10K at Forest Park in Springfield. Beautiful day for late January, low 30s and minimal wind, but the running was challenging -- maybe half on bare or mostly bare pavement, most of the rest on snowpack with the traction was pretty loose, and a few hundred yards on very choppy snow. So hard to know what to make of my time, but I think it was genrally OK. Especially as the legs didn't feel particularly spry.
Saw Goerge and Lyn there, not sure what they ran, also Clint, 43+, quite excellent, though I must add that he had these nice-looking spikes on. Don't know if that made much of a difference. If they gave an award for missing your predicted time by the most (they give one for coming closest), then Cling sure would have won it, as he predicted 49. He appears not to know his own strength.
