I ran well for very icy conditions. I fell on the first turn. The deer trail was difficult heavily wooded. I ran a lot of it bent over. I nearly fell at the creek crossing. I gave a GU at the last aid station to the guy who edged me out for age group 3rd.
What would you do differently?:

I wouldn't give that guy a GU (HA HA). I would be more careful on the turns.

Event comments:

A fun winter run. More challenging than a half marathon. A unique theme.
