Finding Inspiration During the Longest Winter on Record

Posted by admin | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 26-02-2015-05-2008


Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit, but only a really teeny tiny bit. As anyone who has been training in New England for a spring marathon will tell you, this has been a brutal winter to train in. When Bangor, Maine has received 117 inches of snow and the city I live in over 100 inches, when it snows every other day, when you have 7-8 foot snow banks lining your street, when it’s -11F the morning of your long run, it truly does feel like a never-ending winter. I’m even starting to wonder if I’ll be able to get in any long runs outdoors before April 26, 2015, the day of the London Marathon, (so far I’ve done most week day runs indoors on the treadmill and a few of my longer runs, not easy at all). However, there are people supporting me and companies supporting me who are keeping me in the game and inspired to train wherever and however necessary to ensure I have a successful marathon. I want to give a special shout out to these two businesses who we, as a family, have done business with and who I am very grateful to for their support.

My sincerest thanks go to the businesses listed below:
