Same place as last week: the steps of the O'Connor Recreation Center at Homewood campus at 8 AM. Park on one of the streets surrounding campus, such as University Parkway or Charles Street, and be aware of time limits. Note that the Rec Center will be closed for the holidays, so don't plan on using their restrooms or water fountains.
Half marathoners will step up to 7 miles this week, while marathoners will have a cut back week and run "only" 9 miles.
If you want water, carry it. It will be on the warm side on Saturday. Since I anticipate low attendance for this holiday weekend run, we'll probably run as one no-drop group.
Sign up for carpooling if you need or can provide a ride, or consider running to the start for some bonus miles. If there is interest, we can have hot chocolate at my (Emily's) apartment after the run. I live right by Homewood.
