Vermont City By The Numbers

Here are some of the numbers surrounding my training for next month's Vermont City Marathon:

Personal current marathon count: 19

Consecutive VCMs leading up to 2015: 10

Training mileage last week: 29

Number of miles last week running with at least one dog: 29

Number of miles in preparation for 2015 VCM: Not enough

Number of snow days during 2014-15 marathon prep season that I skied instead of ran: all of them

Last year's VCM time: 3 hours 12 minutes

2013 VCM time: 3 hours 12 minutes

2012 VCM time: 3 hours 11 minutes

Projected 2015 VCM time: much slower than that

Exactly how much I regret all the decisions to ski this winter instead of run: not at all

So that's the situation leading up to this year's Vermont City. See you on the course!
