The weather did not cooperate. (about: 2000)|
Mark O'Connor from Littleton, Colorado (10/2/00)
In what could only be described as a freak storm, the weather played a major part in this marathon. My friend and I were going to run this race as a training run for Detroit and when the weather turned, we second guessed our intelligence. After a record-setting warm front the week before, we had anticipated a hot, dry run. As can happen in Colorado at any time, mother nature had a different plan in place for the day. With a temperature in the 30's and scattered snow showers the entire morning, this turned out to be a real test of willpower.
