Pretty slow getting out of the starting line... as their were 1000s of people literally... the snow started coming down pretty good and the road was getting pretty slippery... kept very cool during the run... after 1st mile i felt great... not cold at all.
What would you do differently?:

nothing... this is an awsome and very entertaining race.. I will do it again next year for sure.. this is my 2nd year doing the reindeer run.

Very cool race!  I was thinking about doing the LTF race around this area, I think this seals the deal!

Looks like great fun! 

I have the Chiller Challenge 8K coming up in January.  That's always an interesting race.  Makes winter a little more enjoyable when you live in the midwest.

Great photos! Glad you had a good race. It was cold in Florida today for our Jingle Bell Jog - about 60. Believe it or not people break out the gloves and running tights.
