luck of the irish

It is Irishfest in La Crosse this weekend. Sam and I braved the thunderstorms yesterday to eat Pot of Gold Cheese Curds and Blarney Cake with a few other hardy folk.

This morning we woke up early to participate in the 5k Kilt Run, a very non-competitive race wherein those who run in kilts get special prizes and everyone gets free Killians at the finish. I started the race wearing a homemade kilt and a green bowtie. I finished the race wearing the aforementioned plus a green golf cap and a t-shirt that said "I ran the 5k Kilt Run. That's like running twice around Ireland!"

And then I drank some Killians and ate some Irish Champ. Later this afternoon we're going back for some clogging and Highland Games.
