Kudos to all our incredible event organizers and team volunteers (athletes and family members) for an incredible 2023 Race for Snow event. It was spectacular!
This week will feature some nice and easy recovery, and an opportunity to catch our breath after all the training, race organizing, and glitter-wearing that happened last week. We’ll have an additional day off, either Thursday orRead More
Great work this weekend up in Craftsbury. It was awesome to get to ski with so many of you, work on technique, and enjoy the snow. I know I can speak for all the coaches when I say that this weekend got me SUPER stoked for the rest of the year of racing and training!
This week will be really easy — focus on getting some rest. Don’t worry about “hitting your plannedRead More
It was an unseasonably warm and humid morning last Sunday, as competitors started to show up around 8am at the base of Mt. Greylock. Besides EMXC, the field included some of the strongest New England teams, including the SMS juniors, GMVS, and Craftsbury GRP, not to mention college racers from Harvard and Williams. We held a pre-race team meeting covering the complex logistics of theRead More

So, the cross country or soccer or field hockey season is over, and you’re itching to get back to ski practice. But, you’re tired -- you’ve had a lot of meets and games in the past few months -- and you’re not sure if you should take a rest first, and for how long. Sound familiar?
At the end of fall sport season, it’s common to feel confused about how to make aRead More
Great work last week with all the testing!! A lot of solid results. It was a tough week to PR as a result of the rain, cold, and the repaving of the DP test hill, so if you didn’t PR, keep that in mind! The bigger thing than PRs at this time of year is to practice the process of completing a TT, and to come out of it feeling as though you have something you’ve learned for next time!Read More
As part of an effort to give back and to the areas in which we rollerski, immediately AFTER Heath's Bridge practice on Saturday, October 22 we are planning an "old school" strength workout: installing trail markers, cutting and moving brush piles, and removing invasive species from along trails. This is an opportunity to create some good-will with the neighbors there, as well as to learn aRead More
This week we will be doing our third and final formal testing week of the year. This means that it is the last week we’ll dedicate, more or less, to testing before we get to the winter season. This doesn’t mean that we won’t do any more time trials — in fact, we’ll do lots more! But this is the last week where we’ll try and get all the dryland time trials (strength test, 3k test, and DP test)Read More

EMXC Juniors - This week will be a medium volume week with a focus on just getting a bit more volume and intensity under the belt. We’ll do two intensity sessions this week, as will begin to be our norm as we get into the fall. If you are running cross country or playing a fall sport and haven’t checked in with your point coach about how to balance training, this is a great week to do so! And,Read More
