We are well over a hundred entries already and have capped it at 600.  Amazing when you consider we had just over 50 total entrants the first year.  Humble beginnings with a grand vision realized, thank you Ivan Marsh for being a True Nebraska Treasure.

In the better late than never department:  Kyle Custer made his Team Nebraska debut at last weekend’s Phoenix Half Marathon.  I spoke with him prior to leaving and his modest goal was “to break 1:20:00”, he turned in a 1:13:54, not bad mate.  Kyle will make his marathon debut in Lincoln with the goal of “just getting my Boston qualifier”.  Matt Pohren ran the 3000 at the Holiday Inn Invite turning in a nice 5th overall finish in 8:45.  Andrew Jacob contested the mile and pushed his lanky frame around the tight turns in 4:31.

David Adams will run the 3000 at this weekend’s NWU Invitational.  I’m dipping my plume getting ready to re-write our Team Nebraska record book.  Speaking of which, that is a little project I’ll be working on soon, you will be amazed at some of the club’s all time bests.

The below envelope came in with Hannah Voelker’s Trail Run registration.  Our Registration Chair Jody Green was so taken with the artwork that she googled the artist and Viola!  Hannah is an accomplished artist out of Lincoln and keeps a blog at the link below that features some of her work.  Jody has insisted on keeping the envelope dreaming of untold wealth at some far off point in the future.  Please check Hannah’s blog, she is really quite a talented artist.
