     Within the pages of Discovering High School Cross Country: A Comprehensive Guide for the High School Distance Runner, Coach Rankin shares more than 40 years of experience as an award winning coach and accomplished distance runner. 

     "Even during my earliest days as a young runner I had a keen sense of understanding as to how important Experience is in this sport of ours. I have always believed that perhaps in no other sport is Experience as valuable an asset as it is in that of Distance Running".                                                           

     Coach Rankin has won Coach of the Year awards in multiple states and holds a variety of high-level certifications from USATF and USTFCCCA. He ran nearly 50,000 miles and competed in hundreds of races during his own running career - races ranging in length from the mile up to the marathon.

     Discovering High School Cross Country offers today's young runners the opportunity to gain valuable insights into the world of competitive distance running through the eyes of one who has been a part of the sport for decades.
