I'll sign on for this year's race being the best 3-way matchup ever. 2008 Footlocker was a very good field but did not have the ingredients this one does.
Temps forecast in the 20's at the start. Supposed to be a dry week so they will be running on a frozen track. Baxter has adjusted to the trip north in the past but I don't know if she has faced these kinds of temperatures before.
"These kinds of temperatures"? California gets into the 20s.
