Excelsior Firecracker Races 2015
Overhead there was a buzzing like a giant mosquito. The pesty sound drown out the ‘pumped’ music playing to motivate the 3 waves of runners. The Mile, 5K and 10 K runners lined up and headed out 15 minutes later than scheduled. Organizers said it was due to a pickup truck parked on the course, in front of Maynards. I think that excuse is used for a lot of things.... but once the word came across the wires that the street was cleared, the races began.
