That didn't stop them from getting out there and having fun though. Even with the cold weather, there was still some sunshine outside, which runners said was better than last years marathon.

Colleen Gautreau said, "I think it was rainy, so it was nice to have some sunshine."

Gautreau and her friend Aymond participated in the 5k prelim on Saturday, but the main events are the half marathon and full marathon.

Those races were Sunday at 7 a.m. The Louisiana Marathon is a USAT&F certified course and an official Boston Qualifier route.
