Ready for some woman-versus-nature cross country

“The freedom of cross-country is so primitive. It’s woman versus nature”  -Lynn Jennings, 3x World XC champion


I’m hoping to tap into the spirit of that quote tomorrow. I’ve signed up for another race on one of the local high school courses and it promises to be a stingingly chilly battle over hilly, grassy, oxygen-deprived terrain. There may even be snow!

I know the times won’t matter coming off this course, which is honestly a bit of a relief after last week’s race. I’m ready to just get out there with my Oiselle Volee teammate to race our (freezing) legs off over the nastiest, but most beautiful terrain the high rockies have to offer.
