I want to take a moment and give the old sombrero a Mighty Tip to acknowledge mi amigo Jim Estes being elected to the USA Track & Field Board of Directors.  I ran a column a couple years ago,
detailing our long and storied history of service together.  More recently announced that Jim has joined us at Valley O.NE Marathon as our Elite Athlete Coordinator.  I’ll say again perhaps the best connected individual in our sport today, 100% on board with our efforts to make Valley O.NE a national class spring marathon.

This is USATF Nebraska.  This is the Local Value of USATF in Nebraska.  This is Valley O.NE Marathon.  This is Jim Estes and me and Linda and Lindsay and the rest of our team that are committed to bringing Real Racing to Nebraska and American athletes.  Determined to usher in a new day of marathoning in Nebraska.  Absolute in our resolve.  Not for the last time, Giddyup!

Jim Estes.  He knows what is good for American athletes.  So does the Valley O.NE Marathon.
