Running the Cape Cod Canal
The past two days, I’ve been running the off-Cape side of the Cape Cod Canal – and it’s all black pavement!
Living on the Cape side, it hadn’t occurred to me to cross the bridge for a run. Why would it be any different? But reports from our side are that the path is still covered and icy – while the plows are hitting the other side more frequently than they’re even plowing the roads! WHUT?!
So I wanted to let you all in on it… the Canal path is 7 miles in one direction, which means we can actually log some substantial training miles without looping around a neighborhood, sliding on our butts or stabbing our eyeballs out on the treadmill!
And there’s even some beautiful art along the way!
Personally, I parked down by the entrance to Scusset Beach in Sagamore. You can’t drive all the way in right now, so you will need to do a little out-and-back if you want to get all the way to the north end of the Canal. Click the map for your own PDF version!
So whether you’re looking for 14+ miles or anything less, get yer butt out there on the canal! I’m pretty sure I’ll see you out there! *high-five*
