Men’s Cross Country
In the home stretch of a 20-minute interval, when you are trying to replicate the "effort you want [to reach] in a race," there is nothing like having a teammate driving and supporting you.
Just ask Graydon Staples, a third-year runner with the StFX cross country program.
"It is extremely helpful to have someone to push you in training," the Horseshoe Valley, Ont. native says.
The X-Men student-athlete is speaking about how beneficial it has been to return to training with his teammates in recent weeks, even though they are not preparing for an Atlantic University Sport (AUS) meet season.
'And, it makes everything more enjoyable," Staples adds.
