Each day on my course run with John Classen for the 2014 Great Race we start at 6 a.m. and finish around 9 p.m. We run the entire course and also meet with the people in each city who will host us in June. On this leg of our trip we met with the good people in Bennington, Vermont, including Jim Memento at Hemmings Motor News. Bennington, of course, is home to our title sponsor and was the finish of the 2011 Great Race and they are again planning a fabulous stop.

Later in the day we pulled into Poughkeepsie, New York, and the beautiful spot on the Hudson River where are stop will be on Sunday, June 22. Plans there include a radio station promotion which will see one lucky couple winning a trip to the race finish in Florida.

The next morning we headed south for the first time to Pocono Raceway where racers will be able to drive their cars around the track after lunch. Not only will we see the Pocono Mountains that day but we also see beautiful creeks, covered bridges and Valley Forge National Park before the finish at Valley Forge Casino Resort.
