March 12, 2011 Guys chase Girls! What could be better? The second annual Leprechaun chase that took place on Saturday at the Strategic Air and Space Museum just south of Ashland NE, did had just that offering. Gals got to start 5 minutes and 30 seconds before the guys. First gender to finish got there first post race beer for free! Lots of incentive to win. Sorry to say, this years race was won by the gals. Bitter sweet!
There was a good showing by both the Mud Mafia and the Gallup gang of runners. No official count, but good numbers by both. Of course, team Run Jovi made an appearance with great fanfare! They always bring a party atmosphere to any race. Nice job guys!
My race went well. One of the new features that I have never seen at a race before is results receipt! They had someone with a laptop and a receipt printer ready to print out your results. It was awesome. Nice work, race director of the year Ben Cohoon who not only directs this race, but the also popular Market to Market Relay here in Omaha. The dude is a rock star! Thanks for another great race Ben! My time of 48:26 was excellent considering the temps, hills and wind that buffeted the runners. I was good with it.
Look who is coming out of the shoot last?
