05/22/10 Chattanooga, TN—Saturday’s Market Street Mile wasn’t graced with the best weather of the spring, but several state records were eclipsed in the event, which was broken up into six individual races—three per gender: ages 18-39, Masters (40+), and Under 18.

The morning of races began when Alyssia Lindsay, a Bryan College athlete, won the women’s 18-39 race in 5 minutes, 38 seconds.

In the men’s 18-39 race, Bryan College’s Colby Smith matched his female counterpart and set a personal best of 4 minutes, 33 seconds as he led his teammate, Jake Bradley (who finished in 4 minutes, 36 seconds) across the tape.  Team Fast Break’s Jason McKinney finished in third place in 4 minutes, 47 seconds.

The men’s Master’s race saw two age group state records fall.  The 48 year old Joe Johnson and 47 year old Tim Ensign, both members of Team Front Runner, battled the entire race as each tried to best the state record for their respective age groups.  Johnson broke the tape first in 4 minutes, 50 seconds (also good for the fourth fastest time of the day) as he edged Ensign by two seconds and bettered the previous 48-year-old state record by eight seconds.  Ensign’s finishing time was the fifth fastest of the day and nine seconds faster than the previous 47-year-old state record.

The women’s Master’s race also saw an age group record fall; Jane Webb finished in 9 minutes, 7 seconds—1 minute, 25 seconds faster than the previous 57-year-old women’s state record.

The second place female was 13 year old Sydney Gautier, who crossed the finish line in 6 minutes even, and the third place female was 38 year old Rebecca Shearer, who finished in 6 minutes, 17 seconds.
