n l o c n i Run L Run with the big dogs or find your stride... It’s early morning and the sun is starting to kiss the sky. The tops of the trees are glowing and while the trail is peaceful, I am not alone. As the day wears on, the trail will beckon many more runners to log their daily miles. We are runners and we consider Lincoln both home and an amazing running city. There is so much to love about Lincoln. Every time I travel, I can’t help but compare my city to far away destinations. Every time I come to the same conclusion; I am so happy to call Lincoln home. Our city has an amazing network of trails, a vibrant running community, and an offering of supremely well-organized running events that rival those of larger cities. Amazing Trail Network Our trail network offers an amazing diversity. Runners have access to crushed limestone trails surrounded by trees and paved multi-use trails. Feel the call of wide open spaces? Run one of our crushed limestone paths that lead out of the city and into the country landscape. The Great Plains Trail Network works diligently to advocate and support our trail network. Lincoln Parks and Recreation maintains the trails so that even in the dead of winter, Lincolnites have access to their favorite trail. With over 131 miles of amazing trails, you can explore what this city has to offer. The trails are what set this city apart. It is on the trail where PRs are achieved and friends are made. The trails connect not only places but people. Vibrant Running Community The running community here is made of the most amazing group of people. Our runners are a close-knit group with amazing leaders. The Lincoln Track Club, Pink Gorilla Events, and other local groups support and organize local running events. The Lincoln Running Company and Red Dirt Running Company, both in Lincoln, are run by amazing women who strive to reach out to all abilities of runners and are extremely
52 | www.Lincoln.org
passionate about developing the sport within our local community. There are group runs and group training programs for all ages and abilities. Runners can find a group for beginning 5K to marathon training. Come to Lincoln, and you will find a caring, genuine group who love running and love people. Must-Do Races in Lincoln There is no shortage of well-organized and awesome events in Lincoln. Starting in the early winter/spring, runners will hit the trails to train for the Lincoln Marathon, which had 12,500 registrants for last year’s sold out event. This classic race is organized and spectator friendly. Runners are cheered on throughout the course by Lincoln residents whose love of marathon weekend is demonstrated by their on-course support. Boosted by on-course entertainment and a finish in the infamous Memorial Stadium, it’s no wonder this must-do event sells out. Come fall, runners are training for the Market to Market Relay. This unique event is the nation’s largest day-long running relay. Teams of 6 to 8 take to the course with their costumes and decked out vehicles for a day to remember. The race starts in Omaha at Aksarben Village with a pre-race celebration. Runners take off from there and embark on a 76-mile journey that will take them through Omaha, out onto Nebraska’s scenic country roads, down running trails, and finally into Lincoln where they finish in the Haymarket entertainment district. After a tiring day, runners get to party the night away and celebrate their finish with food and beer. This event is organized, unique, and a must-do for every runner. The Good Life Halfsy is a fall point to point half marathon which runs across the city of Lincoln. The event celebrates local Nebraska culture and icons. Over 6,000 lucky participants will get to run their halfsy off at this year’s event, which takes place in early November and sells out quickly. The boisterous cheer stations, 20 entertainment acts, and unique spirit of fun make this race a must-do. The Halfsy illustrates why we call Nebraska “The Good Life.” So find your way to Lincoln next fall and get ready for the experience of a lifetime, after all, a Halfsy is a lot more fun than a Wholesy. Pack your bags and don’t forget your running shoes. Come run, play and explore Lincoln with one caution: once you find your way here, you may not want to leave. - Alexandra Cohoon Pink Gorilla Events

And no matter what you’re craving, what time you’re eating or how big your group is, there is a local Lincoln gem waiting to arouse your taste buds. Here are a few of the must tries: American Yia Yia’s Pizza – Pizza inspired by global toppings is served alongside ice-cold beer (over 375 different bottled beers). Each slice of pizza pie is made fresh and served with a hunk of freshly baked bread. Be sure to ask for a side of red or green pesto, you won’t be sorry. Honest Abe’s Burgers and Freedom – “The Last Burger You Will Ever Want.” Abe’s features a rotating menu of burger masterpieces from the Ground UP Restaurants group and they know a thing or two about how to make a burger taste like a million bucks. Add on an order of Freedom Fries and you will never feel more patriotic. Asian Banhwich Café – If you only try one restaurant while visiting Lincoln, Banhwich is the place. This Vietnamese sandwich shop is serving up traditional Banh Mi sandwiches with big flavor, fast service and killer prices. Add an egg to any of the sandwiches and you have the perfect breakfast sandwich. Amu Manu Ramen Bar – The

Ramen craze is hitting the coasts and it’s making a big splash in Lincoln too. Amu Manu is redefining a college staple with fresh, made in-house hearty ingredients that are sure to warm the soul. Sweets The Doughnut Hole – The perfect morning kick-starter. Fresh, fried and delicious, the Doughnut Hole creates classic-flavored doughnuts and pushes the envelope with unique flavors like PB&J, maple bacon long johns and chocolate doughnuts filled with peanut butter and Rice Krispy topped treats. Ivanna Cone – This eccentric handmade (yes, handmade) ice cream shop is family-owned and operated and features classic and unique flavors served by the scoop all year round. It’s a must try Lincoln staple. Be sure to bring cash or check (it’s all they take). Wash it Down The Other Room – This prohibition style speakeasy is small, quaint and serves killer craft cocktails. Be on the lookout for the green light (that’s how you know they’re open) and bring paper currency (it’s cash only). Zipline Brewing – A craft beer brewery making a range of local craft beers available at many area restaurants and in their taproom. Zipline steps up their hospitality with weekly group tours of their brewing process and they host a number of beer-centered events. Cheers!

Lincoln Like A Local... Passion and creativity runs deep within the community of Lincoln, Nebraska. Whether it’s a small business run out of the basement of a home or a successful boutique downtown, there isn’t a shortage of unique places to shop. Though there is a lot of individuality in this town, there is a common denominator that brings the people of Lincoln together—their love and desire to support the local artisans and business owners of their town. The people of Lincoln believe in being intentional about the way they spend their money and the options are limitless. The greatest thing about local Lincoln businesses is that there is something for everyone; from college kids on a budget to white collared adults and everything in between. Whether you’re looking for a unique card to send to a loved one or the perfect outfit for a night on the town, you’re sure to find it here. Of the many successful and fast-growing boutiques in town, Stella Collective (a collaboration of Stella Clothing, Loft & Craft, and Hunter Gatherer) located downtown has been a favorite amongst the trendy Lincolnites for years, offering an array of stylish pieces for your closet and your home. The owners behind Stella Collective are in tune with what the modern day woman wants and they provide it flawlessly. Across the street at Tsuru or down in the Haymarket at Forever Faithful boutique, the Lincoln fashionista can also find affordable and stylish pieces to add to her wardrobe.

For those who love a vintage flair, Home and Closet is the place to go. With weekly updated inventory of vintage clothing and furniture, this store has quickly become a local favorite. The perfect mid-century furniture resides here and makes its way into many local homes. After opening its doors in the fall of 2014, Paper Kite has become the most charming boutique in town. Located in the ever-growing College View, this boutique embodies everything lovely and sweet. There is truly something for everyone whether it’s a locally made cutting board in the shape of Nebraska or the softest baby blanket for a new bundle of joy. Not only will you hear friendly chatter between the customer and the owner (as if you were watching a scene from You’ve Got Mail), you’ll see many locally made pieces from artisans who don’t have a storefront. Paper Kite is a huge supporter of locally made goods and they continue to feed into the creative community. Lincoln is a place where the small shop has a voice; it’s a place where the consumer spends with intentionality and knows the face behind the business. The small business community continues to grow and make Lincoln a desired place to shop. Jordan Faeh Local Blogger (@Lincoln_Style on Instagram)
