Race finished: unofficial time is something around 5:36. Official results have not been posted yet, but should be tonight.
Course was brutal: it rained the night before, and the winds were constant at 30+ mph. The trail was muddy and the forest duff concealed some sketchy spots. It also was snowing small ice pellets throughout the race (welcome to northern Minnesota in May). Despite these factors, a new course record was set today in the 50K, something like 3:48 or low 3:50s. The runner had previously run in the US Olympic trials in the men's marathon.
But I finished. And that's what matters. I'll never run in another big city marathon again.
Look for a race report later on my blog, crazyrunnerguy.blogspot.com
