Just trying to keep up with the sensationalism of the local TV stations!

We are on track to have our third significant snow storm in three weekends. Unfortunately this weekend we have The Half at The Hamptons in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire.

loco running, Half at the Hamptons

This will be the third year in a row that I have run this race. It is usually cold and there was snow on the ground two years ago. If I recall correctly, last year it was just cold. Even when there was snow two years ago the roads were clear and there wasn’t any precipitation on race day.

Now they are predicting snow starting on Saturday and going into Sunday. Since the race is on the coast, we may just get rain. And being February in New Hampshire it will be the coldest rain you can get without it turning into actual snow! Oh Freakin Joy!

I am praying for snow. It takes snow longer to melt through all of my layers and freeze the hell out of me. Rain eventually seeps though everything and then chills you to the bone. It is possible to keep snow from melting through, if you dress properly and it is cold enough.

The link to The Half at The Hamptons website provides their latest guess at conditions. We will get their final word after 5AM Sunday.

Run well my Friends,

Andy

      Thank you. They are predicting 100% chance of snow on Sunday with accumilations of 6-12 inches. The race director is saying tha there is a 10% chance the race will go on.
