An Awesome Half Marathon Eve in Vermont

Hello from Middlebury, Vermont!

Can it be any more gorgeous here?

Middlebury VT

I flew in yesterday, had lunch in Burlington and then checked in to my bed and breakfast. I’m here as part of Cabot Fit Team, and Cabot has been a fabulous host!

This morning we took a trip to the Kayhart Brothers Dairy farm, one of the 1,200 Cabot Co-Op family farms.

It was fascinating and Steve Kayhart is an amazing guy.

He was so knowledgeable and passionate about farming. And patient with all my annoying questions.

He showed us around, talked about his family’s farm and then let us meet the babies.

The cows have so much personality. They were so curious!

Some timid but most warmed up to you pretty quickly.

I was utterly fascinated about the farming process. It was amazing to see behind the curtain, so to speak. I buy milk, cheese and yogurt all the time never really thinking of the farmers who are working so hard behind the scenes.

And let me tell you, it seems like HARD work. I admire people who choose to work in agriculture as it’s so much more than a career. It’s a way of life.

After the tour we headed back to Middlebury, had lunch and walked around town shopping in all the awesome shops.

I snuck in a quick nap before dinner,  which was this amazing pizza from American Flatbread.

On a recommendation I tried Citizen Cider — The Dirty Mayor and fell in love.

It’s a ginger-spiced cider and it was delicious.

Once I got back to the hotel I Skyped the boys to hear about their day.

Little Bean is hysterical and such a goof ball just like his brother was at this age. Speaking of, notice one kid is missing in the photo. Don’t you know…  Xbox is WAY cooler than talking to Mom on Skype?

Anyway, I should get to bed. Tomorrow is the big day. I’m excited for the half marathon and curious how I’ll do. There’s a part of me who thinks I’m going to surprise myself. They other part thinks this may be my slowest half yet. We shall see.

Hope you’re having a great weekend!
