It's time for our first National Performer of the Week presented by Firefly Recovery.

We're just six days into the new year, but national-best times have already begun dropping on the regular every week. 

This time out, we had a wide selection of athletes to choose from, whether it was the returning national champion Brianna Selby, who began her indoor campaign with a flourish, or Saratoga Spring's top distance runner, Emily Bush, who ran away from the field in the 3K at the Ocean Breeze Freedom Games. 

We will have five nominees a week.

Voting will end on Friday at 12:00 p.m. Each new poll will will provide a fresh dish of nominees. 

Winners of our indoor NPOTW program will receive Firefly Recovery gear and a Track Barn back pack. Email us at with your address. 

With that being said, have fun voting!
