With temperatures hovering in the chilly teens and ice covering the path, 44 runners turned out to race in the second annual “Sorry ‘Bout That” half marathon, hosted by Polson Running.

Claiming top honors in the 13.1 mile run was Jason Delaney, who crossed the finish line first with a time of 1:26:48. Delaney also placed first in last year’s event, though the ice and frigid temperatures slowed his second win a bit from last year’s 1:13:33 finish.

Keeping warm in brightly colored pajamas complete with a fashionable boa and top hat was Polson High School’s own cross-country coach Matt Seeley with a 1:28:07 second place time that Polson students should be proud of.

Right behind was Missoula athlete Trisha Drobeck, last year’s fourth place finisher and the first female to cross the finish line, bumping up a spot to third and still holding the crown as female victor. Drobeck, an accomplished runner, has  competed in many marathons including the Boston Marathon.

Also bumping up in spots from last year was Austin Allen up to fourth from sixth and Lou Brenner jumping up to the sixth spot from last year’s finish of 11th.
