Elevation map for the 5 mile loop.
A little brook that wasn't frozen. Or was it?
Regardless of my race, there was a well deserved beer at the end for me.
Waiting in the car for everyone else to finish up....sucked. Though no one made me feel bad about it, I still felt like a loser. I don't think I've ever cut a race short like that, but I knew for me, that was the only option. The worst part was when I finished my loop, the race organizer told me I was leading the women's half marathon. Sigh. Maybe one day.
