2013 New Years Day Group Run!

We are doing it again!

I am inviting anyone who wants to run on New Year’s Day to meet at Alhambra Hall (Middle Street, Mount Pleasant, SC) at 8:00am on January 1, 2013.

Alhambra Hall
Once again, 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 (instead of the first day) 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 http://www.facebook.com/events/423668551032837 and there are already over forty people who have responded that they will be there (sweet!).

Breach Inlet
I am going to run 13 miles that morning (to bring in 2013), but anyone who shows up can run whatever distance they want.  I am even going to mark the turnaround points for 1.3 miles, 2.013 miles, 13 miles and 20.13 miles!  

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 and then when you are far enough go back.

Pitt Street Bridge with my son.
For those running the 1.3 and 2.013 miles distance you will go out to the Pitt Street Bridge and then come back (one of the most beautiful routes around).   

Just remember, this is an unsupported run.

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

Hope to see you there!
