People Get Ready


The 2012 Heps cross country season is not too far away, thus soon the wooded paths around the Northeast will be filled with high school and college runners scaring the hell out of old people walking their dogs. We are sure that the host institutions on the schedule below will clear the woods of old people and their dogs during the actual invitationals and championships. But then there is the weather. Remember this Nathan Crumpton photo from the Heps that nearly killed us all.
