Sometimes, I try to write things to amuse you, and try to send you running on a route that will entertain you as well. This is not one of those times. This week, I’m going to be a little selfish and schedule MY favorite Saturday morning route. We’re going to West Boxford. (Well, I’m going to West Boxford. Please come with me.) It is the time of year when cool mornings are coming back (thank goodness) and more people should be eager to get out there and run. Bring a couple bucks of folding money; the store has been opening early enough to purchase a beverage at the mid-point.
Virtual Boston Marathon
Number 3 has informed us that there will be course support provided for Virtual Boston Marathoners on Sept 12th, sponsored by the NAHS XC Team. Here’s his message in case you missed it:
On September 12th members of the NAHS XC team will be setting up water stations at the common and Reynolds Playground (Johnson Street) from 6:45am-12pm for people who are running the virtual Boston Marathon (or a shorter route). The team will also be handing out snacks and special prizes at the common for the runners that finish the marathon on Saturday.
Please plan your routes accordingly and let me know if you plan on running the virtual Marathon or shorter route for planning purposes.
Make SURE to let us know if you plan to run your Virtual Marathon that day, and take advantage of this generous offer. There’s a vague thought that there may be gift certificates and some leftover shirts floating around for those who “register” with the support staff. Maybe your route is undetermined. I know Bill has planned to run 4 loops of the BRC 4th of July 10K course as the bulk of his run. Fast Eddie is running on Monday, in 4-mile loops near his parents’ house. He sent an email inviting others to join. John Gorman is running with his son and will make it to Reynolds at the 16-mile mark. Maybe you have already planned to run another day or route entirely. In any case, we wish you all Good luck, and Godspeed.
