Brick Reservoir

Yesterday was a cornucopia of running. I tackled 6.44 miles (approximately, but quite an accurate guess) before work, walked for ten minutes on the treadmill at 15% incline, and enjoyed a run with my pal Eddie at the Brick Reservoir.

Up to this point, the reservoir only existed as a curiosity when driving north on the Garden State Parkway. I remember it's construction, but even several years later I neglected to the research as to its exact location and title. Once I made the distinction between the Manasquan and Brick Reservoir, I knew I wanted to experience both.

Eddie made the five minute drive with me from his house and we chugged along the route ingesting gnats, bugs, and a few clouds of mystery flies. The reservoir is only 1.5 miles around and we were both fatigue from our early running pursuits. We ran one lap and walked another.

Overall, the reservoir was beautiful and true gem to the folks of Brick and bordering Wall Township.

  1. Good times, and I love the Brick Reservoir. Now we know the facility closes at 9PM sharp in summer!
