So it's between the Cross Country and Track seasons. It's winter. It's cold outside. There's snow and ice on the ground, and you likely have some XC and/or Track spikes that aren't getting much use. Time to put them to some good use. That's right, put them on and go for a walk/run or just use them to get around in general.

You see those pointy metal spikes? They dig into the snow and ice and keep you from slipping and breaking your arm! Yay! So put 'em on and get outside. Take a walk, or better yet, a RUN!
I'd also like to give credit where credit is due. Got the idea from Kevin Gray, a fellow XC/Track runner. Great idea, Kevin!
