Every year the Dave Sanders Invitational cross country race descends upon Robert F. Clement Park in Littleton. And every year I try to do something a little different with the way I cover it. I have had a hard time recently becuase it seems that we (the papers) are covering a lot of cross country races and I feel like I am running a little thin on inspiration.
Time was also a problem. I had to cover the Mountain Bowl in Evergreen directly after this race so it was shoot, shoot, shoot and sort it out later. I chose to focus on the team spirit or school spirit instead of the individual runners themselves. Sometimes its all in the details.
