Day 12… Back on the road after taking the weekend off. 10 miles, Webster Square in Worcester to Grafton Common. That last loooong hill to get to the Common is a killah!
Day 10: Leicester Center to Webster Square. 4.3 miles along Route 9. This was my hometown for 40+ years. I got a nice welcome yesterday evening at the Leicester Library and a great send-off this morning from the Senior Center.
Only 4 miles today, for reasons I’ll explain in the next post.
Day 9…. West Brookfield to Leicester. 14 miles.
Chandler Walsh front Worcester News Tonight came to interview me while I was walking through East Brookfield. We stopped at the East Brookfield Baptist Church to speak to someone folks at community lunch. Chandler did a great job on this piece – thanks!! Getting press like this before I walk into a city helps a great deal.
Day 8 – One week on the road! – Quabbin Reservoir to West Brookfield Center – 13 miles. Tough going today, I forgot how many hills were from Amherst on the way out of Pioneer Valley.
Day 7: Amherst Center to Quabbin Reservoir. 13 miles.
Day 06: just 3 miles today. Used the downtime to update the website and try to arrange for places to stay in Southeastern Mass (still looking for Middleborough, Wareham and Norton). Uploaded photos. Two interviews, one with the Hampshire Gazette. This evening I wandered around downtown and collected messages. Thanks to Amherst Coffee.
South Deerfield to North Amherst: 7.2 miles
Day 4 Stats: Shelburne Falls to South Deerfield.
21,000+ Steps. Unfortunately my Fitbit is lost. It decided to go its own separate way somewhere between Shelburne Falls and Conway.
