Seattle Adventure Run

Hello Seattleites, if you haven't heard already, Road Runner Sports in Seattle hosts an "Adventure Run!" that is too good to pass up on.  The first Thursday of every month, Greenlake ... 6pm.  



It's a fun, hour long run that involves maps, music, strategy, and meeting hundreds of fellow Seattle runners.  The goal is to make it to as many checkpoints around the greater Greenlake area and obtain tickets to enter into the raffle.  Then, a drawing takes place for gift certificates to local businesses and running gear.  The best part, IT'S FREE!!!


The BIG reveal of checkpoints at 5:59pm, then the stopwatch begins!


Erik had crazy good navigation skillz that helped a ton ...


Home stretch with my RunKeeper iPhone app telling me we trekked 4.75miles.  How bout my new compression socks.  Gotta love em'


Such dear friends of mine -- Kristina and Coral



See why it's called the FUN RUN!!!!
Looking forward to ones ahead.

Sounds like so much fun! Too bad I don't live in or even near Seattle. Question...what do the compression socks do?

So I love Road Runners, but I was so sad to see how small the Seattle location was! I thought with it being Seattle and all that they'd have a much bigger store. Oh well, at least I can still get me some good shoes while i'm home ha.

I wish they had something like that where I live. I would be all over it. Looks like a lot of "fun!"

Have a great weekend.

Looks like fun! I've heard of the socks for flying but not for running...good idea!

So I have been meaning to ask, what's the deal with the knee high socks and CF? Everyone wears them, and i know they're not all 'compression socks' some are just fun looking. and while we're on the topic, what exactly is the purpose of compression socks? ya know, for all of us non runners..
