Also Saturday, the Dizzy Fifties 50K, 40-Mile & 50-Mile Trail Runs took place in Huntsville. Results are posted on the Huntsville Track Club website.
Limestone Countians in the race include:
Tony King, 43, Athens, who finished the 50K in 5:34:53.
There were no other Limestone finishers in Dizzy Fifties, unless, of course, they live in such annexed areas as Toney, Harvest or Madison. I really have no way of knowing whether those folks live in Limestone or not.

One such friend of North Alabama Runner is Tom Smith.

Way to go, Tom!
