Congratulations. Crazy conditions for a race. You did fantastic under tough conditions!
Thanks for all the kind words guys and gals. It was actually a good time getting out there and battling the elements, at least once I gave up on the idea of running a PR. I forget sometimes that this is supposed to be fun, and seeing all those other idiots like me paying money to play in the snow definitely put a smile on my face.
PRs: Marathon (2:49xx; '13) Half (1:25xx; '12) 10k (37:25; '14) 5mi (29:23; '13) 5k (17:27; '14)
Great job in that weather.

Way to get it done in tough environmental conditions! Congrats on a great race, SIAR!! You are impressively fast, and I can't wait to read your next RR!
But The Smile That I Sent Out Returned With You.
Yep, shorts. He actually fell at one point too...had to be darn cold going down. I had intended to go with shorts as well, but I decided at the last minute I might be better served by keeping my muscles warm in tights.
Namtor...I'm all for the right shoes....you buying? lol.
