A Couple Good XC Links From The Daily
Former Husky runner Zachary Gussin has a couple more good reads on the cross country team. Here he has a notebook-style look back at UW's Pre-National run in Terre Haute including an update on All-American Mel Lawrence.
Also worth a read is a creative description of frontrunning sophomore Kendra Schaaf from last week. The defending Pac-10 Champ has never been entirely comfortable with self-promotion, so Gussin went to her teammates to learn about the real Kendra.
Here is an excerpt:
"Sophomore Kendra Schaaf is often mistaken as timid or shy. Because when you ask the people who know her best, her teammates and coaches, that's one of the only words omitted when they describe her. Granted the assurance of anonymity, the adjectives ranged from "cat-crazy" to "caffeinated," "graphic" to "goofy" and "random" to "ruthless," the last of which was repeated many times. Schaaf embodies all of these attributes and dozens more."
