OMAHA, NE. May 25, 2017 – Bob T. Bridge, (aka Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge) has a new way for everyone and anyone to become an official marathoner…sticker and all. Bob is 3,000 feet long, or in marathon terms a 0.9k. And yes, the decimal point is in the right place.
“This is one of the few marathons you can complete with a cup of coffee in one hand and a breakfast sandwich in the other,” said Bob.
Visit Omaha is behind Bob’s exercise efforts 100%. In fact, anyone who walks Bob’s 0.9k, takes a selfie with Bob and shows it to the folks at the Omaha Visitors Center at 1001 Farnam, will receive an official 0.9k marathon sticker. (Put it on your car to be really cool.) The first 100 also receive a free Bob T-shirt.
“I’ve been carrying a lot of weight for a long time, so I get it,” added Bob. “With this marathon, you don’t have to be IN shape, you just have to be A shape.”
New signage on each side of the bridge will help promote Bob’s new health care plan, “Take that Obama and Trump,” joked Bob.
