Huff 'N Puff 15K Results

The Huff 'N Puff on the Bluff 15K took place in Sheffield Saturday, March 14 with 124 finishers.
The Top 3 male finishers were:
Josh Whitehead, 30, of Madison, 52:10
Scott Strand, 41, of Hoover, 55:36
Owen Bradley, 29, Birmingham, 56:00
The Top 3 females were:
Lori Goldweber, 45, of Birmingham, 1:06:00
Christie Thigpen, 33, of Florence, 1:08:22
Sandy Lynch, 39,of Florence, 1:09:26

Mark Swanner, 40, of Athens took second place in his age group in 1:15:30. Last year, when the Huff'N Puff was held in summer after a snowfall postponed the late-spring race, Mark was within a mile of the finish line when he suffered a heat stroke and was unable to finish the race. (You should hear Mark tell the story...he's a bit of a natural comedian, that guy!)
Anyway, it's safe to say he was -- after that -- pleased with this year's performance. Especially considering he came in well under his goal time of 1:16:59!
Go, Mark!
Other Limestone finsihers include:
Barry Pugh, 41, of Elkmont, 1:15:50
Mark York, 41, of Athens, 1:19:06
