At the Races

Cranford Firecracker 4 Miles, July 4, 2014–Jerry Utr

I participated in the 35th running of the Cranford Firecracker 4-miler this morning which is literally in my backyard as I have done the majority of these since I starting racing in the early 90’s. Conditions were as good as you could get on this day as there was some humidity but no sun, a breeze in the low 70’s. There were a little over 1000 finishers which is a tad light for this race. Instead of the good humor ice cream, they had a new vendor which had yogurt bars (don’t remember brand) which were pretty good. I was able to keep my 2014 streak going of every race being a course record. Here are some of the Essex folks that I found. Please add as I’m sure I might miss some.
