I did a race on December 14th that a friend told me about at a local park. It was a trail run 5K with 10 "camp style" obstacles along the way. The race was put on by a YMCA in conjunction with a camp that is an off shoot of the Y. The run was called Get Yeti to Run and a participant even did the whole thing in a head to toe Yeti costume! Crazy! Temps were about 22 degrees and there was about 3 inches of fresh fluffy snow on the ground. It was a very small race [less than 30 people] and I said, "why didn't you guys advertise this more?" They said it was their first year so they wanted to keep it small. I raced it full out not realizing they they weren't even timing the thing or giving results at the end. I ended up third overall, first female. The obstacles were fun and got harder towards the end when you were tired. We took a wrong turn and ended up going more than 5K. The ending was an awesome tarp slide into poofy snow!
