Rest in peace Trent Tiller. You were polite, well mannered, respectful, and represented the very best of your generation. The Elkhorn South senior was killed in a motorcycle accident yesterday in North Dakota. Prayers and meditations to his family and to my dear sweet Katie who feels the loss closer than most. Sometimes it is really true, only the good die young.
Now to running. Congratulations to some of our midwest region USATF post collegiate athletes running in the KU Relays. Justin Garrard of the Kansas City Smoke finished 5th in the open 5000 in 14:43.54. His mate Aaron Davidson (1:10:30 at last year’s Freedom Run Half) ran 31:38 for 6th in the open 10000. My former mate Cory Logsdon rounded out the top 10 in 32:10.
Of course the 119th Boston Marathon is this coming Monday. We’ll have Cameron Cummings and Amber Sargent in kit. I’ll have a lot more to say come Monday and Tuesday.
Completed my apprenticeship in roofing yesterday. Got the chicken coop fully shingled. I might be able to say that it is better insulated and now has better shingles than this old house.
My first foray of the season hunting morels was a bust on Tuesday. But the lilacs bloomed yesterday and that’s the Good Mother’s cue. Now we just need a wee bit of rain….
“Just imagine,possibilities!” I hear this commercial a dozen times every morning between six and seven. “Mommy makeover! Regain your pre pregnancy form!” Did I just hear correct they’re offering a special on augmentations? Get two breasts and the third one is free! What?!?
Feliz Viernes and hug your kid hard today.
Thanks to my buddy and mate Kray Zeller for working up this sweet logo for my event management company. It speaks to me on a lot of levels. Nebraska Run Guru Events, LLC is proud to be a sponsor of Nebraska Run Guru Elite!
