The first mile I had poor footing, navigating through a thick crowd all while trying not to slip and fall in the slippery slush as we headed over the Detroit-Superior Bridge. Mile 2 brought a little relief from sliding, but was equally challenging in that I was now faced with potholes and puddles. As we rounded the Rock Hall at mile 3, feeling started coming back in my hands and feet. Thank goodness, but then the slipperiest part of the course between miles 3 and 4 resulted in a slower than expected pace. As I rounded the corner and headed back over the Bridge, I knew I made the right choice to start and finish the race.
Great finish line amenity was the Irish stew compliments of Earth Fare, which did wonders to warm me up. Mmmmm!
