Glen Baldwin wins the Easter Lily 5K
The streets of Fayetteville were alive on Saturday morning, April 3rd, with runners of all ages. The 5K course started beside the courthouse and wound around Fayetteville, mixing in some challenging uphills, and ending with a gracious downhill finish. A total of 61 participants were there and they all seemed to be smiling; there's no doubt the sunshine and warm weather had everyone feeling good. From the very beginning Glen Baldwin(17:23)was out in front, and he never looked back. Don't think that there wasn't plenty of action right on his heels though, because Tim Howard(17:55) and Aaron Kaylor(19:01) were battling hard to the two mile mark, with a steady stream of racers right behind, but the veteran Howard was strong and slowly pulled away.

Wouldn't you like to have one of these?
It was Rebecca Falbo-Schooner(20:51) keeping a blistering pace to capture the womens win, and to finish a very impressive 9th overall. Right behind her, and finishing 2nd in the womens was Robin Tarpinian(21:41), and Kristina Reickover(22:46) was right there with a strong third place finish. After the race, there was plenty of drinks and fruit while everyone enjoyed the sunshine on the lawn of the Fayetteville courthouse. The trophies were handed out to the top three finishers in each category, and these were no ordinary trophies. These beauties were handmade by race organizer Larry Taylor and his father, and everyone that received one could be seen walking away admiring their newly won prize.
