Following an early morning low of -26F, temperatures warmed slightly at race time, but were accompanied by a deceptively mild, but killer breeze from the northwest. For those who ran the 8-mile race, the breeze was persistent throughout most of the return, resulting in patches of white skin on the faces of several runners at the finish line - a sign of mild frostbite. Aside from the wind chill, and some icy patches along Dale Road, conditions were otherwise good. With this year's race held more than 10 days later in January than last years' race, the additional daylight was quite noticeable and much appreciated! It was an invigorating run!
