Thanks for checking back in today, I enjoyed a day away from the home office yesterday.

Big Tips and Muchas Gracias to Cabela’s, The World’s Foremost Outfitter.  The Ni-Bthaska-Ke Trail Runs are now enjoying our 9th year of sponsorship by the Sidney based company.  Omaha Steaks returns as post race feed sponsor, them’s good eats!  Regal Printing did a very slick and professional job on our 6X9 heavy stock postcard.  Changing things up a bit this year by encouraging BYOB.  We’ll still have some of the area’s finest hand crafted beers though, think Zip Line for starters.

Nebraska Run Guru Elite is proud to have Jeremy Morris entered into the USA 100 Mile Trail National Championships on January 31st.  Contested on the funky footing of Huntsville State Park (God Bless Texas!), this is the same course that made a man of El Jefe a year ago.  Jeremy had a nice 40 miler in 5:03:30 recently, bodes well don’t it?  Pete Kostelnick ran 40 miles in 5:17 on just about the same day.  Farm Long, Farm Strong!

The Two Rivers Valentine’s Day 10K (Saturday, February 14th, 10:00 a.m.) is pleased to announce the addition of the DC West Challenge.  We will be hosting any and all middle and high schoolers that want to race the 1.5 mile loop of Two Rivers State Recreation Area.  There will be no cost to the runners, amenitites are limited to fast running, official times, and bragging rights.  If you’ve got some kiddos you want entered, shoot me an email at runguru@cox.net

The Nebraska Wesleyan Invitational is today at 11:30 at the Devaney Center.  The Mark Colligan Memorial is tomorrow at noon, same venue.  Some chances for the fastest of you to get out and show us what you got, giddyup!

Lot’s of the itis and algias going around.  And the measles have kicked ebola to the curb.  If you’re illin, take it easy this weekend.  If you’re feeling strong then head down to La Platte for the next installment of No Frills.

Ron Olsen and Roxi Erickson will be in NRGE kit for the 2015 Lincoln Marathon.  Ron will continue his streak of having run every single edition.  Roxi can’t win anymore but doesn’t have to because 9 or 10 times is enough.

Gross mistake.  I erred earlier this week when I said Coach Steve Kunasek labored at Omaha South.  I was roundly scolded and reminded that he actually worked the sidelines at Gross Catholic High.
