My other run during our vacation was to continue my 3 year tradition of running around Newfound Lake. It started when I was training for the NH Marathon in 2007 and running around the lake meant training on the actual course. After running in the NH Marathon again in 2008, I decided that I would continue to run that 16 mile loop each visit for as long as I can.
I started the run without any plan. It was the coldest day of the week, so I ran fast to get the body warmed up quick. The faster pace felt great, so I decided to keep pushing it. I ran about 75% of loop in the dirt on the shoulder. In some places it was smooth, while in others it felt like a semi-technical trail.
The town of Hebron. This 210 year old town features a village square that has barely changed in that amount of time.

Big Sugarloaf Mountain. Summit #2 on my Elwell Trail adventure.
An area of the lake called the "Ledges". It is also the deepest part of the lake. 180'.
I don't know the story behind this lighthouse. Just thought it was a cool pic.
I ran the 16 miles in 1:56. That's cookin' for me on a training run. But man, did it feel good!
