Happy Fourth of July
A great day to be an American. About 250 runners showed up to North Port's second annual Firecraker 5K. It was a steamy morning in Florida already in the 80s F at 7:30 am. The course was out and back in a residential neighborhood starting from Dallas White Park. My time was slower than usual but fast enough to get second place in my age division. Addie did a personal best for the summer although she was unhappy to be behind me. I think this will be the last race finishing in that order given her steady improvement and my stagnation.
The rest of the day was great ending with a traditional barbecue with friends and family. The fireworks were great again at Boca Grande.
