Biggest tip of the sombrero to Peter Falcon. Next biggest to Colin Morrissey.
These two lads arrived at Team Nebraska just during my exit, neither would “run for me”. I had anticipated their post collegiate careers, had high expectations. But these things take time.
Peter ran 30:42 on the track at the Kansas Relays this past weekend. 15:28, 15:12 splits. Unless I’m mistaken, the fastest 10K by a Team Nebraska runner since Aaron Carrizales’ 29:31 in 2004.
I’m proud that every Team Nebraska men’s club record, excepting Eric Lund’s 51.62 400M Hurdles, occurred prior to my departure in 2012. And every women’s club record excepting Ashley Miller’s hatful of road and track marks from 2013.
All club marks, regardless of kit, are the legacy that future generations should chase.
Those marks, they are Worth The Wait.
