What Nike Cross Southwest and Foot Locker Midwest have in common--besides, of course, championship cross country--is that Colorado goes to both. So, I wrapped the two events together here for the Colorado audience (you're still welcome to look in if you're not from Colorado!). Some photos are of Colorado athletes; others are not. Photos don't discriminate in that fashion.
The toy cannon they use to start races at Foot Locker Midwest packs a bigger punch than you would think at first glance.
