Mascenic Cross Country has thrown it down!!! The inaugural ‘Cross Cribs & Workout’. Phenomenal idea by the D3 juggernaut, so NHCC.com is asking for NH teams to submit their own videos! What a great way to promote our awesome sport in the Granite State! They should include a quick tour of their own ‘Cross Crib’ and then a workout. At the end of the season, we will post a poll for you all to vote to determine the season’s best video! Check it and as with all of our other posts, feel free to comment!!!

There’s nothing quite like running around that beautiful, one-of-a-kind dirt track, coming around on your third lap, and coming the closest you ever will to quitting cross. I think everyone was a little heartbroken, myself included, when we showed up for practice on Thursday, expecting a 40 minute easy run, and instead going out for a 5070 minute long run, as the next day the team would head up to the Shattuck […]
