After a night of rain, 106 finishers ran the Senior Cup 5K in Decatur this morning under an overcast sky. I'm sure everyone appreciated the refreshingly cool temps brought in by the rain.
The Senior Cup was timed by ShoalsTrac and results are posted at the ShoalsTrac Website.
Limestone finishers include:
Colby Sneed, 14, Athens, 28:01 (age-group 3rd)
Sharon Connealy, 46, Athens, 34:40 (age-group 3rd)
Troy Connealy, 46, Athens, 26:58 (age-group 3rd)
Phillip Dean, 54, Athens, 26:28
Bud Bowen, 58, Elkmont, 20:06 (age-group 1st)
Peter Saunders, 61, Toney, 31:03 (age-group 3rd)
And while Mr. Jim Howell does not reside in Limestone County, he is a personal friend and I always enjoy seeing his name among race results. Mr. Howell, 86, of Huntsville, ran a 38:08 and was the only finisher in the above-80 category.
The Senior Cup also includes a 1-mile fun run, which had 26 finishers.
