Great Article from Runningtimes.com for athletes and parents on ABCs of Cross Country

Excerpt from the article.....

Cross country is where many runners begin in the sport. Plunging into competitive racing often creates numerous questions for runners and their parents. We asked a panel of top high school coaches what questions they get most, and what advice they would give. Their answers all included questions about shoes, nutrition and injuries, so we called in some experts for advice in these areas, then added a few comments by top coaches on other essential topics. Here's to a great season. click on link below for article.
