With all the discussion of Ritz's 10K, I find myself wondering more about Mark Nenow. I did a google search and found surprisingly little about him:
..good but not great in college (Kentucky),
..excelled after college by running lots of miles on a hilly course, and almost no intervals.
I also have some vague recollection that he was a soccer player in high school who did not start running until his senior year... in Minnesota? Is this correct?
Can someone fill in more history about Mark Nenow?
