That Van Halen Kid?
Was reading another post when I became curious; who are some current collegiate athletes (in cross country as well as track and field) who are the children of former professional runners?
This will get you started
The Aragon girls
Centro Jr and Lauren (ret?)
John (Johnny Gregorek)
Shalane Flanagan (okay she's not in college but her parents were elite runnners back in the day)
Shayne is his wife's name. Not Shalane.

Addison DeHaven - dad Rod was pro marathoner and rep'd US at Olympics in 2000.
Cruz Culpepper seems to be heading toward greatness as he enters high school. Tennis and running for this kid, with a greater focus on tennis. But a 4:37 1500m at 13 years old last summer shows some real talent.
Parents Alan and Shalane both US distance Olympians.

Never ceases to amaze me how difficult it is for the LRC crowd to answer a simple question. Seeing responses about parents who weren't pros and kids who aren't in college yet (or no longer in college) makes me wonder why people can't stay on point.
