The sun is shining on Vermont today!

We begin with today. A Thursday. The sun is shining across the morning lake, and we’re not running today.  However, we’re running in the Vermont/ New Hampshire Komen Race for the Cure on Saturday morning in Manchester, Vermont on the heels of a half marathon this past Sunday in Saratoga, New York…

There was a lingering sense of frustration from The Gold Trout Running Club at the start of the half marathon on Sunday.  Inadequate signage left dozens (or 100) still looking for the start at the “normal start line” at the Saratoga State Park before the race.  The taunting at the late start line did not help the mood. After some proper feedback to the 3C LLC race directors, we feel like they’ll be more prepared next year.  Lisa finished her first half marathon like a champion and we ate crepes at Ravenous in Downtown Saratoga to celebrate her achievement!  It’s becoming the regular post-race spot in Saratoga – get the Crepe Marcel!

We are thrilled to have a growing team for the race/walk fundraiser on Saturday.  A returning teammate Andrew McKeever from the Manchester Journal, high school friends, lifelong friends, new friends, and family. The weather report indicates a 40% chance of rain/scattered thunderstorms, high of 80 low of 66, but we’re going to stick with our optimistic dry, breezy forecast instead.
