Tuesday: Double zero. Intentionally trying to run few miles mid-week prior to Sunday's monster trail fest.
Wednesday: 7 miles. The Friday 445 club switched to a Wed edition this week. Tom led me on virgin roads for me, somewhere off Cove Road, saw the pond so often on turns I was afraid there was going to be a swim portion to his route today. I'll have to upload the Garmin route to figure it out. Neat section running on Fenway Beach in the pitch dark. 65 degrees and sprinkling rain. 6:53 pace.

now I can see where we actually were!
Friday: 5 easy morning run. Exploring in Wahaneeta and lower Woody Hill. I think I'll try to map this place out with distances and landmarks, as this is still a maze to me. Mix of dirt, sand, and rock trails. 1/2 mile tarmac, the rest trails.

Morning: Watched Mike B run his way to victory in the St. Michael's 5k. There were a few WTAC singlets out there today! Other WTAC'ers are off to NH - Muddy running DeMar and I think Josh running Smuttynose - will have to check that out next year.
Afternoon: 4 very easy miles on Tom Harvey loop in drizzling rain.
Nipmuck in the morning: Put out tomorrow's run gear, including a complete change of dry clothes, 3 GU packets, energy bar, waist pack/bottle, Gatorade and water. Ready to go ...
27 miles, including short warm-up. Nipmuck Trail Marathon. I survived! See separate write-up.
Weekly total: 43 miles
