The last mile is almost entirely uphill. Much of the course was through un-shoveled/unsalted snow. It was 18 degrees. After the last (very steep) hill (no concrete, just grass, covered in 6 inches of snow), I felt a little ill. But I didn’t stop running. I love to run!

The race’s website claims an old Scandanavian proverb: “The weather isn’t bad; you’re just wearing the wrong clothes.”

Thanks, Dad, for doing this with me!
