With track starting around the corner and the successful cross country team’s season coming to an end, I have noticed how underrated long distance runners are.

They are always running, mile after mile, to prepare for their next race. They train long hours, running around campus before the sun rises every day, only to go unnoticed on campus – nobody talks about them. There’s no student section; there’s very little support.

It is a necessity in distance runners like Kate and Kylie Miller, to keep themselves fit so that they don’t run out of gas too early in the race, but cross country may not be the most fan-friendly sport. We need to find a way to support these runners.

Long distance runners must teach themselves to stay paced throughout the miles so they can pass more people in the end. They are always running to stay fit for the next season. But it’s all worth it in the long run.
