To the Northeast or Bust!
Tomorrow I leave for the Vermont 100…with an extended stop on Long Island to attend my 25th class reunion and visit with my Mom.
It’s been a busy few weeks since my last post, during that time:
I discovered that DNFing from Highlands Sky was a good choice. Within four days after the fall I was back to running my regular mileage
Yesterday, after 3 consecutive days of 20-22 mile runs I started my “taper” for Vermont. After spending so much time running these past 2 months, I hardly know what to do with all my time and energy! (Packing at the moment!)
The last few weeks the gardens have come into being and we are harvesting swiss chard, cucumbers, and basil out of our vegetable garden.
This is peach season in the Southeast and we’re fermenting peach wine on our kitchen this week.
Tomorrow my registration for JFK 50 Miler goes in the mail.
Other good news-after “loosing” my crew and pacer to other life obligations, Joy Grossman from Woodstock, VT has agreed to pace me last 30 miles! Yay! (The Vermont Race Committee set this up for me-thank you John!) At this point, I plan on using drop bags to act as my crew.
I’ll write more on the road.
