Running Track Verses Cross Country

Running track was never anything I wanted to try. Even now that I'm much older I don't understand why someone would want to run around an oval track. They are constantly running in a circle-never getting anywhere-ending up right where they started. Nope! This is something I am trying to change not pursue.

Now let's take a moment to discuss hurdling. Hurdling is the act of running and jumping over an obstacle. Of course, you need to know the pace on which you need to run and the proper time to jump, This sounds a little more inviting because who doesn't want to run and jump over an obstacle. According to Wikipedia: In hurdling events, barriers known as hurdles are set precisely at measured heights and distances.

Hurdling had me at running and jumping over obstacles, but in knowing most barriers are obstacles that prevent movement or access. This explains why when running in hurdling events we are still not only running around the same track, but we are also facing the same hurdles. With all of this being said hurdling is out too.

I've got it! when to Cross country running a race out in the open air over natural terrain. The grass beneath your feet or a dirt trail with hills and maybe even trees or limbs to jump over. I love nature so cross country sounds very inviting to me. Yes, this sounds like a race I want to run in. Out in the open learning when I can slow down or kick it into gear and push myself harder than I ever have before. Finding my pace, (following the path), staying the course, and enjoying all the scenery as I pass by. I will definitely soak it all in as I run the race with my Father leading the way.

I rolled down a hill once, while taking a detour on a walk that had a path. Because what actually happened was I was on the right path and wasn’t looking when I was invited to take a detour. Also goes with yesterdays wisdom! Wisdom requires you to pay attention to the path that your on. Really enjoyed this!
