02/05/2006: "Hypothermic 1/2 marathon"
As per Mike's instructions I participated in the Hypothermic 1/2 marathon this morning... although, due to a crazy snow storm it was slightly modified. I guess 20cm of snow, -8 degrees, and 35km/h winds (with gusts to 45km/h) will do that to a race. I knew it was going to be an interesting day when I woke up to 3 foot snow drifts in my driveway.
Anyway, it was decided that we would go over to the Zellers parking lot and run back and forth for an hour... approx 900m each lap. It was pretty windy out there, and the traction was terrible, but it was a fun event. More pictures can be found here.
Yes, I did wear goggles. Yes, they were very effective. Yes, that is a sweat-cicle.
