Seward 4th of July

7-5-2013 --- The clouds and rain continue in Seward.  Enjoyed the fireworks at midnight on July 3.2013-07-04 Mt Marathon Race 009

We had a great view of Mt Marathon from our RV site2013-07-04 Mt Marathon Race 002

We volunteered to help with the 4th of July Mt Marathon Race – in the drizzle – continues cloudy – cool 54 degrees.  Don’t we look official!  After the kids and women’s race, we directed traffic at 3rd & Jefferson.  We may not have climbed the mtn, but our legs were sure tired at the end of the day!

What determination!  What endurance!  What an accomplishment!

It was fun to see the race, participate as a volunteer and then to put up our feet and relax.   Rolling on to Soldotna.

That fireworks picture is beautiful! Almost looks like a plant with a beautiful bloom! Cute photo with you two in "official costume" for the race!
Looks like you are having too much fun!
