Bruce Freeman Rail Trail

We decided to run today on this newly opened Bruce Freeman rail trail. Apparently it was in construction for about 25 years. It's a beautiful trail. It goes through woods and wetlands and pretty neighborhoods, is covered by trees and goes along water streams. We ran up to the Hart Pond and back to Chelmsford center making it about 6.16 miles. We were still running 15 minute miles though. Also I have decided that hydration pack is a bad idea.

  1. Why is a hydration pack a bad idea? What have you been doing to stay hydrated on 6 mile runs?

  2. well the hydration pack I tried is a very clumsy thing, not to mention it makes you really hot while running. And it's kind of heavy too. I have decided to just run with a water bottle...or may be a fluid belt.
