Adventure Run: 3BH

How's that for a cryptic title? "Adventure Run: 3BH" Hopefully it made you curious.

The idea is pretty simple: three run segments, three bars. A little exercise, a little challenge, a little social fun, all in one.

The route consists of three, roughly 4.3 mile segments using greenway, sidewalk, and trail. That gives us the "3".

The segments each end at a bar where we can have a brew. That gives us the "B".

The total distance to be run adds up to just barely over 13.1 miles, or a half-marathon. That gives us the "H".

Running a "half" seems a little intimidating, but a 4.3 mile relaxed-pace run, followed by a drink and a break, seems quite doable. Surely we can do this three times in an afternoon. That's the challenge I'm setting up for you.

The idea is for this to be an active social outing, not a competition. Beers, burgers, and/or fries are optional. Bring your own credit card.

I set the end time at 4:30pm, but I think we'll be done with the run before then. You can hang out at the end as long as you want!

    Ok. So we may have to also call this a "3 Bob Run" now.

    Due to the rain last night, I'm going to alter the route of the first leg to get us out of the mud along the Richland Creek Trail. Instead, we'll take Edwards Mill Road to Reedy Creek Road, then turn into Schenck Forest and follow the main gravel road out and back, keeping the overall mileage the same. Looking forward to it!

    The latest forecast is looking much better! Afternoon temps in the 50's and some sunshine. Works for me! Fingers crossed.

    My current plan is to check the weather radar just before 10am on Saturday and make a decision then based on whether we think it's going to be raining during the run or not. Drizzle or spotty light rain is ok. Heavier and/or steady rain would be a good reason to do something else for the afternoon!

    Hmmm. I see a less-than-appealing weather forecast for Saturday. A beer is more fun when it's colder than you are.

    Alright! There are some other brave adventurers willing to join me! This will be fun and at the end we'll say "Oh by the way, we just ran a half marathon too!"

      If anyone is on the fence due to the distance, there are options to cut the route short, if you want to.
