I competed in three relay races this past Sunday - the 40+ race with J.P. McCarthy, The 1/2/3 event with David Reyes and the coed race with my wife, Ellen. Our nearly-eight-month-old son Ellis was also there, cheering us on. OK, so maybe he wasn't entirely certain what we were up to, but I think he enjoyed the sights and sounds and especially all the attention he received.
One of the things I love about 'cross is how spectator and family friendly it is - races are typically held in easy-to-access city parks rather than on the edge of nowhere, laps are short, and the action is continuous. And everybody loves a good wipe-out.
