This Weekend's Results

Nike Fleet Feet Racing Huntsville dominated the Huntsville Track Club 10 mile race in Mooresville, Alabama this weekend. The team took 8 of the top 10 positions including the top overall male and female and top masters make and female.

In what can only be described as an amazing finish, David Riddle edged out Josh Whitehead with a surge in the final 50 meters to win by 1 second with a time of 54:07. David noted that they started conservatively in the early miles, running in the mid 5:40's but continued to work the pace down until they were in the low 5's toward the end. Josh made a surge at mile 7, which David covered, but fellow team mate Chris Platt fell back. Josh surged again with two blocks to go for the finish, but it was just a little too early and David was able to cover and pass near the end. David's final mile was 4:48. Chris would finish in 3rd in 55:09.

New team member Tim Vinson bettered his 10 mile personal record by several seconds and in the process also set a state age record (46 years old) with a time of 58:48 and finish in 5th place overall. This was a record by one full minute.

On the women's side, new team member Heather Day was top female, running 1:10:40. The 2nd place female was also from the racing team as Lori Jandreau ran 1:11:21. Whitney Hollingsworth was top female master finisher at 1:15:10.

Many other members of the racing team were at the race in a volunteer capacity, including Eric Fritz, Carl Smith and Linda Scavarda.
