Week 3 -Lake Quannapowitt

After a grueling Sunday Long Run in humidity that weighed heavily on each of the 27 runners that partook last week, it looks like a cooler Sunday Morning is in store for this week. Also the hills that tested your legs last week along the Fellsway East won’t be anywhere in sight as you head up  Main Street to Wakefield. This run is a recovery run from last week’s step up week, you’ll get in the miles while your legs shake off any remnants of last week.

So this week’s route is simple. If you’re running short you’ll run up Main Street from Brueggers, into Wakefield, to Nick’s Pizza at the corner of Nahant Street. Nick’s is on the right so you’ll have to cross over at some point. After a quick water stop in the parking lot there, turn around and come back. a A simple six mile run.

Long Run? Start out the same, up Main Street to Nick’s. After the water stop you’ll continue up Main Street, through Wakefield Center and along the eastern banks of Lake Quannapowitt. You’ll be circling the lake counterclockwise, which means you’ll have some left turns to take. When you get to the northern side of the lake turn left into the parking lot of Converse. Follow the footpath along the lake and back onto the sidewalk as the parking lot road takes you to North Ave. A left there will eventually bring you to a set of lights by a softball field, turn left here onto Church Street. Once you get to the church on Church Street you’ll be taking right on Common Street by Wakefield Common. This will merge back on to Main Street and bring you through Wakefield Center back to Nicks for more water. After a stop continue on Main Street back to Brueggers.

As for the Water Stop, this week has one stop at Nick’s Pizza. I will be there to serve up your nutritious treats along with my assistant, the ever energetic Courtney. Thank you to all that have offered to help this week, but there really is only one water stop so we have this week covered. Next week I’ll likely be unavailable, so I will need help then!

Ok, that’s all I have. We had some new faces join us last week, which is always a good thing. Who’s joining us this week? ROLL CALL!!!
