It’s no San Antonio Rock ‘n’ Roll* half-marathon, but the Somerville Road Runners are putting on their 12th annual Thanksgiving Day road race in two plus weeks. The finish line (and post-race debriefing) is at The Burren, exactly what one needs prior to an extended weekend of extended family extended togetherness. It looks like the course goes up from Davis Square and turns at Broadway and Medford, just skirting Winter Hill. Close enough for promotional purposes at any rate. Oh, and yeah – I got new kicks, from Zappos. Rock on.
*Not to be pedantic, but I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking this should spelled be Rock ‘n Roll, Rock n’ Roll or even be concatenated to RockNRoll – anything other than the overly grammatically aware double single apostrophied abomination Rock ‘n’ Roll.
