HoD/NEXT Wednesday Morning Run

A clearly typical Boston Sunset

Join me for a run in Boston this Wednesday. The run will be around 5 miles and at 6 AM sharp.  I hope to be back to the convention center at 7.

We will leave from the front of the convention center on Summer St and head through Downtown Crossing to Boston Common and the Public Garden, past the ORIGINAL Cheers to run along a stretch of the Charles River by the Esplanade and Hatch Shell. We will run past the Museum of Science, City Hall, and Quincy Market on our return to the conference center.

I’m from Boston originally, so I’m thrilled to be back running in the city – particularly along the Charles where I ran the majority of my miles when I was just beginning to run – I love that dirty water! I should be able to keep us pretty close to the intended path, but if you’ve looked at a map of Boston, I think you’ll understand if we go a tiny bit astray. It’ll be an adventure!

I’m currently training for the Reykjavik Marathon which I am running with Challenge Aspen, a nonprofit that provides adaptive outdoor recreation for people with disabilities of all kinds – skiing and snowboarding in the winter, and a huge variety of activities in the summer. Please consider a $10 donation to Challenge Aspen: bit.ly/2pymexC

Join me! It will be a fun way to see a big chunk of the city on foot!

Update: A great run! Thanks to everyone who joined. I’ve shared some pictures below.

Samuel Adams statue in front of Quincy Market. The ocean front was at this location in the past. Fanuel Hall was Boston’s version of Ellis Island.

Love this dirty water. The Charles Rivah.

Boston City Hall

The ORIGINAL Cheers. The actual pub the TV series Cheers was based on. 5,000 points if you know the name of this pub before they recently changed it to Cheers.

The Hatch Shell and Esplanade

The Holocaust Memorial and the old State House building peeking out.
