Congratulations to Olivia who won last week’s GIVEAWAY for a $25 Key Possibilities card. Today’s message is from Andrea Sisino, former KBVCM Race Director and RunVermont executive director. Andréa will be returning to Vermont for our 25th Anniversary and while she’s here she’ll moderate a panel of running legends…
Hi there running friends,
In the not so distant past I spent some time building and directing an organization now known as RunVermont, home of the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon. And since the race will be celebrating their 25th year I can’t think of anywhere I would rather be than running with all of you through the streets of Burlington. Not only will I get to run in my old race but I’ve been asked to moderate a panel discussion of some incredible running icons. Think Jeff Galloway, Bill Rodgers, Frank Shorter and Bart Yasso, the top step on so many podiums, Olympic experiences beyond compare, medals galore and stories to be shared by all.
In order to do this panel discussion, I need your help. What questions would you like to ask these world renowned athletes? As you share with me the questions you’d like to ask, I’ll keep the list. Biggest challenge? Craziest story? Biggest triumph? What do YOU want to know from them? Think of all the miles they’ve logged during their incredible careers, did you ever wonder what Frank Shorter was thinking when he entered the stadium in Munich, mere meters from an Olympic victory only to see an imposter running in front of him? Or how about Jeff Galloway…how many people has he turned onto running with the Galloway method of running? If you would like to know what the Antarctica Marathon is like just ask Bart Yasso. And how can you help but wonder about the fortitude of Bill Rodgers, just what does it take to win multiple Boston and New York races?
So don’t hesitate, post your questions for me to review right here on The RunDown so that we can all enjoy some quality time with some incredible runners at this year’s Sports and Fitness Expo.
Thanks in advance!
Today I am very excited to bring back one of our most popular GIVEAWAYs, a $100 Hannaford gift card.
In addition to the $100 Giveaway, here’s a $3 coupon off any Hannaford or ‘my essentials’ purchase of $3 or more. (Yes, you have to download a little widget to print the coupon, but I promise it’s painless and quick and you only have to do it one time and when we offer another coupon next month it will only take a second to print.)
Hannaford nutritionist Kris Lindsey will once again welcome questions from our runners on her live Facebook Q&A session next Wednesday, March 27th at noon. Mark your calendars!
Before I send you off to enter the Giveaway, just a reminder that every Saturday morning between now and race weekend, Hannaford and RunVermont are hosting group training runs. Every runner gets a snack bag filled with chocolate milk, water and fruit after the run. Get the schedule and details here. We would LOVE to see you there.
