace as the tide went out and the sand became more runnable. I ended up finishing in 6 hrs 38 min, one minute (and within sight) of 2nd, and 9 minutes behind 1st place. I kicked well late and even skipped a few aide stations, but just didn’t have enough to catch the two young bucks from Wisconsin. Brew to Brew in less than three weeks…”
And our mate Cameron Cummings has this to report as he preps for the Boston Marathon:
“Life is good here in Boston — training has been a little different this year in the middle of the city with all of the snow, but it’s been going well. At the end of my fellowship this year, I’m moving back to Wisconsin, about 40 minutes from where I grew up, for my first real doctor job I’m pretty excited about it.” We wish Cameron a great big Giddyup and are proud and pleased that he continues to choose Nebraska Run Guru Elite as his club.
And locally we are proud to announce the addition of Kray Zeller to Nebraska Run Guru Elite. Kray is a tough, tough masters runner with range from 5K through 50K. He’ll debut the kit at this weekend’s No Frills 10 Mile. Most the rest of us will be at the State Farm 10 Mile, the Mo-Pac Trail should be serving up some interesting racing conditions given the recent rains.
Fast approaching our 200th entrant into the 9th annual Ni-Bthaska-Ke, online registration will remain open for one more week, be sure and get yours in today!
