Brooks PR Invitational - 02/24/2013


It looks like WI will be represented on the Boys side with Brad Johnson in the 800 and Ryan Kromer in the Mile. Fields are loaded.

This is going to kick off a ‘Big Year’…


Peculiar that Carl Hirsch wasn’t invited…


He is on the sheet…


Ryan Kromer now in the 2 Mile.


He wasn’t earlier… :slight_smile:


I know these three read the boards so if your goals are higher than this don’t be offended. It’s not that I think you can’t run FASTER, because I definitely do, it’s just the Brooks PR meet is a rust buster as much as it is an elite meet. Hopefully each of you are focusing on June with your training.

  • Brad Johnson will 1:53.7-1:54.2
  • Carl Hirsch will run 4:15-6 for a full mile
  • Ryan Kromer will run 9:16-17 for a full two miles


So what would good times be for Johnson, Hirsch and Kromer? What’s a reasonable goal for place? Top half?

looks like Hirsch was having some fun yesterday…
Red hoodie, 12 seconds in, next to the slingshot thingy


9:15ish for Kromer i believe…


Couldn’t tell quite which yellow man crossing was Ryan, but it would seem to be 9:16 or 18ish. Well done Kromer yet again! Looking forward to this track season for sure.

edit: Good thing someone’s on top of things. Getting slower with age haha.

Kromer 13th at 9:17.34. Montoya the winner at 8:54.63.


That’s a good effort. It means Kromer ran about even splits.

9:17.34 = 9:14.11y = PR for Ryan


Agreed, especially given the fact that most of these kids started their indoor track season a month or two ago.


Rumors that Hirsch ran 4:15 in a time trial two weeks ago. I bet he will be ready for tonight!


Like who?
You dont need to make the guys above Kromer look not as good. He ran great. So did the other guys. Kromers been training a month or two ago as well.

We dont need excuses


Wow. This is why I rarely post here. Get attacked for complimenting someone. I don’t recall saying anything derogatory regarding any other competitor. Was merely agreeing with Zen saying that Kromer deserves kudos for his effort.


I read it differently. Lol im not attacking you. Dont worry
