How to bounce back from National Doughnut Day
Wow, we have had quite a week. We had National Running Day, then the 75th anniversary of the launch of Operation Overlord, and now a real “holey”day — National Doughnut Day. (Who among you already knew it was an old holiday and not just something that Krispy Kreme or Dunks made up for marketing?) So the question is: how do we bounce back? By running all the way to another state and back, that’s how! For you RWOBs, be aware that completing this particular route with a member will earn you the borders of Lawrence, Methuen, and Salem, NH. https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/34127440/
I’ve noticed that over the last several months, that we’ve had many new additions to the mailing list. Some of those people have actually been able to attend Saturday morning runs, some have gone to the Tuesday night fun run at Rolf’s, and some… well, some may be trying to increase their endurance on their own to be able to run some of these long routes. To that end, we are bringing back the BRC ExpressTM routes. We all have times during which we may be unable to spend hours running with our friends, and must attend to family obligations, or simply beat traffic to the beaches. These shorter routes will give you the opportunity to run with friends and accomplish real-life tasks. It doesn’t have to be one or the other. For this week, we will offer a shortened Salem route that Mat charted for us, which is only 5.4 miles. It won’t get you borders beyond Lawrence, but it will get you running: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/751587059/
