a run of (good) luck

(redirected from a run of good luck)

a run of (good) luck

A period of continuous good fortune. We've had a real run of luck ahead of the build. The planning permission came through very quickly, the bank approved our second loan application, and the weather is supposed to stay sunny and dry for the next few months. With this refund from the IRS, it looks like my run of good luck is still going!

run of luck

Also, run of bad luck. A continued spell of good (or bad) fortune, as in The builder had a run of luck with day after day of good weather, or Nothing was going right; he was having a long run of bad luck. Originally used mainly in games of chance, this idiom was first recorded in 1782, but the use of run for a continued spell of something dates from the late 1600s.
