Re: From the depths of winter.....
OK, make that International Falls, MN. And I live 70 miles Northwest of there. International Falls does have an annual 10K race on the last weekend of January though. They call it the "Freeze yer gizzard blizzard 10K run. When I was years younger I ran in it for several years in a row, never finishing better than mid-pack.
I'm not a doc. Yeas ago I read about the first Jet Engine Powered Land Speed Record Vehicle, and it was called "The Flying Caduceus." I just liked the sound of it.
