What Is Cross Country Skiing
Cross country skiing is a sport were you run and slide on skies up to 20 miles per hour down flat land and sometimes slops. It is also a sport about time, meaning right when you take off your time is recorded when you finish the race. You are also competing against other people, trying to finish before them. All I can say is cross country skiing is a sport were your legs feel like jello after wards. In order to apply for the Olympics your going to need a year's worth of practice or even more!
