Salt Lake Tribune: Ogden Marathon Set for Saturday

Remember folks.. efficient hydration is important even for those who aren't running a marathon!

Big doin's in and east of Ogden City this morning, as the increasingly relevant 11th annual Ogden Marathon event kicks off this morning at the landmark Red Cliff Ranch Outfitters & Cafe starting line location at 7:00 a.m.. For our WCF readers' enlightenment here are a coupla articles on the subject from the Northern Utah press:
Who knows? Maybe those WCF readers who aren't actually running in this race might want to get down to the finish line @ Union Station around 10:30 a.m., to buy the first (or later) finishers a cold beer.

And remember folks... efficient hydration is important even for those of you who aren't running a marathon!

Just another helpful health tip from yer ole pal, Rudi.

Update 5/22/11 10:41 a.m.: The Standard follows up Friday's writeup with these two post-race stories and a slideshow:

Off topic:  The SE has up on line this morning a kind of photo essay on the historic Berthana building downtown [and purported lynchpin of the planned expansion of the Convention Center].  Link here..

Not linked to any currently running story that I can see, but many of the captions relate to on-going renovations turning at least part of the building into The Copper Club, identified as a sports bar.  [e.g. one caption: "Lighthouse Lounge which will be the new Copper Club sports bar inside the Berthana building in Ogden on Friday, May 20, 2011." The date refers to the date the picture was taken, it seems, not projected opening date of the Copper Club.]

Presumably a story about the reonvations/opening of the club is in prep now. Never having seen the inside of the Berthana or the old ball room, etc. I found the pix interesting.  FYI.
