Week 3 – A Little Weather Before The Lake

Last Week – We took off for Spot Pond on a very mild day for January. It felt like early Spring with temperatures on their way to the 70s last weekend, the extra layers of clothes were quickly shed and put in the water stop trunks. (I still have a shirt). We even spotted a buck with two does traipsing through the fells, and a big cat at the zoo was watching runners go by.

This Week – Not so much like last week. It’s currently 16 degrees, its been really windy, and a storm is on the way. Predictions are a few inches of snow tonight followed by some rain overnight. Be prepared for some slush along the way to Wakefield. The route travels Main Street, which is wide. Use the sidewalks when you can, if you’re in the street run single file. If there is still snow on the ground dress to be seen and watch out for plows! If you’re uncomfortable running in the snow, run on your own at another time during the weekend.

The Route – This week is a step back week, distances reduce a bit. The crew will head north to Wakefield with Full Route Runners running a loop of Lake Quannapowitt while Half Route Runners turn around at the water stop and head back.

Start – We’ll head up Main Street to Wakefield. Stop at the Nick’s Pizza parking lot for a water stop.

Half Finish – Turn around and go back along Main Street to return to Brueggers.

Full 2 – The full route will run along Main Street through Wakefield Center, staying on Main Street up along the east side of Lake Quannapowitt. When you reach Lowell Street, continue around the lake by going left, and another left onto Quannapowitt Way into the Comverse parking lot. Continue through the lot, coming out at North Ave where you turn left. Follow North Ave to Church Street where you turn left. At the church turn right onto Common Street. This will merge back on to Main Street and bring you back to Nick’s for another water stop.

Full Finish – Head back along Main Street to Brueggers.

Water Stop – Derm will handle the water stop.

Roll Call – Who’s in?
