The Twin Rivers YMCA Freedom Runs are this Sunday morning. Twenty one gun salute at the start. Huge American flag hanging over the finish. Reputation as the fastest half marathon in Nebraska. By my course record criteria, not depth of performance. I can’t give entries away to you folks.
Over a ton of fun in the sun. I picked and boxed another 100 pounds of tomatoes yesterday. Sailed past the 2000 pound mark. Been selling 4-500 pounds/week for the last month. Still a quarter ton yet on the vine.
We cut down our 65′ male mulberry on Tuesday. Upgraded my old Poulan (now Linda’s) to a Real Man’s saw, Stihl Farm Boss with the 20″ bar. Firewood for a whole year but not ready until next. But first the splitting and stacking.
And in the midst of it all a stranger. He’s been by three times. Bought produce the first time. Bought my convertible the second time. He called from my driveway at daybreak this morning. I stepped outside and we discussed his potential offer for the Bar None. All enough to make my head spin.
Zach Hine and Whitney Bevins Lazarra. Zach’s 1:04:48 at the Freedom Run qualified him for the 2016 Olympic Trials Marathon. The fastest half marathon on Nebraska soil in over 30 years, Dylan.
