The morning we woke up to run to Omaha I didn’t think too much of it. Omaha what the heck is in Omaha… it sounds like it should be a town in Alaska. Unfortunately the thunderstorms stopped us from running so we had to shuttle all the way to the host. Since we barely got any miles in for the day some of the van wanted to finish and the other half wanted to go to a gym and do cross training. My group went to the UNO campus and begged them to use their facilities. After having a great sweaty workout we all went back to the church that was hosting us for the night. As we waited for the other half of team Baltimore and team new york we found out that the church had organized 28 families to take at least 2 runners for the two nights! Colleen Walsh and I were roommates (yayayay for W and V being close together in the alphabet!) As we waited for the mysterious Guenther family to pick us up we imagined what our weekend would be like and it did exceed our expectations. Katie and Joel came and picked us up from the church, and look us to their beautiful 1920’s home, and treated us as if we were their own two children. Katie and Joel have 3 children 2 girls and a boy who are all graduated from college, married, and one just had a baby 2 weeks ago! This was the first time in the trip that I got to sleep in a bed and I slept like a baby! In the morning Katie took us on a tour of the city, as well as warren buffets house… which is extremely modest for the amount of money he has and the security was pathetic if I wanted to I could have walked straight up to high back door and walked in like hey what’s up hello. Anyways they then took us to their lake house, which was about 50 minutes away, which was just as beautiful as their regular home. This was truly the first rest day we had that we actually got to rest and relax!
