April 19 (Saturday)

April 19 (Saturday) - Headed out late afternoon in Pembroke, MA for 10 miles on the roads and trails.  Felt great.  Running on flat MA roads really seems night and day at this point.  I was amazed at how easy a quicker pace feels when you aren't constantly going up hill ;).  I took it very easy for the first mile or so, then landed (after 3 miles) at the Willow Brook Preserve .  I hopped in there for about 3 miles (easy on trails and old carriage roads).  It was awesome running in there.  Pembroke itself (and neighboring  Duxbury) has a lot of very old properties and homes that are beautiful to run past.  This preserve was like going back to the 1600s-1700s.  Stonewalls, open fields, and old bridle paths.  At the far end was an observation tower I climbed to look out across the marsh.  Very cool.  Out another 3 back to the house.  1:08:45 for the trip which was really good considering the middle 3 miles were all slow trails.
