My race this Saturday is Mt Mitchell marathon, the shorter race of the Mt Mitchell Challenge. The Challenge goes to the top of Mt. Mitchell, the highest mountain east of the Rockies. All trail, lots of vertical, and lots of snow/cold. Last year, for example, it was 8 deg at the start, well below 0 wind chill on top, and they had big issues cause all the water at aid stations froze. After relatively little precipitation this winter, a lot of snow has fallen there the past few weeks. Hopefully we can still run the race. Here's a picture from earlier this month on the race course.
