Traveled down to Woodward Park in Fresno, CA for the 3rd Annual Pirates of the CURE-I-bbean Booty Run 5k benefiting the Relay For Life. The sun was shining, but it was a cold morning with frost covering the grass. About 10 minutes or so before the race there was a costume contest voted on by the crowd of runners and spectators. People of all ages were dressed up. Found a couple of BNB Runners and waited for the start of the race.
The start of the race was a little congested, as races tend to be, but opened up very quick. The course was a loop traveling along the road in the park and paved trails. False flats and small rolling hills, the course is fast. I did not want to really push it so I felt I took it nice and steady while snapping hundreds of photographs. Took a short walk break about halfway through to take a selfie and post it to social media. Finished with a good pace and was greeted at the finish line by a cardboard cutout of Jack Sparrow and BNB Runners. Instead of a medal, this race hands out iron keys. Some of those keys fit a lock on the treasure chest filled with prizes. My key did not fit.
