Pics & Quote 11: Weather

Inspired by the weather conditions this past weekend and how strong the New Hampshire Cross Country Athletes and Community faced them, this quote by Bill Bowerman was recommended!  We chose the photos to show, other weather conditions could be even more challenging!

“There’s no such thing as bad weather, just weak people.” – Bill Bowerman

Editor’s Note: Due to the graciousness of Jeff Johnson, John Goegel and others, we are carrying over a series begun during the track season on our sister site, .  For those of you that don’t know, Jeff Johnson was employee #1 of Nike.  He actually is the one responsible for naming the company.  Fortunately for us, he was also a world class photographer of our great sports in the 1960s and 1970s during which he captured thousands of sports photographs.  We are honored and thankful for their choice to use our sites as their medium for sharing their passion.  We hope our presentations can do them justice!
