- Turf Over Land In the world of high school running, there are two types of runners: cross country runners and track runners. I am both, as I have been in cross country since seventh grade and track since first grade. I know how it feels to train and compete in both, and I have come to a conclusion that track & field is way better than cross country. In cross country, the season is much longer than track. To non-runners, the season is about 3 months long. However, in the eye of a runner, summer training makes it even longer by at least 2 months....   [tags: race, training, runners]

To say that Woodstock isn’t an icon would be like saying that the music wasn’t a dynamic character in the movie “Star Wars” or “The Phantom of the Opera”.
