Weekend Results

The Nike Fleet Feet Racing Team wins every race that they run, going 4 for 4 in area road races.  Taking overall victories this weekend were Eric Charette (16:47) and Kathy Youngren (20:15) at Care Center 5km, Brad Schroeder (17:15) and Lisa Rawlings (21:50) at PHP 5km, Eric Schotz (19:03) at Rib Fest 5km and Donald Bowman (16:57) at Duck and Run 5km.

At the Care Center 5K Run/Walk in New Hope, Alabama, Eric Charette set a season best 16:47 to capture the overall win, and broke the 17 minute mark for just the second time in his career and first time since November of 2008.  In a final tune up before next week's Spartathlon, Kathy Youngren ran 20:15 for first overall female.  Tim Vinson continues to get stronger and finished as first men's master.

In Scottsboro, Alabama, Brad Schroeder won the Carlos Serrano Memorial 4th Annual PHP 5km with a time of 17:15.  Last year Brad and team mate Rob Youngren were leading the way in this race and missed an unmarked turn at the end, thus never finishing the race so it is great to see Brad take care of unfinished business.  Dink Taylor was 2nd overall and first men's master finisher.  On the women's side, Lisa Rawlings continues to run well every week and takes the top female finisher.
