Athlete of the Month - August

The month of August was outstanding for the Nike Fleet Feet Racing Team members. After reviewing race results and blog posts for the month of August, here are the top Nike Fleet Fleet Racing Team athletes of the month. Included are the events that earned each athlete 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 August is Donald Bowman. Donald proved to be amongst the fastest runners in the area as he won two competitive 5km races during the month. He started with a fast 17:07 on the difficult Brooke Hill 5km course, followed by a dominating win over some fast runners at Running of the Bulls 5km. At "Bulls" he posted a season best 16:57. Donald continues to prove that he is one of the best runners in town, even now as a master's athlete. These performances have earned him the distinction of the Athlete of the Month for August.
