Congratulations to the Kansas City Smoke! They have emerged as the top USA Track & Field Elite Development Club in the midwest. Great results at this past weekend’s USA Club Track & Field National Championships in NYC.
Team Nebraska always had a “friendly” rivalry with the Smoke. It was friendly because we consistently kicked their butt. I’m not so sure how friendly it should be any more. Their Smoke’s Mens Team finished 5th overall, their Women, 13th overall. Team Nebraska’s Men finished 8th overall by virtue of Eric Lund winning the 400M Hurdles and Matt Pohren taking 3rd in the 5000 and 5th in the Steeplechase. Pretty good for a 2 man team. Team Nebraska failed to send any women to the meet for the first time in 6 years.

This more than anything motivates me to get Nebraska Run Guru Elite up and running. NRGE will represent at next year’s Club Champs. And we will kick some butt!
I got up early this morning and started my burn pile. Easy does it, goal for today is to reduce it by 25%. Hard work and very gratifying.
Three to one. When I lived in “Richerville” I used to shower before my run to loosen up. Then another shower post run to clean up. And then perhaps a third if I worked in the yard or otherwise dirtied up. And now that I’m a Flat Rat, it is once a day, in the evening, washing away the sum total of an entire day’s good, honest efforts.
Great Run yesterday. The first time Linda & I have struck out for a longer run. If you saw a couple of happy faces running along West Dodge Road yesterday morning, yep, that was us.
