Caron surprises himself with 10K victory

Runners deal with cold in different ways


“I didn’t even pay attention to it,” Caron said. “I knew it was cold, and I tried to stay warm. That didn’t really work out, and I’m just really shivering at this point."

Another experienced runner said the conditions were just right

“This is perfect running weather; 35 degrees is exactly how you want it," said Crocker, the coordinator of the Mankato Multi-Sport Club. “It was great, lots of people cheering, the community’s out here supporting the race, and we’re lucky to have it.

"This sends a signal about our community that we are an active one and we value being active,” he said. "I do a lot of the local races, and we’re really lucky to have such an active community.”

As for Caron, he's a St. Cloud State University student majoring in education. He believes he will be back in 2014 to reclaim his crown in the 10K race.

“I have been here the past four years,” he said. “Let’s make it five.”
