A couple of friends of mine and myself decided to sign up for the Lake San Cristobal run. I signed up for the 10K and my friends for the 5K. One friend wasn't able to make it since she was sick, but Kandace Booth and I and our families made the race into a camping trip as well. If I wasn't running, I'm not sure we would have gone camping! The weather forecast was for thunderstorms on Friday, Friday night, and Saturday.
As soon as we got to Lake City on Friday, it was pouring! Just pouring! Not a good time to set up a tent. Luckily we drove around a few campgrounds and then went back in to town to wait for our friends to hook up with them. By that time, the rain had stopped and so we were able to set up camp without getting soaked.
Kandace's husband drove me and Kandace down to the registration point and then we got shuttled up to the starting point. It was pouring rain the entire time! But the rain did let up for our run and it was just a cool drizzle.
I think this will be a new tradition for us and the Booths and whoever else wants to come: camping and then the race. Two fun things!
P.S. It's a pretty small race - I think there was around 70 of us that did either the 5K walk, 5K run, or the 10K run.
