We were out and about a bit not long ago, and I took the opportunity to measure some roads. Woodbury still has a few dirt ones left, and now that I’ve built my mileage up a bit, I’m planning to get back to running on them. Decades ago I had a set of back-road routes that I could play with, adding a little mileage here, cutting some off there, hitting long flats for speed, and working my favorite just-right hills. Not all dirt, but mostly quiet and leafy. The sorts of things any runner lucky enough to live in the country does. I sort of remember the loops, and I sort of don’t. And some of the roads have been developed beyond recognition. So an ongoing survey is in progress, and I’ve already put in some reasonable mileage on a few old favorites. But it’s going to be really great come spring.
