So if the course is one mile, and the race is 62 miles, then they go around 62 times? I know this is very simple math, but I find it amazing that they go around the Beverly area 62 times! (from a dude who grew up in Beverly)

so, anyhoo - last year, when i finally wrapped my brain around that whole circuit thing - i laughed my *ss off...
