Pics & Quotes 13: XC Dreams

“Your dreams won’t come true by themselves.  You have to commit to them, work for them, sacrifice for them, then, on the day, produce for them. But you will discover, at the end of that day, regardless of the outcome, it will all have been worth it for all that you have realized and become along the way. ”

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!
