Real cross country

After NC State’s Julia Lucas referred to the (soggy) conditions at the NCAA Nationals course as “real cross country,” I was reminded of this article from World Cross, which I know I’ve linked before, but bears noting in this context—particularly given that another favorite in Lucas’s race, Texas Tech’s Sally Kipyego, represented Kenya as a junior at the 2001 World Cross in Ostende, one of the muddy courses mentioned by Downes. (How muddy? Kipyego’s on the far right in this photo.)
