My stupid attempt at running every road in Hopkinton, RI is drawing to a close. The "Hopkinton Road Gobble", though not officially commenced this year, is one of my child-like projects for 2014. I used (already counted) many of the roads that I had run in the past 1-3 years. I didn't really start keeping track of it officially until this year. My reason for it is....well, I don't really have one. I guess it is just that you have to run the boring miles too. Not everything can be awesome and adventure filled. Why not keep track and then attack specific areas as the town's roads dwindle down? Plus, I will then refer to myself and request that my immediate family refers to me as either "The Champion", "Champion", or even just "Champ"
Currently I have 13 public roads left, three of which are partials (10%, 50%, and 66% remaining). There are also 8 "not so public" roads left to go. With this, the unwritten rule is they must be run until confrontation/told to turn around/wild dogs with big testicles and sharp teeth. By far the majority of roads are north of I-95. Only four of them are south of I-95 (Crowthers, Dormar, Courtney, and Malo).
The goal is to finish it by the end of 2014 at which point my CHAMPION belt should arrive in the mail.
Here is what is left. I was going to post my own map with notes but it is not really clear. It is blurry. It is tiny. It is cryptic. I am lazy. View a street map of Hopkinton, RI (pdf):
