With Gail, flats south of town, to the dam in North Hadley and back. Some sun, some bits of light rain. That time of year when the light looks different, colors are changing, sun is low in the sky. Very pretty, but also a sign that winter is coming. But we should have some more good weather before then.

Sunderland bridge then rail trail bridge. Nice late afternoon, upper 50s and sunny, bit of a breeze out of the south. Did my usual thing of taking it easy when getting helped and working hard when getting hurt, so the pace was about the same in both directions. But not the heart rate.

Had a really nice visit from Alex yesterday, started out as dinner, turned into an overnight too. Excellent. Plus Phil and Margi here for dinner. Just fine.

At some point while talking to Alex about the junior program, or maybe it was something I read in preparation to talking to Alex, I became aware of something that was both good news and bad news.

I'm talking about the marathon fundraiser for the junior team, April of 2015. Good news because it brings back many fine memories, partly of my own running (and walking) of the race, mainly of all the folks who pitched in to give me motivation. Bad news in a way, because I gather that the last of those funds have been used. And used very well, supporting the team at NAOC in Whitehorse that won the Future Champions Cup, again.

And therefore also both a challenge and an opportunity. A challenge to come up with Marathon Fundraiser 2, to figure out something that will, like MF 1, somehow get lots and lots of folks to donate some money to help support our juniors. And a opportunity to do something that really needs to be done.

Already got my thinking cap on... :-)

2 PM

biking - dark blue bike 1:15:31 intensity: (9:58 @1) + (1:05:33 @2) 15.14 mi (4:59 / mi) +643ft 4:48 / mi
ahr:108 max:125 weight:140lbs

Chilly and windy, but I dressed about right so no problems. Leverett loop with Gail, got to give her a chance to use her lowest gears. :-)

Back sore this evening. Have to remember to stand more, certainly seems to help.

Mostly flat on the west side of the valley. Sunny, upper 40s, S 10 mph. Put an extra shirt on but just shorts below, thought it might be enough and it was just right.

ahr:136 max:157 weight:139lbs

Back roads in Whately. Upper 50s, breeze out of the west at about 10 so a crosswind most of the time. Decent effort.

5 PM


Plus a walk (hike?) earlier in the afternoon up to the upper reservoir at Northfield Mountain. Some aches, but enjoyed it.
