April 30th, 2016

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A Hendersonville teacher has made history once again, after Scott Wietecha won the St. Jude Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon Nashville for an unprecedented fourth year in a row.

The 34-year-old crossed the finish line at 2:25:42, an amazing 9:01 before second place finisher, Brian Shelton, of Cookeville.

Shelton and Wietecha are friends, and according to Wietecha, he didn’t find out Shelton was running the marathon until Friday night.

“[Shelton] told me he was going all out, 100 percent,” said Wietecha. “Me? My preparation was like 85 percent. He was trying to be this sneaky little hobbit, stealing the dragon’s gold. All he did was wake up the dragon.”
