Yesterday I noted that she set another course record at the event, but was having problems seeing when she crossed the finish line. It turns out the cold conditions, it dipped down to 12 degrees F, were causing her eyes to freeze. The story is a scary one, and how anyone could traverse the trail, running for 13 hours, let alone set a new course record, while slowly losing their eyesite, is beyond me. But in the end, Krissy crossed the finish line, and didn’t suffer any permanent damage to her eyes.
Congrats on the great race, and glad to hear the eyes are doing better!
