Cross country is both a team and individual sport. I was at the Nuttycombe Invitational two weeks ago, and it was a lot of fun. Watching the UW women and the Northern Arizona University men win the championship races was exciting. Both teams kept their top seven runners close and were able to pass people over the last third of the race.
Teams come together in workouts, both the tough ones and the easy ones. Today in your strideouts, consider the big races coming soon.
