Michael McHugh Goes the Distance

Earlier this week an area resident and runner planned his sixth personal commemoration of Patriot’s Day.  On the actual anniversary of the Revolutionary era historic events, McHugh sets out at 9:30 PM from the location of Joseph Warren’s home office toward the Hancock-Clarke House in Lexington.  As described in a previous post, Dr. Joseph Warren dispatched Paul Revere and William Dawes on the Midnight Ride between 9:30 and 10:00 PM on April 18, 1775.

With all the disruptions in the Boston area this week, we wondered whether Mr. McHugh had any success with his own Boston Mini-Marathon.

He writes: “The run was great! The weather was beautiful and I ran with my colleague Jonathan Dowse.  We ran the first 10 miles at 7 minute/mile pace and got home [very late Thursday evening, April 18, 2013] just before the latest round of craziness began.  I’ve been home under lockdown all day [Friday].”

Huzzah!  How do you like those Warren (aka Roxbury) Russet apples?  I do believe that Michael McHugh and his friend carried forth the true spirit of Patriots’ Day this week.
