Did you know July 4th is now the second most popular holiday among runners, second only to Thanksgiving? In many ways, running is the ultimate celebration of the American dream: You give it everything you’ve got, relying on your inner strength — and that of your comrades — every step of the way. How better to celebrate the sport that makes you feel as free and alive as the country you live in?
At Moms on the Run, we want you to get out and run on the 4th of July, before all of your celebrations and backyard BBQs. Plan your run, either by participating with one of our locations in a fun run or selecting your own route or race. We think 4 miles on the 4th sounds ideal, but you can choose your distance. Wear your patriotic colors (or hopefully our cute tank!) and then post your pics, tagging us with the hashtag #FOURonthe4th.
A couple of tips to remember: It’s usually a really hot day, so remember to wear your sunscreen and a sun hat/visor and stay hydrated — drinking lots of water and filling your body back up with electrolytes — so that you can enjoy the rest of the day with family and friends. Happy Independence Day everyone!
