Hank Burnley
Hank, there is doubt that all that hard work and dedication this year in your training has paid off.  Keep on running!

     
8th - 79 points
3-way tie
Donna Akers
Donna, you are just like a fine watch, you just keep running, running and running.
     
8th - 79 points Byron Guy Bryon, Santa hears that not even a dog will stop you in a race. I call that determination and real dedication.
     
8th - 79 points Paul Pennington Oh my, Santa watches you.  I know your secret as to why you run and I won’t tell others you run so you can out run the dogs and clowns.  Ooops guess I just told it.

     
7th - 83 points Randy Lester Randy, you really worry Santa.  You are running so fast that Santa can’t pick you up on his radar.  I am not sure if you are on the naughty or nice list. Hmm

     
6th - 88 points Tom Kaylor It is inspiring to see the love of running is being carried on through your daughters, Hannah and Megan.  Good to see family members encourage each other.

     
5th - 92 points Missy Burleson Oh my Missy, you have been such a busy girl this year.  I have lost count of how many days straight you have ran.  No rain, sleet or snow stops you. Not only a runner but a baker, can’t wait to eat my cookies on Christmas Eve.   

     
4th - 96 points Ireland O'Sullivan Ireland, I am so proud of your determination in running.  Not even strep throat stopped you in the Coalfield Conference Cross Country Meet.  You are amazing.

     
3rd - 108 points Kristy French Now here is super woman. She does it all – takes care of a family, a farm, goes to college and runs even with a foot injury. Way to go Kristy!

     
2nd - 109 points Erin O'Sullivan Another O’Sullivan…Erin, you are carrying out the family tradition of running. Proud of you with all your winnings this year. The legacy that your Pop’s started is being carried on.

     
1st - 110 points Nick Whited For the 3rd consecutive year you have been the top runner.  BUT I know you are really fast on the race circuit, but Banjo and Jett are faster when they are running to your easy chair.
