PURSE

Or Murse if you prefer the European androginization.  Good news any way you shake it out.  This year’s Corporate Cup 10K has increased the prize money for the Elite field:
1. $600
2. $350
3. $200
4. $100
5. $50
Big Thanks to Kevin Bonney, Adam Butler, and the entire staff at the American Lung Association.  This race has made Great Strides towards accommodating the real runners and racers over the last couple of years and we certainly appreciate everything!  Now on to that pesky little matter of a new course record….

12 women convicts on the highway and none picking up trash.  It must be the Wisconsin Ragnar Relay.  Our own Jody Green never stops.  The 50 Miler last month was just a tune up for this overnight event that ran the 196 miles from Winona, MN to Minneapolis.   Jody ended up running nearly a million miles, pretty amazing what she has accomplished this summer.  Her team of Rick’s Dirty Dozen must have caused quite the stir, especially among those like me that are fans of women’s prison movies.

Cory Logsdon continued his marathon prep by winning this weekend’s Millard Public Schools 5K.  He won by nearly a minute and a half on the non-certified course, one last good speed test.  Our mate Kraig Vanderbeek was 3rd overall and first master.

I did another 16 miler this Saturday morning.  Included 2 X 2 miles @ goal 10K pace, hit them spot on in 13:47 and 13:43 respectively.  Linda put the middle 6 in at 41:58, catch her if you can or just have some fun.  We were joined by Anthony Oberle, I was hoping to have this young stud in the Corporate Cup field but his rehab of a broken foot will delay his local road debut.

Got my full compliment of Brooks winter running gear this weekend.  Equilibrium Wind Briefs, Thermal Wind Boxers, Infiniti Short Tight, Infiniti 3/4 Tight, Infiniti Tight, all as good as it gets for bubble wrapping the goods.

And I’ve pre-ordered my Pure Project minimalist shoes, opting for the Pure Connect, the lightest of the lightweight.  Available October 1st, I can hardly weight/wait!
