I actually ran this race on Saturday. I ran it six hours after the Valen Times 10K. This is significant because I never, ever, ever run in the afternoon.

  • I dressed better for this race. Fewer layers kept me feeling light even though I was very frigid. The wind kicked up. I kept thinking that with each turn the wind would be at my back, but it never happened!
