West Chester, PA
Coming at the end of an incredible 2006, Renee returned from her international racing trip to run a little closer to home. She capped off a simply superb year by running the hilly road race Brian’s Run. With deep prize money, this race always attracts a ton a top-flight talent. That includes Renee. She battled over the hills of West Chester and returned to the track at West Chester University with Kenyans and Ethiopians that train in Pennsylvania and New York. But this hard course, and its 400m circuit of the track for its finish, didn’t deter Renee, as she won a nice payday and scored a third place finish overall. Renee’s speed and confidence have surely paid dividends for her this year. We can only wonder what’s in store for 2007!
