Decisions, decisions. Should you go with your Sponge Bob Squarepants-themed undies or opt for something more sophisticated?

It’s up to you at the Cupids Undie Run, set for Feb. 15 in downtown Austin.

The mile-ish run, a fundraiser for the Children’s Tumor Foundation, starts at the Rattle Inn, 610 Nueces Street, and loops toward the Capitol and back.

We’re lucky in Austin. Historically, temperatures are in the 60s that time of year. Not so in many of the nearly 30 other cities around the country that put on similar runs. (Hello Denver, Boston, Philadelphia and Detroit!)

The Austin event starts at noon. The run begins at 2 p.m. and the party continues until 4 p.m. Organizers encourage partici-pants to arrive early and stay late, “and feel free to remain pants-less the entire time.”

Registration is $50 at www.cupidsundierun.com/city/austin/.
