The Newburyport Yankee Homecoming 10 Miler is coming up at the end of July. Since it’s 2 1/2 weeks out, and I’ve already gotten my running up to 6 miles, I thought I’d give it a try. I contacted my running partner and she said, yeah sure! We figured we’d run a 7 mile training run this week, 8-9 next and then run the 10 miler as a “run” not a “race” . Probably not the best way to train for 10 miles, but we’ll give it a try
So yesterday we ran 7 — It was HOT. We went out at 8am and it was already into the 80s and humid. We ran a nice route all around Newcastle, along the river, passed the Coast Guard Station, past the Wentworth Hotel and Marina and back into Portsmouth. A beautiful route!
