It’s time to run.

Yep, that’s right. It’s cross season and all the little cycling boys and girls are getting ready to make mud pies and sprint up little hills while bicycle-toting.

Besides the fact that I L-O-V-E the rain (you can throw punches at me next time you see me for saying that, but it’s true), I also love to run. Which is probably why I love cyclocross so very, very much.

I love running (and cross) so much that I convinced my editor at the O to let me write my last column about tennis shoes instead of pedaling. Sweet! A cycling column about running.

  2. cross stressor

    Thank you for this affirmation. I went from running marathons to competing in triathlons to becoming obsessed with cyclocross. I too have convinced myself that I can make up for my mangled bike handling skills and a three-minute deficit with an affinity for a quick run up or silky smooth stride over a six pack. Pray for rain and a muddy equalizing cross course!

  3. What can I say another inspiring script, I`am ready this year and I too have been running way more than ever!
