The USA Cross Country champs were held in San Diego, California last Saturday and the womens team, lead by Shalane Flanagan, Molly Huddle and Lisa Koll, may be its best team ever! Brent Vaughn, who suprised many with his victory, lead some of our top male runners onto a tough senior men’s cross country team, including Ed Moran and Matt Tegenkamp!
Congrats on all involved in this superb event. Thanks to PhotoRun.net for great photos, thanks to the competitors for great races! As always, thanks to Chuck Bartlett for his kind help on these galleries!
