Wow! Almost 50 people at Millard West last night. Half of them there for the expert coaching provided by Linda Barnhart and your’s truly. The other half for the expert coaching of Leigh Officer in her capacity with the Omaha Racers. Those youngsters are headed to Minnesota today for the USATF Regional Junior Championships. The top finishers will then go to the Junior Olympics, we wish them all Great Speed, Great Throws, and Great Jumps. And we hope to see you on TNB in about 15 years!
My old buddy Broulio & I were watching his son Victor go through the paces, the lad has a Very Bright future as a distance runner. Even though we’ve known each other for many years he was quite surprised to see what we do on Wednesday nights. That would be my invitation to everyone in the Omaha Metro. Don’t believe anything you hear or read, good or bad, rather come out and witness first hand the work we do. You’ll be warmly welcomed into our ever expanding group and will make some great friends and training partners while improving your fitness as a bonus.
The mates are landing at LaGuardia just about now. Y’all go for your shake out runs, get off your feet, and get ready to rumble! Please do check in on how they perform this weekend by checking results at: http://www.usatf.org/events/2011/USATFClubTFChampionships/
We got a lot of Good Work done at our RRM committee meeting last night. For your fall/winter schedules we will host the 6th annual Swamp Stomp on Oct. 22, the 5th annual Monster Dash on Oct. 29, the 2nd annual Jingle Bell Run on Dec. 24th, and the 2nd annual Hair of the Dog Run on January 1st. The first two will be the most fun you have at a race this year and the latter two will once again provide needed support to the Open Door Mission and the Food Bank of the Heartland. An exciting addition to the Hair of the Dog Run will be a K-9 run, get some socks on those puppies and come on out!
Met with Bob Harris of FrontRunIt this morning to go over our digital brochures for the Stomp & Dash. These will be similar to but far more extensive than what was produced for the Ni-Bthaska-Ke Trail Run earlier this year. Bob is the consummate professional with all things relating to Web Development, marketing, and print needs. Much more than just a hobby and it shows in his unparalleled first class products. All of your web needs presented in easy to understand and user friendly format. You can contact Bob at: Bob@FrontRunIt.com or visit his website at www.FrontRunIt.com
Hope to see all of you at this Saturday’s Run For Justin. One of the most embraced events on the annual calendar, TNB will once again be out in full support of Dan and Marti Nealon. A great cause and you know we will be in it to win it! http://runforjustin.org/runinfo.aspx
