One of my favorites subjects in school was history. I was a big history junky. Whether it was from the Middle Ages, to the 70's, and now today, I think it is the coolest thing ever. Sports history is probably my favorite if you cannot tell by this blog. For every Friday from here on out, I will be featuring a Whatcom County distance runner and what he or she accomplished during their time in high school. If you know of someone who had a great running career at any of the high schools in the county, feel free to message me!
