#FARMSTRONG REVISITED

Owning up to my missed called shot on a new event record at Trek.  Ivan Marsh won his 12th consecutive (4:43). Sarah Bickerstaff (5:55) led the women.  Liz Starbuck learned the importance of having a seeded number.

The Blackstone District Love Run 5K  had 75 finishers led by Eric Klein (16:50) and Christy Nielsen (19:45).  Put on by IronHawk Endurance just down the street here in Waterloo.  Brad Hildebrandt’s venture off to a good start, he’ll be hosting a few road races here this year.  Waterloo, the new epicenter of Nebraska Road Racing?

So nice to  see Jay Welp (1st- 8:36.40 pr) and Colin Morrissey (2nd- 8:37 pr) and Cory Logsdon (7th- 8:48.29) honing  their speed at the Nebraska Tune Up  3K.  Personal bests for Jay and  Colin.  In the 5000 meters Peter Falcon got his own W and new pr in a nice 14:58.  Way to work fellas!

USATF Indoor National Champs this past weekend.  Of local interest Shelby Houlihan pulled the double winning the 3000 (9:00.08) and 1500 (4:13.07).

Shelby’s mom and dad both raced  the 2008 Omaha Mile.  Connie Prince-Houlihan beating Bob to the line by a couple of  steps.  She was age 50 and ran 5:17 on the lightning fast course.
