  This camp is for people who have never run before to advanced runners. 

  Ralph Miller, long time running coach and winner of the Lincoln Marathon in 1984 will be coaching us all through the 16 weeks of training.  

  Some strength and flexibility training will be added each week as well as nutrition recommendation.

From the Editor
..to Bee.. or not to Bee..
Noble Slings and Arrows
 
 
I find myself conflicted..
 
(Oh, NO, Joe, say it isn't SO!)
 
I am a big fan of BUILD events.
 
I have had a great time and made some wonderful memories by getting out, and working along side some of the Greats, like Dee and Nancy, and John, Jerod, Todd and Mike.
 
I am also a devoted fan of Louisville creative talent and initiative. We have such an abundant supply.
 
Creativity:
 
As a business person, I am in awe of the Art Chicks phenomena that Melody invented. A 100% Louisville Invention. The pure organic craze that was born in a then relatively unknown Louisville. I definitely don't fit the demographic, but  that does not prevent me from being awe-struck by the brilliance of that idea. Intuition, determination, creativity.
 
You GO girl!
 
I am also a fan of Terri Scholtings inspirations, and we all enjoyed the heck out of the 150 Year Trivia Challenge . John Plucknett discovered the fact that we had a major Birthday coming up, and Terri devised an Event to Make it Memorable, Dee and Nancy and Paul and the whole bunch pulled it together into a very memorable event.
 
Terri has cooked up a brand new  event, coordinated it with the LHS folks and it is going to be every bit as exciting and memorable as the Trivia Contest!
 
 
 
bee.jpg
 
here is my conflict: I Can't Spell!
 
 
I have been meaning to learn but something always comes up.
 
I get along fine by Googling a word, and getting the proper spelling, but I am not sure that our free Louisville WiFi extends out to the LHS Gym, and even if it does, somebody might find fault with me Googling words in a spelling Bee!
 
This is going to be a little different BEE-ing part of a team of 4, maybe they will not ask me to spell anything. Even so, it sounds like a bunch of fun. There will be costumes, and Bee Face paint, and funny team names, and the usual cast of Louisville characters acting up.
It will probably not BEE the first time I looked silly.
nobody will notice me in my yellow and black jump suit
 
OK Terri, I will BEE there!
Buzzzzzzzzzzzz...

A New One On Me
GEO Caching
(this is why you should make the Monthly BUILD Meeting)
 
  geocaching.jpg
 
 Yesterday's BUILD Meeting Featured a Wonderful Presentation from Pat Joyner -
 
Marketing Louisville, and BUILD Events
 
Lots of great ideas and research was provided by Pat's students at Wesleyan University
At the end we were just talking about novel ideas, and Pat mentioned Geocaching as something that her college students were aware of. Mike Krambeck knew about it, and several other BUILD members as well. Beats Me!
 
Turns out, it is kind of a sport that ties into the overall Eco-tourism topic that the State of Nebraska is trying to promote. Basically it is an ongoing treasure hunt, with som 700,000 ative treasure locations across the globe - coordinated through the internet.
 
geocoin.jpg
 It provides an interesting and inexpensive opportunity to couple events with this geo caching treasure hunting and draw people to a location, especially interesting rural locations.
 
So, given all the creativity around here - don't be surprised if you hear that BUILD is hosting a high tech Treasure Hunt this Spring.
