This is an interesting race because the first half of it is in Arkansas and the second half is in Mississippi. It was very cold at the start and fortunately the race officials had started several bonfires for the runners to huddle around to stay warm. There was snow on the ground and the road was also ice covered. It looked pretty grim at the beginning.
There were quite a few Marathon Maniacs and we all got together for a group picture. I am wearing several layers topped with a clear plastic rain poncho.
The medal for this race was really beautiful too.
