Patrick and Bob put the "T" back in NETT

When NETT was founded more than 10 years ago, we the four founders were still active in track racing. So we included "track" in the club name (post-Banana, of course).

Fast forward a decade or so and very few of us step foot on the track. But two Mini Ponies recently not only took to the track, but did so at the national level.

Patrick and Bob both ran in the USATF National Masters Indoor Track and Field Championships. Bob busted out a 12:31 in the 3000.

Not only did Patrick win his heat in the mile in 5:41, he set a new NETT benchmark and became the first member ever to get drug tested (at least in an athletic setting, heh heh). And he ran an 11:16 in the 3000 meters to boot.

Congrats to both! Nothing like setting a good example.
