Marathon Burlington

Good cool weather for the runners in the 2007 Vermont City Marathon. Kicked off at 8 am. Got this shot around the corner just before the 10-mile marker on Pine Street. My watch read 8:55 am. These two guys led the field and No. 1 Matt Pelletier, last year's winner, won again in an unofficial time of 2 hrs. 19 mins.

Then I went across the street, grabbed a New York Times and a bottomless cup of Speeder & Earle's coffee and had my Burlington Marathon experience for the year.

Didn't see any politicians running, nor any runner sport a political statement like "Impeach" or "Out of Iraq."  But I did catch one chap, a few pounds overweight, who ran carrying an American flag and a tee-shirt that declared his "love" for "God."

I hope God appreciated it.
