Weather report: 18°F heavy snow to 6 inches, feels like: 5°F Wind: N 11 m/h ... looking out the front door it doesn't look much more than 5 1/2 inches.
Throw my gear on, pin my race bib on, and snap a picture of the dumbass that going to run in this weather.
Warm up for a mile or so.
Am I warm yet?
It did warm up a bit (no that's not a police helicopter search light)
It got absolutely balmy! (Had to put some spf 45 on)
Got a little lost, but there was no difference between the rock hard grass and the tar path - both were covered with snow
Made the turn for the finish line and was moved by a pretty flag waving in the pines:
Had some difficulty running quickly in the 6 inch snow.
(P.S. Never look at your feet when you should be looking straight ahead)
But when I got home I checked. One ... two ... yes the same number of feet I left with ...
Total time 5k: 42:43.
