NO COMMENT

Des Moines Marathon.  Top 6 finishers all “C” level Kenyans.  I’ll skip the rest of the commentary on the advice of Linda.

Kansas City Marathon.  Chuck Teater wins in maybe the fastest Midwest marathon in recent memory, 2:10:19.  Second overall 2:43:26.  I’ll skip the rest of the commentary on the advice of Linda.

Nebraska Marathon.  Our mate Coralie winning her age group and 17th overall in her 26.2 debut.  I’ll skip the commentary on the rest of the race at the advice of Linda.

Dogwood Canyon 50K in Lampe, MO.  Nate Hay in 4:58;44 and Christy Swearingen in 5:22:04 take the wins on some hellacious hills.  Good to meet some of you Trail Nerds, looking forward to seeing you all again at Ni-Bthaska-Ke!

Every swinging Johnson across the Midwest has heard about our mate Pete.  I drove over 1000 miles since last Friday’s liberal post and didn’t meet a runner that wasn’t pulling  for him (followed closely by “So you’re the runguru”).  His support vehicle completely totaled over the weekend, Pete and crew unscathed thank the gods.  Our Jeremy Morris and everyone’s Kaci Lickteig also shining fame across MO and beyond, the work of these ultra kids making a (new) name for Nebraska.
