Any Injuries: stress fracture foot, itband, sprain of foot, lots of little irritating things
Reasons Goals for Sprinting: The older I get, the slower I get, the more attractive sprinting becomes - after all who wants to wait for a 70 something year old to finish a 5k on the track or wonder if she is ever going to turn up to the finish line in an x-c race. 100m, 200m looks better and better all the time. Unfortunately I do not have the talent for sprinting but maybe if I hang around sprinters long enough some of it will rub off.
