Hello friends and family!
Third time's a charm, right? Well, 2020 will be my third year in a row running the 100-mile distance in the Vermont 100 (and my fourth year overall, including a 100K run in 2017).
Once again, I'm looking forward to the challenge of the race itself, as well as the opportunity to reconnect with friends (and to meet new ones) among the runners, pacers, crew members, organizers, and volunteers supporting the race.
It's great to be involved in this race, especially knowing it is a major fundraising event for Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports in support of it's mission to empower people of all abilities through year-round inclusive sports and recreational programming regardless of their ability to pay. (Learn more below, and on their website www.vermontadaptive.org).
Take a closer look and see what the Vermont 100 and Vermont Adaptive are all about, and please consider making a donation if you are able to help this great cause! Thank you!
As always, if you're looking for me, I'll be out on the roads and trails putting in some training miles! :-)
Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization that empowers people of all disabilities through inclusive sports and recreational programming regardless of ability to pay.
