Since the cross country season already started i would have to wait until next year. Im interested in joining the team but im concerned im starting to late(ill be a junior).I've never been on any track or cc team before.
i need some advice:
Is it too late to start?
what does it take to make the team?
how long are the distances you usually have to run?
whats the average times for running a mile or 3 miles?
how in shape do you have to be?

and if your on a cc team please give me as much input as posible thanks!
