Washington week continues on Flotrack--Jeremy Mineau...

Courtesy of media partner Flotrack, here's an interview with Washington senior Jeremy Mineau.

Mineau entered Washington in the fall of 2004 with a ton of promise. He made the US world junior cross country team in 2005, running on a squad that included 2008 Olympian Galen Rupp.

In 2006, he set the Washington school record in the 5000m indoors, running 13:54.03, and followed it up with the second fastest time in school history in the 10000m outdoors at 28:49.69.

However, injuries in the form of two stress fractures have derailed his progress over the last few years. Mineau is finally back to the form that made him one of the Pac-10's best distance runners, finishing tenth two weeks ago in Springfield, Oregon.

The graduate of Menlo Atherton HS in Menlo Park, California will have the opportunity at Saturday's NCAA West Regionals to run in front of friends and family making the short drive to the Stanford Golf Course in Palo Alto.
