Quote of the Day
If you love cross country you've got to get out there and see this, because to me it's the most competitive cross country meet. It's the most competitive distance run that exists in distance running. People might say well the Olympic Games; split up with people between the 5,000 meters, 10,000 meters, some steeplechasers, even some marathoners. In cross country they're all in one race, in a 12km on the men's side, 8km on the women's side. Certainly that brings its own special thing to this race. I was very upset when they went to every other year. The event is amazing. [addressing the World Cross Country Championships]-Keith Hanson
