Full results of the races can be viewed by going to the Green Mountain Athletic Association's web page at 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.


Tom & Joe on race morning in Jericho - getting ready to hit the road!


Newt Baker, Tom, Joe and Mike at the Folsom School minutes before the race.

They're off! Tom followed (very briefly) by Joe on a chilly, rainy, & windy VT Fall morning.


Mike & Tom watch the start.


Joe, in red cap, approaches the 4 mile mark of his half marathon race.


Stacy Wells, Mike's girlfriend, at the same 4 mile mark.


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.


Joe finishes his half marathon in 1:48! Nice going Joe!
