Something people would be surprised to learn about me – I quit cross country after being pulled up to run on the high school team freshman year because my band director said I had to quit if I wanted to be drum major for marching band. I missed XC a lot over my sophomore and junior years and decided to run again senior year even though I “wasn’t allowed to” according to my band director. Everything worked out fine so I think it was ok.
