Quote Of The Day
“Cross-country (racing) comes from a background of running through plowed fields, going down dirt trails and maybe even hopping over a couple of fences. Somehow we’ve gotten away from that. It’s become more of a grass track meet.”
– Max King, the race director (as well as competitor and legendary tough guy) for Saturday’s 2013 USATF National Club Cross-Country Championships aka “Club Nats,” talking about cross-country course design philosophy. Trust us, Club Nats won’t be a track meet on grass with King in charge.
