The HiWaay Sprint Triathlon (3-mile run/6-mile bike/600-meter swim) took place in Huntsville on Saturday with Athens' own Heather Robinson dominating her age group, with an overall finish time of 57:20. Wow! Robinson, 33, finished 1 minute, 34 seconds ahead of the second-place 30-34 female and a full three minutes and then some ahead of the third finisher in that division. Again, Wow!
Here's Heather, below, at right, approaching the finish line in the 2006 Duck & Run 5K in Athens.

And though she is not among the Limestone Countians I usually recognize here, I'm also going to shine the Wow!-Spotlight today on Madison's Madelyn Patton, 45, who finished in a whistlingly impressive 54:17, taking the first-place award in her age division.
Here's Madelyn, below, at right, goofing around with Glen King & Philip Stewart at Decatur's Frosty Freeze 5K in December 2007.
