Despite the wet weather, I had a blast at the Luckython on Saturday.
After so many weeks of nice weather, it was a little sad to wake up to a wet and blustery spring morning, but considering how lucky I usually am with race day weather, I can’t complain too much. Despite the damp, the temperature was fairly warm and overall it was a blast.
The course wound through a golf course, which meant for a rather narrow start. Katie and I, running together, were forced to walk a good portion of the beginning, or run on the muddy/wet grass.
There was plenty of St. Patrick’s Day cheer. Surprisingly, Katie, Jason and I weren’t the silliest dressed people around. Jason, of course, was faster than us but posted a great time as 2nd overall finisher for the 5K. He also won his age group, whoo hoo!
After Katie and I finally finished, we were all treated to a ridiculously good potato “bar.” You could put black beans, meat, sour cream, nacho cheese, regular cheese, butter, chives, onions…. nearly everything you could imagine on top of a very hot potato.
Overall, this was a great choice for my first St. Patrick’s Day themed run and an enjoyable 5K.
