Quick report- ran the very enjoyable, surprisingly technical Black Mtn marathon today. Lots of mud, rocky trails, some ice, and cold rain. A good time was had by all. Full report later (today?). Finished 2nd place, pretty happy with that. Hard to beat a nice trail marathon.
Update 6 weeks later- finally did a Race Report compilation, including for this race. It's all on my Greenshortsrunning blog.
