Getting ready for July 4

It's the longest weekend of the year, and a few local races will whet your appetite for speed!

Tonight PPTC hosts the fourth Al Goldstein Summer Speed Series presented by JackRabbit. That will kick off a little after 7:00; we're expecting a large out-of-town contingent.

Tomorrow NYCRUNS holds the Firecracker 5K and 10K on Roosevelt Island.

Not to mention the host of "Four on the Fourth" events happening in a town probably very close to wherever you'll be tomorrow morning.

What's up for the weekend, PPTC? Let us know in the comments.
