No Meat Athlete coming to Lincoln

There are many endurance athletes out there who are having great success on a plant based diet.  One of them, Matt Frazier, will be making a stop in Lincoln on his nationwide book tour.  Matt, the "No Meat Athlete" will be at the Lincoln Running Company October 16th.

If you are interested in learning how a plant based diet can fuel your endurance efforts, I encourage you to check out Matt's website, follow his blog, or better yet, come visit him on one of his tour stops.

Omaha Half

This post is a little late, but congrats to my wife who completed the Omaha half marathon last weekend, 5 months after having a baby!  Margot and I were on hand to cheer her on.

Ultra Grand Slam

People ask what I will do if and when I finish my 50 state goal.  I would definitely like to do an ultramarathon some day.  However, I do not think I will do FOUR IN ONE YEAR like Tim McCargill.

The Omaha man just became the first Nebraskan to complete the Ultra Grand Slam, completing four prestigious 100 mile trail races in the same year!

He has only been running for a few years.  Wow.  Read his story here.
