Hi, I am Emily Keating and I am running for Chelsea!

Hi, I am Emily Keating and I am running for Chelsea!

It would be a difficult feat to run a fully flat race within the city limits of Newton, and the Chilly Half Marathon has a few rolling hills (the region is known as “The Newton Hills” by commentators during the Boston Marathon), but the race was designed purposefully to include a nice level start and finish. Runners leave from Newton South High School and briefly head south in the Chestnut Hill Village section, before turning north under Route 9, then across Beacon Street in the Waban neighborhood. This is the out-and-back section, where all the uphills also become downhills! At about Mile 4 the course goes into the clockwise loop section along Lowell and Cabot Streets and turns east toward the grand Chestnut Hill neighborhood. Then the gradual climb starts after Mile 5 to eventually crest the top of Heartbreak near Boston College at Mile 8 before the swoop down to Mile 10. At this point on the course, those runners who dare to pause would be rewarded with a spectacular view of the Boston skyline. The final leg repeats the gentle start near the Charles River Country Club for an easy cruise into the finish at the high school. That Race was this morning at 7:30am and every time I got a little bit tired I thought about my friend Chelsea, her battle with liver disease and how lucky I am to even be healthy enough to be out there running.
