Weekend Results

This was a great weekend for the Nike Fleet Feet Racing Team from Huntsville once again, staking up more impressive finishes at distances of 5km to 50 miles! Leading the charge was David Riddle, running his first ever 50 mile race at JFK50. David notched an impressive 5:53:09 and a second place finish. David's time proved that he is among the elites in this country at ultra running as is time was the 8th fastest time in 48 years of JFK. Dink Taylor ran 7:07:52 for 31st overall and DeWayne Satterfield ran 7:17:44 for 38th overall. There were 1014 FINISHERS, making it the largest ultra in the US. Official Results

Earlier in the day on Saturday, Blake Thompson and Eric Fritz also competed in the Krispy Kreme Challenge, which consists of a 2 mile run, a dozen donuts, and a 2 mile run back without puking. Not only did Blake win, but he defeated last year's champion, David Rawlings. Before the start of the race, Blake and Eric also completed a loop at Dizzy, then ran the Donut Run, before returning to Dizzy where they finished the 50km in under the time limit. This concoction was coined the "Dizzy Donut" by Rob Youngren in 2009. Also competing in the Donut Run were James Falcon, Brad Schroeder and Joey Butler, who vowed the words, "Never again."
On Sunday, the annual Jingle Bell Run, Kevin Betts and Candace Jacobs took overall honors in the 5km. After training his No Boundaries 5km group for this even, Josh Kennedy ran a 20:52 (10th OA and 2nd in his age group). Kathy Youngren, Katie Maehlmann and Lisa Rawlings also ran very well, placing in their age group on a very warm and windy day.
