Senior Cup 5K Results

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.

Country Music Marathon results

The Country Music Marathon & Half-Marathon took place in Nashville on Saturday, April 25.
Complete results are available here.
In the marathon there were 261 Alabama finishers; 1,174 in the half.
Because that includes a whole big bunch of North Alabama finishers to copy down and re-enter here (and because you all know as evidenced by my long-absence in making new posts, I don't have a lot of time to get this done) I'm only listing the Limestone County finishers here.
There were loads of North Alabama names I recognized, though, so be sure to visit the results and check out all the Huntsville-Madison-Decatur-Shoals folks who crossed the finish line!
