    I had the wettest cross country ever.
    It was ridiculous, as we were walking the course and warming up it was just a light drizzle, good English weather perfect temperature etc, then 5 minutes before the race the heavens opened: it poured. I ended up doing it in my rugby boots because of how muddy it was and i was still slipping over everywhere, at the finish, I realised I had lost my glasses, my shirt was see through, and I could poor water out of my boots - Good old English weather.

    I love those days. Those are the days that you forget about pain and winning and remember you're out there to have fun.

    That was basically the story of half my xc season right there! lol
    The 1st meet of the year we had a 2 hour lightening delay...the course so amazingly muddy that I told my team just to have fun and run through the puddles so we did.
    Rain always makes for a good story afterwards. Always miserable during, but good story afterwards.
