this run is like a running tour of boston. commonwealth ave, the common, and downtown on the way out. the downtown can be a little crowded with people, especially at downtown crossing. but i think it is fun zig zagging through. the turn around point is at the end of a pier next to the aquarium and is one of the best point from which to look out onto the harbor. on the way back, the trip includes running through faneuil hall, up stairs near government center, around beacon hill,and over the salt and pepper bridge. once you cross the bridge, it is a little tricky getting onto the esplanade. you need to go down the stairs to the right, turn right about 10 feet later over a little wooden bridge, and cross memorial drive. the rest of the way back had beautiful views of the river and the city. it is neat to look back and see the entire city through which you have just run. this last part of the run can be a bit windy, but the dirt paths make up for it and feel great for tired feet. i end the run at the BU Bridge, and walk the last 5 minutes as a cool down. i recommend this run to anyone looking to explore boston and enjoy a scenic and diverse route.
