Weekend Results

The weather was the story this weekend as it seem to plague events across the Tennessee Valley. This included the cancellation of the Big 5km in Huntsville and a weather shortened Country Music Marathon for those not on 4:30 marathon pace or better.

The Nike Fleet Feet Racing Team from Huntsville was still very successful all weekend long despite the rainy and windy conditions.

In Nashville at the Country Music Marathon, Shane O'Neill ran a steady race, finishing 25th overall and 1st in his division with a 1:21:33. In the full marathon, Eric Patterson ran 3:07:28 and notched another Boston Qualifying time in 43rd overall place. Lori Jandreau ran 3:31:30 and finished as 38th female overall.
