10K runs seem to be common on the fourth. I ran, but it was hot. Most of
the time when I run I don't start worrying too much about hydration until
my target is 12 or 13 miles or more. During the 10K this morning , I
started drinking at mile 3.
We (city) used to have a great picnic on the 4th. This year they moved it
to a new park, and the parking couldn't handle the crowd, so I think a lot
of people left disappointed.
We usually watch the fireworks at Disneyland, but my wife is on crutches
this year so that was out. We settled for dinner out. I cook OK, but I
don't BBQ very well.
