Meet and Greet with Olympian Brian Sell

If you haven't had a chance to visit Up-n-Running in Ebensburg yet, here's a good excuse: Olympian Brian Sell will be there from 2:00-4:00 on Saturday (May 2) for a "meet and greet."

Additional details can be found here.

Brian is a friend to many EARCites, having done his high school running at Northern Bedford and completed his college career at Saint Francis University.

After a few years of running with the Hansons Distance Project in Detroit, he qualified for the 2008 Olympics in the marathon. The trials for the Beijing games were held in New York City in November of 2007. Brian was, to say the least, a long shot to make the squad. But a smart race plan and a remarkable work ethic resulted in a third place finish.

Some come on out and meet Brian Sell!

Oh, and make sure to ask him about the macaroni statue that the good folks at Brooks made in his honor...
