We pause to appreciate Virgin and all he accomplished. In HS - 8:57.4 for 2 miles as a 15-year old sophomore, an 8:40.9 national record as a senior, and 48 straight xc wins in a row with 47 being course records. An NCAA xc title, a 27:29 10,000 (#2 in the world in the Olympic year 1980 which the US boycotted), and a 2:10 marathon. Please spend three minutes and be inspired by watching his world xc victory below.
