So very much to cover it will take a couple days.  So very easy to pick a starting point.

Grant Wintheiser, made me and all of Nebraska proud Saturday.  Personal best 1:06:15 to finish 11th overall.  Youngest athlete in the top 40.  5th American.  Fastest half marathon by a Nebraska runner since Mike Morgan in 2004.  Real Deal.  Real Racing.  Peter Falcon, Team Nebraska (33rd, 1:10:19), Nolan Border, LRC Racing, (36th, 1:11:30), and Cory Logsdon, Team Nebraska, (44th, 1:13:28) also making it a nice Nebraska contingent.

Nicole Norris (Lincoln, NE)  made her marathon debut on her 36th birthday.  Nicole reported in to Linda every day since January.  Every day.  Workouts designed specifically based on feedback.  Nicole now holds  the distinction of the fastest marathon debut of any female athlete I’ve ever coached.  3:13:52!

These two fine athletes represent the very essence of Nebraska Run Guru Elite, Inc.  As this old guru sees it.  Going after that highest fruit, potential realized.
