Today was the annual 5K / 10K run through Seal Beach.  There was also a 1K run for youngsters to kick things off.  Locals had the slight inconvenience of our Old Town streets being closed to traffic for about an hour in the morning.  For everyone, there was more than enough fun to go around.

It seemed like the 5K runners were just starting their run when the leaders of the pack were about ready to finish the course.  And while many 5K runners were still on the course, the first of the 10K runners was crossing the finish line.  The names of the winners (plus the many who won in their age brackets) will remain anonymous. 

The city planners and volunteers did a great job keeping crowds under control, traffic in check, and the festivities going.  Thanks to many from Los Alamitos High School who kept the “fun zone” for the kids safe for the young competitors.

The day began with the 1K for the youngsters.  They were really pouring out their hearts in their efforts to finish the race.  One youngster, Ember, when interviewed, said that “my father told me to run at our planned pace”. 

Seal Beach enjoyed its first springtime event.  The next one is the car show later in the month.  Then it’s the Wednesday music events in the summer month.  It’s nice to live here!  It’s a happy time for all residents.
