Last week was fun, let's try the running + beer combo again!
To uphold the tradition started last week, I'm again torn about the route, the length, as well as the start time, so need some feedback. New to this Friday: If demand exists, we will have two pace groups that will meet up post-run for the tasty beverage portion of the event. Please post whether you're a tortoise or a hare so I can gauge what sort of crowd to expect and (poorly) plan for.
Same starting point - Abbott Loop Park @ Elmore and Coventry - traveling a spur-of-the-moment route that is hopefully less muddy as last week and sans downpour. Since I see no reason to mess with perfection, we'd then caravan to Midnight Sun, time permitting, and then head over to Long Branch for a less crowded and rushed dinner option.
Park at Peanut Farm - which I detest with every fiber of my being but might be able to stomach due to the convenience and an okay beer selection - and do an out-and-back run on the Campbell Creek Trail, not sure which direction. (FYI: Peanut Farm is at International Airport and Old Seward.)
Departure time - 5:30? 5:45? 6pm?
Route length in minutes - 60? 75? Longer?
Tell me what you think on these points and we'll figure something out! Other ideas are also welcome!
