Join your fellow intrepid conference-goers for an early morning jaunt around some familiar Charleston haunts— 5k or 1 mile, run or walk, go the whole distance or just meet for an early coffee — it’s just a loosely organized* chance to get a little fresh air and fresh coffee to complement the conference’s fresh content.
6:05 am: turn off alarm clock, muster self-esteem, grab shoes
6:20 am: gather at Marion Square Park (near the obelisk), rain or shine
6:21 am - 6:29 am: exchange groggy hellos with fellow runners and/or walkers, mill about awkwardly, double-check suggested 5k and/or 1 mile maps.
6:30 am (sharpish): someone says, “ready, set, go!”
6:31 am - 7:00ish am: you’re out there, walking/running at your leisure, living the dream
7:00 am - 8:00 am: finish your adventure at Kudu Coffee House, and grab a cup
8:00 am: back to the Conference!
*The fine print: the run is non-certified, non-sanctioned, non-Boston qualifying, non-competitive, friendly, sidewalk-only events, and neither is officially or unofficially authorized or sponsored by the Charleston Conference. There will be no prize money, no police escorts, no waivers, no water stops, no fancy porta-potties, no sliced bananas at the finish line— that said, you could do worse than starting your day with a great cup of coffee and some nice new conference-wear.
