Week 11 – Welcome to Spring

Oops, I don’t know what happened to the original post, but its gone. Trust me it was amazingly eloquent, but since its gone you get this one instead:

This week we do Swain’s Pond and Breakheart (seriously, is there still ice there?!). Start up East Foster, turn onto 6th Street which becomes Swain’s Pond. Run until you get between to ponds then remember Swains Pond Ave turns right at the next intersection. Follow that to Lebanon where you go right, left at the lights onto Forest and then you’ll find the water stop at Citizens Bank on Main Street in Malden. Water stop.

Take Winter Street ย over to the Oak Grove T Stop, over the tracks into a five way intersection. Go straight across onto Glenwood, through some windy hilly streets and you’ll magically find yourself at the rotary at the Fellsway East and Highland Ave. Go right there onto the Fellsway and run through the hills, past Grimsbys, onto the LynnFells Parkway over to the knoll across from Melrose High School. Water stop.

Running short? Go up to Main Street and right to Brueggers. Running long? go straight until you get to Breakheart. Water Stop.

Loop through Breakheart however you can without hurting anything and come back out the way you came in. Water Stop.

Head back down the LynnFells Parkway back to the knoll. Water Stop.

Now take the LynnFells over to Grimsbys, turn left on West Wyoming and left on Main St til you get to Brueggers. Stop.

That’s it. Who’s in? Roll Call!

(Btw, if you haven’t read and responded to the post before this, do it now)

    Jim, I am going to run 8 miles with the longer group and can leave my car at the Knoll for the water stop. I can either get supplies from you or I can just provide my own water/Gatorade/cups and other stuff. Let me know what works. Jen R.
