Do any of you have recommendations on resources for my son on training and nutrition for his cross country season.

I highly recommend Nancy Clarks Sports Nutrition book. I bought it on Overstock. It covers the basics on nutrition. However, I find it relies on more processed foods than I like. Not a dietician but Mark Bittman, cookbook author, has a good book called Food Matters that is about whole foods and has recipes for it. I like his approach to eating. If you pick up the latest Runners World (I wouldn't be surprised if your husband has it), he's in it with some good recipes. Both Nancy Clark and Mark Bittman have their own website. Mark Bittman isn't a fitness professional but a cook, recipe writer who runs.
