Firecracker 4 Miler

21 Jul

I did the Firecracker  4 Miler in  Cranford, New Jersey over the July 4th Independence Day weekend.  I’m a personal assistant to a family.  Each summer they go to Maine.  The normal course is J and I drive their car from Florida to Maine, open the house, get some groceries and then the family fly up.  We usually spend a few days there with them and then fly home. On the way up we stop and visit our kids in New Jersey.  

This year their daughter asked, at the last minute,  if rather than driving to Maine, could meet her in New Jersey to give her the car. Having made plane reservation for our return on July 5th this meant an extended stay with J’s son and his family.

So I signed up for the Firecracker 4 Miler.  

Our grandson’s friend, Anthony, also did the race.  He is regular long distance runner having complete several half marathons and numerous 5k’s.

Our grandson’s, Max and Justin, as a part of community service for their Boy Scout Troop, manned a water stop.
