Running Advent Calendar – Day 10 – Boston, Massachusetts, USA

10 Dec

Welcome to Day 10 of my Running Advent Calendar (day by day, I explore a running route from somewhere in the world). Today I will look at a particular running route in Boston, Massachusetts….not the Boston Marathon route, but rather a scenic route along the Charles River Esplanade.

Although I dream of one day running the Boston Marathon, I think for right now, I have better odds of running the Esplanade.

I have been to Boston several times as I have some family in that area, but most of my trips were as a child, so I did not have much of an opportunity to explore the area on the run.

I have always thought of Boston as a beautiful, historic city and this is why it is part of my Running Advent Calendar.

The Esplanade has 17 miles of riverside pathway, perfect for a run of just about any distance. Next time I head down to Boston, I just might have some family members point me in the direction of the Esplanade!

    When training for my first marathon last spring I did my first seriously long run (16 miles) along the St. Charles! It was absolutely beautiful, especially with all the crews out on the river!

      Sounds amazing! I hope I get back to Boston to do it one day!

    That’s my city! Just took my French bf for a beautiful walk along the esplanade when there in November. I’m not much of a runner, but it seems like the perfect place to lose yourself and enjoy a scenic run! 🙂
