We are quickly approaching the 1-year anniversary of the launch of the InsideGSUSports blog. It has been a great success and it started with the Peachtree Road Race last July.
The world’s largest 10k and its 60,000 runners will once again take to Peachtree Street on July 4. With its Georgia State roots, we figured it was time to once again call on Panther Nation and the #PantherFamily.
If you are a GSU alum and will once again be running, we want to hear from you. After the race, we will put together a blog with everyone’s times, but before the race, we want to know your story.
Over the next three weeks, we will publish your stories on the InsideGSUSports blog as to why you run the Peachtree. Maybe you ran your first while a student at GSU and still run years later. Maybe you run in honor of a family member. Whatever your story is, we would love to hear it. If you just want to be included on our list of Peachtree runners that is fine as well. At the end of the day, we just want to hear from you.
As an added bonus, if you would like to train for the Peachtree or run the Peachtree in a GSU t-shirt, we have your back. Send your information to Associate Sports Information Director Mike Holmes (firstname.lastname@example.org) along with your t-shirt size and address and we will get a shirt in the mail. Our only request is that you send us a photo of you in your shirt at some point on race day so that we can include that in a blog post as well.
Finally, if you are not already, make sure to sign up to receive instant notifications when our blog is updated. It is simple to sign up and makes it easy to keep track of GSU Athletics. Just put in your email address in the box in the upper righthand corner of this page.
As you finish up your training for the race, good luck and Go Panthers!
