Thanks. As for the conditions, that's a chance you take. Unfortunately, this year, it seems like I'm making up for the many dry races I've previously run in. When running a team event, though, one thing I will never do without a better reason than feeling soggy is leave my teammates hanging. Dana, unfortunately, had bigger issues than feeling soggy to deal with so, if you can say I defeated him, it would have to be counted as a forfeiture.
I'm not sure how the people calling splits got to their positions but the volunteers generally did a great job showing how much guts they had to be out there just as you'd expect them on a much more pleasant day.
Next race is most likely the Stout alumni meet. Get to lace up the cross-country spikes (if I can find them this time – I better make sure I can).
