State number 18 for the third round, a typical towpath/rail trail marathon along the Lehigh River and canal system from Allentown to Easton, Pennsylvania. Some slight hills, just to move you from one part of the towpath trail to another, on a cool, endlessly drizzling day. Met new friend, Kevin Abraszek by way of Karen Vollan closed in on the finish to hear someone calling my name, Vincent Ma, of course it was Vincent Ma, why would he not be 2500 miles from home at a random marathon in Pennsylvania? Anyway despite all the rain making the course rather muddy, and going out too fast, I eked out a finish about a minute faster than Reykjavík. I should’ve known I was going to go out to fast, the rental car told me so. Fun fact: Yocco’s, a regionally famous hot dog chain got its name when Pennsylvania Dutch (German) immigrant residents had difficulty pronouncing founder Theodore Iacocca’s Italian name. If you recognize the name, his nephew Lee would go on to be the President of Ford, and Chairman of Chrysler.
