Conditions could have been better but they certainly could have been worse, too. I only got sprinkled on at the starting line for a few minutes before taking off. One we got going the precipitation quit. Yeah, the road was wet, but it had rained hard enough earlier that it wasn't very slippery.

I started in advanced 3 and had a lovely, "brisk but leisurely" skate with a lovely group of people. Finished in about 1:31 which is about as good as this not so serious skater can hope for anymore. My son participated in the kids sprints for the first time this year which was a blast to watch. And the rest of the weekend was spent in the Duluth waterpark hotel - it's been a while since I've had such a nice weekend.
