Rodeo Run 8
July 22, 2017
Before I get into the RD stuff, here’s a photo of me from the 8-mile race — since I’ve got stats from that one leading this thing off…
Months of preparation came to fruition with my fifth edition as Race Director of the Rodeo Run this year in my hometown of Pretty Prairie. It’s never my fastest running, especially this year with the heat — but I never really care.
I’m just happy when there are no issues and everyone has a good time.
I had a blast seeing the phenomenal turnout this year, seeing old friends and making new ones.
This year, I chose Kelly Green for our shirts, because, well… I like green.
We got some great sponsor help this year, too. This was the busiest the backs of our shirts have been, and that means good helpers.
Like this kid…
Rodeo Run 1
July 22, 2017
The 1-mile is always a fun time and this year was no exception. Our finisher total jumped from 75 to 190 as Main Street and Park Street were a bit on the packed side this year. What a fun sight to see in Pretty Prairie, Kansas.
I had a great time at this year’s race once again and I am extraordinarily grateful for all the support along the way. We raised a bunch of money toward PPHS athletics, specifically the cross country and track programs.
This year’s total reached $3,440, while I have now helped raise $9,295 since 2012 for PPHS athletics. So proud to be a Bulldog.
And now, here are some shots with me and some friends. I missed getting photos with several others. Next year, guys!
Results from this year’s race can be found online [here].

Thanks again, everyone! Hope you’ll join us next year.
