What Cross-Country Teaches You...

Of all the sports I competed on through the years - cross-country, track, baseball and basketball (there was one soccer camp which I've pretty much erased from my memory) - none holds a more special place in my heart than cross-country.

But in some sports -- and cross-country is a prime example -- winning often has nothing to do with why people compete.

I see a lot of similarities between cross-country and swimming and am glad my kids are on the swim team (though I'm secretly hoping they might be crazy enough to try cross-county when they're old enough).
