Cross Country Books

Did I know that I would miss standing in a field every Saturday, tying shoes, handing out bandages, and holding people's hair back when they threw up?

Yes. I have reached the point in my life where I know that everything I love will end, probably sooner than I would like. 

I helped coach the middle school cross country team for nine years, so have avidly collected as many books on the subject as I could. If you know of any I missed, please comment!
