Brock Rhodes
Past runners of the month
January:
 Josh Neilson
This month's chosen runner has been chosen for many reasons.  I first saw
Brock running road races when he was in the fourth grade and I immediately
began to look forward to when I would be able to coach him, and I finally had
the opportunity to this year.  Needless to say, he has quite a future ahead of
him in whatever he sets out to do.  Enough of this, on with the interview.
