Good Luck in Vermont!

Just wanted to give a quick shout-out to Colin and wish him luck at the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon this Sunday!  Since San Antonio (where you’ll remember I left him in the dust), he’s been a man-possessed training for this race.  He picked up a 18-week, 6-days-per-week training plan, peaking at 70 miles in a week (twice!).  You know how many training runs he missed?  Zero.  That’s 107 out of 124 days that he ran.  It included a 1:33:18 half marathon and a sub-40 minute 10K.  To say that he has prepared for this race is an understatement.

Race conditions are not looking favorable, with starting temps in the mid-60s and highs for the day in the upper-70s or low-80s.  He may have to deal with a fair amount of humidity and wind too.  I’m sure he’ll chew up my 3:22:34 PR and spit it out, but I’m OK with that considering how much work he put in.  His goal has fluctuated between 3:05 and 3:10, but with the conditions as they are, may be tempered just a bit.

So, let’s wish him luck* on Sunday for a great race.  I’m expecting a text message from him shortly after, and I’ll keep you updated with how he does.  If you can’t wait, you can track him here.

*though if he happened to cramp up and finish a few minutes slower than 3:22, I’d be OK with that too.  Kidding!!!**
