It's still winter.
Despite a few days of slightly warmer weather, the cold is back. And that can often be accompanied by wind, rain or snow. Being dedicated, hardy people, many of us will push through the discomfort. What doesn't beat us, makes us stronger. But what happens if the weather goes to an unexpected extreme? Well, for some, it means embracing it, and getting out there and racing!
Here a few races we found that are ideal for these dedicated / borderline insane runners. If you're mad enough, check them out!
