This is much belated but back in February I finished the FebApple Frozen 50k in New Jersey. It proved to be a good early season training run. The trails were full of snow, ice and mud with light rain falling during a good portion of the race. The conditions slowed me down quite a bit, but were a good test in the art of slogging forward until you get to the finish line that I've become so good at. First ultra of 2013 is in the books...next up...The North Face Endurance Challenge 50 Miler in Bear Mountain, NY!
