Emma and I met Jim and Shauna at Maine Roasters Coffee in Falmouth for an 8 mile run. When we moved to Portland in 2004 this was where we first met other local runners, with the Maine Track Club group that meets there on Saturday morning. We haven't been back with that group in a while but it's always nice to go back there for a run once in a while.
The route we chose was pretty hilly, and when we realized we might not make it up to a full 8 miles we threw in an extra trip up and down Town Landing in Falmouth (middle of the elevation profile).
As it worked out the route was actually 8.5 miles, Emma's longest run since the VT50 in September. It's been a long recovery process for her but progress is definitely being made, and it's so nice to be able to run with her again.
