Valley O.NE Marathon is likely the most ambitious marathon in Nebraska history.  Like all good things that are worth the wait, well, it will be worth the wait.

The last 12 weeks have been a whirlwind.  Five to six meetings a week, in person, zoom, phone, email, text.  You gentle readers have had a front row seat to the genesis of the Valley O.NE Marathon.

RGS readership has shifted significantly over the last 24 months.  Previously 90% of readers were from Nebraska, that number now less than 20%.

Evidenced by Valley O.NE Marathon registrations coming in from all over the United States.

What is in my message that resonates so far beyond the Good Life?

Leaving all the fluff and stuff
Novelty, ok, enough is enough
Costumes, colorful, noisy and frilly
Making running and racing look just silly
We aim to to bring our Real Sport back
Real Racing on Roads, C’mon Jill, C’mon Jack
Its not always them against you
It’s about the best you can do
Get trained up for your ultimate race
Run Valley O.NE, put a smile on your face!
