Groundhog 5k RR - pics included (Read 105 times)


    Congratulations.  Crazy conditions for a race.  You did fantastic under tough conditions!


    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.

                      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 buying? lol.
