Although gluten-free eating has gone mainstream (gluten-free products and health information have saturated the internet, grocery stores, and advertisements over the past few years, and being GF has even been named a top food trend for 2010) chances are, you may be the only person you know who has known food allergies.  This is why finding a community of supporters -- other people who eat gluten-free as well -- is so important in maintaining your diet and lifestyle, and being encouraged in your journey toward better health.  And what better way to gain support than attending an event dedicated solely too gluten-free living?

Well, mark your calendars for September 12, 2010 -- it's the Got Guts? 5K race and food fair for celiac awareness.  Held in Austin, Texas, Got Guts? will begin at 8:00 on the morning of the 12th, where participants can run in a 5K race, ending at the food fair -- full of gluten-free food options.  Participating in the race is optional, however, and event-goers are welcome to only run, only visit the food fair, or do both!
