Winter came on with all its beauty today.  Temps were in the upper 20s and the
trail was covered with a good 4 inches or more of the white stuff and it was
still coming down hard.  24 hearty runners still came out and challenged themselves
to the 2 mile course.  This included several Land Shark runners who are gearing
up for the National Junior Olympic Championships next weekend in Rhode Island.

Despite all of the snow, there was one runner who ran under her handicap.  This was
the magnificent Jessica Raab.  Congratulations, Jessica!
