Hudson – James Martin didn's run track or cross-country or do other sports in high school. It wasn's until his sophomore year at Lasell College that the Hudson resident was egged into running for the school's cross-country team by his roommate. Martin laced up his shoes and completed his first race in just over 38 minutes for five miles. He was instantly hooked and turned into a successful athlete and team leader. After college, he helped start a Boston-area trail running club, joined the International Sky Running Federation (ISF), and he's now Lasell's head cross-country coach.
