I ran w/ #11 - finishing w/ a 31ish time - good for 3rd in her age group.
Then there was #12 - he did the 10K, coming in under 50 minutes and taking 1st in his age group. His secret - doing it with his eyes closed, while apparently outrunning Santa.
A nice easy start to the year. I kind of needed it as (meant to post this the other day) a couple of days ago I ventured 8 miles up Barr Trail and then back. Taking 4 hours. The snow up higher kicked my butt - literally. The mile and a half above Barr Camp took me 45 minutes - most of the time trying to stay on the trail - not an easy task and it looked like very few people had ventured higher recently - so it was a challenge to stay in the limited amount of tracks - if I missed a step I was up to mid thigh or higher in the soft, white stuff. Kind of fun, but truly exhausting. After turning around, trying to get any kind of momentum resulted in 2 things - face plants and laughing at my silly self. The further down the trail the easier it got but by the time I got back down to my car - my waggin was draggin.
