Happy 25th Anniversary Vermont 100 Endurance Run or Ride!

Image
The race preparation started last year as soon as the 24th Annual Race was cleaned up. And thanks to mother nature this past weekend, the 25th Annual Vermont 100 Endurance Run or Ride went off pretty much without a glitch (if you don't count the main tent blowing away Thursday night in the Thunderstorms!)
The race is held every year to benefit Vermont Adaptive, a program founded by Laura Perry Farrell (pictured above) to provide sports and recreational opportunities to individuals with disabilities/handicaps, regardless of their ability to pay. The race had been run for many years by Julia Hutchinson's Dad. When "Hutch" passed away suddenly after a race one year, his daughter stepped up and took over as race director and has been doing a phenomenal job since (even running the race this year with her TWO MONTH OLD BABY GIRL!!)
There was quite a field of runners this year with runners coming from California, many from Canada, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong and South Af…

July 8, 2013
30 years ago today, Jay and I were married by a Justice of the Peace in Amherst MA. We both had just graduated from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst with our bachelors degrees. Our wedding pics were taken at the Hampshire Mall  "Old Fashioned Photos" Studio then we checked into the Hotel Northampton for our honeymoon evening of lobster dinners and champagne! And a Red Sox loss, OY.

About a month later my Mom and Dad hosted a potluck BBQ at their house in Lynnfield MA and we celebrated with friends and family!

Then we drove to Quebec City and Montreal for our honeymoon!
After countless concerts (mostly Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Southside Johnny,  Bruce Springsteen, and Jimmy Buffett); two PHiP Conventions in Key West and one in Burlington VT; trips to Vancouver, New Jersey, NYC, Buffalo NY, Rochester NY, Albany NY, Boston MA, Foxboro MA, Hartford CT, Ottawa and Montreal to see BRUCE; trips to most of the music venues in New England for various bands.…

Bentley's featured a special party menu of: Shrimp Cocktail, Prosciutto Wrapped Grilled Asparagus, Pineapple Pork with Arugula Salad or Smoke Salmon Crostini with capers. They also offered a few special cocktails such as Side Cars, The Gatsby Martini, The Fizz and Champagne.

The cocktail hour entertainment was provided by Sue Gabriel and the Blue Moo Jazz Muze.

Then back to Bentleys, where the party got going for real with Live Ragtime & Jazz being served up 1920's style; late dinner and more cocktails, dancing and a costume contest took place.  Costume winners were Woodstock residents: Mary Ur…
