Furrow Euro

My daughter and I ran the Furrow Euro just outside of El Paso, Illinois this morning.  Last year we ran this race in about 4 inches of snow but this year we were only facing relentless wind gusts and below freezing wind chills.  There were 4 creek crossings total and the highest water was just above the knee.  The wind really felt cold after that one!  We had a great time and we always enjoy the soup after the race.  I didn’t run my fastest 3 mile time but I decided halfway through that today’s victory would be in finishing the race.  I will count today a victory!
