While for me, today is a day rest and fun, for Val it was time for another race. The Surf City 5K on Main St, Huntington Beach got started at 8:00 AM to kick off 4th of July festivities. Val had done this race last year and it will become one of her annual events. As expected, she did well and placed 4th in her age division.
A little later, Val’s niece, Jaclyn, at age 11, ran her first race, a mile and did well, finishing close to the front of the pack.
And for me? I was just chillin’, watching the races and later the parade that went from Pacific Coast Highway and up the Main St boulevard, which was packed with spectators. This was a very traditional holiday parade and nice to watch.
