Chilly Half Marathon and Frosty 5K

Tomorrow is the Chilly Half and the Frosty 5K. This is a great race out of Burlington that happens at the beginning of March and a lot of runners use this as a pre-race run to Around the Bay.
The Benders usually have a great presence at both of these great races and tomorrow’s Chilly is no exception.  I don’t know the exact number (last minute changes and such) but I believe we have something like 29 members participating.  What a great turn out!  The weather is calling for somewhat “mild”  temperatures for the race. Considering we have been in an Arctic deep freeze most of the winter I think anything is better than – 38. Who is ready for winter to end??
We would like to wish each and every one of our Benders a fantastic race tomorrow!!  Have a great time!
