Anything with cross in the title seems...

to be hard (cross dressing included I would have thought).

Bashed out my first running cross country for a while. As always, I'm not as fast as I think I was. I imagine that I will run like a Gazelle on speed, the reality is a Gazelle after an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet.

From moor park xc run


Good fun though, once I'd engaged the diesel and realised that the speed I was running was the speed I was going to run... and nothing was going to change that.

What's nice about these events is the low-key nature of it all. Entry fee? Tiny. Equipment required? Total of about £50 if you get shoes on sale. Fitness required? Moderate. Welcoming atmosphere? Overwhelming :)
