Trail Running 1:12:00  7.87 mi (9:09 / mi)
I drove to Great Barrington, as I thought that I had a dental appointment at 4 p.m., but it turned out that the appointment secretary made a mistake. Rather than let the drive be a complete waste of time, I decided to drive a bit further north to Housatonic, where I could run on the very flat bike trail. That route is well shaded, the footing is excellent and there is hardly much traffic of any sort on it, although it is used by hikers, runners and mountain bikers.
I started at the St. Bridget's Cemetary just south of town and headed north to Main Alford Road, passing by the Sportman's Club just before the turnaround point. The trail basically follows Route 41 north.
I started way too fast, probably venting my frustration from driving from Lee to the non-existent dental appointment, but I worked hard to keep the pace up as best I could. Certainly one of the faster runs that I've done recently, since I have mainly been running on technical trails, rather than nice flat trails. :-)
