I love the 4th of July! It's my wedding anniversary and last year marked the first time I ran a race on the 4th. It was hot and it pretty much sucked . But my team ran it and we had fun.
This year, while I'm finally "running" again, I'm in no shape to race and taking pictures and spectating has been a lot of fun!
Most of my teammates were planning on running the Reston Firecracker 5k, which is 2 miles from my house. So, Dash and I headed over to the race to spectate:
I got there to catch a few of my teammates pre-race and chat. They were lucky a storm had rolled in the night before, it cooled things off a little, but it was still hot as hell!
I headed over to the mile marker with Jessica and we cheered our teammates on!
I had almost forgotten it was a 5k and my time was limited, so we rushed back to the finish. As I stated earlier, I got married on the Fourth of July, so it was really fun to see that a couple who were getting married that day were running the race (and made the whole wedding party run it too!). I got to the finish just in time to see them finish:
