Ironically, Frostbite 5K

Postponed Due To Cold

With burning lungs and ice-encrusted eyebrows, John Ellis, Oneonta, Aaron Stary, Laurens, Kye Breier, Davenport, and Mike Hamlton, Oneonta, finish their run along Ford Ave early this afternoon after completing run in temperatures below 0°. The friends had turned out for the YMCA’s annual Frostbite 5K race, only to discover it had been postponed until a later date due to the weather. Not to be deterred, the group decided to run the course anyway in a race they aptly named the “Frost Spite 5K”. A new race date will be announced soon.(Ian Austin/
