Los Altos, California

It took some tricky scheduling, but we were able to meet with our friends Brian and Debbie and their daughter Erin for breakfast this morning. As per usual, our “breakfast” meeting stretched out to about six hours, but that qualifies as a Very Good Thing™ when you’ve got friends so intelligent and interesting.

One of the discussions we had was on cross country running. Brian is a long-time cross country coach, and his numerous championships speak for themselves. I always think best practices, regardless of discipline, are informative because you never can tell when an idea in one field will be cross-applied to spark a revolution in another. I know virtually nothing about cross country, but you can bet I’ll be checking out the resources he gave me on the subject.
