This is Madelyn Patton

Her 45th birthday was Saturday, Sept. 20, 2008...the same day as the fifth-annual Duck & Run 5K in Athens. I had fully intended to tell everyone, during the post-race awards presentation, that it was Madelyn's birthday. We were even going to sing for her. Somehow, I forgot all about it, then remembered out-of-the-blue just a couple of days ago.
So, (Everybody Now!)
Happy Birthday, Madelyn!

Congrats on taking first place on your very first day in a new age group!

Thanks Mike!
We appreciate you!
