Celebrate Good Times

Are you ready for the long Fourth of July weekend? I know I am! Well, actually, what I’m geared up for today is a long plane ride out to Oregon to watch the Olympic Track & Field trials with my fellow Brooks Running blog ambassadors … but, of course, I’m pumped to celebrate ‘Merica, too. And there’s really no better way to prep for all that than with a little light reading and recipe inspiration!
