SPCA Mutts & Marshmallows Hot Chocolate Run 2018

NC's record cold snap from end of December through early January impacted my preparation for this race ... rather than toughening up and running through the cold, I scaled back and took some extra rest days. On the one hand, was a little disappointed with my time as I'd hoped to be close to my last result. Want to see times starting with 25, 24, or even 23 at some point this year, so putting up a time starting with a 26 felt like a step backwards. On the other hand, this was my first time with a top ten overall finish and my first age group win, so I'm pretty happy about that.

Let's call the slower time a function of the course (wet, muddy) and conditions (cold,windy) and try to focus on the positive, shall we?
