2011 new year's (half) marathon: race photos and results

wow, the new years marathon races at van cortlandt park could have been run with snow shoes! snow covered more than 90% of the trails and, even with trail shoes, those were tough conditions to run. i had wanted to do the full marathon (4 loops), but after 2 loops of slogging through the snow i had enough and called it a day at the half. even so, it was a great day to be outside!

afterwards, hiro, emmy and i went over to the bronx ale house to rehydrate with some great beer. in a culinary first, we tried the fried pickles! now that was a real twist on typical bar food (they were fantastic, by the way)!

here is my race report. i'll add link to the results once they're posted.
