Pic & Quote #11: Championship Cross Country Racing!

“Championship cross country involves the spirit and dynamic of team which elevates performance beyond level of individuals pursuing individual goals.  Championship cross country racing involves running for each other more than just for yourselves.  Championship cross country racing is when you bring the magic!”

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, newhampshiretrackandfield.com .  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!
