Another year, another battle with the legwork at tax time! All the returns are in, now, and one deduction is clear: We've got some fast young legs in the area. Cave City's Kendall Townsley continued his winning ways at the 1040 Tax Run, with Southside's Chris Lyons giving chase. They will likely see more of each other in 4A high school track championships in the next few weeks and in cross country in the fall. It was a family sort of day, with lots of siblings, parents and children taking home matching bling: Nikkels, Whitesides, Pattersons, Grants, Cannadys, and Reelys among them. We also welcomed back Kristen Treadway, not long out of the maternity ward and already gobbling up the miles and adding the women's title to her collection. And our whole running family sends thoughts of peace and loving memory to Ken McSpadden. Thanks to all who helped us stumble to pull off his magic for a day. We have the Challenge Series standings updated.
