Battle Road Runs are Back!

Even though it's snowing as I write this, Spring is officially here and we're starting up one of NETT's longest traditions, our Monday night runs on the Battle Road Trail.

We meet every Monday night in the parking lot of the Element Hotel in Lexington, Mass. and run 10 miles (five out and back). At the end of the run, our sponsor, the Element Hotel, provides beverages and snacks for us in a private room (no joke--they really do!).

If you don't feel up to a full 10-miler, you're welcome to start out with us and turn back at any point and meet up with us back at the hotel later.

Details are posted in the Meetup group every week, so please RSVP if you plan to attend.

To get you all in the right frame of mind, I wanted to point you to a song called "Battle Road" written by one of my favorite singer-songwriters Kevin Connolly, who lives in the area and walks his dog out on the Battle Road Trail regularly.

If you go to his web site here, you can play his song on the bottom of the site (hit the arrows to the left if you want to get to Battle Road).

"Do what you gotta do, down the Battle Road."

Sunday runs were the best! Do those still happen?
