RR: 2013 Vermont 100

July 20-21, 2013
Woodstock, VT
The 25th Anniversary Vermont 100 Mile Endurance Run
Pre-Race:
It had been one incredibly long journey over the last 8 months preparing for my 5th Vermont 100 Mile Endurance Run. I imagined that I'd feel an immense amount of self-imposed pressure returning "home" to run in my favorite 100 Mile Event. Vermont is the only 100 I've been able to finish in under 24-hours. In 4 previous starts of the race, I have 4 finishes. The pressure would come from going 5 for 5, making all of that hard work pay off and finish in sub-24 hours, and achieve my ultimate goal of running a Personal Best 100 Mile time of 23 Hours and 19 Minutes or faster.
