in Giveaway Thursday!

Congratulations to Lisa Fine who won last week’s GIVEAWAY! I don’t know Lisa but I like her blog!You can check it out here. Hopefully winning the Giveaway is a great welcome to the state of Vermont (she only recently moved here).

I loved reading about all your favorite Thanksgiving traditions. My own favorite traditions include serving my father’s favorite French’s Onion-topped green bean casserole, arguing with my siblings over who washes, dries and puts away the dishes (I like washing, you?), and spending the day after doing yard work on Cape Cod.

This week we are giving away one tuition-free enrollment in our Marathon/Half-Marathon 101 class!

If KBVCM will be your first Marathon, Jess Cover’s class is a fantastic way to get expert advice on training, nutrition, injury prevention, running gear and more, specifically geared for Marathon virgins. Everyone I’ve talked to about Jess’s class raves about it; many still foster friendships forged there. The class will take place on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:00pm in Burlington beginning January 30. The class runs for 10 weeks.

Run at least one Marathon or Half-marathon and want some help fine-tuning your training plan, preparing mentally and staying healthy? Check out out Marathon/Half-Marathon 201 class taught by RunVermont Hall of Famer, Sam Davis.  (We’ll give away a 201 entry next week!)

Registration for both classes will open in the next week or so.
