|Crossing the finish line|
One of the things I admire most about cross country, and those who run, is the discipline required to become good. There are no short cuts to becoming a great runner. It often involves running outside in the cold, heat, wind, rain or snow. Running just a bit harder than is comfortable is also essential much of the time. While it helps to have the right body type, even that can be dramatically enhanced with steady training.

Special kudos to Minneapolis Washburn High School cross country team, that ran spectacularly!
