In the options, I have set the blog to receive comments from “anyone – including anonymous users”. If someone knows what is needed to correct this, or if anyone wishes to send comments about the blog, race or whatever, I can be reached directly at email@example.com – Thanks!

The sun & warmer temps than expected melted a lot of snow today. About an inch or less of slushy snow remains, with more in shaded areas. How much it freezes back will depend on just how cold it gets tonight.
With all the runoff from the melting, it may be difficult to keep the feet dry crossing a couple streams unless the freeze helps brings them down tonight.
The rock face on the 2nd loop (Yellow Trail) may be icy in the morning -- the alternate path above it is not a well worn one – although it may be flagged as the course by race time. Some very narrow sections of the Yellow Trail near the end of the loop are tricky when wet, more so when snowy or icy.
Some of the course flagging may be on the ground due to the icing earlier in the week.

After the rain yesterday, the 4 or 5 inches of snow is down to a couple inches or so with a frozen crust. The picture of the trail hasn't changed much today except the icy coating on the trees is gone.

As this post is being entered, a heavy snow is falling here in Louisville.

According to the RD, there will be several changes in the course from last year, most notably within the first 7 miles of both races. A new trail is being added & a traverse along a gravel road (added last year only) will be removed. This change & others will be noted in detail soon.

Larry Hilton, a Naturalist with Louisville Metro Parks, has confirmed that the latest re-route on Siltstone Trail will not be opened till after LLTH. This is good news to those who like challenging hills, bad news for those whose legs are gone when they reach this long, stair stepped hill. When opened after LLTH, the trail will go around & along the side of the hill adding a little distance to the course next year. Larry also pointed out that there’s logging activities right next to the Siltstone Trail on the far end of the (50k) course and that the race organizers may want to use a different colored ribbon than the pink/red flagging used thru this area.
