Today marks the birthday of America (235 years and counting).
I started my day off with the Firecracker Run.
It is really nice to see so many people in the morning, happy and smiling and thankful for all that we do for the running community.
I saw a few new runners. One runner was surprised to see the presence downtown. He had no idea that there would be so much support while he ran on our downtown streets.
I think he even surprised himself by finishing the race.
What a wonderful 5K. At the end, the water was turned on, but I think the fun run folks enjoyed the water before their race started.
Happy Fourth of July.
