If you're planning on this weekend's Clam Festival 5 Mile in Yarmouth, be aware that the spring high water and river run-off was not kind our Royal River path, and the section of the river walk path used by the race course has some washout on it.
About 1/3 of the width path has been washed out for short sections and it will be single track. You'll want to get to the left side and defend the position...stay left -- especially on the section after the path goes under Rte 1, for the next .3 mile or so. Basically from 3.8 to 4.2.
Did an angel whisper in your ear and hold you close and take away your fear...In those long last moments
During my run last night I had to pause for the Amtrak train heading north to Freeport, no big deal, probably less than a minute. Then it struck me out the blue -- the Clam Festival 5 Miler crosses these tracks twice during the race, and the southbound train comes through Yarmouth right before 8AM. Race time is....8AM.
