21 and 48

Amy came up my way yesterday and we headed out to run a big Topsham road loop together. Although all road runs starting and finishing at our place mean a bit of traffic whichever way you go, it's fairly easy to get out into the country within a few miles where the roads are a bit more quiet. And because we started at 6:00 am, the majority of the roads were quiet for the first few hours, which was nice.

The sun was shining, the air smelled like tea roses and we had a good time catching up as we ran. We ran past a lot of fields filled with buttercups and daisies, got in a few good hills, saw three groundhogs, a Cedar Waxwing and said hi to the Bisson cows lounging in the meadow. The loop ended up being 21 miles and although the balls of my feet were feeling the pounding of the pavement in the last few miles, overall, I felt good and relaxed the whole time.

Later in the afternoon, we headed out to Five Island's to celebrate Mom and Dad's 48th anniversary with lobster, steamers, scallops and a gorgeous view. Yum :)
