Snowy weather confirms need to say, "Goodbye Yeti"

It was a cold, snowy morning today as the Western Runners Club prepared to begin its fifth running of the Goodbye Yeti run/walk/stroll.
"The road was a bit sloppy in some spots, but it wasn't too bad," said Mike Butler, who ran the five kilometer race in 18:45.0, was the overall winner in the male division.
Sisters Mackenzie and Sydney Kellar had a good day, as Mackenzie, a Western High School junior, was the overall winner among females, finishing the 5k in 22:08.0. Eight-year-old Syndey was the the first girl to finish the kids half mile. 
Fifth grader Ian Devine won the boys division of the kids half mile and went on to also run the 5k. 
Sharing this year's award for Best Costume were the Ray sisters, whose impressive home-made yeti costumes were were designed for both speed and style. 
Other notable finishers were Pat Holmes and Charles McCord, who were the female and male winners of the 63 to 73 age division.
Complete results can be found here.
"It was actually a good day to run," Western men's track coach Lucas Sponsler said. "The snow was a bit sloppy, but it wasn't too windy."
Sponsler said he was grateful to the many volunteers and sponsors who helped make the event a success.
