Firecracker 5k


Independence Day is a special day for runners because no matter what day of the week it falls on, you know there will be a 5k to run! It's like a bonus running day! Reid has been wonderful enough to run with me every fourth of July since 2011, even though paying to run isn't really Reid's kind of fun. The first year we ran in Reedville with Becca and Nick (about the trip here and here's a photo of us pre run), then for the three years, we've been running the Firecracker 5k at Reston Town Center. Just like always, Potomac River Running doesn't disappoint when they organize a race!

This year Lauren joined us, as well as some of the HAC coaches/spouses ran too - Emily/Steve and Mike/Kim, but the race was so packed that we didn't have time to see them. But we did run into Kristin and Tess from our 10 mile 5k day!

Reid and I ran a great race (faster than the previous two years on this course - 25:48) and then we waited in line for the photo booth and took some ridiculous photos! It was the perfect way to start off a great holiday!

here we are at the start, you can kind of see the masses of people in the background
