Athlete of the Month - April

After scouring race results and blog posts for the month of April, here are the top Nike Fleet Fleet Racing Team athletes of the month.  Included are the events that earned them this distinction.  Athletes of the month are slightly different than top performances, as these runners had great showings at multiple events in the month.  The top athlete of each month will be honored at the year end Christmas Party.

The top performer of April is Tim Vinson.  His tune up overall win at the half marathon in Cullman, AL turned out to be the start of a great month as he later made his debut at the Boston Marathon, where we set a personal best with a time of 2:41:20.
