Epic Train Trail run

Dan came up with the idea of a long run from Bradford to somewhere via rail trails.  I suggested a run that would end at the Winner's circle which would cover rail trails in Bradford, Boxford, Georgetown, Newbury, Newburyport, and Salisbury.   Somehow we convinced another 11 guys to join in the fun.  Temperatures ran from 6 degrees at the start to 12 at the finish.  We covered the 20.5 miles in just over 2:40.  The last time I did a run over 15 miles was nealry 6 years ago (not counting races), and so far I feel no worse for it.

Here are some pictures:
