I miss getting out on those trails on the weekends. Do you have the Weston trails map from the town? I noticed you were on roads sometimes, I think there are trails to avoid that .

I forgot the print the maps out, so we emerged from Jericho in the wrong place, and had to run along main street for a bit to get back to the trails I knew of.

They're really friendly trails. Soft and squishy, nothing too hilly, just sort of pleasant.

Alex, now & then I see you running in my footsteps:-). I ran at Ash St. reservoir & environs frequently in the late 70s when I lived in Newton. I remember when the fence was put around it. It was once a tempting swimming "hole". Also running on the Weston/Regis trails, same period. I had 3 addresses in Newton from fall '75 to fall '80, 2 were in Newtonville near Newton North HS & one near Newton Center. Running all those roads and running to work in Boston from Chestnut Hill reservoir were facts of life then. As a 'one-off', ran Newton to Chelsea, where I worked, following the blizzard of Feb., '78 when Boston was closed to traffic. Finally visited Bunker Hill monument (your environs) 2016 when staying in Charleston for a few nights for a Boston CME.

I watched the rainy Boston marathon last April from Wellesley center & stopped at Regis on the way home. There was a womens' lacrosse team practicing in what seemed as hard a rain as could be. It was most impressive.
