running the rails

hi every bloggie!
Esch! I'm trying to get this post up right before mom heads to work. Talk about last minute. Ugh.
The other weekend I went to a new rails to trails- the Bruce Freeman RT in Chelmsford, MA. I loved it. I think this might be my new favorite rail to trail. There was a pond for refreshing, side trails to explore, plenty of port-a-potties along the route, a stop w/ ice cream, coffee and even a sports bar! It was a furry nice one and highly recommend it.
See I was able to take water breaks along the Assabet River and the little streams- pawfect for cooling off during a run.
And here's one of the stops- an antique shop..tahdah your halloween foto shot of the day! Creepy faced pumpkin though... so I didn't want to look directly in his eyes.
The trail was decorated with artwork too! The artwork were scenes from long ago in Chelmsford.
Choochoo failure and the country side. I bet I could pee sketch one if they'd like!??
Oops instead I went into pure interpretative art mode! Look at me go!
More dance interpretive art from me. I hope someone throws me a dollar!
Okay believe it or not we ran 6 miles that day and parked right at the pond. Furry furry pawfect place to end. Okay here's your handsome shot of the day. Please ladees no droolies on the monitor.
You thought I'd just stand there and look handsome.. not this boy.
Yeppers refreshing!
Oh... I told you it was refreshing! Yahoo! Doing the classic norwood roachin'
Okay.. norwood done! (stole that peewee's catch line- ha)
Here's the trail link: If you are in the area, check it out. Happy Thursday :)
