Pre race, in the slush and snow.
Post race, Sandy and I looking very pleased with ourselves.
While training we decided that we wanted to be able to run the 8K (5 miles) in less than an hour. On race day we decided that we just wanted to finish the race. We managed to complete the course in 58.75 minutes, running 11.75 minute miles.
We felt pretty hardcore about the whole thing as only 13,500 or so of the 40,000 registered runners showed up.
