I met Jay this morning in his neighborhood and we ran from his house out on some roads then onto some northboro trails. The trails were marked clearly (they even had mileage!) and were maintained quite well. They had a few boggy areas which had floating bridges, something I've never seen or run over. Run was 7.5 miles in length in just over and hour.
Checked out the Inov8 site and found that Abby Mahoney is running the wachusett race. She won the usatf mt. series in 07 and 09 (yikes!). Adding a new goal....not getting chic'd.
