It’s Labor Day weekend. My freshman year at De Smet (Creve Couer, Mo) was in 1972. I had just begun cross country. Father Passereli was our coach and he had suggested getting in a few miles over the weekend. We had gone to Johnson Shut ins, a series of natural pools in Missouri. I got my runs in, and also enjoyed fishing on the creeks for small mouth bass. Enjoy the weekend, and get your runs in. Those things do not change.
