Full results of the races can be viewed by going to the Green Mountain Athletic Association's web page at http://www.gmaa.net/GMM2002.html. This will display the marathon results, and there is a link to the half marathon results. This is what that web site says about the weather on this day: "Weather: light rain showers, strong south wind (20 mph with gusts over 30 mph), temps in the 40s". They describe this as "less than ideal weather", which is an understatement! ;-)

Checking in on October 18. Tom with Jericho buddy & fellow sexagenarian, Pete Mitchell.

And, bringing up the rear, Tom sheds his poncho, hat, & gloves near the 4 mile mark.

 

Joe nears mile 6 and soon afterward the turnaround point of the half marathon.

 

Stacy approaches the corner of Eagle Camp & West Shore Road, almost at 6 miles.

 

Joe, after his midpoint turnaround headed in the opposite direction, and on his way home!

 

Tom, still bringing up the rear, approaches the 6 mile mark.
