This race raises money to help make homes more handicapped accessible. Zoe (Zoe's Race) fell in a pool as a young child and her life and that of her family changed drastically. They had to change their home to accommodate her needs and now work each year to help at least one family do the same.
A great race with all the Vermont members of our family there.
My husband and I coming in at the end.
Lots of good food, including Ben and Jerry's!
Jameson and I both won our age groups. Being 60 rocks! And
I wasn't the only one!
I was in the top half but there were walkers and others who don't race a lot. I was 1/5 in my age group. My time was 29:07. The individual miles were from 9:02 - 9:48. Better than I have done in awhile. In fact I just looked and it is better than I have done all year. I knew it felt better but was disappointed - briefly - it was 29 something. But it did feel good, I felt I gave it a great effort and my family was there. As I have said - it was a GREAT DAY!
I went and got Jaxon for Jameson who was helping to break everything down. I changed so I could head out on the bike path. I was right here after all. Sunday is not the ideal time for a peaceful ride but I tried to stay calm and watch VERY carefully as people are not predictable at all. Even the causeway was crowded. I had not thought about the fact that the bike ferry runs on Sundays to get people across the cut from one county to another. I briefly thought about taking it just for the heck of it but I didn't really want to and once out there found out it cost $8.00, too much to spend for my purposes. But I sat there on the rocks for a long time just loving the day.
Above and below the two bike ferries. You can see the
bikes better below.
This guy had his own bike ferry come and the guy in the
rowboat rowed him a long way. In fact I never saw where they
did end up stopping.
I loved this county sign out in the middle of the lake on the
causeway. I had never noticed it before.
A stop on the bike path to enjoy the day.
A nice t shirt and a medal for an age group win. Score!
