Dear Peter or Brenda, the race results have to be added to the end of this story
Altamont 5K runs smoothly
By Jordan J. Michael
ALTAMONT The 14th annual Altamont 5K beat the bad weather on Saturday.
Courtney Tedeschi, 16, of Westerlo, was the first female finisher for the third year in a row with a time of 18:32. Tedeschi, a rising junior, is a top runner for Berne-Knox-Westerlo and has been for some time.
The cross-country season is about to start for Tedeschi, who has both personal and team oriented goals for the fall. She said it “feels pretty good,” followed by a laugh, when asked about owning Altamont’s annual race.
Tedeschi’s personal best for a 5K is 17:48, and she plans to shoot for times just over 17 minutes this season for the Bulldogs.
“It’s very possible to obtain those times,” Tedeschi said this week. “I’ve moved my miles up quite a bit. I try to stay positive when a race gets really hard and just believe in myself.”
Coming in first place for the entire event was Kevin Treadway, 23, of Guilderland, with a time of 16:14. Following Treadway in second was 26-year-old Thomas O’Grady, of Latham, finishing with 16:26. Third place went to Aaron Knobloch, 35, of Guilderland, with a time of 16:50.
Meghan Davey, 26, of Rotterdam, was the second female to cross the finish line, posting a time of 19:46. Finishing third for females was 14-year-old Nina Armstong, of Lake Placid, with a time of 20:43.
