Last year I wrote about our new Fourth of July tradition of doing our own (Independent?) 4 on the Fourth. Mike and I are looking forward to doing the same run this year, as well. I also proposed the idea of celebrating the Fourth by doing other “fours”on the Fourth -swimming 4 laps in the pool, reading 4 chapters of a book, trying 4 yoga poses, doing 4 random acts of kindness, catching 4 fish (which is Mike’s goal), lighting 4 sparklers…you get the idea.
Perhaps you’d like to give this “Fours on the Fourth” idea a try as well. If you do, we’d love to hear about it. You can leave a comment here to tell about your celebration and you can also post a photo on Instagram and tag us @runningfifty #independent4onthe4th.
Whether you enter a race, run four miles on your own, or try some other “Fours on Fourth” we wish you a fun-filled, safe Fourth of July!

I do do a 4 mile race on the fourth.
Congrats on getting halfway through the states! I’m taking my time. 🙂
Have a great race! Thank you. It was nice to make this halfway point. Enjoy your journey :)!
Happy 4th! Since it’s a cross training day for me I started the morning with a HIIT/strength workout focusing on 4 muscle groups – legs, glutes, arms, and abs. I finished with a quick yoga session (10+4 minutes long). Matt is celebrating with 4 pancakes for breakfast. Looking forward to seeing what other things we can do in fours and seeing what you and Dad come up with 🙂
