Ready to rumble
Did an icy slushy 8.5 yesterday in very nice 35 degree sunny weather. The Polar half is this coming Saturday. Weather conditions look ok, but worried about the ground conditions. The Oak Street curve is a sheet of bumpy ice and part of the course in both conditions. With sub zero predicted for Tuesday through Thursday, yesterdays slush will add a nice layer of permafrost to the current ice field. Since there is no real alternative wondering what race organizers are going to do. I don't have lots of confidence in them based on their performance in he December 8K where high winds simply baffled them.
