A lot of local fun stuff this past weekend, please excuse my absence.

Across the pond Sara Hall laid one down for the ages taking 2nd (2:22:01) at the London Flora Marathon.  Fellow American Molly Seidel finished 6th (2:25:13).

And  some damn serious racing over in Des Moines at the WR Elite 5K.   Jay Welp took the win and movied up to number 2 all time Iowa performance in 14:19.   Eighteen men under 15:00.  Peter Falcon, Nolan Zimmer and Andy Vasquez represented LRC Racing, Jay’s favorite whipping boys.  Missy Rock took the win for  the women in a very fast 16:09.  Elite level racing alive and well next door in Iowa.  Nice.

Jay made a habit of beating  up on LRC while representing Nebraska Run Guru  Elite.  Some things never change.

Today I celebrate my two favorite teams.  Our DC West Falcon ladies are ranked #1 in Class C cross country.  Undefeated on the year, the first and only time any sport from little Valley Nebraska has achieved any state ranking at all.

The lasses sporting the sweet sweats donated by our marathon.

And over in Illinois, our ALAH Knights ranked #8.  We are proud sponsors of both DC West and ALAH!
