July 4th Firecracker Run

It rained at the start line and for the first couple miles! Andrew ran his first race today, the 4-mile Firecracker run in 37:20. I ran it is 27:48. Mom ran it in 52 minutes. I also ran the 1 mile race which shortly follwed the 4 mile in 6:44 (but I believe mile 2 of the 4 miles was actually faster than 6:44!). Linda was there to cheer us on! Offical results to follow soon...

(NEW) Results: I finished with the official time of 27:46, 41st place out of 256 finishers in the 4 mile. I finished with the official time of 6:44 (really slow!), 26th out of 124 finishers and 3rd place of males age 25-29. Linda took my medal (above) and I told her she could keep it for at least the next 20 years!
