And Now a Word From Our Sponsors, III

Dub's Burgers in Athens is owned and operated by Athens native Lanier Greenhaw and his family. An avid runner, Lanier's name can often be found in North Alabama race results and he always takes part in the Duck & Run. This year, however, he had an unpleasant encounter with an army of angry fire ants just a day or two before the race so, while he did turn out on race morning to cheer everyone else on, he was unable to run. He's OK, though, and was back at it last weekend in Elkmont, where he took third place in his age group by finishing the Lions Club Rails to Trails 10K in 47:33.
Lanier has generously served as a Duck & Run sponsor since the race's inception in 2004 -- first through Greenhaw Moving and now through Dub's Burgers.
Thanks Lanier! We're glad you defeated the ants and we appreciate your continued support!

This is Why We Do It

Most every runner has, at some point, had some variation of the following conversation.

Non-Runner: "So, how often do you run, anyway?"

Runner: "Well, I try to get out at least four or five days a week."

Non-Runner: "How far do you run?"

Runner: "Usually somewhere between four and seven miles."

Non-Runner: "Are you crazy?! I only run if something's chasing me!"

Well...at the risk of putting Eric in the spotlight far too many times lately...I just have to make sure everyone reads his Tuesday blog entry. It provides an outstanding answer (though perhaps one that only runners will "get") to the "Why?" question that lurks in that oft repeated "Are you crazy?!" comment.

Rails to Trails Results still to come

Got word from Whitney this morning that the finalized results from Saturday's Elkmont Lions Club Rails to Trails 10K should be pulled together later this evening. She'll send them in when they're ready and I'll post them then.
Tyrone Harris of Athens was the overall winner, two weeks after winning the Duck & Run 5K for the third straight year.
According to Mike Greene's blog account of the race, Tyrone ran a 34-something with George DeWitt coming in second in 35-something.
Eric Patterson also writes about the race on his blog.
Both Eric and Mike maintain their training blogs daily so be sure to check in with them frequently to keep up with their progress. Their training tenacity is inspirational, especially if you ever find yourself in slacker mode.
