This Weekend

This is a big weekend for the Nike Fleet Feet Racing Team from Huntsville all around the area starting with the flat and fast River City Run 10km in Decatur, Alabama.  This course has produced most of the personal records at 10km for people in north Alabama and if the temps can stay down (highs Saturday will be in the mid 80's by noon) this year should be no different.  Leading the team this weekend will be Eric Charette, Marty Clarke, Greg Reynolds, David O'Keefe, Shane O'Neill, David Rawlings and Lisa Rawlings. This race is directed by team member Eric Schotz and aided by Jon Elmore.

Elsewhere, new team member Erik Debolt will be taking on the GO! St. Louis Half Marathon on Sunday.  Last year this event drew over 10,000 runners and with Erik's speed he will be eying a top 25 finish.

As a side note, former team member and long time Huntsville resident (now living in Cincinnati) David Riddle will be in Madison, WI for the 100km national championships.  David will be aiming for a fast finish and if he is at or near the top the reward would be a spot on the national 100km team.  Here is David's preview write up from his blog.

Good luck to the entire team where ever your fleet feet take you!
