Week 11 – Breakheart again? You’re welcome.

11 weeks in already. Time passes quickly when you’re busy figuring out all of the details of how to manage miles and hills and chafing, deciding whether GU or a banana is your miracle food, looking for answers that will carry you best to the finish line.

This week’s run is nearly 18 miles with a pretty pond and a few hills. No problemo. We’ll head up to Melrose Common, turn right and wind through tranquil Swains Pond, swing back onto Lebanon and left on Forest St past Oak Grove Cemetery. At the end of that street you’ll find your first water stop at Citizen’s Bank.

From there the route will take you past the Oak Grove T Stop and through a 5 way intersection. Straight through to Glenwood St. Follow Glenwood out to the Highland Ave rotary where the newspaper boy sits and turn right onto the Fellsway East. You’ve been here before, just take that past Grimsbys to the LynnFells Parkway and out to the high school. Stop at the knoll for another water stop.

From there take the LynnFells straight out to Breakheart. Grab a sip at the water stop there and then loop Breakheart. Another sip and back the way you came, all the way to the knoll. Yet another sip and off to Grimsby’s, left down Wyoming, and left on Main to finish up.

If you’re running the shorter route, start out with everyone through the first two water stops. On your way out to Breakheart take your usual turn at Main St in Saugus and back down Howard St. Finish up down Main St for just over 11 miles!

I think we’re good with water stop support with Don and Mikey and myself.

Who wants in? ROLL CALL!!
