L.L. BeanIf you are planning on running in the L.L. Bean 4th of July 10k in Freeport tomorrow morning, you’ll need to get up early. If you have not yet registered, then you should plan on getting there as soon as registration opens at 6:00. The race only allowed 800 people to pre-register, and are only allowing 200 day of registrations which are sure to go fast. It would be a shame to get there and then not be able to run.

If you were amongst the first 500 registered then you’ll need to pick up your free pair of running shoes before the race. Any shoes that are not claimed before the race will be sold after the race. You are going to need time to bring the shoes back to your car.

If you are not running at Bean’s tomorrow, there are plenty of other options in not only the Southern and Central Maine areas but all across the country. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my country’s birthday than running a road race.
