Rothrock Forest, February 12, 2011

An astounding 41 runners came out for this first February addition to the Tussey Teasers schedule, an out-and-back run in the reverse direction on Leg 9 of the Tussey mOUnTaiNBACK course. Fresh snow flurries and a cold breeze created appropriate pre-start conditions. From the snow-covered parking lot on Lake Road, the first mile of the 2.9 miles out was mostly dry under foot, followed by half a mile of icy but cinder-treated surface. The last 1.4 miles on Krise Valley Road was unplowed, and covered with soft snow. Travis Cain and Cassi Knight dominated the field on this day. A few runners added warmups (such as Leg 10 out and back) before the 10 a.m. start. A few runners initially missed the turn on Krise Valley or overshot the turnaround at Wrightsville Rod & Gun Club cabin. Also noteworthy this day were Karen and Kate Schulte, who each completed their first run further than 5K. Bravo! Thanks to Michael Goldfine for on-the-scene pics.
