Austin, TX – If your New Year’s Resolution is to get in shape this year, then this post is for you. Austin’s running community will sponsor its annual “Black Eyed Pea Run” New Year’s Day, January 1st. This thirteen-mile course will start at the REI Gateway at 9 AM and end at Rogue Running’s new home, The Speedshop, located downtown at 410 Pressler. Whether you’re an old pro at running or still in the process of “bodily renovations,” this course is free and open to all.
The Black Eyed Pea Run began nineteen years ago, when six friends decided to kick off the New Year with an after-party run. These six legends included Paul and Sheila Carrozza, Joe and Joyce Prusaitis, Gregg Evans and Paul Seals. Although years have passed and the course has changed, the tradition remains the same – running enthusiasts in Austin gathering to run early New Year’s day, before most people have emerged from their post-New Year’s coma. Best of all, after the run is complete, runners can enjoy a feast of lucky collard greens, black-eyed peas, mimosas and beer. Of course, there is also a free t-shirt given to all participants. Participants will need to RSVP at the event website, here. Also, feel free to check out their Facebook page for more info, here.
Whether you’re an “early bird gets the worm” type of person, or just looking to do something new this New Years, you can start 2012 by helping make Austin an icon of healthy living!
