There's been a lot of news coverage recently about the mosquito born disease, the West Nile Virus. For Concordia(Moorhead) Cross Country coach Garrick Larson the illness is more than a news story. As chronicled in a WDAY television report Larson is one of a growing number of confirmed cases of the disease in Minnesota.
Larson apparently contracted West Nile in July when he first began to feel "flu-like" symptoms. The disease escalated and Larson soon discovered it was not merely a summer cold. It's not his first bout with exotic illnesses, however, as last summer he suffered from Lyme disease. You can read about his experience and watch the interview HERE.
