JFK 50 Miler

April 23rd, 2010 - Training - Chelmsford, MA - 4

Day 113 - Met up with Fil and Kelly at around the 4 mile mark (Brickhouse Pizza) on the freshly minted Freeman Trail for a light jog.

This was my first time running on the trail after hearing so much about it, and it's everything you could ask for in a trail that spans a handful of communities: well maintained, nice scenery, and flat. Flat because Glenn had just completed his progression run earlier in the day. Thanks, Glenn!

Went out about 2 miles and back again. Just wanted to continue to stretch out the legs before putting in serious mileage again. Kelly did awesome after running a 5K PR on Tuesday night. Keep it up Kelly and you'll be kicking Fil's ass in no time. Let him talk all he wants now. That's the way I dealt with him last spring :)

It's nice to have a trail like this, basically in my back yard, instead of having to go down to Bedford to hit the, just as equally nice, Minuteman Trail system.

Once completed, the proposed Freeman Trail will run from Lowell to Framingham, for a total of about 25 miles. Can't wait to run its entirety one day!
