Here's an argument that cross-country runners are as tough as nail. Wayzata boys' cross-country Bill Miles filed this report via email a few minutes ago.
The weather caused the cancellation of the Chaska Invite and the postponement of the Classic Lake Conference Meet today. On the spur of the moment the Edina, Stillwater & Wayzata boys teams came together for an old school Cross Country Meet (circa 1968).
We ran 2 miles on our school grounds with results tallied with 3x5 cards and carbon paper used to get immediate results to the coaches. We had no computer chips, competitor numbers or modern technology (other than ballpoint pens) around and we still managed to get it done. A lot of the kids, parents & coaches thought it was a fun deal.
