I’m tripled layered to protect against the cold and light rain during the Tartan 5K and 10K Trot. I’m doing the shorter distance. The St. Luke’s Presbyterian Church of Dunwoody, Georgia stages the runs to benefit their missions.
There was at least one runner wearing a ski mask. Now 34 degrees isn’t all that cold, but I think we had been affected psychologically by the dire weather forecasts for North Georgia. The snow and ice that fell in the north never made it south to Metro Atlanta. Nevertheless, the extra clothing felt good…especially when the winds blew. Back inside the church recreation center, a group of musicians treated us with a performance that fit the theme of the Tartan Run.
THE GROUP IS THE GREAT HIGHLAND BAGPIPERS BASED IN MARIETTA, GEORGIA..LIKE DUNWOODY..ANOTHER SMALL CITY JUST OUTSIDE ATLANTA.
