Genesis Battlegreen Run

The Genesis Battlegreen Run in Lexington, MA offers runners a challenging 5K or 10K course through one of the most historic towns in America…

…and then rewards us with some of the best post-race food you will find at any race.

Come! Run with me now…

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.)

St. Anne’s Lakes Race

The St. Anne’s Lakes Race is a beautiful road race along rolling (but never steep) roads in the southern New Hampshire town of Hampstead. I ran these 5 miles barefoot (my longest distance ever running without shoes)…and enjoyed every step of the way. This is New Hampshire, after all, where roads are always smooth and well-maintained (certainly compared to those in the Boston area!) But part of this course had been recently resurfaced, so it was like running on silk. Just a joyful experience for my bare feet.

Another treat was the post-race experience: great hummus sandwiches, water, and other refreshments!

Come! Run with me now…

Irish American Road Race

The Irish-American 5-mile road race in Woburn is wonderful blend of town and country. You run down Main Street as if you own it…then turn and climb a couple of short hills to find yourself in the green coolness of the Horn Pond Reservation. A long loop around the Pond takes you back to the town…and then a short but challenging climb brings you to the finish line.

That’s where the real fun begins! Hot dogs…beer…and live music at the Irish American Club. The Shamrock Running Club puts on a great race, and a great post-race party.

Come! Run with me now…
