Happy Memorial Day, race fans! This long holiday weekend saw Heatsheets at the finish lines of the Buffalo Marathon and the Vermont City Marathon in Burlington, Vermont.
Late spring in the Northeast isn’t exactly warming blanket nor flip-and-reflect weather, but plenty of racers were still proud to sport their race blankets for finish photos in Vermont and New York.

Nothing like a new PR!
Vermont City Marathon was a tough one for me yesterday .. but managed to run a 3:19 (Garmin time) and finish 6th in my age division. And that means a 10 minute PR. I’ll take it.. ✔️ Couldn’t have gotten through this race without my family & Greg cheering me on and my girls @natalya_zahn, @eronwiernogi & @heatherschmidt_ for their support & encouragement the last 4 months. #vermontcitymarathon #runvermont

Finish line smiles will never get old.
“Runners are a different breed. We take pride in blistered feet, bruised toenails, and chafed skin. We become experts in energy gels and hydration strategies. For many of us, running is a refuge from day-to-day stress. It’s our passion. Our meditation and reflection. We run to live and live to run..” Blowing up Instagram today, blame the #buffalomarathon A photo posted by @kayleigh_bystrak on
We will also never be tired of runners posing their dogs with their metals. Never.
I’m going to do this every time and think it’s funny. #youvebeenwarned #dogsofinstagram #vermontcitymarathon A photo posted by Lou McKenna (@amazingandfabulous) on
Or their cats for that matter.
Dad always rubs my belly for good luck before runs, I think he’s he’s a little superstitious! But it seems to work, maybe he’s on to something:) #orangecat #cat #buffalocat #gato #polydactyl @scotthendersonfitness #ilovethatcat #orangecatsofig #acatnamedjoe #proudcat #buffalomarathon #vegan #veganrunner A photo posted by Joe W.
