Homework runs are a highlight for me during RunBuds. For the past few years, as a leader, I have hosted homework runs on Thursday nights at the running store and rotating Saturday homework runs in the mornings all around Durham. We usually get a bit longer to run on Saturdays so it’s nice to check out some of the places folks might want to run in the future for RunBuds 2.0. On Thursday nights and Saturdays, I would have everyone circle up and determine which pace groups we had represented, then we would start out on our run with a defined turn around point. Thursday night also involved a jumping picture.
