Wicked windy “weakly” 2
Wicked windy “weakly” 2.65 mile race
The wind whipped off Boston Harbor and shoved everyone past
the mile. But on the ocean side even in the lee of the high hills of the
island, the wind took back more than it gave away.
Public transportation to these weekly races is easy. Blue
line to Orient Heights, then a bus through Winthrop to Deer Island that will
deposit you within ten steps of the start and finish line all for a cost of
less than your usual entry fee.
No entry fee for these races. We will go against the brutal
weather all winter. We might even have a prize for those who navigate around
the 2.65 mile perimeter loop in an ocean snow storm.
