Upcoming Vermont City Marathon

It’s been a little crazy around here as I started working in the Falmouth Road Race offices while simultaneously kicking off the busy beginnings of wedding season in my photography business! Not to mention it’s now finally OUTDOOR weather and increasingly hard to buckle down at a computer. Knowwhatimean?

But there’s another biggie coming up this weekend – the Vermont City Marathon! My lack of blogging incidentally matches my lack of stress for this marathon. Everyone I bump into this week is asking “are you ready?” and I’m like “ready for what?” Oh RIGHT… a marathon. Well yes, I am ready. I’m ready to let loose and have a great time! I’ve done all the required tapering, building and tapering again after Boston, and any minute I’ll begin that nasty diet of white rice and over-hydration again.

It’s no secret that I’m mentally done with running. It’s probably not the best mental state to go in to a marathon with. I will never plan three races of over 20-mile distances in a span of 4 months again, that’s for sure. But it’s leaving me within nothing left in the Vermont tank other than to HAVE FUN!

I may run 11 minute miles. I may stop for selfies with my friends. I may even walk through a water stop or two. It’s gonna be WILD!osterville-piggy-trotAt one of our top favorite races each year, the Glenna Kohl Fund for Hope “Piggy Trot” 3.7-miler in Osterville!

What I hear is just how incredible the Vermont fans are in Burlington, and I’m excited my parents and friends will be making the trip! Gary and I went to school in the area (UVM and St. Mike’s), and we’re looking forward to spending the weekend with friends – outside of those four hours on Sunday when I’ll be sweating in 74-degree cloudiness.

With so many of our Instagram friends in town too, come join us at 2pm on Saturday at The Farmhouse Tap & Grill!

  1. Sounds like you’ve got the right attitude! I’m ashamed to say that even though I’ve lived in Burlington for 20+ years, I’ve never actually watched the VCM :/ I’m hoping to make it to the meetup on Saturday, and we may actually be staying in town on Saturday night, so I might have to squeeze in some spectating! Have fun!
