Week 12 – The Plan (Part II)

Here’s where you get completely overwhelmed by how much I over organize this.

Here is the link to the route for those running it.


Memorize it well. If you get lost out here we’re in BIG TROUBLE! For the most part it is straight. Rte 135 to Rte 16 to Rt 30. If you think you’re supposed to turn, you should be at the corner of Washington St and Comm Ave in Newton.

And here is thetransportation and water stop plans. Its got a lot of info to make sure we don’t lose anybody tomorrow, and that you’re all well supported all day long.


Oh good, I see Haecha is coming too. That’s one more car, one more driver, and a few more seats for runners in case we have any other additions.

Speaking of cars and drivers, remember that Hopkinton is 45 miles from Melrose, that BC is 21.5 miles from Hopkinton, and Melrose is at least 15 miles from Boston College. Also remember that gas is closing in over $3.50 per gallon. Feel free to tip your driver.

Any questions post them now, otherwise see you before 7AM tomorrow behind Brueggers.

    The level of organization is quite impressive-it looks like you might have done this a few times before.
    I’ll be there bright and early to get the prerun bagel.
    Thanks for all the effort.

    Jim, you should go around the country teaching seminars on how to coordinate marathon training. You bring it to a whole new level. I’ll be ready for my assignment tomorrow.
