Saturday race – Snoball run

I guess since they call it the Snoball Run it should be snowing when we are running. I knew when I saw them plowing the course that this one was going to be all about staying upright and off my butt.

I managed to slip and slide around the course while still having a good time. I’ve run this course before as there are a number of 5Ks that follow this route, but never in these conditions. After a week of crazy negative windchill it just felt good to get outside and run. I was getting cabin fever from running on the treadmill and in the gym.

My official time was 27:34 with an 8:54 average. That got me 11th out of 21 in my age. Overall I finished 96th out of an entire field of 303. Based on the road condition and snow flying in my face all the way I’m happy with the results.

Decide to dominate!
