    Congrats to all who took part, runners and volunteers!

    Anyone have a personal recap they'd like to share?

    Hey, another race in VT......whats not to love??? I got to see my friends, John Pelton and Jack Quinn before, during and after the race. There looked like 7 or 8 quality guys at the start, so I went out hard in hopes to distance myself from them. But a 5:36 first mile only put me on the heels of the leader from NJ. He pulled away from me by 20 seconds on the climb up to the Equinox and out West Rd. At 3 1/2 miles, another runner pulled up to me and passed me with a Marist College Singlet on. I did my best to stay in contact with the two of them but as I caught the second place runner, the NJ guy at 7 miles, he pulled away again on the climb as I tried to stay relaxed and stay in contact. I caught him at the 9 mile water stop and headed down a dirt Rd to the left. Somehow my legs came to me and I passed the guy from Marist. From there, I ran scared that the two young guys would come back on me, like young guys do. But at 12 miles or so I did the sinful act of looking back and saw no one....a great sight. I brought it home in a good time and was proud to win such a prestigious event Like the Maple Leaf Half Marathon. I loved the course layout and hope it stays the same. The rain, the fog, only added to the adventure of the day. Back in my young days I ran this event in the late 1980's. This was my trip back and enjoyed myself...It was well worth the trip, and I could not have picked a better tune-up race as I prepare for the Hudson-Mohawk River Marathon in October. Hope to see you again next year. Thanks for a great event. Can we have paper cups instead of plastic next year???
