Running: 182 for Frozen 5k on 25-degree morning


SPICER -- The Frozen 5k turned into the Frosty 5k on Saturday morning.

Trees and shrubs along Lake Avenue South were painted with hoarfrost, the air still. The digital sign out front Zorbaz Restaurant, formerly Melvin's, blinked 25 degrees.

Sure beat the last three years of either crackling cold or bitter rain.

The mild day brought in 52 walk-ups for the 9 a.m. start. There were 182 runners wearing a disposable chip timed by Pickle Events.
