On a rainy morning outside of Fort Worth, Texas, Stuart White won the Azle Lake Run 10k in dominating fashion. He improved on his third place finish from 2008 by winning this year’s race by three minutes. Despite a steady rain and puddles on the road he finished the 10k course in 36:46 to match his time from the previous year. His performance is a sign of good things to come as Stuart prepares for the USCAA Track & Field National Championships in July.
Although she competed halfway across the country in Central Park, Melissa Ralph also raced in rainy conditions in the Healthy Kidney 10k. After a long bout with injuries she has put in a solid block of training and she’s ready to finally get back to the business of racing. Despite the conditions and running through the field after starting in a less then ideal corral, Melissa was able to run the second 5k 1:15 faster than the first.
