Montevideo's TeBeest, Nelson win titles at Lutefisk run in Madison

(Tribune photo by Rand Middleton) Runners at the annual Stinker Day Lutefisk Run head north on 6th Avenue from the starting point in front of the Grand Theater Saturday in Madison. Heather Nelson, No. 132, was the female winner and second overall.

MADISON -- When the field set off from in front of the Grand Theater at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, the bank clock already was at 80 degrees with a humidity reading to match.

Still, the runners made their way through the residential streets of Madison to complete the Lutefisk 3-Mile Run in uncomfortable conditions in decent times as part of the town's 125th anniversary.

First to the finish on main street was Kurt TeBeest, who will be a seventh-grade at Montevideo. He also won the Dawson 5k in June.

Heather Nelson, 34, of Montevideo, was the first female to finish and second overall. The 1995 Lac qui Parle Valley graduate, from Milan, also won in Dawson. She said she started running because she was required to at the Air Force Academy and has made it a part of her lifestyle.
