The leaves have changed, and while I am walking in California and it is in the seventies, there was snow in Wisconsin, where my home is. Cross Country is about celebrating all that is fall, hills, changing of seasons, no breath left and then you have to kick with three hundred meters to go!

You are cross country racers.

And, never, ever, stop racing until you get past the finish line.
