It was a little old school. We wanted to have the mass start so that some of the kids who are stronger at cross-country wouldn't have to start at the back of the pack. We figured out the places after it was all over.

When you get out there on the field, there's really no time to think about stuff like that. But you could definitely feel his presence.
