Frosty Bottom 50

Saturday, January 7th, 2012

I did the Frosty Bottom 50 mile race this year for the first time since 2007.  The race goes from Kincaid Park to Hilltop and back to Kincaid.  You  can bike it, ski it or run it.  I am sure you can guess my chosen mode of travel.

My friends Seth and Bill were doing the 25 mile version and I had a great time skiing with them  to Hilltop.  Unfortunately, I didn’t eat or drink enough during that first half of the race, and I paid for it in the second half.  On the way back down the Chester Creek trail, I finally slowed a bit to reload on food and water, but by then it was too late.  Chet Fehrman caught and passed me at Westchester Lagoon.  I rebounded slightly on the coastal trail, and managed to keep Chet in sight, but I just couldn’t reel him in.  I finished as the second skier, 36 seconds behind Chet.  I was happy with my time and the way my body performed.

Last time I did this race, there were seven people who finished the 50, and about 30 racers in both the 25 & 50 mile events.  Man, things have changed.  There were 70 people in the 50 miler, and close to 150 in the in 25 this year.  Wow, not bad for a day that was barely above zero degrees F!
