I'll bet Soupbone felt a little badly...lining up for only half the usual race. Sounds like conditions weren't as bad as was feared, with temps around zero. The glide sounds ok...was it because of the milder temps, or the blue fluoro? Have you ever used this stuff?

Do you now regret not doing the whole race?

No I don’t regret doing the whole race. I have done 19 of the 21 full marathons and back in the day the trail was technical with lots of twisty turns and climbs.
They have smoothed out the rougher sections over the years. Steve skied the first part of the race when it was -10 at the start. Took him 2:10 hours to get to my start area.
I’m glad I missed that part or my toes would still be frozen.
