Race Update :: July 4, 2006
What a great event today! We had strong runners in the various age groups who posted excellent times. Thanks to everyone who participated, and thanks to Heart & Sole Sports for sponsoring prizes.
We want to acknowledge a special individual who participated this morning. Please welcome Lia Moldovan.
Lia came to America from Romania a few years ago. This is what Lia had to say about the race:
This past spring I became an American citizen, and I also visited my home country for the first time in years. I am so happy, so lucky, so blessed to live in America, and what better way to express this gratitude than running at sunrise on the 4th of July?
We couldn't agree more! We thank Lia for reminding us of the great country we live in. You can read more about Lia on her blog at:
