https___www.runnerspace.com_finishonempty2019.jpgThe NXN has been canceled in 2020.

This is a huge blow to many high school XC teams and XC afficianados.

This means no XC season?

I loved my all night flights to PDX, the night before NXN (I had 3 events that week each year).

The event was always a blast and the chance to see XC geeks and the top high school athletes in XC on a good course.

I'm going on a walk....

Bill Roe was a huge supporter of the sport, and a wonderful, colorful friend. Bill's affection of the sport, ability to dig through the bull shit and bureaucratic detritus that challenges our sport.

Bill Roe was a friend to many. I considered him a friend and a supporter of the cause.

I found this piece posted by Peter Thompson and Mike Fanelli. We hope that you enjoy it. It was an amazing day, and Bill Roe was all over it.

Katelyn Tuohy made history last week. She is now the most winning Gatorade Player of the Year, having won 3 cross country POYs and one in track & field, plus 2018 Gatorade Athlete of Yearr. Katelyn continues to impress and she has signed a letter of intent with North Carolina State.

We at @runblogrun give Katelyn Tuohy a hearty congratulations.

What lesson can we learn from Katelyn Tuohy?

Katelyn Tuohy has a remarkable drive and desire. She has a supportive coach, team and family. All though intangibles add to the ability of an athlete to succeed. Gatorade sees her as a role model, someone to learn from and admire.

The high school career of Katelyn Tuohy was well managed. Katelyn did not over race. She focused on her training and used racing to help her build her level of racing fitness.

We wish her continued success and enjoyment of her chosen sports.

This is the first track workout of the season, it will be brisk, but the pace should not be painful. Do the workout in flats and keep the jog easy.
