Alpharetta: Monday, Feb 2 at 6:30pm. Physiotherapy and Assoc. will have a post-run clinic discussing injury prevention, stretching, and (everyone's favorite), dry needling.


Things That Make You Say Hmmm...

What do you get when you cross a stone fruit with a marsupial? You'll find out in next week's edition of Peachy News.


Hashtag Fun

Every runner has been on the receiving end of some bad advice. Let's have some fun on Twitter.
Tag @PeachyRuns and use hastag #BadRunAdvice and share some of the weird advice you've recived (or given). For example did anyone every tell you to hold your breath during interval training? YIKES! We're in favor of breathing.
We Resolve To Lace 'Em Up!

It’s the last week of January. How are your 2015 resolutions holding up? We resolved to keep bringing new, interesting, and fun ways to help you keep your running resolutions. The entire crew at BPRC loves to run, hike, and walk, and we want everyone else to love it too! 

Speaking of love... Chocolate Peanut Butter, Caramel Macchiato, Salted Caramel...sounds like the makings of the perfect Valentine's Day sampler, especially when you consider these are flavors of GU! With January coming to a close, Valentine's Day is almost here. Show the runner you love some running love with a new outfit, some socks, or even some fresh kicks. When in doubt, a BPRC Gift Card is one size fits all!



What's that - you haven't signed up to see one of the screenings of  "The Long Haul: John Muir Trail", presented by the Yeti Trail Runners?! You don't want to miss this bit of fun at at the beautiful Chattahoochee Nature Center on Saturday, January 31st. This film chronicles the epic adventure of ultra runners Hal Koerner and Mike Wolfe as they set out to break the speed record for the 223 mile trek from Mt. Whitney to Yosemite Valley. Also on the program is a lively discussion presented by BPRC founder, and seasoned ultra runner, Mike Cosentino about how you can plan your own self-supported “Long Haul” adventure. There will also be the opportunity to win some great prizes during the discussion.

We're offering 4:00pm and 6:00pm screenings, with a great opportunity to mix and mingle at 5:00pm between the two shows. We'll serve up some adult craft beverages (over 21 please), craft root beer, and some light snacks. You'll get to hang out with fellow trail enthusiasts and check out the Discovery Center at the CNC. Best of all, 100% of the $10 admission proceeds go to the Chattahoochee Nature Center!

Space is limited to 65 seats per show, and we're rapidly reaching capacity so don't delay, sign up today!
Register for the 4pm showing
Register for the 6pm showing (Please note: the start time on the sign-up form for this event is listed as 5pm for the pre-movie mix & mingle. The screening begins at 6pm)


The Friday Night Happy Hour Clinic series continues! On tap this week is Sports Cardiologist Jonathan H. Kim, MD.  Dr. Kim will shed some light on recent controversies in endurance exercise, the utility of sports cardiology and how this fits the active older runner, and any other cardiac issues you wish to discuss. This casual round table format question and answer session should prove interesting and enlightening. See you at 6:30pm on January 30th at BPRC Decatur. 


Back pain? Hip pain? Knee pain? That’s against the rules! Make a date with BPRC Marietta and Rami Odeh of Formwell Fitness on Saturday, January 31st at 8:00am. Rami is going to teach us how most strength training routines for runners are best done with nothing more than body weight. He'll have lots of other helpful tips and tricks to keep you fit and injury free. Come dressed for a run and workout, as you will start with a 5 minute easy jog/walk, do 5-10 minutes of warm-up/movement stretches, and about 20 minutes of core. Then you'll have the option to head out for a short run or do some post-workout stretches. All told, you’ll spend about 60 minutes getting a fantastic workout while having fun.  (Don’t be surprised if you’re a little sore the next morning.)
