P3 A Lead Pack of Seven Runners Climbs Uphill at 2.5 Miles
Just before the two mile mark (9:20), the course passes beneath Junipero-Serra Boulevard and heads onto the hillier southern-half of the Stanford links. Heading into a stiff 20 mph wind, seven runners pull 10m clear of the field; (L-R) Rob Cook, Joe LeMay, Eric Mack, Todd Williams, Mark Coogan and Keith Dowling. Reuben Reina assumes a 'textbook' drafting position in LeMay's wake. The pace slows considerably into the wind and Williams shares a few words with his mates.
