Let Freedom Run: Independence Day Races

July Fourth is just around the corner, and you can celebrate the day with more than just a barbecue and some sparklers. You can run. There are a bunch of Independence Day races all over our fair nation, so you can get some exercise while showing some patriotic pride.

Dressed in your red, white, and blue running gear, you can race in the Celebration 5k in Jacksonville, FL, or in the Rotary Firecracker 1k, 5k, and 10k in Santa Cruz, CA. There are races from the redwood forests to the Gulf Stream waters (I know Jacksonville is on the Atlantic side, but it is so close). You can search for races in your area here. Will you be racing with Uncle Sam?

Kia, we're thinking about doing that one! It sold out really fast last year, I'm surprised it's still open.

It isn't on there but the Avery Brewing Company here in Boulder is doing a quick 4K on the 4th... ending at the tap room of course.
