Firecracker 5k July 4, 2017

Great Firecracker 5k July 4th run in 2017.  This run was located at the Reston Town Center in Northern VA.  There had to have been at least 2000 runners at this race.  This was used by runners and walkers from old and young people.

My wife and our girl friend ran July 4 morning.  These races always seem to start at 8:00 am.  This seem to be crazy because we have to get up very early in the morning.  At 8 am it is not as hot as it can be, but it was pretty toasty.

My 5k runs usually take me about forty minutes to complete and the girls take about 45 minutes. As a slow runner I am a survivor.  From having a stroke and and having a language disability which is called aphasia, life moves on.  I never give up!!

Now moving on, this is what we like to do after a race.  After we finish these races we like to have breakfast at a place called Ted’s Bulletin.  Pancakes are one of my favorites.
