Here’s the plan for this year’s Spring 22 Miler:

Read over the package. Note we’re leaving at 7AM, be there, be ready, know where you’re going.

There are more than enough water stop helpers and drivers so that if you want to run some you can. For most that wanted “a few miles” I put you down for running a half. As far as I know the following will be available all morning to drive Jim, Derek, Lisa, Gillian, Paul, Jackie, Jeanne Murphy, Mike Fitzgerald, Bridget. Ensure one of them or another half runner is available to drive you car the distance you won’t be.

Runners: It is almost time for the longest of long runs before your marathon. This run can seem overwhelming for those doing it for the first time, or the second time, or even the tenth time. Realize that you’ve already done most of this run when you ran 20 miles. 22 is just two more miles, and 26 is just four more than that. You are ready. Also remember this is just 6 short runs between water stops. You’ve done a run like that already. Any job seems more manageable when you split it up into smaller pieces. No section of this is more than 5 miles, you can run 5 miles no problem. Also remember I won’t be timing this race. THIS IS NOT THE BOSTON MARATHON. This is a training run on the Boston Marathon course. Many of us have had our best runs on this 22 miler, this is not where you want to peak. Use as a training run, and a chance to familiarize yourself with the course. A bit of a sight seeing tour. Lastly this is your final chance to test out your race day routine. Eat like its the marathon, sleep like its the marathon, just don’t run like its the marathon. Other experienced marathoners please chime in with any words of wisdom…

Also, just one more roll call (so I know you know the plan). Who’s in?!

    Thanks for organizing Jim. Great work, as always. I would also like to run a bit if ok. If not, no worries at all. 🙂

  2. Gail says:

    Thanks everyone. Little apprehensive about this run, hope I can do it. Note that Clif will be out on the route this weekend as well, supporting runners with their Bloks, Gel and Clif bars

  3. Sue w says:

    Would u add my brother John to the runner list (but not the carpool). Thx!

  4. Michele DeAngelo says:

    I’m planning on the full. Not sure why I’m on the half list..hopefully I can do it..
    More importantly thank you for putting all of this together… and of course our awesome MRC family….

  5. Gillian Petrozziello says:

    Hi Jim! I will be coming with Lisa and Derek. I can also offer my car if need be. Can take 4 (snug) passengers. Thanks!!

  6. Krissy N. says:

    Krissy and Kenny will be there and plan on running 22. Thanks!

  7. Mike Hartin says:

    Jim, I have extra room for two runners and/or extra gear in with Jeanne Murphy (driving, support) and myself. We’ll be heading to Bruegger’s Hopkinton in a black SUV. Thx!!

    Mike Hartin

  8. Mike Sikkema says:

    Also happy to offer my CRV for hauling people or supplies. And since I’m running short, also to shuttle folks back to the cars, if needed.

    Thanks as always Jim!!

  9. Jeanne Boisseau says:

    Larry and I are going back to Plymouth after the run, but if you need space, we can take back supplies, lost and found etc. We also have water, Gatorade and other goodies as well as the first aid kit in our car

  10. Alice Beltran says:

    Hi Jim,
    Thanks for organizing!!! It’s so much easier when someone takes this detailed task!!:)

    The only thing I noticed above is that rows 33 and 34 are repeated, not sure if that is throwing of numbers or not.

    Also, let me know if you want us to supply paper cups, we’ve got plenty!!

    See you sunday!!!

  11. Bill Riley says:

    Hi Jim Thank you for Organizing everything . I am assuming you have me in and spelled my last name wrong. #7 you have me as Bill Filey And hope you mean Riley. Don’t want to take any chances .Once again thank you and all the volunteers for everything. See you Sunday

  12. Heather Lane says:

    Hi Jim, is it too late to sign up to run 22 on Sunday? If not, I would like to sign up. If it is too late, no worries; its my own fault for having fear of running commitment. Thank you!

  13. Jim says:

    Ok, I almost have the plan together. AT this point in time everyone that wants to run has a seat in a car. The drivers will be:
    Jeanne (MikeH, I’m not sure who’s actually driving)

    Alice, as of now I don’t need your car, but maybe Jeanne/MikeH will let you drive and then Jeanne can drive your car for the water stops? Let me know if you guys can agree on that, otherwise you’ll be a passenger Alice (sorry).

    I have a busy Saturday but I hope to have the plan posted early tomorrow, then updated as the day goes on. Each driver should print out a plan. Also each driver (including Alice) send me your cell phone number at JimCarson@MelroseRunningClub.com


  14. Jen D says:

    Thankyou so much for all you do Jim . I’m in for 20. See you tomorrow !

  15. Brian Walfield says:

    Hey Jim,I’m still hoping that I might make it.I know that means that there may not be a seat for me.
    I hear that there might be a collection going on out on the coarse again this year.

  16. Don Keren says:

    Thanks to everyone for helping make this happen, see you in the morning!

  17. Jackie says:

    Hi Jim, Elaine Scadding has a plus 1 (she did RSVP that on the blog last week). Just wanted to make sure you didn’t miss anybody. See you tomorrow!

  18. Jeanne Boisseau says:

    Thanks everyone – see you all in Hopkinton!

  19. Tracy Conneely says:

    I’m in for the full if there is still room. Thanks!

  20. Jim says:

    Oh, and Alice… yes on the cups. I have some but we’ll probably need more.
    Let me know if that’s ok otherwise I’ll run out again.


  21. Kris van Herp says:

    Thanks again Jim and everyone else! See you in the am!

  22. Rowena Hakkaoui says:

    I just want to make sure, I don’t see my name on the list of drivers, do we still meet at Brueggers Melrose at before 7am?

    Where do we meet up in Hopkinton? I take it we start running 8am or until everyone gets there?

    Sorry to be asking too many questions. It’s my first time running this route and I’m excited. LOL! I don’t want to end up in another state.

  23. Rowena Hakkaoui says:

    Never mind. I clicked on the map and got all my answers answered. I’m so excited and I’m not even running the Boston Marathon and I still got the fever. hehehe!

  24. Brian Walfield says:

    Hi Jim, I will be there in the AM. If you’ve got room great! If not no worries! Sorry to be a pain.
    Thanks for all your hard work!

  25. Nancy Gaudet says:

    See y’all bright and early ????

  26. Michele DeAngelo says:

    Are we going to the dockside after???

  27. Jannel says:

    I’m sorry I can’t be there to hand out water this week. I hope you have a great run and I’ll see you next week. 🙂

  28. Jim says:

    Ok, I think I have everything in its place. There was a page that wasn’t included in the PDF last time that has what people are in what cars.

    Drivers, can you print out a copy of the plan for your car.

    Everyone meet before 7AM, cars leave at 7! Remember to bring a change of clothes, warm clothes.

    Drivers, there are gas stations on either side of the road when you get off 495 in Hopkinton. How about we have even numbered cars go the station on the right for a pre-run bathroom break, odd numbered cars go to the station on the left. After the bathroom break head to the Starting Line and wait for everyone to arrive. We take a picture by the doughboy statue and at the starting line as we get started. We will try to start as close to 8AM as possible.

    The finish gets a bit confusing due to a lack of parking and runners finishing at very varied times. Fast runners you may be hanging out for quite a while. Make sure you have a change of clothes. There are a few coffee spots across from the church where you can change and even hang out for a while. We come to the run as a group, I like to try to leave as a group. Its the only real way for me to make sure nobody is driving back to Melrose without someone. That may not seem important to you when you’re in a car but believe me it would become important if your car or your bag went home without you.

    Yes, we are going to the Dockside, they know we’re coming. I told them we would have about 30 people around 2PM.

    See you in the morning!

  29. Elaine Scadding says:

    Im sure I wont sleep a wink, but I’ll see you at 7:00

  30. Ashley DeAcetis says:

    Thank you SO much for organizing Jim!!! See you in the AM!! 🙂

  31. Amanda Di Re says:

    Yaaaay!! Jim thank you for all your time and hard work you put in to making this happen!! And all the drivers thank you for taking time away from your weekend to help out!!

    See you all bright an early!

  32. Alice Beltran says:

    Thanks Jim!! I’m fine without driving, it was just a preference but I’ll be fine 🙂

    I’ll bring cups!! (sorry for the late response)
    Thanks again,

  33. Gail Severt says:

    I am in for the full. Looks like the weather will hold.
