You can't say we weren't warned.
My friend Mickie was running in the 5 k on Friday evening and her partner, Amy was going to take photos. Did I want to meet up with them ?
"Sure", I said. "I'll meet you near the start area."
Want to take a guess how THAT worked out ?
After scanning a thousand or so faces, and realizing that I wouldn't be meeting up with my chums, I reconciled myself to enjoying the race on my own.
And I did.
Participants and spectators were encouraged to dress up in keeping with the Pirate theme.
I was really impressed with the costumes folk came up with.
Family and friends came out to show support for the runners.
And ... "THEY'RE OFF !"
The setting sun cast its orange glow on the runners.
|Yep. She ran the 5 k in a "boat" !|
Along the route on Shore Road, encouraging signs, cow bells and cheering watchers urged the racers on.
And what better way to celebrate the end of the race than with fireworks ?
Almost makes me want to lace up the running shoes and get out there.
I said ALMOST.
