Awesome trail run with Josh Miller and Jonathan Perrino around the orange loop at Middlesex Fells and then a Skyline trail loop with Josh afterwards.  2,000 ft of elevation gain and I was only 20 minutes away from home!  Great rugged single track terrain.  Ended with a half a mile or so in Somerville getting to the maple syrup festival to meet the family.

1.5 miles on the Midstate Trail in Fitchburg, MA near the Great Wolf Lodge, then 6.5 more on the treadmill at the hotel.  The original plan was to do 8 on the Midstate Trail, but the portion I "ran" was really slow (super rockly, narrow--borderline bushwacking, and sopping wet).  Lots of climbing that I'm sure would have produced beautiful views if it hadn't been cloudy and raining.

5 with Peter on his bike. The first 2.5 were fast (with the wind) and the second 2.5 not so much :). But he made it home without any complaining and proud of how far he went on his two wheeler. 3 alone afterwards.
