Upon my return from California and with the 4th of July a few hours away all  that could think on my way back home was how bless I was to have the freedom to do what I love. I was excited to meet up with my kids and start our summer running program, but before that, we had an event to attend, the 4th of July Parade in Alamosa.

Even tough the number of attendees was lower than previous years, that fact made me happy. "Really?" you migh ask.. Yes, having less kids participating at the 4th of July parade meant only one thing, either our kids were on vacation or left early to go camping or hiking with their family.  It was nice to have another group of kids ready to rise to the occasion and so they did. 

Our appearance at the parade was neat. This year we carried flags and gave out candy. Then once we run out of candy we offered young spectators to join us for a short race, about  60m. 

By the time we approached the end of the parade we ended up running a total of 6 races where kids from the crowd did not hesitate when we all asked 
"Who  wants to race with us?" 


The whole experience was wonderful as it gave us an opportunity to celebrate with the rest of the community such special occasion: Independence Day.

This year we were so fortunate to have Carmille Garcia come and capture through the lens of her camara some great moments. To see the entire album click HERE.

                   After the parade we took the kids to Milagro's Cafe for a smoothie and some social time.
