I ran that day. Headwind indeed, cold and wet, we just ran back then no matter Mother Nature threw at us. Bill was incredible that day in those conditions, 4:56 per mile!
Also ran that day. I don't remember the wind being an issue. Cold and wet wasn't bad at all=PR day. After the race in the garage was another matter=way too cold, especially without dry clothes.
