Tim Ritchie has been named the athlete of the month for October by the USATF-NE.
It shouldnâ€™t come as much of a surprise after the way he ran at the Twin Cities Marathon. Â Per the USATF-NE website:
Tim Ritchie of the Boston Athletic Association and Brighton MA is the USATF - New England Athlete of the Month for October 2013. On October 6 at the USA Marathon Championships held at the Twin Cities Marathon in Minneapolis, Tim finished 6th in 2:14:50. This is the fastest marathon by a New Englander in more than 20 years. Ritchie, a 2009 graduate of Boston College and currently an assistant track and cross country at his alma mater, improved his previous personal best at the distance by almost 7 minutes. He was also USATF-NE athlete of the month in November 2011.
