Martian Snow

martain logoLast weekend was the Martian Races here in Michigan. I’ve heard of the race series for many years but ha never run it so this year I ran the half-marathon. With temps in the mid-20’s and gusty winds making it feel colder I knew I wouldn’t set a PR. The 2:00 pace group felt like a good place to start to I cruised along with that group for 3-4 miles. Then as the snow started falling and the wind picked up I decided to pick up the pace also. As we ran through Hines Park and around University of Michigan- Dearborn I continued to push the pace and felt good. Finishing with a 1:55:13 was good enough for 8th of 38 in my age group and 268 of 1035 overall so not bad for a snowy, cold, windy half. (And of course here in MI one week later it’s 73 degrees!)
