MAR 8, 2017 WAWA: “Losing My Religion Run”

We’ve all heard the REM song, “Losing My Religion”, right?  This week’s WAWA is run-focused with special attention to the three Myers Park churches closest to our run route:  Myers Park Baptist, Myers Park Presbyterian, and Myers Park Methodist.  The course will be somewhat “plug and play”, meaning you’ll get to pick your own distance for this WAWA.  We’ll start at 5:40 am….and everyone should be done by 6:25 am for cool down and devotional.

And, depending on the route you select, like me you might “lose” or “gain” a new religion!

Here’s the workout:

First Loop (everyone does):  Starting at The Cornwell Center (CC), participants will run down Selwyn Avenue towards Myers Park Baptist Church (MPBC), turning around at the intersection of Queens & Selwyn.

Once participants return to The Cornwell Center, they’ll immediately head back towards MPBC, go past the Baptist church and continue towards Myers Park Presbyterian Church (MPPC).  At the intersection of Queens & Oxford, runners will turn around and head back to The Cornwell Center.

Finally, runners will again turn around in front of The Cornwell Center and head back up Selwyn/Queens, this time running towards/past Myers Park Methodist Church (MPMC).  At the intersection of Queens & Providence, runners will complete the last loop heading back to The Cornwell Center.

Total distance on the three church run for the first loop is 2.5 miles.

Second Loop (runner’s choice):  Using the distances below, runners will choose their route for the second loop.  For example, here’s a few options:

-Baptist & Methodist route:  0.80 miles total

-Presbyterian & Methodist route:  1.1 miles total

-Baptist & Presbyterian route:  0.6 miles total

-2 Methodists route:  1.3 miles total

Or you can simply repeat the three churches for 2.5 miles total on the second loop!
