Ryan Hall Talks FootLocker Cross Country Series, a video from the Shoe Addicts

Ryan Hall is one of the best runners ever produced in this country. A fine high school runner, Ryan won the California State Championships in the mile and came within two seconds of breaking four minutes for the mile in high school. 

 Ryan Hall went to Stanford for college and ran well in cross country and on the track. After college, Ryan ran a 13:16 for the 5,000 meters, but it was in 2006, when he broke the American record for 20k, held by Mark Curp for over two decades, that Ryan came into prominence. 

His run on the Boston Marathon course, where he ran the fastest marathon ever run, in all conditions by an American, of 2:04.55, to take fourth, in 2011, has kep him in the spotlight.

We ask Ryan Hall, the ASICS ambassador, what he would tell high school runners about the FootLocker Cross Country series, the place where America's best distance runners have raced for three plus decades!
