Thirty-One Years Old

marathon.jpgToday is my birthday. I watched a fireworks display at 12:01.

Alaskan Fourth of July fireworks are underwhelming — since the sun doesn’t set during the summer. But this was pleasant — and the explosions echoed off the mountains and tumbled out across Resurrection Bay. 

And then, drinking an iced latte, I watched the end of the Mt. Marathon Race — wherein the runners actually climb Mt. Marathon (1.5 miles, 3200 vertical feet) and subsequently descend. Everyone ends up covered in mud.

I thought about running in the race — but decided to eat a cheeseburger, instead.

  1. WOAH! My dad’s bday is July 4th too! How cool. Happy birthday.

    By the way, my camera came back to life (see blog).

    ENJOY ALASKA!
