An Update From Mike!

We are here… again.  But, fear not – – it is not a bad place to be!

Said differently, it is time for a new academic year to begin.  Throughout the Atlanta area and across the State of Georgia, the busses have started populating our roadways and the students are bustling through their hallways!

As we make this annual adjustment, we, too, have a few items we believe are worth emphasizing.  We know you are busy coordinating a busy schedule – – and we would not want these items to be overlooked.  These are ways to help you ensure you’re taking care of yourself, covering miles that are good for you, and having some fun along the way!

Our Updated Website
We spent our Summer updating our website and online shopping pages!  So as you head back to school, please get familiar with some of the new features, the great new look, and where to find all the information you will want to come back to time and time again…  Of course, we would be honored if your study habits include our robust offering of Social Group Runs or all the tremendous local races found on the calendar.  Of course, it is also a fully-endorsed academic hack if you have easy access to our new Fit Process page and video to share with a new friend – – or if you ensure that our Big Peach Ride + Run Podcast is only a click away when you start your own walk or run!  Lastly, it is always the right answer to browse our robust selection of shoes and merchandise in our Big Peach Running Co. ONLINE STORE to help you stay strong with your fitness routine all year long!

Big Peach Ride + Run Comes To Midtown
We listened – – and we responded!  Said differently, after we introduced our Ride + Run concept at Town Brookhaven last year, we heard many of our Guests say this would be awesome in Midtown…  We believed they were right!  With all of the bicycle commuters and enthusiasts we see every day from our front windows at 800 Peachtree Street – – and the increasing and improving bike lanes and paths – – it is more imperative than ever to also have easy access in this area to the best bicycles, gear, and service.  Once again, we’ve teamed up with our friends from Giant Bicycles, Liv Cycling | Women’s, and Momentum Bikes USA to offer the best in performance, mountain, city, electric, gravel, and kids’ bikes!  We also have an awesome Service Department and a host of group rides and special events that will populate the Fall calendar!  Here (below) are just a couple of pics to get you amped for your next visit!  To learn more about our inventory, please check this out:  Big Peach Ride + Run.

Big Peach Sizzler Returns BIG TIME
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation recently released statistics indicating that the estimated number of persons living with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is more than 25% higher than when those figures were last published…  This is GOOD news!  Said differently, the increase is reflective of more people living longer into adulthood with Cystic Fibrosis – – and speaks not only to the improvements in treatments but also to the importance of starting and maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle.  How about that as a ringing endorsement for the work done by Miles For Cystic Fibrosis (the beneficiary of our Big Peach Sizzler 10k & 5k)?!?!

And this year’s event (again on Labor Day morning) is going to be undoubtedly epic!

It’s a point-to-point course, showcasing the best of Chamblee, Brookhaven, and Buckhead.  And, man, the finish…  It is spectacular!  It includes a full breakfast from our friends from Flying Biscuit and beer from Stillfire Brewing.  Of course, the always-celebrated Finisher’s tee and the commemorative medal are back, too…  Don’t miss out on your chance to improve the lives of others – – and improve the quality of your Labor Day!  You can learn more or register here.  Even better, you can get one of the limited FREE entries with the purchase of an Endorphin Pro 3 – Running | Saucony.  Visit any of our stores for more information.

Lastly, as we cascade into this new school calendar, there are lessons available for all of us to learn, teach and live…  And whether we are a student, parent, school administrator – – or none of those – – the best possibility for any of us this year is a collective, community-inspired, ever-present Group Project:  BE KIND.  BE GRATEFUL.  And keep moving.

We appreciate you so much!  Thank you for the continued privilege to serve this lifestyle we embrace and to be part of your own magnificent, meaningful journey!
