Congratulations on qualifying for the 4A North Carolina State Cross Country Championships 2013. You showed great poise and determination. Your resolve to succeed and achieve showed brightly on this glorious morning. The memories from today will last a lifetime and I hope they bring you some satisfaction and a sense of pride. It has been a long road (17 years) to get to this point and today presented some great challenges. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Nik and the desire to compete and willingness to contribute although injured. Everyone ran very well and I'm glad we had some PR's. I'm also happy to see you aren't done yet and are eager to reach some more milestones - breaking 17, going top 10 in the State as a team, being All-State, and so on.

I am confident we can continue to improve. As fast as we ran today, there is even more in the tank. At the 1992 National Championships (which I read) I ran 25:31. The National Qualifier (Regional) was on the same course a week before. I ran 26:08 and a personal best that day. I had reservations I could run any faster when I prepared for the National meet and such doubts are natural. I'm not saying you guys are going to run almost 40 seconds faster, but you should believe in yourselves and believe what could be with unlimited vision. When you run with confidence, determination and great resolve you can achieve athletic greatness.

"Racing teaches us to challenge ourselves. It teaches us to push beyond where we thought we could go.
 It helps us to find out what we are made of. This is what we do. This is what it's all about."
