the watchung winter 50k was probably the coldest trail race i've done! the course (three 10.7 mile loops) was tough on its own - but toss in the 22 degrees, wind gusts, sheets of ice that covered the first half mile of the trail - and the weather added an entirely new dimension! i went off course countless times - with one huge "oops" in the last 5 miles of the last loop! i finished up in 6:32 - and easily ran 35+ miles on the day!
will i be back next year - definitely!! here is my race report, and here are the race results.
here are some photos:
