The Jack Kerouac 5K in Lowell, MA is an out-and-back that is all uphill for the first mile and half…but then of course it is all downhill to the finish. After the race there is hot soup, cold beer, and live music. What more could a runner want?
(Oh! If you run barefoot, as I do, you’d want smooth roads free of gravel, acorns, and other debris. This race fills the bill. Ideal for a barefooter like me!)
Come! Run with me now…
(I took this photo, and the others below, while running.)
All right! Let’s get to the good stuff–an HD video that puts you right in the middle of this race. Go ahead! Click the ‘Play’ button below. (And be sure to view the video in Full-Screen, so you’ll see the race in panoramic, high-resolution.)
Were you at this race–and if so, what did you like best about it? What could be improved?
(If you weren’t there, I hope these photos and HD video gave you a taste of the race…and I hope I’ll see you at a race next week.)
