About NATRA Blog
This page is meant for folks to post their thoughts on the Saturday group run. I (Neil) will post a blurb about who showed up and where it was held. From there, I hope that other runners will share their thoughts since we often have different experiences on the same run. Enjoy!

On May 4th, 2017, a nearly 39 year old column magically appeared on my Facebook page. Alas, my best man David McKee had uncovered this article I had stashed away in an old desk drawer. I do not recall stopping and meeting the fallen runner named Tretter, but the wild imaginations of my friends 39 years later provided me many laughs over the past few months! Ironically this incident took place just two months ahead of the very first Big Brothers Big Sisters of Flagstaff Half Marathon, now celebrating its 40th race on August 12th!
WEINTRAUB TO BE QUESTIONED IN COLD CASE! The year was 1978, Jimmy Carter was in the whitehouse, crime was rampent. The cold war was cold. Why did this 13 year old stop mid-race to inquire about "Treeter"? Was Treeter a Soviet spy, mafioso, fixing the race, was Treeter the reason Weintraub fled to the Southwest. Stay tuned as we dig deep into this cold case.
