Newport RI

Proof I imagine that I am addicted. The morning after a raucous drunken night of bachelor partying in Newport, I went for an "easy 3". And I'm happy I did... saw some cool stuff.

Allandale Woods

I have been living in Jamaica Plain since 2005.  8 years later, I am embarrassed to admit that I just learned of the trails of Allandale Woods Urban Wild.  I have run countless miles around Jamaica Pond, in Franklin Park, around the quiet roads of Franklin Park Cemetery, and of course among Harvard's Arnold Arboretum.  But for the first time ever I wandered into Allandale Woods, and kind of got lost!
