Historic Running: Berlin Wall and Zakim Bridge
First am Saturday run ofSummer. Already 74 degrees before 5:30am. I wanted to run along water, shocker, I know. And I wanted to have an historic run. My plan was to run to Bunker Hill Monument andinto Charleston which I have never done before.
As I was running, I was getting closer to the Zakim bridge when I remembered that a piece of the Berlin Wall was close by. I remembergoing on a Duck Tour and that being pointed out. I saw it. In my mission to find a piece of the wall, new discoveries happened. I actually ran under the bridge, and found some really neat information about the bridge and canal history. There was a whole new sideof Cambridge, East Bridge that I didn't know existed. There is a skate board park and another park.
After all this wonderment, I still hadn't found the Berlin Wall and I knew it was close. I had to stop and google where the damn thing was. After an very unorganized and perhaps a crazed running pattern, I finally found it. At that point, I knew I would have to deal with Bunker Hill andCharlestown on another day.
This was such an exciting new discovery and run.
