PB at the Frozen Sole

By December, the training is usually ramping down and the flubber getting thicker. This year is no exception. This year seems to have been particularly bad -- training is significantly diminished, and flubber significantly thicker than most years - a visit to Trombino's yesterday did not help the cause... however, something unusual happened this morning. On the first really cold day of the year, with an ice-crusted running surface, I set my 3-year PB on the Frozen Sole 8K course. Clocking a 35:53 (sub 4:30 pace). Weird.
