Distance: 14 miles
Pace: 7:15 to 7:30 min/mile (average)
Bathrooms: Limited. Soccer stadium bathrooms are sometimes open. Usually a pot-o-potty within sight. Plan beforehand.
Route: Paved bike path, mostly flat
Pros: New route. Quick hop onto bike path from WSU and then head downtown along the bike path. Should be a sweet early morning run with positive vibes. Nice history with both Wright-Patterson AFB and Huffman Dam along the route. Hydration and nutrition graciously sponsored by our friends at Advanced Running
Tip: Barefoot strides on plush WSU soccer artificial field afterwards to loosen the legs and achilles. Need we say more?
Bellbrook: 6:00PM Start, Subway (137 West Franklin Road)
Distance: 6-8 miles
Pace: 8 to 8:30 min/mile
Bathrooms: Limited to none. Subway has a bathroom as does Dot’s Market across the street.
Route: Slight uphill and downhill
Pros: Nice easy chill run through Bellbrook. Sleep in on Sunday. Start your week off on the right foot.

Distance: 10 miles
Pace: 7 to 7:30 min/mile
Bathrooms: Limited. Single stall male and female. Clean running water.
Route: Paved bike path, flat
Pros: Nice part of the bike path and is easy to access from US-35 and Factory Road. Catch the sunrise over Dayton on this early morning run.
Tip: Don’t miss the turn. The park is not well marked and doesn’t have an address in Google Maps. Head north from US-35 on Factory Road and turn right quickly. Parking is right near the bike path.
