Signed up for the New Balance/Super Jock 'N Jill Winter Grand Prix Series this evening.
Six short, speedy races, the first is a Cross Country Race this coming Saturday, my first such race.
How do XC races work? Not sure.
Although most cross-country competitors also run distance events in track and field, the two are separate sports. The cross-country season is still the fall and events are run through open country, often over rather rude trails, not on roads or tracks (although major races often begin and end on a track inside a stadium).

Hmm. "Rude trails" eh? I quite like the sound of that.
No way in H am I even competitive over 3000 meters but this just might be the speed work I am after.
Oh yes, got a spiffy new t-shirt too. Can never have enough of those.
