Congratulations to Forrest who won our last GIVEAWAY! Forrest’s favorite run is in “…Acadia National Park in Maine specifically around Eagle Lake. It has great scenery, very quiet, and the trails are groomed often.”
Speaking of favorite runs, one of mine is in Red Rocks Park in South Burlington, VT. Red Rocks is stunning in the fall, a great place to escape the heat in the summer, but a little iffy in winter. Since I typically run in the wee hours of the morning when it is still good and dark I don’t get there as often as I would like. Yesterday afternoon afforded me the rare opportunity for a sunlit afternoon run so I set off looking forward to the quiet isolation of trails. Because the sidewalks in town were clear, I went without my trusty IceSpikes. Bad idea. The trails at the start consisted of hard packed snow but changed to sheer ice as I made my way downhill. Not quite the liberating run I was after, but a run nonetheless. Tomorrow I think I’ll stick to the bikepath.

And now, for the GIVEAWAY…
How about a new KBVCM hat?
Sooner or later it is going to be time to ditch that fleece beanie you’ve been running in for something a little cooler, and we think this hat, in color combos brand new for 2012, is just the right choice. In case you can’t wait for the GIVEAWAY winner to be announced next week, you can hop on over to the RunVermont store and purchase one. (The store is also the place to purchase your 2012 Half Unplugged gear! We’re offering half shirts in two styles and 3 colors this year.)
Tell us about your favorite guilty (food) pleasure. Girl scout cookies, ice cream, the occasional bacon-topped burger?
The GIVEAWAY closes at 11:59pm Wednesday, March 7; we’ll announce the winner on Thursday, March 8.
