4th of July – The rest day that I ran and a HUNDY

Just a quick post tonight.

First things first…

I now have 100 Followers!!! YAY!  Well a few more than that seeing as it ticked over about a week and a half ago.  Anywho, thanks Smillions to all of you who follow my reads, I do try my best to be even slightly entertaining and I also really do try my best to cruise on over to all of your pages to take a squizz at all wonderful reads too 🙂 Thanks Thanks Thanks!
I wasn’t going to run today, it was meant to be a rest day but I really didn’t want to miss out on getting my Uncle Sam Badge on the Nike + Running App.  If you run on the 4th of July, you get that badge.  Seeing as you only get to run for it once a year, I didn’t want to miss out haha!

Now excuse my ignorance, but I don’t know a lot anything about Independence Day, and I am not even sure why they call it the ‘Uncle Sam’ Badge.  I was meaning to Google it today but ran out of time as laptops become eye candy to toddlers, so I don’t get the chance to get on it very often anymore.
All I know about it is its a time for celebration – fireworks, BBQ and picnic!!  And all those things are alright in my books!!

I really must apologise to my American Followers for not looking into it to make this post a little more meaningful, but as a consolation I have a few bad iPhone pics to show you from my ‘4k for the 4th’ run today.

So as I approached the walkway that I use to reach the trail I run I found this…
It cracked me up so much hahaha

A ramp down the muddy stairs… and what were these children cruising down this contraption on you may (or may not) ask?

Toddler ride on bikes!!
Seriously how old were these kids to be boosting down this hilly stair mess?!?

And now my badges won today *big cheesey smiley face*

If you have the time, someone must fill me in on the ‘Uncle Sam’ relevance 🙂

Anywho, Happy Independence Day, I enjoyed my run and was happy to not have rested on Rest Day 🙂

Jay 🙂
