Ritz takes it to Mottram

In a bit of an upset, Dathan 'Ritz' Ritzenhein handily beat Australian superstar Craig Mottram, who is considered the best non-African distance runner in the world, in NYC's Healthy Kidney 10K run. Ritz's time of 28:08 on the tough Central Park layout is a new course record, landing him a $25,000 bonus in addition to his $7,500 first place earnings. In a classy move, Ritz, who grew up in the Grand Rapids area of Michigan and holds all of my former state's high school distance records, donated $7,500 to the charity that sponsored the race. Another great sign for the resurrection of American distance running!
