Idaho X-Country Star Rebounds

After her health took a sharp turn for the worse last year, Idaho cross country star Emily Paradis has had to live by two simple words - patience and perseverance. "I really struggled with it a lot. It wasn't just a physical barrier, it was mental, too," Paradis said.Entering her sophomore year, the former Moscow Bear was one of the promising young runners who had helped Idaho win the 2010 Western Athletic Conference cross country championship. She didn't disappoint in her follow-up campaign, as her strong performance helped the team win the WAC championship once again. But before she could run indoor or outdoor track, she started feeling ill. "I started feeling light-headed when I was running. I would just feel really fatigued," Paradis said. "I wasn't myself"/Ben Handel, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here. (Daily News photo: Geoff Crimmins)
