In addition to a free entry to either distance race, I'll throw in a Fort2Base prize pack featuring:

Awesome giveaway! I ran this race last year and would love to do it again.

For Independence Day, I am going on a run... then we don't have any plans. Just chilling and spending time together! :)

Last night we went to see the Navy Band Great Lakes and during one of the songs they played all the different songs for the Navy, Army, Air Force, Cost Guard, etc. and different veterans from the audience stood up for their song. I thought that was really cool!

I ran this race and was hooked on it. Loved it and the atmosphere.
For Independence Day, I am running my first 5k and celebrating since I had surgery for breast cancer six weeks ago. Then, hanging with my dog and enjoying the day!

I ran this race last year and fell in love with it! It is great to see so many of our military out there and being recognized.
For Independence Day, I ran my first 5k of the summer to celebrate my journey and continuing recovery of my breast cancer surgery 6 weeks ago.
Now, plan to hang out with my dog and enjoy the day!

I liked Fort2base on twitter and facebook. I was in a local hometown race this spring where 4 young men from the military ran the entire 4 miles dressed in complete gear and full packs. When they crossed the finish line together, everyone stopped and applauded. It brought tears to my eyes.

On July 4th, I ran the Tinley Park 5k, had dinner with my parents, grandparents and nephew, then went and saw the TP fireworks.
