Cross country is a teacher. It connects us with nature and ourselves while familiarizing us with discomfort. It acquaints us with the paradox of struggle and suffering blended with the joy of pursuit. As a new cross country season is set to take stage, high school and university coaches nationwide have begun preparations. On the precipice of the upcoming season, we connected with two coaches entrusted with ushering in the next generation of athletes. Our Cross Country Collection evokes the spirit of passing the torch between teacher and pupil.
