Good morning runners! Or should I say, SWIMMERS, after the weather we've been having!


***from Thomas Griffin

We had a great Thanksgiving morning Plucked Turkey 10K. There were 206 registered with 191 finishing. This is more than double what we had last year. Runners came from California, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and a bunch from Florida as well as across the state of Alabama. Jay Lloyd finished first with a time of 37:33 and Megan Williams was first among women with a time of 41:16. The winners took home Turkey Breasts and the 2nd and 3rd place finishers took home pies (Adam Swann, John Talley, Haley Long and Suzanne McGuire). Needless to say, all the runners earned their calories today.

Thanks to all who participated and especially to the volunteers, without whom, our races could not be run.

Ran the Ruben Studdard 1/2 marathon in B'ham this past sunday. I am running Calif. International marathon in 2 weeks, so this was a training run/race opportunity.  Fun race, and a pretty good course taking us thru parts of Bham I haven't seen in years.  

Finished in 1:40. new PR and was 28th overall out of 551 total finishers. 24th out of 221 men.  and was 3rd in the 40-44 age group.
