I ran from Paul Revere's house in the North End to his capture site in Lexington. The weather was perfect and it was very easy to follow the route there. As a history major in college, I had so much fun recreating this route and hope more women recreate it as well! I left on a Saturday morning at 7:33 and it took me 2:29:18 to finish. I missed a turn twice but was able to quickly hop back on the route. It was a little shorter than the posted distance, although both my run and when I mapped it out were a little short (17.25 versus the posted 17.41). I ran the route unsupported- my sister dropped me off at the start and my boyfriend picked me up at the finish, as I live in Boston and needed a ride home. I carried all my water and fuel with me in an REI Swiftland Hydro 5 pack.
