Ok, I’m back. Sorry for the late post but I came home to a broken computer and a forgotten password. I’ve gotten over those hurdles, now its time to plan a run!
This week you’ll be running on Saturday instead of Easter Sunday. We’ll meet at 8 at Brueggers as usual but a day earlier. The route will take you up to Melrose Common, over to Swains Pond around to Lebanon St, left onto Forest St over to Main St where I’ll have water stop 1 waiting for you in the Citizen’s Bank parking lot. Since its Saturday and the bank will be open, lets move through that stop quickly!
From there you’ll head out past Oak Grove T Station, up Greenwood Street to the Fellsway East. Follow the Fellsway to the LynnFells parkway to the knoll near the high school. I be there next for water stop 2.
Keep going along the LynnFells until you get to Main St in Saugus, go left and run up to Nahant St. Take a left on Nahant and pop out at Nicks where you’ll find me again for a water stop.
Take Main Street back and finish up your first taper run on your way to running Boston.
If you’re running shorter, there are turn backs along the route in many places. Figure out how far you want to run and make a turn towards Brueggers when you need to. If you want to run longer, a typically add on for this route is just to run up to and around Pine Banks. Grab a sip of something as you run past Brueggers.
Remember, because its Saturday the traffic will be heavier as we get later in the morning. Be aware. Run safe.
If I don’t see you Saturday, have a Happy Easter.
