    Go figure

      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 (40:26; '11) 5mi (29:23; '13) 5k (17:33; '13)

                      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.
