Good Life Halfsy
The 3rd installment of this amazingly organized race took place this past Sunday. 6,000 runners packed with a competitive field took to the streets of Lincoln. Nebraska is lucky to have such well planned and executed race directed by Pink Gorilla Events. Luka Thor continued to impress placing 2nd overall in a deep field. Luka was 3 seconds off from the top. Peter Falcon ran a PR, 1:11:10! Cory and Colin rounded out the scoring for the Men's Division taking home first place! Josiah Belzer, Blake Kanger, and Pierce Tallichet also had solid performances. The Team Nebraska women ran well to take third place in the Women's division with Kira Belzer, Jenn Freeman, Megan Nissen, and Taylor Johnson scoring.
G.O.A.T.z Trail Runs
The Trail Nebraska contingent continues to impress. In the 50K, Cory and Tim Langdon repeated in the top 3 both running strong. This year they were joined by honorary Trail Nebraska member, Kaci Lickteig in second overall, first female. Miguel Odorica had a great top ten finish placing 7th overall. Emily Langdon had a big PR placing in the women's top ten.
In the 21 Mile, Tim McGargill ran well enough to take the win.
On a foggy humid day, Luka was able to put the conditions aside and place 2nd overall in the half. We are proud of his efforts and look forward to an exciting 2017!
