2014 Portage Winter Blast Half Marathon Recap

With just under a week to go before DWD Green Swamp 50 miler, it was great to get out and pace a fun pace group for the 2nd annual Portage Winter Blast Half Marathon on Sunday. Temps were better than last year but the fresh dusting of snow the night before definitely made for an interesting run through Portage.  Overall it was a great event, well organized and supported.  Congrats to everyone that came up that day and battled the snow/ice on the streets and trails of Portage.
