CROSS COUNTRY

Sending good Giddyup vibes to every thinclad headed to Kearney for manana’s meet.  Especially our  DC West Falcons.

The USATF Nebraska Association XC Champs are coming up on November 11.  Thanks to our association President Scott Rainbolt and our newly elected LDR Chair for getting things set up.  Back in Omaha this year at the fabled Walnut Grove Park.   Will any of our lads approach Seth Hersch’s course record of 14:52?  We’ll see.  His remarkable mark set as a high schooler.  Ponder this, Seth may very well turn out to be the best ever runner from Nebraska.  Omaha Proud!  (gnashing of teeth, pulling of beard, much wailing at the Platte)

Speaking of youth, 15 year old Tierney Wolfgram finished 6th overall at the Twin Cities Marathon.  Good time for any athlete, 2:40:03, six minutes faster than my personal  best, how about yours?

On the other end of the spectrum 70 year old Jeannie Rice ran the Chicago Marathon in an age group world record 3:27:50.

Good luck to our Good Mate, young Tristan Nelson in his half iron man debut in Tempe Arizona this weekend.  Your Valley 7 Lakes Marathon Race Director dipping his toes into the triathlon.
