We've been trying to get our families together for weeks now, but somehow between our family schedules, we simply haven't found the time. Amazing how that happens. At some point in our emails back and forth, Shannon suggested getting together for a morning run. She said she'd been running on the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust trails around the Crystal Spring property, and wanted to show them to me. I am always looking for new trails, and it is always fun to run with friends, so I asked Ryan to be on kid wrangling duties this morning, and I headed over to Nate & Shannon's house for a 6:30 am start.
It was great to catch up with Shannon as we ran along, and I really enjoyed the trails! OK, so they are basically totally flat, but that is just how all the terrain is around downtown Brunswick/Bowdoin College. The trails were in really nice shape, were all signed, and there was a good variety for a small area. We ran through a big wide blueberry barren, stopping to pick some delicious berries along the way of course :), ran through some fields, nice woods, along a few little ponds and streams. A great way to get in 6 miles on a Tuesday morning. Thanks for a fun run, Shannon, and looking forward to meeting up with you next week to run again!
