I ran the Snow Joke half marathon in Seeley Lake Montana today. The course turned into an ice rink about halfway in and I was wearing the worst possible shoes. Finally returned to the plowed road with a mile to go and I was able to at least run one mile split in what was my goal for the whole race. Had I known about the course, I would have run the first 5 miles at 6:25 pace.
I did finish 5th in the 40-99 year old age group though. Imagine being the 93 year-old dude who finishes a half marathon and you're all fired up about winning your age group but then you lose to your grandson. Gotta love small town races!
