Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
Congratulations to Danielle K. who won last week’s GIVEAWAY of a $25 KeyPossibilities card. Thanks to everyone who commented on what makes attending a race EXPO worthwhile.
Last week Jen and I traveled to Philadelphia to exhibit at their Health & Fitness EXPO. We were thrilled to meet so many people who called the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon their “favorite.” We also learned that we have some work cut out for ourselves to spread the word that KBVCM really isn’t that hilly. Many people assume our course is downright mountainous and are therefore scared off. We also have a whole new appreciation for EXPO vendors. It isn’t easy to be in a loud, busy EXPO hall and on your feet for nine hours at a go. (We were very thankful for the proximity of the Reading Terminal Market where Jen experienced a Philly Cheesesteak for the first time and I nearly drowned in fresh squeezed carrot-pineapple-ginger and mango-pineapple-mint juices.) All in all it was a great trip.
Are you running in a Turkey Trot today or this weekend? If you’re in the Burlington area, our friends at GMAA are hosting their annual 36th Annual Turkey Trot 5k at the Gutterson Field House at UVM today (Thursday) at 11am. On the other hand, if you happen to be on Cape Cod, please join me at the Andrea Holden 5k in Dennis on Saturday at 10am. There are no shortage of Thanksgiving weekend runs. If you’re in search of one near you, check out Cool Running and RunVermont’s calendar.
Today we’re giving away another one of these fabulous track jackets. They we so popular a few weeks ago and with the giving holidays right around the corner, it seemed like a winner! This is everything a track jacket should be, and then some. The thermal stretch fabric is made with 58% landfill-busting recycled PET and it features an unstructured shaped hood, soft and fuzzy interior, subtly textured matte face, draft-stopping and chafe-preventing windflap, and binding along the sleeve cuffs and bottom hem. We have a men’s (green) and women’s (light blue and turquoise) version of this coat.
Tell us about your favorite Thanksgiving tradition. Anything goes but I really like hearing about what you love to eat!
