I have been dying for a 4th of July race. Apparently it’s one of the biggest racing days of the year – but I’ve had a hard time finding one…until now! I live in DC – you would think that there would be, like, 10 races on the 4th. I mean, shit happens here. I’ve got Barack on block and G. Washington on the other (or at least a couple of paintings of the 1st Prez). This place is no joke – and one would think that my fellow Americans would want to celebrate the Nation’s Capital with a little run. I guess not… But after literally days of website stalking, I FINALLY found a race. And an 8k, no less! I’m pumped. Plus, I can’t wait to see how fast I can run – I’ve never raced an 8k before. This weekend is going to be awesome.
Is anyone else running race on the 4th?? Take a look at races around your area: http://www.active.com/running/fourth-of-july/
Happy (early) 4th of July – and Happy Birthday America!!
On a [hilarious] side note: BJ thinks I’ve gone “race crazy” ie: I want to sign up for every race within 100 miles of DC. And unfortunately for him, that’s about 98.999% accurate. He told me: “I just want to sleep in some mornings.” He makes me sound like an evil, overbearing wife who never lets her husband sleep in – and we aren’t even married. Yet.
Okay, sorry BJ, I’ll stop asking you to run every single race with me…
