    So this would normally be a fairly easy run – a nice 1.3 mile loop around a lake in Brighton, CO. the course was 2/3 gravel bike path and 1/3 sidewalk. Very flat and easy. Except this day it was low-mid 30’s and snow. Small standing puddles in some areas on the track. I began running, but walked when I came to a snow-covered bridge. There were 3 or 4 wooden bridges around the loop. Back to running after the bridge, but then slowed down when I encountered standing water or mud. Eventually most of the course turned to mud as the runners continued their laps around the lake – some half marathon, some full marathon, and there was also a 50K option (not sure if anyone did that). Being from Phoenix I was miserable in snow and cold. My time was horrible not only because I ended up walking due to the frequent mud, but since there was a 9 hour time limit, after lap 5 and 8 I went back to the car and turned on the heater. Looking at my lap times that added about 20 minutes to each of those two laps. I guess 40 minutes off of my total would be a descent pace for my current fitness level and considering it was 99% walking.

    The runners and the race director were very nice. Love the unique metal, and I would do it again if the weather were warmer.
