"Nighthawks" snowshoe race at Eldora.
I got to the start line with about 60 seconds to spare -- whew! The first segment was singletrack (where we all got bunched up), but then it opened up on the wider XC ski trails. A few people passed me early on, but it was just me and my headlamp beam for most of the course.
As usual for Eldora, it was windy in the parking lot and in the open area adjacent to the Nordic lodge, but calm and beautiful in the treed areas. Light snow and 23°F. Because of the wind, I had swapped from my lightweight wool shirt to a midweight wool shirt, and I was a tiny bit too warm once I started running. Ditto for the hand situation -- my new liner glove + mitten + heat packet combo was a bit too warm.
The course was supposed to be about three miles, but it was only 2.6 -- kinda disappointing after paying $25 to enter. But I did win a cool buff and a hat afterwards at the raffle (I gave away the hat).
I'm disappointed I'll miss the next two races -- one while I'm at SWSW so that's an acceptable swap, but I'll miss the other due to a dumb work trip -- boo.
This event (which also included ski-mo, XC, and downhill ski races) had a high percentage of lean butts in tights -- mostly women. Note to self: next time, pick a post-race lodge seat closer to the bar where all the dudes are hanging out. ;-)

Easy neighborhood run -- sunny, blue sky, chirping prairie dogs, and a coyote sighting.
Calves still very tight / sore from Sunday's race (running on the snow for ~two miles -- like running in beach sand).
