Are you going to rock the Rockburn Cross this year, which is going down this Sunday outside of Ellicott City? You should, it's a great event and it's part of this year's MABRAcross Series.
You like that thing with the punctuation of MABRAcross? How it's MABRAcross and not MABRACROSS or MABRACross or something like that? Yeah. I'm getting wild here with the freeform puncutation. 'Cuz that's how I roll. You ought to see what happens when I set the computer to use non-ISO standard fonts. We're talking craziness.
Anyhow, Rockburn Cross is a really good event hosted by our friends with LSV, and some other people we're friends with. The fields are filling up quite a nicely (78 in the Cat IV's!) and it promises to be another throwdown on a classic cross course that has hills, gravel, fields, mud, a sand pit, and a huge playground where the kids can hang out while you race. Aside from the usual reasons to go race, the course is the attraction here - it isn't super technical but does offer a huge amount of variety in the terrain you cover, with fairly long laps. That makes it interesting, even when your brain is swimming in lactic acid and your breakfast is asking you to let it out a little early, through the front door.
Register for it here.
See you there.
