We had a warm evening for our first Arlington
run. After gathering at Fitness First, we walked
across the street to the bike path next to
Carberry's. Twenty yard up, there is a dirt path
that leads to the streets that surround the Boys'
and Girls' Club playing fields. We run around these
fields, then onto the bike path and down to the
gates at Alewife. We turn and then run back to the
end of the bike path by Carberry's -- we don't go
around the fields again. We've measured this route
twice on a GPS, and it appears to be 3.1 miles

We also run 4.13 miles from Khoury's in Somerville on
Thursday nights, as we have for the last nine years.
Always free, this race typically draws 20 to 60 runners
and is known as an excellent hang, with food and drink
available afterwards in the pub.
