May 20th, Denver, Colorado. Mizuno Racing Team Member, Patrick Rizzo, changed his plans to race a half marathon in Chicago in favor of staying home and racing the Colfax Half Marathon that offered a $1,000 for breaking the course record. The old course record was 1:08.59 set in 2007 by Benson Cheruiyot. Patrick, who took it easy the last half of the race to preserve himself for next weeks Bolder Boulder, ran 1:08.08, a very fast time at an altitude of 6000 feet.
