2006 Rainbow Classic

Rainbow Classic 5 mile race in DePere, WI

There were about 100+ people in 5mi and more in 2mi.

I ran side by side with 2 milers until 1 mile mark. After the split, was in 7th and then passed 3 more to get into 4th. It was a good race, but really tough to hold onto this pace. It was overcast, but occasional sun made it really warm. I could see Mike Servais in the distance but I could never catch him. He caught up to the fast guy in front of him though. I did pass 2:58 Marathoner Mike, which felt great!

Finished 4th overall and 1st in M30-39 at 29:21. Got a trophy!!!!

2006 Bret Younger Memorial 10km

Bret Younger Race in Appleton.

This was a tough hilly course and very warm. Did well on splits in the first 3 miles, hitting 6, 12, 18 and then fell only slightly. 6:02 overall pace was same as Bellin, so felt good about that, but it was a long 10k.

Finished 21 of 278 and 2nd in M30-34. Very tough competition. Was at the back of the 2nd pack. Mike Servais was 1st GB person, I was 2 and then Brian Hendrickson was 3rd. Had to fight my head in this race....!
