New Years Day Run (an invitation)
I am inviting anyone who wants to run on New Year’s Day to meet at Alhambra Hall (Mount Pleasant, SC) at 8:00am on January 1, 2012.
I noticed that there are no races scheduled for January 1st in the Charleston area. There used to be a race called the Resolution Run and it was awesome! It was held on New Year’s Day and it was at the River Dogs stadium in Charleston. The organization that ran it was Trident Untied Way and they were starting to build a really good race.
Unfortunately, they decided to start having the race on the first Saturday of January and then decided to hand the race over to another nonprofit which ran it for one year and then gave up on it…
It’s too bad because this is a great way to start off the New Year. Not everyone gets hammered New Years Eve. Even the ones who do can still run the next day (plenty of people puke during races).
So I am just going to run that day and I am inviting anyone who wants to run to come out and do it at the same time! I put this out on Facebook (www.facebook.com\mooreonrunning) and there are already a few people who have responded that they will be there (cool!).
I am going to run 12 miles that morning (to bring in 2012), but anyone who shows up can run whatever distance they want.
The route is easy: start at Alhambra Hall (there's a restroom in the park), run up Center Street, turn right on Ben Sawyer Blvd to Sullivan’s Island (turn left on Middle Street if you want to go further) and then go back.

No pace groups, no t-shirts, no pressure, just a bunch of people getting together to run!
Hope to see you there!
