Fortitude Fitness Systems Competes in Tough Mudder

August 27, 2013

WEST DOVER-On Saturday, August 10, 2013 a team of ten people representing Fortitude Fitness Systems in Derby and Lyndonville completed Tough Mudder New England at Mount Snow in West Dover, Vermont.
I know this because I was a member of the team.
I went into this event terrified I would not be able to finish and would let my team down. I finished the event knowing I had the strength and determination to accomplish anything.
The website, www.toughmudder.com, touts Tough Mudder as “a hardcore 10+ mile obstacle course race designed by British Special Forces”.

North Country Soccer Boys Fielding a Young Team in 2013

August 26, 2013

NEWPORT–Last season was a tough road to travel for the North Country soccer team, as they went 3-9-1 for the year.
This season they are looking to change that, but it will not be easy.
Overall, the number of kids playing soccer is down, and at one point it looked like there may not have even been a JV team, but thankfully the numbers were high enough to have both squads.
Head coach James McKenny will field a smaller team than last season, but he is ready to once again tackle the challenges of the ever competitive Metro Division.
