Week 3 – To the Lake and Back

Despite the crazy triple digit heat over the past few days, I think we’ll hit a relatively cool spot for our run on Sunday Morning. Temperatures at the start of the run are forecast to be 75 and as long as we finish within 2 hours we’ll be back at Brueggers before it hits 80. I did check the hourly forecast to see what difference it would make if we started an hour earlier, that would be 73 degrees at the start and 79 by the finish. Not really worth the confusion. So 8AM start it is!

The run will take us straight up Main St to Wakefield. The water stop will be at Nick’s Pizza at the corner of Nahant and Main St. From there the short route will turn right around and head back to Brueggers. There is a middle distance option as well, continuing up Main St to the lake, left on church, left on North to bring you back to the water stop. This addition will make the total distance 8 miles.

The longer runners will leave the water stop and head up to the lake and keep on Main St to the right of the lake. A full loop around the lake will bring them back on Church St where they’ll take Common St and merge back onto Main St to the water stop. From the water stop the route will take them back down Main St to Melrose finishing the 10.7 mile run at Brueggers.

As for the water stop. I’ll pick up water, gatorade, candy, and gu for this week’s run. If Brian volunteers again, I’ll drop the bucket of supplies off at his car, if not I’ll need someone to pick me up at about 7:45 and bring me back to Melrose. Post the options here and I’ll coordinate it all later tonight.

So who’s in for the Sunday Long Run?! ROLL CALL!!!

    Hi Jim,
    I’m available to help you with the water stops. I did my long run Friday and it was the 12.4 so I need another day of rest before I do 10 miles. I’ll fit it in this week. Let me know where you would like me parked and I’ll be there! ciao Haecha

    Ok Haecha, thank you for volunteering for the water stop. I’ll bring the supplies. I’ll try to remember to throw an ice pack in the bucket as well, to add a little cool to the beverages. I didn’t get around to picking up any new gu today but we do have a few left over from the winter.

    See you all in the AM! Pre-hydrate!

  21. Haecha says:

    I can bring a bukcet of ice if we need it. Not sure if the runners like the water ice cold? And Maryanne I think I’ll be okay just have everything in my back in the trunk. Thanks for the offer.
