A snowy afternoon like this should inspire knowing grins from Ann Heaslett and Joe Kurian, the Madison runners who slogged through similar fluff to claim victories in the edition of the John Dick Memorial Crusty 50K earlier this month. Since its first running in , the kilometer ultra marathon in the Southern Kettle Moraine State Forest has challenged competitors with bitter cold, harsh winds and deep snow. A layer of ice under several inches of fresh powder added a special element of danger for the race on Feb. Over the past week, Heaslett, 44, and Kurian, 28, shared their race recaps with me and made it clear the conditions made their wins all the sweeter.
This looks like perfect John Dick weather
